Smitten with Mint

Wednesday, 11 July 2012


Ever had one of those new purchases that you can't wait to wear, so you just make use of the next available opportunity to? Even if it's just for lunch and a mooch around in the city? Yes. This mint number is my new buy from Zara. I tell you, Zara have my heart at the moment and I can't be held responsible for the damage it does to my pocket when I go in! 

For the styling, I took inspiration from my lovely friend Charlotte who has the same dress and accessorised it with a pair of snakeskin heels, and went along with this theme with the bag I chose.

It's been a while since I've had my hair up like this, and if you'd like a tutorial, just let me know! Also, I've filmed a Makeup tutorial for this look! Click Here to watch it! :)

Dress & Belt : Zara
Shoes : Primark
Bag : Charity Shop
Necklace : H&M
Watch : Aldo

Lauren said...

Very pretty indeed. I'm completely mad for mint too- I'm so looking forward to not being pregnant so I can justify buying a cute piece myself!

Have a lovely day. Good luck with the sales!

P.S. Your hair does make one with short hair more than slightly jealous.

I absolutely love your blog and Youtube channel. I've been a huge fan for a while now and I want to congratulate you on all the success you've found through blogging. I'm a newer blogger (even though I've had my hefty share of blogs) and want to be in a place that you are in the near future. xo

PS. Could you do a photography tutorial of some sorts? I have a DSLR and I have no idea how to take gorgeous photos! It's so confusing. Thanks, again!
