Outfit Love: Minty &Fresh

Wow! Tuesday, huh? Everyday I'm more amazed at how fast time flies! Here we are, with Autumn literally around the corner when it seems Summer has just arrived. Even though it's still very hot here in our little town, I can see, smell and feel a change in the air. Shadows are becoming longer, the sun is setting earlier… I must say that I am secretly awaiting cooler weather. I have a lot of knitting to learn and will be teaching crochet classes real soon.

Today's outfit, as it turns out, might be one of my favourites! I'm wearing my Happy Monday Makings #10 and I simply love it! It's flowy, light and thought it is boxy it still has a sexy element to it. Now, I have to admit, I'm not so good at sexy. I always feel uncomfortable wearing revealing clothes, but now that I turned 30… I feel the need to dress more like a woman and less like a cutesy girl. So feel free to join me on this journey to find my more grown-up style and please do leave a comment with advice or just to say hi or whatever… ha! I'm rambling! Back to the outfit then.

-As you know, I made the Minty box top. 
-My genuine leather, vintage belt is from a local thrift store.
-The denim pencil skirt is from Mr. Price (long time ago).
-My lovely stiletto's are from Fashion Express

    -I just love how "the tuck" can make such a huge difference to an outfit! Smart-casual, classy yet relaxed… Oh, I forgot to mention, all my accessories are made by me! Yay! Finally a post with all-handmade accessories! Accept for my rings, of course-

Hope you had a lovely Tuesday!



  1. What a great top, you did an amazing job. I'm still scared of sewing stretchy fabric. I've always thought you dress more grown up than me, so you're doing a pretty good job already :)

    1. Thanks Natasha! Your comments are always much appreciated! Stretchy fabric has always been a great fear of mine, I decided to face it this year. It takes some getting used to, getting the right tension on your machine is tricky(for me, that is). Ha! I always thought YOU dressed more grown-up :P

    2. Haha, it just goes to show, it's all in our minds :)
