Baby Blue, Mint and Teal Combination With Tan Boots

Baby blue, mint, teal and tan
What started as a very simple outfit last weekend - jeans and my mint biker jacket - soon became a riot of all shades of blue. Baby blue, mint and teal all happily combined with tan (both my boots and my hair) to create another 'anti-autumnal colours' outfit. (I did yellow and grey the other week.)

I hadn't actually worn the mint jacket since the spring (see here), and I thought the blue scarf from Asos would jar a little but I'm happy to say it didn't. I think shades of blue with mint can be tricky to get right, but these were all greeny-blues: anything on the side of cobalt or purply-blue definitely wouldn't have worked with the mint... believe me I've tried them all!

The tan boots have been brought out yet again for the fifth or sixth winter in a row and gave a nice warm contrast to all the cool colours I had on. I'm not giving up on these boots any time soon so I'm afraid you'll have to put up with them for yet another season...!

Do you have an old faithful pair of boots that you'd had for years that you're determined to keep wearing till they fall apart (like me)?

  1. Love the jacket and you really do color blend well. Those boots rock. I would keep them, resole them and just know they are mine until they fall apart.

  4. Love all the shades of blues together. These boots are great and they look brand new can't believe you've and it for several seasons. I tend to spend more money on boots and buy quality so that they will last for several seasons.

    1. I was definitely drawn to the jacket because of the colour, Lorna - I got in the spring but it seemed silly not to wear it just because mint is regarded as a spring colour. And thank you so much for your lovely comments x

  8. Well done. All those blues and mints. And yes I have faithful boots as well. I keep throwing them out and ... back in the closet at the last moment. Black riding boots.
