One of my favourite colours is mint (oh hi mint blog theme) and towards the end of last year, I found myself browsing The Outnet (never a good idea!) and came across this jumper in the sale. After much deliberation I succumbed to the minty goodness and purchased the jumper. As with most of my jumpers, I like to layer them over dresses or a contrasting blouse and on this occasion I wore it over my trusty Mink Pink dress. The one is a pretty heavy knit as it is a cotton/linen mix which I find kind of travels south as the day goes on. I swear the sleeves are longer now than when I first tried it on but it's not really a big deal. So while I might have to roll the sleeves up a little these days, I absolutely adore this fresh minty green coloured jumper. I have to admit that I'm still on a bit of a mint phase and despite owning a variations of goodies from mint converse to a desk lamp, I have my eye on this jumper and this coat...oh dear!

  8. A sleeve roll works good though right? I like mint as a theme colour.

  17. Aww thank you Stephanie! It is SO dreary at the moment isn't it? I can't wait for the Spring/Summer already...

  18. Thanks! My nail polish is from Illamasqua - their polish is a tad on the expensive side but I feel it holds up quite well chip wise!

  19. Yeah definitely - oh yes you have elements of minty blue in your blog too!

  20. Thanks Ceri! I'm glad you like the colours together. I really didn't want to thrown on a black jacket over the mint sweater so the pink was a pretty fun option :)

  21. Teehee thanks! I actually find the pink coat a little hard to pair up with clothes because it's so bright so I am pretty pleased it looked alright with the jumper :)

  22. Thanks lovely! There are so many shades of mint though, perhaps you've not come across the right shade yet. Thanks for your lovely comment x

  26. Can definitely identify with this - I love mint and this jumper looks so cosy and you look lovely in it! I keep wearing my favourite jumper at the moment with the cold snap we've had and my sleeves seem to get longer each day so I feel you on that too! Love the way you've layered this all and your hat is so cute, I love that colour at the moment. - Tasha

  30. Thanks so much Valerie! I love how the outfit came together in the end. I only realised after I shot this that mint and pink are such complimenting colours :)

  31. Thanks Madison! Oh it's so cold this week, I'm definitely layering up and trying to stay cosy as much as possible. Currently with a cup of hot tea to hand! :)

    Love the jumper on you. The colour really is perfect! I do find it so annoying though when knits stretch out over time. Although, sleeves are always too short on my monkey arms so I suppose it would be good in that sense! Maybe this jumper would be long enough for my arms!

  33. I know what you mean Jen, when I first realised it was stretching I was a bit annoyed since Elizabeth & James isn't the cheapest but I've actually grown to love it luckily! Ha I totally have the opposite problem - I've grown up having to roll all my sleeves/jeans/trousers up, I'm so freaking short! x

  34. This reminds me I need mint in my closet! Layering it over the polka dot dress makes for such a cute contrast :)
