Bloggers Do It Better: Mint + Coral


{ Blazer: Zara // Romper: Urban Outfitters (old, similar) // Shoes: BCBGirls (worn here, here and here) // Bag: Louis Vuitton // Sunglasses: H&M // Watch: ToyWatch // Jewelry: MONIKALOVE bracelet by bfrend; random ring; DIY necklace }

When I saw that Pretty Shiny Sparkly's Bloggers Do It Better Challenge was mint and coral, I jumped at the opportunity to style an outfit with these two colours. I already have quite a few coral and mint items in my closet so it was just a matter of deciding what to pair with what. I ended up reaching for my favourite coral romper that I purchased last Spring and a pale sea green blazer. My nails were polished with a touch of mint and coral to play up the colour scheme a little more, and the result is a bright and cheerful outfit that reminds me of macarons (yum!).

    1. Thanks hon! I honestly don't think I would've paired mint and coral together if it wasn't for BDIB, so I'm grateful there are challenges like this that make me rethink how I would style clothes!

  20. I'm in love with mint and coral right now! Such a pretty romper. Do you find it completely annoying to go to the washroom in though?? Every time I wear one, I try to minimize my visits as best as I can!
