mint condition

Welcome to Monday – I trust you all had a great weekend? Mine was pretty quiet, but I definitely needed the down-time before embarking on a gruelling 8-day work trip… but then I get a week off to celebrate the big 3-0, so no complaints here!

Today I am bringing you a trend that was all over the S/S11 catwalks and looks just as good on your walls as it does in your wardrobe. Mint green is one of those ultra-feminine colours that has the power to make you look as fresh as a daisy, especially paired with a crisp white. And Dorothy Perkins have combined it with another favourite trend of mine, scalloped edges – Dolly Ps are just knocking it out of the park at the moment! This pastel is perfect for summer, and is one of those hues that really sets off that holiday glow to your skin. Here is some minty inspiration to freshen up the beginning of your week:
