OOTD: Weekend Mint

As much as I wanted to resist the J.Crew honeycomb sweaters that Jean, Kelly, Wendy, and Sydney all scored in different colors, I couldn't resist this soft mint color.  So I overlooked the reality that honeycomb and cable sweaters look meh on me, and purchased this last time I was in J.Crew. How I love this color!
I am going to have to crop off my eyes in majority of my future photos because I noticed that the work pressure from last year has shown as a sure sign of wrinkles around my eyes. My good friend from work told me that she noticed it.  When I look at these photos, I can't help but notice how tired I look even after a 10 hour sleepathon last night.
Hope you enjoy these photos nevertheless.

  4. Love the mint color(and also your nail color!)I tried the sweater on after Christmas in store and I don't know if it's just that particular one, but it was extremely linty. I was wearing a black tank top underneath when I tried on and it was all white(I tried on a white sweater).

    1. I find that sweater shed a lot too. Not suitable to wear with materials that attract lint - knits, leggings, etc.

  5. Isn't that minty color yummy? I love that sweater. I actually shrank it in the wash with great success, so now it fits even better (shorter and slimmer in the torso). If you don't want it to shrink, definitely dry clean it. It shrank just from getting washed in cold water in the washer.

    1. Yes, I saw your post, Kelly. The sweater does fit much better after shrinking for you. I'm worried that it'll shrink too much after wash for me. I will def consider dry cleaning.

  6. Beautiful Vicky! I love the nails too, I painted my nails that colour the other night, snapped some photos and took it off LOL! I don't know why but I just can't get used to the colour on me although I love it on everyone else. I'm strange, I know.

    I don't see the tiredness in your photos, but I know how you feel, I was looking back at older blog photos and I looked fresher and (gasp) younger! I need a serious lesson in balance or I'm going to regret it!

    1. lol, you are too funny. I would be too lazy to take it off even if I didn't like it, since I worked so hard to put it on in the first place. I'm lazy like that. :)
      Unfortunately no one is gonna look younger over time. However I'm hoping the process will not be this fast. :( Stress doesn't help our look, and skin.

  11. Vicky! I haven't seen much of you lately. I know you're super busy with work and everything. I hope things will get better for you. The color of this sweater looks way better on you than on me. Love your nail polish and of course, I am drooling over your Chanel =) Have a great week!

  13. I love the sweater with your cameo! I hope you can get some rest! I feel pretty self-conscious about my eyes when I do not get enough sleep. :( I am already dreading tomorrow morning...it is almost 9 pm and I still need to wash, dry, and straighten my hair! Ack!
