Resort To The Newbies!

Greetings, Mint Julep Bloggers, on this sunny, January afternoon!

If you haven't already met us in the store, please let us introduce ourselves... We are the newest Mint Julep gals, Hannah and Erin!

And here are a few of our favorite new things: Resort-wear. We will show you!

Hello, all! Originally from Nantucket, MA, I am currently new to Boston, and loving it! I spend my days studioing on my jewelry (, or working in the Julep. I have so much fun here!
So here are some special items I have fallen in love with:

Embracing the weather! It has been a little nasty lately (not like today), so you might as well make it a fun look with our assortment of Marimekko umbrellas. Stay warm and add some color to your wardrobe with this green Beth Bowley jacket, too!

The boyfriend shirtdress is definitely an in this season. This is an exciting new brand we have called Tylho, and I can't wait to wear it around the city! Cinch the waist with one of our Hyde leather belts, and you will look casual chic anywhere!

This classic pink Shoshanna dress is just so much fun. It is such a happy color, and a flattering fit that will look great on any figure! You will be the star of any party, and very pink. Need I say more?

I hope I have given you all some fun new things to ponder for the upcoming seasons! Next time you pop into the store, be sure to say hello!

Greetings fellow fashionistas! I am originally from Rhode Island and Graduated from Boston's Suffolk University in 2007. I was in a traveling theatre company all over the US for a year before moving back to Boston where I have blissfully been working at Mint Julep since July and loving every minuet of it! Here are some of my top picks for this vaction season!

I Love this bright Milly mini skirt it's perfect for transitioning seasons. It can be worn now with tights and boots or with sandals as the weather warms up! Paired with this adorable button down Ella Moss blouse it's perfect for an island getaway or cruising around town.

Ok Party Girls...This dress speaks for itself... This classic Shoshana cut strapless complete with pockets will bring some Caribbean color to any fun affair now through the upcoming summer season!

I hope this helps brings some warm wishes and ideas for what's in style this season! Thanks for visiting! Next time you are in the store be sure to introduce yourselves! <3 Erin

Wishful Thinking...

It's especially on days like this dreadfully rainy and grey one that I am happy to look through the racks and see the bright, colorful pieces that make up our fabulous resort collection this season at Mint Julep. Even if the warmest climate I get to experience is right here inside the shop, I look at my favorite resort-wear by Shoshanna, Nanette Lepore, and Milly and am transported to a warm island...

Whether you're lucky enough to be taking a real vacation or just lusting after the idea, check out the lovely flowing, cheerful frocks that will surely brighten your day, no matter where in the world it's spent. Best yet, tons of new resort pieces have just been added to the website, so even if you're huddled at home avoiding the blizzard or uninviting downpour, you can cuddle up with cocoa and shop Mint Julep online!

Come check it out and see which shirt I'll be rocking.
