I’m mad about mustard.
I own a pair of mustard trouser pants, but these skinnies up the ante quite a bit. Mustard is such a rich hue for fall and I just love it with reds and greens and other jewel tones.
As with skinny denim and jeggings, it’s all about balance. With a more structured and straight bottom, you’ll want to loosen it up a bit on the top, whether it’s a loose button up, oversized sweater or a blazer for polish. Here, I paired mine with a sleeveless top that ties at the bottom, a statement necklace and the ever-versatile denim jacket.
Took awhile to get the perfect jump, but look at that face. The look of an old cheerleader!
Top: Old Navy
Necklace and Pants: H&M (pants are $14.95 here)
Shoes: Sam & Libby at Target (available here)
Bracelet: Kate Spade New York (surprise sale – join their mailing list)
Purse: Philip Lim for Target
So if you don’t count the accessories, this whole outfit was under $30! Let me start from the top. Literally. I found it on the Old Navy sale rack for $4.97. OK, so, only now has the weather cooled down a bit, but it has been 90+ degrees here in Sacramento for weeks, so I couldn’t leave it behind. It’s a great piece for layering, too. Onto the pants! They are from H&M. $14.95 in a wide assortment of colors. Please believe I will be going back to get more. My advice: If you any kind of curve and/or booty, go a size up, even though they stretch. Shoes. Well, they should’ve been $29.99 but I won a battle at my local Target store because they were labeled $8.98. Gotta honor the advertised price! They take me back to my childhood in a major way. I will be spotted wearing these with tights and a skirt/dress soon. Look for that on the blog.
Have you heard? Tomorrow I’m heading to the NAWBO – Sacramento Valley OWL Awards dinner. I was nominated for a Woman Innovator award. It’s quite the honor to be nominated among such a wonderful group of Sacramento women. We will see what happens tomorrow night. Thank you for your support! I wouldn’t have had the opportunity of being nominated had it not been for all of my fans, friends and family for spreading the TLG love.
