Mixing mint with grey + black

One quick note that the poll is still open to vote for your favorite outfit of mine from October!

My husband, Sam, sometimes likes to be involved with my daily outfit choices. He has NEVER wanted to actually choose an outfit for me — too much pressure, he says — but he quite likes it when I give him a range of options to choose from.

Like today, I knew I wanted to pair a t-shirt with my black pencil skirt. I presented Sam with three options (my bow blouse, my purple P&P tee, or my glasses-print tee), and he immediately chose my glasses-print tee. I then asked him what color skinny belt to choose (pink, mint, or grey), and he chose the mint option.

The end result, all put together:

And YES, another outfit with these awesome grey booties. Obviously I’m IN LOVE. I knew I wanted to try them out with my light grey tights for a different kind of look. The end result is a little edgy — at least, edgy for me. I also piled on silver bracelets, including the “Librarian” bangle that my mother-in-law gifted me for my birthday.

The pic below is an outtake of when I adjusted my bracelets for the closeup, seen above. I smiled at how artistically splayed my fingers looked in the outtake. 😉

The backdrop is an interesting wall along a nearby neighborhood side street. I love the round shapes and concrete textures, so I thought it would make for a neutral yet also eye-catching backdrop for photos. The grey tones of the logs also tie in with my grey tights and ankle boots! 🙂

      I loved the eyeglass print so much that I bought it in a large, which was the only size left. So it’s a little roomier than other tees in my closet, but I actually quite like that. And I like the contrast between the flowy tee and the body-conscious pencil skirt. Sam was also so proud of the pop of color from the belt! My choice probably would have been the grey, to tie in more with the boots, but I’m glad Sam’s choice pushed me out of my comfort zone. 🙂
