Bloggers Do It Better » Mint + Coral

Bloggers Do It Better series is hosted by Houston native Kristina. Her site is so addicting and so are her Beauty Haul videos. If you haven’t checked out her blog, stop by and give her a shoutout. This fashion and beauty expert is stylish and smart! (She’s a doctor!)


This challenge is all about the colors Coral and Mint – two of the hottest trends this year. I have been sporting LC Lauren Conrad Pencil jeans in Mint (here and here) and these really comfortable Paige Denim leggings. Coral has been a favorite color of mine for quite a while. If you are a frequent reader of my blog, I love Coral. These wedges have been in almost every blog photo for the past 2 months. I’m also in this Coral Colorblock top in this post here and this Creative Fashion Glee article here.

I have a strong attachment to sequins. I believe sequins just brighten up a dull day and keeps anyone in a fun, lively party mood. I particularly love the sequin skirt overlaid with tulle. Tulle can be seen as promy, and too youthful. However the sequin skirt lining creates a festive and mature look. What I also love is the elasticized waistband! Talk about comfort.

I couldn’t help but do a twirl in the skirt!

Military Sweater & Straight Leg Cargo Pants

Top: Sweater with Shoulder Pads – Zara sz: S
Bottom: Cargo Pants Martin Fit – Banana Republic Factory sz: 6

Shoes: Strappy Heels in Stone – Ann Taylor Loft sz: 7 1/2

I wanted to wear a military styled outfit since there’s a Blogger’s Do It Better Challenge. I realized that I had given many military styled clothing away – either to my mom or donated it. I had a perfectly green military trench and a purple military coat about 1 month ago.

The morning of these pictures, there was quite a breeze around. I dressed warmly in this Zara sweater. The sweater is just the right size for me, not to short or long. It does have a boxy cut. The only complaint I have is the wool – very scratchy. I might have to wear a shirt underneath to help with the roughness. I’ve been having these pants since the summer. I like it very much. I think the straight lines of the pants and the coloring pulls a military vibe. I love the strappy shoes by Loft. It is sexy and comfy. Though after a week of walking in heels, my ankles are starting to scream.

What else should I add to this outfit?
