FRIDAY STYLE: MINT & CHOCOLATE

??????????????????????????????? ?????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

I have to admit that mint green is one of my favourite colours. Unfortunately, it is a pastel and pastels can look a bit out of place if it’s not sunny out. However, this top is a slightly darker shade of mint and when toned down even more with brown it works for all seasons. By contrast you could pair this top with another pastel like pink or lilac to create a really bright and sunny look.

This top is from New Look and I love the chiffon and frilly style of it. It is see through so I put a brown vest top from Pennys underneath. If you were going for a brighter look then a lighter colour vest top would work better. You could also wear this top without the belt for a feminine and floaty look, but I prefer to show that I do have a waist by wearing the cincher belt.

The D ring belt is from Pennys.

I got this necklace on a market stall while on holidays in Portugal. I like the pop of lilac next to the brown and mint.

Theses shoes are Michael Kors and you may have seen them in this previous post.

Also worth noting than you could always pop a cardi on for extra warmth, like this one from Pennys.

I am a big fan of how dusky pink looks with brown. That is why I love pairing this brown, animal print, pussy bow blouse with this dusky pink cardigan. The best part is both of these were cheep as chips as they are both from Pennys.

The jeans are from New Look. Nothing new there because if you haven’t noticed, I love New Look’s super skinny jeans. They have the perfect amount of stretch for me and they are great value.

These shoe are Michael Kors and have also been in this post. Don’t worry it was me and not Michael Kors that added the gammy heel cushions; they have a tendancy to slip off my heels, like most courts.

This necklace is Knight & Day from Carraig Donn. It’s a classic in the sense that it’s a single string of pearls, but the charm gives it a modern twist. The best bit is the charm is changeable and you can get those types of charms everywhere now.

The chiffon material of the blouse and soft pink make this a good outfit for spring, however if it is colder or raining I wear it with these boots.

These boots are Marco Tozi, and were a late January sale purchase. The delay in Spring’s arrival has meant that I’ve already gotten loads of wear out of them, although I would have preferred to put them away till next winter.
