This outfit is again absolute eye candy for me! The light mint and white colours are just divine, simply divine! I love the look of lace and pastels mixed, and have therefore done that for this outfit. The lovely ruffled top, shell necklace and beaded bracelets are all that lovely mint colour. The lace scarf, knitted cardigan (which also have shell buttons by the by) and the skirt are all white. I love the look of ivory and cream with vintage colours as you well know, however due to my skin tone and eye and hair colour, I look far better in clear colours such as white, or even mint. I do try to make other colours work, but mostly I have to face the brutal truth. 😉 Warm colours do not altogether suit me.
I absolutely love the look of these periwinkle flowers with the outfit. In fact, wearing that colour with mint would look lovely too! You can’t really see the shoes that I’m wearing, but they are the same as in the last post – silver sandals.
Yellow would also look lovely with these colours, makes me think of the sky – yellow sun, blue sky, white clouds! Aaah, bring on the summer!
Rhesa had a brilliant idea in regards to a photo setting. The two photos of me sitting and lying in the buttercup filled strip of foliage reminded both of us of the cover of a fashion mag. 😉 The lighting was perfect. Anyway, take a look and see what you think 🙂 If you have any questions about colouring or dressing, comment and I’ll reply (after talking to my fashion pro sis of mine of course).
I wore a simpler version of this outfit a couple of years ago actually – minus the scarf and bracelets. Lydia helped me style that one long ago…
Bless you all today and over this next week!
The next outfit will be coming soon… if you have any requests in regards to some posts, I’d be happy to seriously consider some ideas. We’ll have an accessory post coming up soon. We finally took some photos of our shoes and scarves which I’m sure that you’ll love looking at soon! Another idea, having a remix post. I’ve seen quite a few bloggers do this. You dig up a few past photos that have been on the blog of you wearing the same item of clothing. Also a bits and pieces post could be fun. Rather like instagram. I rather enjoy photography also, so you might see a bit of it up here. Could be interesting 🙂
Let me know what you think!
