minty marni, minty me...

Mint has definitely been a great accent colour for the past few seasons.  Below is one of my favourite combinations of the summer- I always love the cheery colour of the skirt, and the mint tee with bright green necklace just felt simple and stylish.  This look will be a goodbye for now, since I rarely wear this skirt once it gets cold (too many warmer options), but I'm certainly not saying goodbye to the mint!

In fact, another outfit that I thought was surely just for summer now seems like I could easily push it into the wintry months.  After all, silk over cuddly tights is a lovely feeling, and mint has such a rapport with icy things!  This Marni (for H&M) dress has proven to be the any-day uniform I hoped it would be!

From July: 

To September!

And while strolling through the recent image archives, I also came across this unposted and yet much-enjoyed  combination.  I adore a good old polyester print dress.  Yes, I die for the silk dresses, but I cannot express how much everyday fun one can have with a good old vintage tank of a dress- unrippable, unfrayable, and unwrinkleable!  They are easily altered to fit, come in such a range of incredible prints, and still relatively easy to find in thrift stores!
