Mint Jeans Reincarnated

 {Blazer: Daisy Rae; Tank: similar; Shorts: similar similar; Scarf: similar; Jewelry: Premier Designs; Ring: similar; Shoes: similar; Purse: Jessica Simpson similar similar}

You might remember my post Life of the Mint Jeans, where I told the story of the short life of my mint jeans and what led to their destruction. They put up good fight the whole way through but sadly, they didn't make it to the end as mint jeans.

Well, here they are reincarnated as lime green shorts! Yes, these are the same bottoms just with a whole new look! Hopefully their life as lime green shorts will last longer then their life as mint jeans.

If you are dying to destroy your mint jeans and make them into lime green shorts, just follow the steps in this post to create the look ;-)

    1. Have fun creating your own lime green shorts! I love mine and I like that they are a little bit longer because it is so hard for me to find shorts that the butt doesn't hang out of. lol

    1. Thanks! It was a total accident that they turned out like this. Had I actually been trying, they probably would have looked horrible. lol. I'm the least crafty person ever!

  46. LOL, when I first read the title and looked at your shorts I thought- these aren't even close to mint. So glad that I'm not going colorblind and that they are in fact, lime! They are super cute, and I am going to need to learn how to make my mint jeans into lime green shorts! I love how you paired it with the blue blazer!

  62. Kacie,
    Hello! Just popped over from Marion's site. I love this outfit so much! All of it. Just looking at this picture, you seem to have a laid back yet sophisticated style. Love the mix of colors and the boho like scarf and hair, matched with the nude pumps. I will now be looking forward to more wonderful outfits!
    Best, Whitley
