Fall-ing for mint | Outfit post

24 October, 2012

As temperatures haven’t significantly dropped yet, we’re still able to wear some of our spring/summer pieces, together with cardigans and light jackets at night. I wore this outfit a few days ago, to go out for dinner. As my company has a casual style, I didn’t want to dress up, but also didn’t want to dress down for my standards. I made a promise to myself a few years ago, not to wear sneakers/converse/flats when I go out at night (with some exceptions of course, depending on the occasion). So I decided to wear a quite casual outfit for me, but also kept my heels on (in this case, lower ones).

Tee: S&R, long cardigan: oldie (I had cut the label years ago, it was really annoying, so I don’t remember the brand), jeans: Zara, pumps: Zara TRF, bag: D&G, sunglasses: Ray-Ban folding wayfarers.

You know how much I hate when people comment something bad about my outfits. And even this time, when I thought I dressed down a lot for my standards I still got comments about wearing heels. It was a Saturday night out! What was I supposed to wear? Dirty sneakers? Why is it bad that I care about my image, and want to look good? Of course the person who commented on my heels (which is one of the lowest heeled pairs I own) is 6 years younger than me, and dresses very casual, with jeans, tees and converses all the time. I don’t comment on his outfits, and I don’t mind that he has a casual style, so why do I get these comments? It seems that we live in the era of casual style, and if you dress up even a little, you get weird looks from others. I don’t get it. I didn’t go to a picnic, or to a football match, I went for dinner, on a Saturday night. Anyway, enough with my monologue… This comment alone didn’t bother me, but it seems that many people (mostly men) are commenting on my looks, and I don’t really need fashion advice from them, so I shouldn’t even care, or listen.

These shoes (which are mint green in real life, but look turquoise in photos), have already been saved here, with this outfit.

What do you think about this outfit? Is it ok for a “casual” Saturday night out for dinner? What do you usually wear for a night out? Do you like to dress up, or do you prefer casual looks?

See you all really soon. Have a nice day!

  1. Πολύ ωραίο χρώμα έχουν τα παπούτσια! Κι η τσάντα υπέροχη!
    Μη δίνεις σημασία σε κακά σχόλια! Πραγματικά δε μπορώ να καταλάβω γιατί μερικοί άνθρωποι το βρίσκουν τόσο σημαντικό να κριτικάρουν τους άλλους για την εμφάνισή τους! Ο καθένας έχει το δικό του ξεχωριστό στυλ και έχει δικαίωμα να το υποστηρίζει όπως θέλει… Αν είχαμε όλοι το ίδιο στυλ τότε δε υπήρχε η μοναδικότητα, ούτε η αλληλεπίδραση, ούτε καν έμπνευση! 😉

    • Thank you Ela! I don’t have a problem with casual style, I dress in a casual way very often, but when I go out at night, I like to dress up a bit to feel better. It’s a really nice feeling.
      The cardigan has actually been in my closet, since secondary school (and I still love it to bits) and the t-shirt was a present for my birthday last year. 🙂

    • Thank you very much for your comment!
