Chevron + Mint

Every once in a while the wind can actually make my photos better. I think the key is having my hair pulled back. Real wind never makes my hair look good. I'm assuming a wind machine would be a different story; I'll let you know, if I ever find out.

Looking forward to going out with Amber and Meg this weekend! (Lets hope it doesn't rain for the sake of my rooftop cocktail dreams.)

I love that mint shirt so much. I'm excited because I'm also wearing rhinestone bangles today. Alas, there is no breeze in the office, and someone turned off the a/c last night :(

This mint top is so pretty and soft. Love it with the black and white chevron. Have fun and hopefully you don't get rain :)

The wind also makes your twirly skirt look awesome! Wind never cooperates for me either--my hair ends up looking like I stuck my finger in a light socket. Happy weekend, enjoy those rooftop cocktails!

I like how the mint unexpectedly works with the stripe skirt! The earrings tie it all together!

Love the look, & the scenery!

Woohoo! I love wind, ha ha, it makes everything better (unless it's hurricane strength winds...)

I still have no idea what I'm wearing tomorrow except for my shoes XD

Ooh, look at you being all glamourous in the wind~ like a fierce model, you are. Tyra would be proud. And hey, for the days when it's not windy and you want to wear your hair up, you could always invest in a wind machine. ;) They're only like a bajillion dollars, I'm sure.

I think mint is one of my favorite colors on you. And they match those earrings just perfectly!

I have my fingers crossed that it doesnt rain! That would blow chunks.

kenda said...

these are some great photos. this mix of colors plus the windswept look gives your post an effortless feel.

windy pics never turns out quite so well for me. the wind usually just blows up my skirt. good thing i take my pics in my backyard. otherwise i'd be flashing everyone.

Diane said...

i love mint! i still don't have this color in my wardrobe. gotta get it asap!!! i really love your shoes! so fabulous!

Juneli said...

I'm crazy in love with that chevron skirt of yours! I think I've seen something similar in a store, but some how I was in a hurry and couldn't grab it- now I'll have to wreck my brains and think where it was! Not H&M though as we do not have one here in Iowa!
Love your bracelet too!
Love

You're right that the wind does wonderful things for the skirt...and now I'm wondering if any bloggers actually do invest in a wind machine!

I've spent many a frustrating evening taking outfit photos in the wind, only to discover that I look absolutely ridiculous in all the pictures. You're right - having my hair pulled back is the only way the wind works in my favor in photos. (Well, and not wearing a dress that is going to fly up in my face and cause a Marilyn moment in all the pics!)

Shabby, Chic, & Cheap said...

It's always awesome when the blog Gods smile down on us and photos go the way we want them too!

Love the color and print combo!

Mimi said...
