Mint Cardi + Poppy Dress

Every so often, when an idea for an outfit pops into my head, I type it into my iPhone's notepad app, and then promptly forget about it.

"Mint cardi + Poppy dress" was thought of months ago, and it wasn't until I had to note another outfit idea recently that I saw it and actually decided to put it together.
I'm glad I did, I love how these two colors play off one another.

Ooh! I really like this look. Very nice.

When an outfit idea pops up in my head at work, I put it on a post it note. I found about 10 post it notes in my lunchbox the other day with outfit ideas, ha ha! Maybe I should put it in my phone like you do. Heather

Oh my gosh, I'm glad I'm not the only one who scribbles down outfit ideas in their iPhone notes!! haha. <3

But oh, gosh, how this outfit pops so nicely! I saw it on my dashboard and it even looked amazing shrunk down. I love how those earrings match just perfectly, too.

I love how the colors go well together. I wouldn't have thought of that at all! Outfit ideas don't come up in my head that easy unfortunately...thank goodness for Pinterest!

They really do look quite fetching together - the whole outfit has a nice spring time feel to it.

I thought i was the only one who wrote down ideas for outfits and then totally forgot about them. I have a box at home with magazine cut outs, a folder in my computer and a board on pinterest.... i take forever to execute mine.
I like how this turned out :)

I love the print on your dress and these colors do go so well together. What a lovely outfit Lydia! :)

Frannie Pantz said...

Um. I totally do this too (on my Blackberry because I haven't upgraded from 2009). I am glad that you noted this outfit because as you say, the colors play really well together! I love the bare legs! We gotta sport 'em while we can!

Joanne said...

I am so dumb, I haven't thought of doing this on my iphone! That is such a great idea! Sometimes I write down a sketch (I can't draw but it's enough for me to know when I look later) but then I loose that book!

ohh you look like a complete garden! I love everything about it- the bright colours, the golden sunlight and your metallic nails! x misstea & co.

Alex Elizabeth said...

One again convincing me that red is definitely the right color to wear with mint. I'm sad sandal wearing days will be over very soon. I think yesterday might actually have been the last one for New York.

Cindi said...

Your love for colours continue to inspire me, thanks a lot. Looking at an outfit like this one makes me long for summer again already :)
