Minty

includeds gifted items

Found this forgotten part of a shopping centre walking through it the other day. I love the 80’s tiling, it’s a huge contrast to the rest of the centre. It’s been through a lot of modernisation, but this is the best part. The perfect place to showcase this mint pussy blouse I bought from a vintage store in Florence. The blouse is actually from Elena Miro, a plus size brand but whatever you know. Is a 16 is now plus size, cool?

I am so drawn to mint at the moment, often picking up knits and T’s in minty tones and shades whenever out shopping. But they were never right. I love the styling of this blouse though. The ruffled sleeves, long bow ties. Style bows undone for a more relaxed less office look. Less taking notes, more getting drinks. Tucked in to develop the style into frayed jeans. Also highlighting the ties and their length. The jacket was a gift from LOTD.com over a year ago ( new guidelines, how am I doing?) But have no obligation to post anything about it anymore apart from that it’s a sick jacket that I love. And buckle slippers from a vintage store in Florence.

Two full days in Florence consisted of ice cream, pizza, vintage shopping and laughing. The purpose of the trip was to spend a day at Pitti Filati, a yarn/knitting trade show. Getting to experience what it’s like to be a buyer and be surrounded by industry.

Hello again my old friend ( the Duomo) I can to Florence for the day years ago with my parents and it was a magical experience to marvel at the detail of this building. Its dome can be seen just by the hotel we stayed in this time. The beautiful pink and green pattern is next level inspiration to colour clash in my styling.

One look that I loved wearing was this checked look. Coordination is so much more fun thenĀ I thought it could ever be. The different brown checks compliment each other match into that this amazing creamy knitted jumper. Effortless matching and muted tones. Yes completely contrasted with these new checked Vans from the Schuh sale. I’ve lusted after a pair of checked Vans for what feels like a millennium. To finally have a pair is so pleasingĀ I cannot tell you. Styling wise, it’s not the best, a cream shoe or brown would have looked chicer. But I only bought with me these Vans and a pair of heels.
