"Mint" to Be + A Mint Julep Giveaway

Wearing – Sweater: The Mint Julep Boutique | Jeans: Old Navy {sold out} | Shoes: BCBG Paris | Necklace: {old} w/ David Yurman enhancer | Hat: American Eagle {similar} | Jacket: Marc Jacobs {old} | Bracelets: David Yurman 1, 2 | Ring: David Yurman | Watch: Micheal Kors

It may be winter, but this girl isn't feeling the cold weather anymore. I may have been born and raised in Indiana, but I dream of weather that is sunny and 65+ degrees year round. Sounds like I need to move to San Diego, right?!

While I love a good jewel-toned sweater and some boots, I also love the soft palette of colors that you typically see in spring. So what's a girl to do when it's winter and you're yearning from spring? Embrace a palette of mint, pink and white on a snowy day! I received this sweater from The Mint Julep Boutique and I couldn't be more excited to wear it. It's soft colors, comfortable fabric and adorable bow and chiffon detailing make this the ultimate Jaime-esque sweater. I decided to take advantage of the sunny, winter day and break out an outfit that not only pulled my out of my gloomy winter mood, but also looks super season appropriate when paired with the right accessories–a fun pink military coat, distressed white denim and metallic silver heels.

But seriously, is it spring yet? These single degree temps and windy days are making it a miserable time for this style blogger and her photos. To help break you out of your winter slump, The Mint Julep Boutique is offering one of our readers a $25 gift card! They have some of the most stylish pieces and we were so humbled to collaborate with them. Enter for your chance to win using the Rafflecopter widget below. Good luck my stylish friends!
