OOTD: Mustard & Turquoise

Mustard yellow is one of those colors that I have stayed away from for a long time.  A few weeks ago I saw a post from one of my favorite blogs FreeUrCloset about Must Have Mustard and I will admit, I was inspired!  I played it safe with the mustard trend wearing a tank top, I am still not sure how I feel about the color, I love it on other people, but I’m not sure if it is for me.

Navy three-quarter sleeve cardigan from Gap Outlet, last seen here.  Mornings are still cool here in Northern California so I thought I would be practical and wear a cardigan.  I love the cardigans from the Gap Outlet, the prices are fantastic and they last forever!

Mustard yellow v-neck shell tank top $6 Target, bought a few weeks ago.  I feel like it is best to spend a small amount of money on something that you are not sure about or taking a small style risk on.  I was willing to invest $6 minus my 5% REDCard discount on this mustard tank.  I think I like the color, it seems a bit garish, but it grew on me by the end of the day.

Gray wide-leg trousers New York & Company bought years ago, last seen here.  I used to only wear slacks or trousers to work.  I think I felt like I was wearing a uniform or my teacher clothes when I dressed in more work or professional clothes, but I like these pants.  New York & Company is great for inexpensive work clothes, especially if you are petite!

Metallic flat sandals $12 Target, last seen here.  These are awesome shoes, buy them in every color if you can!  I would if I wasn’t trying to be so frugal!

Turquoise necklace and earrings by Ralph Lauren $15 and $8 from Nordstrom Rack, bought in January 2013.  I have had these for several months and have only worn them once before, here.  I love turquoise!  I think the contrast between the mustard yellow and turquoise is really pleasing to the eye.  The turquoise is a great pop of color and makes this outfit more spring-like.


I had to rock a side pony-tail, I’d been too long! This selfie is me trying to convince myself mustard and turquoise are a good combination.  Have you worn mustard?  What are your thoughts?

  1. Natasha and I are speechless and very flattered to have inspired your post! I’ve strayed away from mustard for years (thinking it would clash with my sunny personality & big blonde hair, lol) but am so glad I gave it a try, and found out that it goes well with all skin tones (and hair colors)! We love it on you, and love how you paired it with turquoise necklace and gray pants! Gorgeous. 😘

    XOXO Nensi
