A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist

Orange, Mint and Lilac

Hello, welcome and thanks for visiting.  This outfit, believe it or not was put together by my husband.  Well, sort of.  I was going to wear the dress with violet jeans and shoes when he said, "it will look nice with the mint shoe and belt and lighter colored jeans".  So I thought, keep the photographer happy and you'll get good photos.  I must say I am quite happy with the blend though.  Thanks Dada.  This week I am linking up to Visible Monday, Trend Spin Linkup and Fashion Informant Link Up, so pop over for a visit and be inspired.

Outfit Details:

Dress: Piper (from Myer)
Belt: Portmans
Jeans: Levis
Shoes: Airflex
Earrings: Diva
Watch: Goldmark
Sunnies: Annette
Nail Polish: Sally Hansen - Commander in Chic and Glitz Gal

  4. I admire how you boldly wear color. This is something that I'm working on trying to incorporate into my wardrobe. The orange is great with your complexion.

  5. Your husband got it right! (I can't imagine my husband even using the word mint to describe a color!)

    I like the soft strength of the green with that bold orange dress, and the shoes have such a lovely shape.
