metallic paws: lavender mint

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

lavender mint

Doesn't lavender mint sound like a perfect blend of two exquisite scents? In my opinion the two colours combined together also reflect the freshness and uniqueness of this heavenly and invigorating aroma.

I'm yet to be swayed by the idea that pastels can only be done during summer/spring, accompanied by bare skin and loose flowy materials. It was still under 20 degrees when I did this photoshoot, but I kept myself warm with a long-sleeved blazer, pants, and a bias towards standing in the sun and soaking up the warm rays to take photos. As for the association of pastels with candy colours and babyishness- a structured blazer with a chiffon shirt tucked inside will eradicate all sense of childishness and unprofessionalism.

I'm using this rare opportunity of realising I've allocated a few too many hours to a particular subject to study for, by sneaking in this blog post! However it's always a good idea to prepare as much as possible, and right as I finish writing this I'll be off back to studying. Another example of a rare opportunity in my academic experience, is me actually enjoying and looking forward to studying (intellectual property law is actually really exciting!). Getting my nerd on! A string of green tea refills and chocolate bars will help sustain this zealous and totally un-cool mentality through the early hours of next morning.

  19. Heh, glad to hear that you're enjoying IP :) Can't remember much from when I studied it (then again, that pretty much applies to everything I've ever studied, lol). I love the combination of mint and lavender - I'm a huge sucker for pastels and you wear them together so well. The white shirt is so pretty as well! How cold has it been in Sydney lately huh? I'm surprised you said it was under 20 degrees, it's been more like 10 degrees :p Brrrrr.

  23. You look amazing. ^^ I love how delicate the blouse looks, and how wonderfully colourful the shoes are. I hope your exams are going well too. IP law seems so exciting! I'm not surprised you have fun studying it. :D I'm lucky cos my exams finished yesterday, I haven't blogged for ages cos of exams, I'm obviously not as smart as you as I have to study -every minute- of my swotvac. Lol! I should send you some chocolate or a little exam emergency kit. xD

    ReplyDelete
  24. Intellectual property law does sound exciting! (Much more exciting than Taxation Law which I'm doing next semester). I always love your pastel outfits! This one and the pastel cake-tiered skirt with the thin blue belt you wore in one of your past posts are my faves x

  104. darling, you look wonderful as always, and your photographs, as always look perfect. i agree, i think pastels can really be a year long thing. although, i tend to shy away from wearing them myself because i always feel too tan for the head-to-toe pastel look. i guess i am a bit self conscious. anyway, good luck with studying, glad that you are enjoying what you have to study as well. it always makes the process easier!
