Mint with a Cherry on Top!

I love the color combinations of mint green and red together, in fact I love them so much, that combo is also the color palette in my kitchen, at home.

After recently cleaning out my closet and trying to organize items by color. I realized how much the fondness of these colors, reflected in my personal wardrobe as well. So I decided to put together a couple of outfits using some pieces I already had in my closet, and wear them for a few days in a row.....

 I present to you "Mint with a Cherry on Top"
