A tropical print and the Mint Chinos Debacle
I'm afraid I almost totally stole this outfit from one I pinned here... I needed inspiration last weekend and had a quick peek at my Pinterest Spring Summer board the night before, so I can't take much credit for this! But I did add a pop of red with my plastic Melissa bow wedges and red belt, plus the outfit needed a hat. Rather, my bad hair day needed a hat ;)
This is the second pair of trousers I've bought since the Mint Chinos Debacle (or at least that's what I've called it). Long story short: first wear of perfect fit mint chinos; house exited with bottle of orange nail polish in hand; keys, bag and nail polish juggled whilst locking front door; nail polish dropped onto concrete doorstep; perfect mint chinos splattered with full contents of nail polish bottle; tears over death of perfect mint chinos; perfect mint chinos totally sold out online and in all stores; online trouser shopping frenzy to help me get over death of perfect mint chinos.
The first pair (not chinos) I purchased in this two month frenzy have been worn here and here, and now the tropical print chinos also have helped to fill the little hole in my heart. Now, I must go - the peach floral version has just come back into stock: only one in my size, Add to Basket!!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
