I personally have this thing about yellow and black. My high school friend had a sweater once that was black, white, and yellow, and I swore that thing reminded me of a taxi! It even had the black and white square taxi design at the bottom of it. I hated that sweater. So I have to be reeeeaaaalll careful when it comes to wearing yellow and black together. Just for the record, I usually pair it with gray slacks for work, but I don't think gray and mustard mesh that well together. Am I wrong? Of course, I'm loving the leopard scarf with this outfit!
I thought this was a fun twist to mix up the mustard with a striped cardi. Actually, when I saw this pin on Pinterest, I thought of a friend that works on my floor at the Mother Ship. She wears long cardigans a lot and I could totally see her pulling this look off!
Now this? THIS color scheme idea was a little different for me because I would have NEVER thought about pairing mustard and burgundy together. For real? Would you? I'm not wild about the dress and cardigan combo, but this pin totally gave me inspiration to try these two fall colors together.
Like I shared in my Olive Inspo post a few weeks ago, I just don't think I should wear mustard around my face. And just like olive, the reason I think so is because they're both warm color tones and I'm a cool girl. Ha! Having said that, I guess the only way I could probably pull this color off is by wearing pants. Ha! Love the navy and the dots! Not sure about mustard on my butt tho.
And THIS pin - or one similar to it - is what started all my mustard inspiration for this post. A friend of mine sent me a text letting me know that Zulily was having a great sale and I needed to check it out. Nearly all the sale items, were mustard and I fell in love with this spin on the traditional military vest. It's probably the only way I would wear this hue around my face.
What do you think about mustard? Yay or nay? I would love to read your comments about this popular fall color.
