Mint Chocolate Chip

Dress: Vintage via Goodwill, $4 // Belt: Goodwill, $2 // Shoes: N.Y.L.A, courtesy of Lucky Magazine

This breezy vintage dress is another item from last week's Goodwill haul. I love that it will work for various occasions. The sturdy fabric and structured fit make it office-appropriate, while the carefree stripes and color palette are ideal for a spring picnic or summer barbecue.

Since a few of you have asked, I will be doing a post with thrifting tips soon!

Great find!!! I think you have named the color of the dress quite appropriately. The belt tops it all off, like sprinkles on an ice cream sundae!!
