Must Try Mustard

Here I am. In these pants. Again. It's like a sickness, ya'll! I can't stop wearing them. It's like I grab something out of my closet, say to myself, "Self, what should I wear with this?". And then I pull out these pants.

I know this mustard color is still everywhere, which is fine with me (I love it). I think the reason is, despite what you might think, this color looks good on everyone. Red heads, brunettes and blondes all look great in mustard. Don't believe me? Try it!

    The pants are awesome; you looked great last night Kristen, and it was nice to finally meet you in person!

  2. Love this outfit and esp the belt (which I think I may have commented on my love for before)!

  3. I like this outfit a lot! Love the blouse!

  4. i have those pants! i keep forgetting they are in my closet! i need to break them out. you look fab!



  5. Love the color. I've been hesitant to try it out as a blonde but I'll take your word for it and go get myself something mustard!

  6. sigh. i wish it looked good on me, like it does on you. that color is tough for me!

  7. I'm new to following your blog and you saying "ya'll" in your post, made me so homesick! Mustard is a great color to wear this fall.

  8. @BiancaBianca, remember when Michelle Williams wore that incredible mustard dress? She's pale and blonde, like us! Try it - let me know how you like it!

  9. @Jaime @ La vie...J'aime REchel Bilson can wear mustard and looks great in it. You have the same coloring; I think it could work for you??? But you know what works for you a lot better than I do :)

  10. @SymbioticLife Ooh, where are you from? I try not to say it too much, although, frankly, I think ya'll should be universally accepted. Other languages have a plural you form, English does not. We need one. And ya'll is a contraction, which we already use all the time. So why not?? And, welcome, by the way - I'm glad to "meet" you!

    Okay, I'm obsessed with those pants!

  12. You're right about this color and you looked fantastic last night. All the LIT girls thought so too!! So happy you came!!! :)

  13. Keep grabbing them because mustard is a good color on you! Cross that, an amazing color on you!

    Love! ~Angel

  14. i haven't tried mustard in foreverrrrrrrrrr. i should. i love how you call yourself, "self."

    ps. i am giving away a cute dress!

  15. Nice thrift find - that "pussy-bow" style (still kind of feel awkward saying/typing that!) is all over the place now and of course in the $300-500 range (DVF, you sly fox). Looks great on you!


  16. Kristen-is that blouse really thrifted? Wow! It's fabulous and I like the new background scenery.

  17. Oh my GOODNESS girl I LOVE that top!! :) Gorgeous!! And how amazing is that that it's a thrift find!! How fun!
