There are things that can automatically make you look better – good lighting, a great hair day, the perfect outfit. But you know what makes everyone look best? All of those things in front of an Ivy Wall. With spring in full swing here in Texas, our greenery has been thriving, making these walls even more lush than usual. With Fiesta upon us (the event all San Antonio natives, and fans look forward to every April – just don’t tell anyone that we’ve never been), our trips downtown will get scarce.
Per Mint Society usual, a few hijinks ensued trying to take advantage of this perfect ivy wall. Patricio disrupted a rather large ant pile, but like a true professional kept on going. The neighbors became very curious on our intentions, but one sweet man with an even sweeter dog offered to take our picture because “we looked great”. So here's to you, man with dog – Thank you for the confidence boost! These not-so-isolated incidents are becoming the norm during our shoots, and have inspired us to not only document our own outfits, but the outfits of our passerbyers who want to take part – So stay tuned for our own HONY-esque posts coming soon.
We wore our usual mix of J.Crew, including a shirt I ordered the moment it was released, and if you’re just as obsessed as I am with it, guess what? It comes in a dress. Patricio went hi-low with a NY Yankees tee, J.Crew denim jacket and Cole Haan loafers. Spring is about bringing some of those items from the back of the closet that can only be worn with the weather is mild and the flowers are blooming. Spring won’t last long here in Texas as we will soon be thrusts into temperatures of 100+, but we’ll take this easy-going weather as long as it lasts. So pull out your tees and your whites, schedule brunch at your favorite spot and enjoy the season; You can find us avoiding any Fiesta events that involve chicken on a stick.
