Encinitas Beach

Ah yes, the beach.

Not Dainty





Silk Maxi Skirt – Mango //  Tank Top – Smart Set  //  Jean Jacket – Old Navy  //  Bag – UO  //  Belt, Ring & Necklace – I forget  //  Sunnies – Lace Affair  //  Shoes – Threadsence

The whole “Mint & Coral” trend has been going on this Spring.  Putting aside that, as you know,  I don’t believe in trends – wear what you like and what works regardless of trend.  I saw all these mint and blush outfits and thought, “I’m never going to wear that!”  And it’s sort of still true.

I saw all these pale mints and pale, pale blushes everywhere.  I knew I would never wear that.  First it was too pale for me and would wash me out.  Second, it was too dainty and feminine for me.  Looks lovely on others, but I like something a little bolder and dramatic.

So I kind of fell into this outfit by accident.  I loved, loved the skirt.  The flow, the movement, how it blew in the wind.  It made me feel like a mystical creature.  And the bright, bold tank was just so stunning and too beautiful to pass up.  Paired together, with a vivid necklace I think this brighter, more dramatic version of “Mint&Blush” works for someone who’s definitely not dainty.
