Welcome again to the sheer loveliness that is Wednesday - and no sarcasm necessary, because I actually love Wednesdays. I only have two lessons in college, which leaves me plenty of time in the afternoon/evening to do work, relax and just laze around my house in general. It's probably the most stress-free weekday, especially since I can take time writing posts - instead of frantically bashing something out around 9.30pm, I am actually writing around 4.30pm & doing it very leisurely.
As far as today's outfit goes, I would hardly say I am pushing the boat out, but I think that the colours employed keep it on the stylish side..
Cardigan - Dorothy Perkins; Top, Necklace & Ring - Topshop; Jeans - H&M; Shoes - New Look; Bracelet - Temporary Secretary.
You can now see why this post is called minted, right? I thought the best way to rev up a jeans-and-vest-top look was to go for more statement hues, and as well as being different I have played to the SS'12 colour palette. I absolutely adore this mint vest top, it is probably the simplest top I consent to wear, yet it still looks cute thanks to the scalloped edges & gorgeous colour - Topshop, you are genius. My gold jeans have been a wardrobe favourite since I bought them a few months ago (you must be sick of seeing them!), and since metallics are still hot property this season they will remain as such. I just love the colours of this outfit, and the way it is framed by my chic Chanel-esque monochrome cardigan, then topped off with a gold statement necklace and more gold jewellery. This is simple, yet chic, perfect for my minimal-effort Wednesdays.
