Macaroons & Mint - 6.4.12

 Hey! Today my mum and I took a spontaneous trip to the Lovely Patisserie Madeleine in Stockbridge (I actually mentioned it here before nearly a year ago in my first blog post) which, as always, was amazing. The macaroons are to die for and the colours are all just so appealing. I had a pistachio, a strawberry and a passion fruit one - yum!
The whole ambiance of the cafe is just so French, even the music that they play. If you know me, you will know that I have a bit of an obsession with Paris so it suits me perfectly, it's like my own mini Paris in Edinburgh!
The macaroons kind of match my blouse, haha!
Sooo just like in my last outfit post, I am wearing my mint blouse again. I just cannot stop wearing it- although today I buttoned it right up to the top and rolled the sleeves down to make it a wee bit different.I wore it with my trusty Topshop jeans that I have had for about two years, I still never get bored of them though! Here are some of the pictures I took when I got home:

My feet look so long, haha!

...I hope everyone is having a wonderful week xo

Mint, Beige & a hint of Sunshine

Heyyy!  I am so glad that it is finally the Easter holidays, although I really should be spending most of it revising. Knowing me, I'm sure that I'll find plenty of pointless things to do instead though!  I went shopping on Friday for some essentials, and ended up buying myself a new pair of wedges. Oops. 
My reasoning was that I only own black wedges, so it was time for a new colour, hehe. 

Here's the outfit I put together when I got home:

I also bought this blouse which I am sort of in love with ....I just cannot get enough of mint at the moment.
Usually my outfits are pretty monochromatic, but since the pastel trend has begun cropping up everywhere my colour palette has been transformed!
All of the lovely pastel colored items at the moment – particularly mint ones – just make everything seem that little bit brighter and happier, even when you’re having a bad day. To me, they radiate that free and careless Spring attitude that I think everybody longs for, as well as generally being irresistibly pretty!

Sorry about my mint rant....anyway on that note, I hope everybody is enjoying the sun (if it's out where you are), bye! xo
