A Ray of Style #7

Minted Green & Tangerine
Outfit Post by Ray

As I am extremely camera shy, I am grateful to have my stylish younger cousin Ray volunteer (willingly, I swear), to be my blog model. It's summertime here in SA, and she displays a breezy feminine look with vibrant splashes of tangerine & minted green.

She Wears:

White lace top - Forever 21
Aqua mint maxi skirt - Truworths (which is a local retail brand)
Mock croc tangerine sling bag - H&M
Scalloped edge ballet flats - Zara
Rings - Forever 21

Steal Her Style
I've found a few similar pieces to recreate Ray's serene summer look.

White lace top by Modstrom at welikefashion.com - $64
Green pleated maxi skirt at chicwish.com - $50
Tangerine tri-lock clutch bag with gold metal detail at Topshop - $77
White La Di Da printed bow ballet pumps at Asos - $22
Rose & leaf ring - $8
Owl embossed cameo ring - $11.50
Cream bow ring - $8
All rings by Accessorize.com

*Special Thanks to Ray for participating in this outfit post

Such a pretty look - I would have never thought to combine mint and tangerine but they work so well together!

I especially love the pleated maxi skirt - one of these is definitely going on my summer 'Need' list for 2013!

Awww, how sweet that your cousin modeled for you! She's lovely and I love her outfit, that aquamarine colored maxi skirt is so pretty, I wish that your local retail store had an online store. (I'd buy that skirt in a heartbeat, it's so pretty and has great movement.) She has a fantastic sense of style, I'm going to have to figure out how to do a look similar to this.
And yeah, I am so jealous of that green grass. It looks so warm there!

Alexandra Zakharova said...

Your cousin sure looks lovely ! And those cut-out ballet flats are so gorgeous.... :)

But wishing to see you on the other side of the camera too !!

Yes it's very sad she died young..... bit in the little time she had on earth... she became unforgettable and it's hard to imagine anyone living even an 80 years and coming close to what she is to the world.

Much love
