Mint Punch


Mint & burgundy & faux fur make for an interesting mix. This is what I wore on my extremely casual day off yesterday. I didn't intend for a 'look of the day' shoot to ensue, but I thought I'd show you these anyhow. I was in the exact mood for mint & somehow this is the outfit that grew out of that. The burgundy cropped sweater is my go-to item for a lazy day, or one spent studying in a cozy spot. The faux fur was a definite necessity as it was, grudgingly, freezing outside. I've got a million & one summer outfits planned already... now if only the weather would cooperate! 

Outfits aside, life has been more than a little crazy lately. Big changes are in the air, some of which I'll share with you very soon. I've been asked if they're 'good' changes. The ever-positive side of me likes to think that all changes are good ones, no matter type of situation they arise from. As a result though, I'm a little behind on responding to comments & keeping up with the numerous blogs I follow. Hopefully you'll all bear with me, because your support & feedback is what keeps this blog going & me smiling! 





I was wearing:
Mint shorts - American Apparel (here)
Faux Fur vest - Zara
Burgundy cropped sweater - Urban Outfitters
Lace bodysuit - American Apparel (here)
Black Paloma Wedges - Dolce Vita
Bracelets - H&M/The Black Market, Halifax

  20. first of all I want to start by saying Elle Fanning was beautiful and uh-mazing in Super Eight! She's heading up to her sisters level of fame very quickly.

    second of all the maroon skirt. It's actually a work skirt from American Apparel. We have the double layer chiffon and the single layer. I was wearing the the double layer but I've been eyeing a single-layer to put myself in the summer, more freedom mood. The single layer is REALLY see through but depending on what colour one gets, it's adorable!

    much love,
    abigail <3
