Addicted: Mint and Pink

I’m not the kind of teacher who sticks to a uniform of basic blacks and common khakis (as if you couldn’t have already guessed that). My work attire is always comfortable, casual, and colorful. I’m sure there’s a hefty helping of composition handbooks that stress to “dress like the authority,” but who says the authority needs to look like a stick in the mud?! So yesterday, it being April 1st and Easter hues being so wonderfully on my mind, I snatched up this bright mint blouse (on sale!) at Francesca’s Collections with a funky layering of pink ‘n textured jewels. Little did I know, I was dealing with such an ultimately striking color palette!

Beyond excited that I had tapped into a color combo so cool to the core, I wore the get-up to class this morning with a pair of navy slacks. The response?

“Mrs. Johnson, you remind me of an Easter egg!”

Intended as a compliment rather than a statement of awesome truth, I was probably the happiest teacher in the entire school today, just knowing I boasted the fun hues of spring and sweet holiday. Needless to say, the search for more mint and more pink was on, and I am more than excited with the loveliness that I quickly uncovered…
