Not Quite Green with Envy – More Mint

At the end of 2012 I was saying I don’t think I can embrace the 2013 Pantone colour of the year Emerald. However, I have become not quite green with envy over all things mint! You know over the last couple of weeks I have been going on about my new mint Ralph Lauren Pants and you may have noticed I’ve also added in a fair few posts that are heavy on the turquoise. Now, I’m searching the web for great mint or turquoise accessories that might work with these looks.

And at last I have found the perfect clutch and statement bib necklace at Monsoon Accessorize! For years I have loved Monsoon and now that they ship worldwide I can love their accessories shop too!

Perfect Accessories: Besides the fact that these are too cute and a great match for my new mint crush and long-standing love of turquoise the price is right! The clutch is only 35 pounds sterling (about $45 AUD) and the necklace is 19 pounds ($25 AUD)! Definitely perfect. The prices are so good I wouldn’t even qualify for the free shipping on orders over 100 pounds but I think I can probably afford the 5 pounds it will cost to ship to my side of the world.

What do you think about these accessories from Monsoon Accessorize? Should I continue with my mission to not quite be green with envy and add more minty freshness to my life?

Be sure to check out Monsoon and Monsoon Accessorize, they currently have a 70% off sale and I could easily spend a stack of cash on their cute stuff.



p.s. – Thank you to Monsoon Accessorize for sponsoring this post.
