Mint Jeans: From Summer to Fall

Hello loves!

Can you believe it's already nearly the middle of August? Cooler weather is swiftly approaching and, like most of you, I'm anxiously awaiting the return of riding boots and pumpkin spice lattes. And good news, ladies! Don't pack up your summer wardrobe just yet, because some of the biggest trends from summer are sticking around for autumn... such as mint skinnies!

{Side note: I have a pair from Zara that I'm crazy about. I almost cried when I thought about hiding them away in the depths of my closet until next spring!}

Here's my go-to look for transitioning mint skinnies into fall:



{color crush necklace}{zig zag sequin tee}{wildflower bracelet}
{mint skinny jeans}{dome satchel}{leather ballet flats}

As the weather cools down, try pairing mint skinnies with neutral colors {think tan, beige, and black} and adding accessories with bold pops of color. Mix it up with prints on top: chevron and polka dots are both fabulous choices this fall! Leather ballet flats are perfect for class or errands, and to dress up this look simply add some black pumps. I'm really loving {these Kate Spade wedges}. And to tie it all together, a classic leather satchel makes the finishing touch.

For more inspiration, take a look at these gorgeous get-ups...

Love, Cait

  1. I love those patent Kate Spade's...they may end up in my closet, I'm debating. I don't think I could rock mint skinnies, but these outfits are adorable. camel/beige is one of my favorite colors for fall and I love it paired with the softness of mint.

  2. Such a great idea. Transition to the fall is hard here, I think because it is still so hot even into October.

  14. Girl, you ROCKED this round up! Obsessed with it all. Now, I just need to get a pair of mint jeans. It's so hard for me to find skinnies that look right on me. And, I must admit, I am just not ready for Fall...I think it's because I live in Texas and know that I still have at least 1-2 months left of heat!
