Melt Away Winter in a Mint Green Sweater

Spring will be here soon enough, and even though it’s still chilly outside, I’ve been starting to wear lighter, brighter colors. Today I’m excited to partner with Nordstrom to bring you this fabulous outfit that melts away winter and is the perfect transition into spring.

Color is everything to me, so I went gaga over this gorgeous mint green pullover. (similar green sweater here) It’s the most breathtaking shade of green you’ll ever see, so clear and fresh that it looks like it belongs in a beautiful garden full of gorgeous spring flowers. After a winter of black, gray, and burgundy, this pastel jumped off the hanger at me!


This sweater is from Eileen Fisher, a popular brand at Nordstrom with women over 40. They’re known for their simple, beautiful, and comfortable clothes that all work together. When I think of Eileen Fisher, I think of relaxing clothes with effortless elegance. They’re perfect for my casual, midlife lifestyle.


My lovely mint sweater is made from breathable organic cotton and linen yarn. Eileen Fisher is big on natural materials and dyes, which makes her clothes look and feel beautiful, and I feel good wearing them because I know I’m kind to the environment.

I talked about her pieces mixing and matching; this scarf is a good example. I often come across a top and think it would be nice if the brand had designed a scarf or some other small thing to wear with it. Eileen Fisher has taken care of that. This light and airy mint green scarf with subtle stripes and festive tassel fringe works perfectly with my pullover. It also mixes and matches with lots of other pieces in her collection.

My scarf looks lovely, but I like a little sparkle, so I’ve added this Fringe Necklace.


Did you notice the back of the sweater? It’s got a high-low thing going on. It’s a little longer in the back than the front, making it look much more modern than a regular sweater and easy to layer. If you wear a button-up shirt underneath, it will peek out the front of the sweater.


White jeans are the light and airy backdrop to cool, soft mint, but you could also pair this mint sweater with black pants if you felt it was too early to wear white. This would look quite stunning, too. The scarf has small black stripes, which would tie nicely with black pants. Mint + black is a great way to transition from winter to spring.

I like ankle-grazing jeans best. I think they’re more sporty and modern than full-length. A bit of stretch always helps too!


This is a fab outfit you can wear shopping, traveling, or out for a bite. It’s versatile, which is nice because when I spend good money on clothes, I like to be sure I get lots of use out of them.


What I also really like about this sweater is that it’s lightweight. You get that hip, layered look but aren’t weighed down. I love wearing my mint sweater with a crossbody bag to go hands-free. My favorite is this oval, pebbled leather Michael Kors crossbody bag in the nude. The light shade keeps the whole look soft and fresh.


I’ve got to mention my shoes. I adore sneakers ( so practical ), and these cute perforated sneakers work perfectly with my outfit.

They’re suede and the prettiest, soft pinky/brown color. They read neutral, and they look great with mint. Plus, the lacy perforations draw your eyes in, giving the shoe a natural feel that goes with the organic knit.


I’m ready for spring! I can’t wait to get down south in my new outfit and start soaking up the sun.

  1. Beautiful outfit, Deborah — the mint green sweater is so fresh with your coloring. I’ve got a case of spring fever just looking at this outfit. I love the nude perforated sneakers too. And I am going to shop for those white jeans!

    I’ve been an Eileen Fisher fan for nearly 20 years. Her clothing is beautifully made, classic, and comfortable. When I can’t figure out what to wear to a story interview (I’m a freelance journalist) or an event, I always reach for an elegant EF jacket, fabulous knit slacks, or one of her simple dresses. So easy to accessorize. And EF SHOES are so incredibly comfortable — I am embarrassed to admit how many pairs I’ve collected in recent years!

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
