Mint Tee Easter Treat

20140419-212545.jpg

Happy Easter!

We are excited for a day full of brunches, Cadbury eggs, and most importantly, Easter sales! We snapped this shot of us wearing our Mint tees last Sunday before our final day of Coachella. It’s no secret how much we love the unique design and comfy material of our Mint tees (see past reviews here & here). We’ve worn them all year long, dressed up and down, making them a staple in each of our wardrobes.

And until the end of today (4/20), you can add a Mint piece to your own closets while the entire Mint Clothing site is 30% off! Talk about a real Easter treat. Just enter the code “Easter30” at checkout.

Have a Happy Easter!

Friday Find Revisit: Mint Clothing Company

mint_fridayfind

Six months ago, in the very beginning stages of this blog, we had the idea of highlighting unique companies that fit our coastal states of mind with a “Friday Find” feature. The first “find” was Mint Clothing Company, a made-in-California brand made for the California girl (and the California dreamer). We fell in love with the comfy chic aesthetic of the Mint brand, along with its uber-stylish founder, Jessica “Jess” Snyder.

Since writing our post, we have seen Mint popping up everywhere, from Glamour.com to ABC’s “The Bachelor”. We couldn’t be more thrilled for Mint’s success, and we were even more thrilled to learn that Mint is launching its highly-anticipated Spring/Summer ’14 collection next week!

Jess has expanded her ever-popular tees into a whole wardrobe of it’s-so-comfy-I’m-never-taking-it-off staples, including maxi dresses, shorts, and classic tees and tanks. The lookbook is full of outfits that instantly transport you to a summer state of mind. The versatility of every piece is undeniable; we can imagine some pieces under light layers for spring and some shining alone with just a few accessories.

It was next to impossible to just pick one “go-to” outfit from the collection because we just want one of everything (and we already agreed we just can’t share). So, after gushing over the lookbook and the sneak peek video, check out how we would style some of our favorites from the Mint S/S ’14 collection:

Find Friday | Mint Clothing Company

Happy Friday, everyone! This is our first “Find Friday” – which is all about our newest and most favorite “finds”, and why we are obsessed with them! Get ready to fall in love with our much-loved brands, clothing trends, and other little treasures we find along the way, from the East to West (coast, of course).

Coming to you from the Left Coast, Mint Clothing Company creates luxurious and amazing tees for the laid-back lady. A true labor of love from creator Jessica Snyder, each t-shirt has a unique photo that embodies the California beach girl lifestyle (and yes, mermaids). One shirt will make you rethink everything you ever knew about a throw-on-and-go outfit. Being a lifelong surfer, Jessica wanted to “bring to life the magic of living a surf lifestyle.” And just recently celebrating their one-year anniversary (congrats!), MCC is becoming the essential brand for surf girls, beach lovers, and fashionistas all over the country.

I can proudly say that I am now an owner of a Mint t-shirt, and if I could get away with wearing it every day, I would. All of the adorable images made it hard to pick just one, but after narrowing it down to the “mermaid tee” and “the polka dot bikini girl tee, polka dots won out (plus, Emmy was eyeing that mermaid tee for herself).

Of course, the day it arrived I had to wear Mint out for the night. Just a few nights later, “Polka Dots” made another appearance with a black maxi skirt, turquoise jewelry and a bold lip in Covergirl Eternal Lip Perfection (a Tappen sister staple). That ensemble has become one of my favorites, but the simplicity of a Mint t-shirt gives you the option to style an endless amount of outfits. Even though “Polka Dots” is styled as a female muscle tee (no…not that kind of muscle tee…yikes), it is beyond flattering on the body. Plus, one thing to make you even more obsessed, the sizes! Not a typical small, medium, large, but more like sizes one, two, and three. Yes, girl, rock that size 2!

Top 5 Reasons We Love Mint Clothing Company:

  1. Every T-shirt is designed, and made in California. Yay!
  2. The images for the tees are super cute, with a splash of vintage.
  3. Each shirt has its own unique style with a flattering fit on any shape, plus you got to love that sizing!
  4. I could live in the 50/50 poly-cotton blend that make up these t-shirts – so soft and comfy.
  5. Jessica Snyder! Not only is her passion felt in every stitch, but her own personal style is fantastic.
