Blushed Neutral with a Hint of Mint…

So it’s not Friday yet?? Oh ok…lol! Hi loves! I hope you’ve had a great week so far! This outfit is actually from Sunday, I wore this to church and after with my boyfriend to go have dinner with his family. The vest was a last minute addition on the way to church and I felt it would really add some interest to the overall look. I was going to wear a scarf, until I saw that it was going to be a sweltering day and decided to go with my mint green statement necklace instead. I really liked the way the neutral army vest complemented and added some edge to my blush pink maxi. You’ve seen this skirt before in this post and it’s easily become one of my faves! Enjoy the pics…
ps. I’m pretty sure all my makeup melted off my face from the intense heat :/ yuck lol
Vintage leather and Paisely…i die for this bag! πŸ™‚

What I Wore: | Vest: Old Navy | Top: Banana Republic | Maxi: Forever21 | Leopard Flats: Target | Purse: recent vintage purchase found by my babe πŸ™‚ | Manicure: Essie- Tart Deco | 
2 things I’m so thankful for:
  • For God’s favor, because my AC in my car has been broken for almost a month and my boyfriend’s uncle took it and got it fixed for me and it ended up not being the compressor or anything serious, but just needed flushing (whatever that means lol) 
  • For my boyfriend’s patience, because he agreed to pull over and take these pics for me on the way to his family’s house because I “thought the rocks on the hill would make a cool background” (thanks Boop <3!) …#bloggerproblems
Have a great day loves!! Thanks for stopping by my blog to read my posts, commenting, and following! You make my day brighter πŸ™‚

    I think this maxi is amazing, and I love your hair. It's so great when your significant other helps with taking your many outfit photos for your blog. I love that my hubby takes my photos too. πŸ™‚

    Lovely, Chioma! As soon as I saw the words "hint of mint" in your title, I knew I'd love the outfit! You're right about the vest adding something special … I really like how the mustard color of the vest and your necklace play off one another. And it sounds like your guy is a keeper. πŸ™‚
