Minty Fresh

mint10-1.jpg picture by stylebook18mint9-1.jpg picture by stylebook18mint3-1.jpg picture by stylebook18

My fascination with American Apparel nylon tricot leggings never seems to cease. In fact, I own about eight different pairs, with my newest acquisition being a pair in hot pink (yes I'm having a love affair with anything fluorescent pink and ruffled). They're much better than the regular cotton leggings because they add that "futuristic meets non-practical" kind of vibe which I'm totally digging at the moment. 

My mom is making carne asada right now and I can practically taste it from upstairs so if you'd excuse me, I'm going to go have dinner now.... then drive to the gym and run it off... because I'm a warrior. Amen.

Wearing Dixie ruffled neckline top, vintage teal blazer, black AA nylon leggings, Marni wedges, and Melie Bianco fold-over clutch

i love how your paired up the ruffled neckline top with leggings. very romantic looking, yet hip due to the bright minty green.

corrie said...

You really look impeccable here.

eleni said...

perfection!

Marie-Louise said...

green is the besstt!! love the look!

Oh So Hip It Hurts said...

This is definitely a great outfit, I adore it! I started reading your blog awhile ago and in my oppinion your style seems to have become more and more sophisticated as time goes by. I also like the fact that you wear your outfits just traipsing around in the suburbs. Its excellent!

Well I dont want to sound too full on so lets just say I like your style and I love your blog.

E said...

I love carne asada (seriously, my husband is from New Mexico), so it warms my heart to hear about your mom making it. I feel like it's such a home-y, family thing to have. Yummy.

You're still the blazer queen - you need to change your blog title cuz it's true!

yvonne said...

i love that you've started wearing such bright colors. you look gorgeous, and the angle on the last photo really flatters your bone structure. :)

Just love the frilly sleeves poking out of the blazer. Perfection!

pinkengreen said...

have a look at my latest post, i think what i'm wearing is very similar, same leggings anyway.

miss-goodytwoshoes said...

I really love your style, but i really want to see you a day with something different than a blazer. Everything you wear you finish it with a blazer, lovely don't get me wrong. But it think it will be great if you wear something without a blazer, maybe a great dress or something like that, or a skirt, because you got killer legs!

Nanda Soraya said...

how I love love your outfit ;)

Chloe said...

Ohh Carla I don't know what to say now, I am impressed daily-dress up you got there. And gosh the colour of that blazer, it hurts my eyes, but I really like it :D

I love the green jacket. When I'm searching for something like this (or any other vintage clothing you have) in a vintage store, I just can't find it. Maybe the Dutch vintage stores are just very different than the stores you have there. I don't know.. hihi

I really love this outfit, is there anything that doesn't fit on you?
