WIW 5/9 Happy Hour Edition

Going out to help bolster a friend who's weathering a recent break up.
Acne mint blouse and vest, Anna Del Russo for H&M name necklace, R13 shredded jeans and Damir Doma gold snake embossed elf booties.
I first tried my gold peep toes pumps, too businessy; then my gold Isabel Marant wedge sneakers, too big and blingy, so I settled on these.

    A very fresh combo. Love the gold accents with the mint!

    Killer to the power of Killer

    I LOVE the bookending of the gold shoes and your golden locks, which is picked up again in the necklace and watch. So delicious I can't stand it. Queen Mint, you look beautiful, edgy, polished, pretty, RATE, powerful and very Spring all at once in this outfit. One of all time Anna-Faves. 

    WOW. You launched me into orbit with this outfit. xo

    Just love everything about this:  the shoes are divine; the necklace sortof funny, and the mint very fresh.  I bet the sight of you will cheer up your friend.  Have fun!

    Love this! everyone will know your name too! Mint and gold are divine together. 

  • Janet replied 8 years ago

    Hooray for mint! You look great in this. 

    I'm keeping an eye out for a mint top for summer -- I only have mint cotton tees and sometimes I'd like something in a less casual fabric. I figure I'd better get it now before mint disappears! 

  • Elizabeth P replied 8 years ago

    Perfect footware choice for the jeans!  Have fun with your friend.

  • MsMary replied 8 years ago

    Love this!  I remember when you got that necklace, and it puts a big smile on my face!  And mint is definitely your color!

    I wish you'd been down here to help me weather my breakup...  ;)

  • Thistle replied 8 years ago

    You look terrfic. Wow, mint is totally your color. And the booties are just amazing. I love how they echo the gold of your necklace.

    I hope all goes well with your friend.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    I've said it before and I'll say it again - I ADORE you in mint Anna! It really is an incredible color on you.

    You're a good friend :)

  • BethL replied 8 years ago

    Ooh, I really like this, Anna. It's edgy and fun at the same time. You're really good at that particular combination. Like everyone else has said, wow, mint looks fantastic on you with your coloring. You'll be cheering up everyone in your vicinity.

    Aaaaaah, my Anna style fix. Thank you, dear, for posting! I needed that.  You are the mint early adopter and I adore how you keep showing me new ways to wear it.  I would never have thought of mint and gold. It looks incredible together!  xo  K.

    I like!!!!

  • carambola replied 8 years ago

    The whole outfit is amazing. I love juxtaposition of the luxe drapey top and refined gold shoes with the shredded jeans.

  • rabbit replied 8 years ago

    Love this outfit, it looks great on you and perfectly balances so many seemingly contradictory style directions - from delicate to strong colors, polished to rate,  blingy to understated and subtle.

  • dustt replied 8 years ago

    adoring the blingy booties with that super blingy necklace!! and Mint is a great color on you - me not so much - so envious!!

  • missvee replied 8 years ago

    Fab shoes, and they look comfortable too.

  • rachylou replied 8 years ago

    Just beautiful!

  • Aida replied 8 years ago

    Oooh this is one of my best Anna! Soft mint, distressed denim, glam menswear shoes, and extra blingy necklace... The MIX here is just superb. The overall vibe has a great feel for both soft and tough, which is probably good for the occasion. It'd work well for happier times, too :)

  • Isabel replied 8 years ago

    OMG !!!  I love this !!!!   You are going to laugh, but the first thing that I thought of was Mary J Blige, who I just adore.  Do you know who she is ?  

  • MsMary replied 8 years ago

    Coming back to say that although you were not down here, you did indeed help me weather my breakup with emergency shipments of chocolate and awesome friendship!  You are as fab inside as you look outside, Ms. Anna!!!

  • CocoLion replied 8 years ago

    This is perfectly pin-worthy.  11 out of 10!  Have fun tonight, if that is possible when someone is mourning a break-up.

  • pil replied 8 years ago

    I feel silly just saying "I like this a lot" after reading the wonderful comments above :) But I *do* like it a lot - those boots are outstanding!

  • JenA replied 8 years ago

    Wow! You look great in mint and I love the gold shoes and necklace. I agree with CL, this is a pin-worthy!

  • Debra replied 8 years ago

    You look FANTASTIC !!!!!!!

  • Karie replied 8 years ago

    Another one of my favorite outfits of yours. Those gold booties are fabulous and the perfect choice for the outfit. The mint is a good color for you, and the necklace adds that extra special touch.

  • JAileen replied 8 years ago

    Great shoes! Love the shoes!

  • Marmee replied 8 years ago

    You look amazing!  Love the mint. I like the juxtaposition of the distressed denim with the ladylike top and jewelry.  And the bookending of your shoes and necklace.  

  • MsLuna replied 8 years ago

    You are super sweet to help cheer up a friend :) now the outfit: the mint green us such a happy colour, so I'm sure that can bring a smile to your friend's face :) but the most unexpected part of this outfit is the superb texture play! The distressed jeans, metal hardware and metallic boots! I love it!

  • Eliza replied 8 years ago

    Super fab. Love the pieces and the unexpected combinations. I never thnk to layer tops like that and the look is great. Glad you could get together with your friend.

  • Aubergine replied 8 years ago

    Love the whole look! I think the booties really were the perfect choice here. And the name necklace is just awesome.
