Radiant Orchid and Mint.

I wore this Outfit to work on Monday. I have been doing a little red, pink or burgundy/marsala to work this week as an ode to Valentine's day coming up. I basically wore 3 pieces I had neglected for a long time. The Mint Cardigan paired so well with that Radiant Orchid Blouse (I love that bright, vivid and girly shade of Pink). And I kept the bottom monotone and very business-like with my Black Pinstriped Trouser-Style Pants and Black Patent Leather Pumps. I love that the 2 Bright Tops (in Soft, Girly Colors) play off more Masculine-looking bottom part of this Outfit. And my Green Bag matches the darker green embellishment (a flower with vines in sequins) off the side of the Cardigan, on the front. I kept the jewelry and hair simple, added my newest pink lipstick on and called it a Monday. What do you think? Do you own a Mint Cardigan? I want to see how you have worn it to work.
