Minty Fresh

Take a look and like my look on Primania!

No colour says Spring like green does it? Well into the season of regrowth and new beginnings, it seems the only shade of green anyone is wearing right now is mint. Its fresh, it's impactful, it's season suiting and best of all, it looks great.  All over. On anything. Hence the styling of my most recent look.Head to toe in mint might sound like overkill, but in reality, it couldn't look better. We're all still on the co-ord, matchy-matchy train and blocking all over colour fits in with that trend perfectly. It's been the new way to easily style a look top to toe without resorting to a dress; I feel this is a much more effective way to style colour anyway.  Slight shade differences help to break the outfit up and a bit of red lippy (see last post) is a perfect contrast.

The skirt is the sought after perfect PU beauties that Primark released early last month and this colour was my favourite of the two. The skirt fits perfectly and the soft faux leather fabric is really nice and feels much more expensive than the £10 price tag; It's a steal, perfect for spring style.

The coat is another popular piece; a textured mint coat. I've seen a few high street brands sell this type of coat, all of a similar 'boyfriend' cut style. This boxy, blazer silhouette is suiting to most shapes and I can see why it would make for a popular cut. My coat is from SheInside; like a lot of international brand's, overseas shipping can take a little while but the products are always well worth the wait. Get yours here.

The rest of the outfit comes courtesy of supermarkets Tesco and Asda. Supermarket shopping is never off the cards for me, I don't think less of buying from a supermarket because its where I would also pick up groceries. The supermarkets are more on point than ever in recent years and trends that you would find on the high street are just as prevalent in these stores and are executed just as well. I always end up sticking my head into the clothes section whilst I'm picking up a few things. Recently more often than not, something finds its way into my basket. 
First of all I spotted this gorgeous fluffy 'popcorn' knit jumper, that caught my eye on a quick dash to Asda. George have a great summer collection out now but this was in the winter sale for just £9. I couldn't resist. Its so easy to throw on with any outfit and the colour is perfect; a great transitional piece to stay warm whilst looking forward to spring. 

Next was my bargain from Tesco.  Here I picked up these amazing limited edition nude studded stiletto heels for just £7 in the sale in Tesco and its safe to say that they were well worth it. They look so much more expensive, no one would know that I picked them up along side my Rolo yogurts!
