Mint Denim

I FOUND THEM!!! So excited enough writing and reading, here are the pictures...


It took me a while to find these mint jeans and I had lots of help - thanks Ana, Rosie, Didi and Suzana - for all your suggestions. Ended up finding these at Sherway Gardens, I just couldn't venture out of my comfort zone.

The outfit was actually inspired by Didi, she was wearing mint and lace so I copied her. I hope you approve.

For all my ladies who are saying they can't do this trend, if you enjoy it, go up a size or even two in the pastels. They are not forgiving but once you get the right size they do look amazing. These jeans are a mid-rise with four way stretch, the mid-rise was key for me. Plus for all my tall girls the inseam is 35 inches! I can wear them as pants not capris!


Gold is the way to go with this soft palate, its warm against the ivory lace and mint denim.


I take most of the pictures on my driveway with my son helping me, us women are great at multi-tasking.





These shoes are as old as dirt (sorry Jane) and I love wearing them. With the pastel trend I love nude shoes, black I find too harsh. Pastel shoes would be fun and just kick it up a notch.



If anyone has any questions or post suggestions please feel free to comment here or get in touch with me on Facebook. For the reader who asked about other working girl outfits I will post more over the coming weeks. "Ask and you shall receive"

Thanks for all the kind words about my blog, especially Scott and Sanka!
