LOFT Modern Straight Leg Jeans, Sz 4P, $25 (buy here)
I've been admiring the mint trend on bloggers like Jean and Blair, but wasn't sure if I was too late to join in. These jeans fit exactly like I want them - fits waist / hips well, slim in the thighs / knees, and then straight through the calves. The material is a soft and comfortable twill.
Verdict: Purchased and worn already :)
One note to add, these stretch and get baggier throughout the day so size down (I wish I had! Hoping to shrink them in the dryer).
LOFT Stripe 3/4 Sleeve Sweater, XXSP, $10 (buy here)
LOFT Striped Sweater Pencil Skirt, XSP
The sweater has a rather roomy fit in the torso for one of those slouchy, relaxed fits. I'd normally wear XSP but was able to size down for this.
Verdict: Bought. I love the stripes and the relaxed torso (good for mommy tummies!). Plus the price is so good!
I also tried on the pencil skirt for fun. I love the stripes but it's a little too body-con for my tastes. I probably should have sized up to see how that looked but was in a hurry (see that little boy / stroller in the background? LOL).
LOFT Vintage Eyelet Ribbon Waist Jacket, Sz 2, $45
This is such a pretty and romantic piece but it made me feel a little boxy. I also wasn't so crazy about the cuffs contrasting so much from the black.
Verdict: No, not for me.
LOFT Striped Sweater, XS, $25
I loved the way they did the stripes on this sweater - it has a little bit of a tie-dye effect. This was very light-weight and a tiny bit sheer. It'd be perfect as a summer sweater if the weather here wasn't blazing hot all summer long.
Verdict: I hemmed and hawed on this one, but ultimately decided I didn't need it.
Button Shoulder Stripe Sweater, XS, $20 (buy here)
So many cute details on this sweater - the buttons on the shoulders, the navy / orange stripe combo, and the overall fit. This one was a more substantial knit than the one above so could be worn in spring / fall as well.
Verdict: I came thisclose to buying but held back. I've been buying too many things!

Do you think it's too late to buy mint-colored items?
