J.Crew Factory, which has quickly become one of my favorite clothing stores, has such wonderful stuff! I recently hit their outlet this past weekend and stocked up on a few essentials. I had been lusting after their shawl-front cardigans for awhile and saw that they were half off, so I decided to stock up. I chose the mint color because A- I am trying to break out of my “basic black-gray-navy-white-cream that will match with everything” mentality and B-it’s such a FUN color. I mean, doesn’t mint just make you happy?!
I went with this classic (and incredibly comfortable) outfit:
I love that this cardigan lays flat on across the chest and stays put for the most part, unlike other button-front cardigans that gather/fall by your armpits or sides of your boobs (who’s with me?!) unless you button some or all of the buttons. It’s very comfortable, effortless and flows nicely. Even belting it would be cute!

But what other colors would go well with mint? Obviously, black, gray, white and cream are safe options. Navy also looks really nice with it in my opinion. But I think coral (one of my favorite colors), would be so cute!
