Feeling Minty!

I seem to have fallen head over heels with mint recently, I can't get enough of it!  Actually I guess you could say the same for most pastel colours which is definitely something I never thought I would say.  They just seem so much more wearable this year round.  And rocking them with black tights helps I guess.  I fell in love with this Topshop beauty as soon as I spotted it, a few clicks later and it was on it's way to me.  It's currently sold out online but I am sure you'd be able to find it in store still.  It's got a pretty silver flex running through it which really enhances the dress.  My only negative is that whilst the skirt and the front are lined the back isn't, I have put a crop top on underneath as I think that looks better than seeing all bra straps.  Still love the scoop back detail though.




Dress: Topshop
Jacket: New Look
Converse: Office

The jacket is from New Look (there are matching shorts for those with better legs than me) and whilst I love the flecks of pastels running through it I didn't really like the round neck.  A few stitches later and I had created lapels, much better I am sure you will agree.

I now have two pairs of Converse dance lace shoes, they are set to be the shoes of my summer again this year.  I cannot praise them enough - they are so comfy but more feminine than standard Converse so work well with dresses.  There are a few more colour choices this year so the hardest bit is choosing which colour to buy.  I would love a pink pair though please Converse.  Oh and a minty pair whilst you're at it ;)

  2. Sarah, oh my lordy lord, the first thing I noticed is how amazing your shape looks! You've ALWAYS looked gorgeous, but compare this to this!! http://amilliondresses.blogspot.co.uk/2010/12/hello.html You are seriously an inspiration - I've been doing awful recently and after the 'time of the month' binge and exam stress, I weigh more than when I started, only 1lb but STILL!

    This dress is equally gorgeous!
