I have been completely obsessed with the mint trend this season and when planning some must do stops during our recent NYC trip, Laduree Soho had to be checked off the mint list. I have wanted to have their amazing macarons for some time now and let me tell you, they did not disappoint! I’m sure our 10:30am champagne may have helped to impair my taste buds but man oh man those were some amazing fresh treats! And hey, I was on vacation! I wanted to stroll in dressed the part, my amazing mint Louis Vuitton bag via my fave site Trendlee, in hand. I was beyond excited to receive it and ah, it looks even more beautiful in person. It sat there on our cute little table, as if watching me in all of my excitement, taking in the special moments along with me. Eric was making me laugh, holding a macaron and his glass of champagne with a pinky out, mocking my faux Parisian look. Being completely out of place in this girly wonderland but going with the flow for me. “It’s your Birthday trip babe. I’ll eat all the macarons I have to” When we kept seeing more and more bloggers fill the outdoor and indoor cafes, tons of equipment and props in hand we both couldn’t help but laugh at the silliness of it all. But hey, when in Laduree! There’s a reason there are thousands of Instagram pages dedicated to macaron love. I took a final look around the gorgeous dining room and we walked out onto the sunny street, holding hands. There is nothing better than walking around the streets of Manhattan, except when you are walking hand in hand with your best friend. The one who will put up with all the macaron shoots while he would rather be watching a football game, and totally get your excitement over that perfect mint bag.
I couldn’t help but put together a whole mint round up. When I say I’m obsessed with this color, I mean obsssssssessed! There is nothing that feels more fresh and current for the spring summer season. So have a look at all my faves below and happy shopping!
