Minty Fresh Knitwear

Minty blue knitwear with Peter Pan collar

So this is my first post since not winning the Bath in Fashion Blogger Award… Never mind, there’s always next year!

We had an amazing day, the catwalk show was so much fun and it was so lovely meeting all the gorgeous girls. Thank you to EVERYONE that voted for me, I really appreciate your support and lovely, lovely comments and tweets and Facebook messages… you’re all so great. And I’m very proud that I was nominated, seeing as it was the first time I’ve ever entered myself for anything blogger-related.


Mint coloured

Back to blogger reality…! The true fashionista that I am is treating you to a faaaabulous outfit of, er, jeans and sweater today. But it is a pretty sweater – a new purchase from Asos that I saw on someone’s wishlist (give yourself a shout out in the comments if it was you, sorry I forgot which blogger it was!) – and at least it was brightened by my magenta bag.

Mmmmmm, magenta.

Why say purple or pink when you can say magenta – it’s such a great name for a colour I think: Magenta. Sounds so exotic!

Two exciting things to tell you about: I finally have an international giveaway coming up this weekend that I’ve been promising for a while. Think stunning vintage jewellery.  Come back Sunday for that, then on Monday I have a “proper dressed up” outfit that might just be entered for something for which I’ll be needing Facebook votes… I hope I’ll get your support again if it’s not too much trouble…?!

Have a great weekend everyone,

Catherine x

    Lovely Tight jeans ideas. Wearing in summers almost should be simple and short to remain healthier instead of covering in hard dresses. Get more

    Beeoooootiful bag and entire outfit, so sweet. Proof that a great, bright bag will make itself at home where ever it goes!
    Have a groovy week,

    Great detail on that sweater and such a pretty color with your hair.

    Congrats on your IFB mention by the way. I was so happy to see you listed.

    Those jeans fit you to a T! (I almost wrote "genes." I think those are good too!)

    What gorgeous skin you have. Your fashion sense continues to amaze me. Effortless chic. I'm taking notes and learning loads from you. Thank you.

    Love the sweater. And you are so right about magenta!

    You look so lovely here, Catherine! I was rooting for you and thought of you over the weekend. Like you said, there's always next year!

    I'm a tatal sucker for a Peter Pan collar – too cute! Love the jeans and sandals, too – great look!

    Totally agree with Pam, you are a winner in many, many ways. This is 'Mint' to perfection, so lovely on you. I couldn't agree more, why say purple or pink when you can say magenta, its such a beautiful and fun word to say.

  13. 21 April 2013 / 11:34 pm

    You are a winner in so many ways, Catherine! Love this mint green and the way you styled it…just keep doing what you do so well!!

    Love this fresh mint color on you Catherine. Thanks for sharing with Vis Monday! Xoxox

    Oooh, I have a proper dressed up outfit that will be in need of votes too, I wonder if that is going to be the same thing. I love mint, I keep seeing it in shops and want to buy some, but I'm not quite sure what.

  16. 20 April 2013 / 2:07 pm

    You have a great style!

  17. 20 April 2013 / 1:25 pm

    Sorry we didn't get to meet on Thursday but I'm glad you had a great afternoon – here's to next year 😉 x

    You'll never get my vote!! 😛 J/k. You'll always get my vote, even if I have to sneak onto my hubby's FB to give you one since I don't have one myself. 🙂 I love that sweater and the cute Peter Pan collar poking out. Looks so pretty against your red hair. Hope you are having a great weekend! <3

    You look amazing, and that is a great sweater.

  21. 19 April 2013 / 6:41 pm

    I did cast my vote for you. You'll get it next year. I love that sweater. Many thanks to the unknown blogger. I'm going to see if it's still available. have a great weekend.

    Who is that girl Mo?

    Sorry to hear you didn't win. I did vote for you.

    I love the colour mix here.


  24. 19 April 2013 / 3:25 pm

    Sorry to hear you didn't win my dear but i'm sure the experience of it all was just as amazing! I love this new knit of yours, such a gorgeous colour and it's different textures is a nice little twist 🙂

    Take care and enjoy your weekend,

    I love everything about this outfit! It's literally perfect <3

  26. 19 April 2013 / 2:53 pm

    I love that sweater. I'm loving mint right now. I picked up some mint skinnies and a mint blazer the other day. It's such a fresh colour.

  27. 19 April 2013 / 1:57 pm

    Sorry I didn't get a chance to speak to you yesterday, it was all a bit rushed!
    I agree with you about the not winning, the support and just being short-listed at all was exciting enough, the catwalk was great fun, and I've found some new to me blogs to read from it. Winners all round, I think.

    Such a shame you didn't win, keep doing what your doing and you will get there very soon x LOVE your sweater…..gorgeous xx
