Soft Grey and Mint Green + Style With a Smile link up

Hello, I hope you’re all doing well! I had a relaxing weekend doing not very much! Yesterday I had a hospital appointment with an orthapaedic surgeon about my bunions; it seems surgery is inevitable if I want to be rid of the pain. It may not be until next year due to Covid, but it’s good to get the ball rolling. I’m not looking forward to being out of action for weeks, but I’m hoping it will enable me to continue running in the long term (and wear heels!).

I got the idea of pairing soft grey and mint green together from one of my favourite shirt dresses…

In the meantime, funky trainers and these gorgeous Calla sandals will keep my feet happy. Calla shoes are made for ladies with bunions and are incredibly comfortable. The grey ruffles on these sandals really compliment this satin sleeve top. I love statement sleeves, particularly with big organza puff sleeves, but they often feel scratchy. This top achieves the same effect without the discomfort. I got the idea of pairing soft grey and mint green together from one of my favourite shirt dresses (seen here). I usually veer towards combining grey with pink, but I wanted to try something different this time.

Until recently I was being quite restrained about buying new clothes but I’ve had a bit of a blow out this last week. As well as a couple of investment purchases (jacket and shirt) I’ve bought a few new tops that I can wear to work. I also ordered this top in blush pink, but bizarrely the fabric is slightly different and the fit is smaller. I’ll probably still keep it though.

I toyed with the idea of choosing either a dark grey or dark green bag for a two-colour tonal palette. But as you probably know by now, I often like to add a third accent colour to my outfits. I’ve always loved purple and green together, so I pulled out this oversized Ri2k bag and matching Ted Baker purple sunglasses. I added some darker green with my jewellery for contrast.

In other news, I’m finally getting started with my YouTube channel. Isobel has been behind the camera and we’re both learning to edit. Hopefully I’ll be able to upload my first vlog very soon!

If you have any tips or advice for starting a YouTube channel please send them my way!

      Thanks so much Heather. I’m sorry to hear about your Crohns and arthritis. My husband has flare ups of arthritis/gout in his big toe and he really suffers with it. Unfortunately the anti-inflammatory tablets are not good for the stomach either. Hope you have a good weekend xx

    Another beautiful color combo! I love your idea of a “third element.” It adds interest and pulls the whole look together. What a cute top! I’m looking forward to your YouTube channel. I keep thinking about that and will someday take the dive!!

    Love a statement sleeve. The top is gorgeous Emma. I don’t envy you the operation! Calla are so comfortable with or without bunions. I’m looking forward to seeing your first vlog. I will help in any way that I can Emma, but I’m fairly new to it too. Message me any questions and if I know the answer will help xx

    • Emma Peach says:

      Thanks Laurie! I’m not looking forward to surgery…I might lose my nerve nearer the time! Thank you for your offer of help, I’m sure I’ll have some questions for you when I get started xx

    Not sure if these will help you, but I have used these and they have put a small amount of correction to my bunion. I have one operated on about 5 years back and its not something I want to repeat for my other foot unless absolutely necessary.

    I put the plastic one on a night for a few months and the soft ones during the day. May be worth trying.

    • Emma Peach says:

      Thanks Stu, I’ll have a look at these. One of my school friends had bunion surgery in her 30s and told me to try one of these first so it’s definitely worth a try…I don’t really want to have surgery because by all accounts it’s very painful!

    Ahhhh! You look so great! Those pants look great on you!
