A while ago, I wrote a couple of posts about sewing my first skirt, a mint-skirt to be more exact. Turns out, those posts I wrote about it are some of the most popular posts around here. So I decided to revisit the theme, because I also sewed myself some nifty mint pants! And I’d like to share with you how I’ve been wearing them (don’t mind me, I have the exact same pose in almost every picture!):
The first look is my favorite! I posted it to Occupy the Wardorbe back in May. In this look, I’m rocking my mint skirt with in a colorful way: Chambray shirt from Ralph Lauren Outlet, bow-tie from Ben Sherman (borrowed from the boyfriend), skinny belt from Forever 21, and my favorite purple heels from Guess.
The second look was also for Occupy! The occasion: one of our co-authors birthday with an Audrey Hepburn theme! I stretched the theme a little inspired by the Breakfast at Tiffany’s movie, and wore my mint skirt with a loose gray sweater from Forever 21, my fabulous spiked heels from GoJane, and a turquoise necklace I got off Ebay. That
The third look is how I wore the skirt as soon as it was done! I finished the last bit of sewing, put it on, styled it a bit and ran downstairs to show it off to my boyfriend! Back then it was still winter and cold, so I wore the skirt with solid black tights, heels from Nine West, tank top and shirt from Forever 21. You can see by the smile on my face how much I love that skirt.
I guess I need either to photograph myself more often when I wear those pants (because I do wear them fairly often) or I need to get creative on ways to style it. First look was also for Occupy, for our vintage week. I’m wearing my pants with a Forever 21 polka dot top, my grandma’s pearls, and Melissa flats (my favorite and most comfortable flats ever).
The second look is from the day I finish the pants! I paired it with a simple black tank top and black pointy heels. I wanted all the focus to be on the pants.
How do you wear your mint-colored clothes?
