OOTD | Mint Primark Dress

Mint green has been a colour that's made itself known in my wardrobe over the past couple of weeks. I think the shade suits my skin tone well and even makes me look a little more tan, bonus! I wore this to work at Pretty Twisted earlier in the week and as the sun was shining, I needed to wear something to keep me cool but I totally wanted to blend in with the pastel theme of the shop.

This dress from Primark (similar here) is an amazing piece and at £13, a definite bargain. It doesn't cling or restrict your movement but it gives some shape and thankfully flatters my figure. The waffle-esque material is light enough to be breezy in the warm weather but thick enough to not look cheap. I paired it with my insanely cute new JuJu Jelliesa simple white chain and finished the look with the bold and beautiful Impassioned. (review here).

I've completely fallen in love with my jelly shoes. They remind me of a holiday to Gran Canaria in '97 where I wore nothing but jelly shoes and danced around playing pokemon on my gameboy. Ahh sweet nostalgia... I really hope you liked this outfit - I'm away Mon-Fri next week, but fear not I have some guest posts ready to roll for you!

  3. Gorgeous dress, it really enhances your tan. I remember the jelly shoes well, crazy enough I wore them in the late ninety's and also was obsessed with Pokemon, It's making me very nostalgic :-)

    Primark always amazes me. They really do have some lovely pieces.
    As for the jellies.. Oh the memories! I'd love to own a pair, but I just don't think I pull them off in my 'old age' now. haha
