Monday Mash Up: Mint & Peach


I am loving the mint & peach craze...I jumped right on the bandwagon. Although to be fair, my blog is already peach! ;) 

I have actually been searching for a perfect pair of mint skinny jeans for Spring! 

 I have always been so inspired by Weddings.  I get a ton of inspiration from browsing Wedding Blogs and websites. 

So I decided to Mash Up my love for Mint & Peach and my love for Wedding inspiration and create this pretty Etsy Treasury!
