Yesterday/Today: Mint Perfection.

Since I'm so inspired by things of the past, I decided it might be fun to start a new little series on the blog ... yesterday / today. The series will take a look at things that are chic today, as compared to pieces from the past that inspired those trends.

Earlier this week I got an email from my friends at Layla Grayce showcasing all of the beautiful mint green items they have on their site. Seeing all the mint together in one place made me realize instantly the color connection from the vintage jadite pieces that were once stacked on kitchen shelves everywhere. The gorgeous milky green glass has long been a favorite of mine, especially against fresh white, as a display piece just perfect for styling.

Though I am pretty sold on a neutral palette, this summer trend is so vintage and yet so current for today that I can't help but fall for it. I love that it goes effortlessly from a casual day at the beach to the most glamorous red carpet event without missing a beat.

Have you collected any jadite? Find a favorite mint green piece? Would love to hear about it! And, would love your suggestions for future posts in the yesterday/today series!
