Choco and Mint

I can´t believe how time flies really fast, suddenly we´re in November and almost at the tail end of the year!  I don´t think I´ve accomplished a lot this year. Uh-oh..!

Anyway, my inspiration for this outfit was a mint chocolate bar which I gobbled up for dessert. Yep, I get my outift inspiration sometimes from what I just ate. lol! If chocolate and mint tastes so good, then will pairing these two colors together look good too? See for yourself! BTW, the skirt´s color is really mint green, the camera´s flash just turned in white. My fault for taking this outfit in the late afternoon sun, hahaha!

skirt- Zara, top- boots- local stores
I wanted an all brown monochromatic look accented with the mint green jacquard skirt to lengthen my silhouette and added this pastel colored clutch (which I first used here) fo added color. The gold chain bracelet with light green stones( which you can´t see clearly, hehe) was part of my costume jewelry shopping spree this summer while the amber ring and the torque necklace are old pieces which I love to wear always.

clutch- Blanco, bracelet-H&M
ring- Bijou Brigitte
Wrapping up with an old Sandro coat with epaulets which I didn´t know that I had until I did my autumn closet clean-up. You´ll be seeing more of this coat soon. I test drived this yesterday on a 7ºC weather and it was quite toasty. Nice! :)

coat- Sandro(old)
