This summer, a dear friend of mine is getting married and she has wished for us bridesmaids to be dressed in pastel colors, every girl in a different shade, from rose to lavender, from light blue to soft yellow. My assigned hue is mint green and so I have been looking for the perfect gown. I came across those two beautiful dresses that might look pretty much the same but if you check their price tag, you might be extremely surprised…

My Look: Beautiful Chicago

Chicago Marni

I started my crazy road trip through the US in the city in which I had lived for 2 years: Beautiful CHICAGO. It always feels so great to be back, seeing your friends, wallowing in memories and going to your favourite restaurants (Gibsons, Le Colonial, NoMI at the Park Hyatt and RL Restaurant at the gigantic Ralph Lauren store). The weather was amazing and I enjoyed going for a stroll through downtown.

My look: Mint green collarless jacket (50% off on sale), floral printed dress (50% off on sale), both by Marnileather and chain bracelet, “Lucky Clover” earrings and necklace, mint green ballet flatssky-blue Marcie hobo bag, all by Chloé and glitter sunglasses by Miu Miu.

S/S 2011: Hyper Colour Mint Green

Mint green is a pale pastel tint of spring green. It is a blossoming shade full of energy and one of the It-colours for S/S 2011.

Worn tone on tone, it makes you shine full of radiance and completely refreshing, like one of those first days in spring. Alexander Wang is among the forerunners of this trend.

Below you can find a perfect mint green outfit ready to order:

Gentlemen, you are in this as well. Mint green is a must for you this summer!
