New In - Mint Velvet Cream Top

So the blog sale has helped me make hanger space for a couple of investment items for autumn winter and the first one I want to share with you is this cream Mint Velvet Cream top that I fell in love with when I saw it on their website a few weeks ago.

Cream suits me and I love the balloon sleeves - super flattering. I also love how wearable it's going to be for day and night.
Ivory Embroidered Blouse - Mint Velvet
This time round, it was a day occasion. A barbecue for my nephew's birthday and a change of scene for the photos - taken outside my sister in laws house. Even though I know Natalie will be disappointed not to be able to admire my husband's lawn :)
I wore it with my sale bargain Maison Scotch jeans (again!), M&S leopard heels and the neutral bag I picked up from Rosanna at the Style Fair (see this post). Oh and my leopard print specs from Specsavers had a wee outing too. And that's a random hair strand bidding for victory. I don't always have good hair days - here's proof!
and a wee lookey down angle...
LOVE - my only gripe is that it didn't come with a vest already. Luckily I have cream vests in bulk in my wardrobe. I also tried it with a nude vest which shows off the pattern a little better so I'll show that look when I wear it next.

Beware if you're checking out the Mint Velvet website and like me, you're a fan of grey. I've got my eye on THE most amazing grey jacket that I know I'll got tons of wear out of...and their sale stock is fab too...enjoy!

  3. Such a pretty topp! I really like Mint Velvet - they follow the trends but very much in their own way so it's possible to pick up something a little different from the mainstream x

    1. Hi Niki, yes, I love their neutral palate and the fact that they are items you'll keep for years and years. Trying (tho it's hard) to get away from fast fashion this season x

  14. LOVE the cream top - I wish I suited cream! Lately all the nice tops that I've seen involve cream and lace - *sigh! Cream makes me look ill :-( I guess I could maybe add a scarf so I have a different colour close to my face?? Any tips?

    1. So much cream about. I think this top would be too fussy with a scarf. It does come in black too or you could do what I do and slap on the fake tan? I find it makes such a difference when wearing pale colours x
