For the Love of Mustard

Do you ever get randomly obsessed about a color? I wore a pair of mustard-colored tights a few days ago and got so many stares (and compliments!). I think those tights are the only mustard-colored item of clothing I've ever owned. For some reason after seeing this gorgeous photo a few days ago on Facehunter, I couldn't get the mustard pencil skirt out of my head. There is a very similar version available on J Crew...but, of course I couldn't stop there -- here are a few more tantalizing mustard items to ponder...




1. Topshop mustard tights [not sure if they have these anymore, but Uniqlo also makes them...]
2. Urban Outfitters, Tikirani Goldenrod blouse.
3. Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent swiss dot mustard chiffon blouse, Bluefly.com.
4. J Crew double serge pencil skirt.
5. Kimchi Blue Dacha Tunic, Urban Outfitters.
6. Ribbed turtleneck, Forever 21.
7. Chi Mihari lace-up oxfords, ASOS.
8. Contrast floral print scarf, Forever 21.

I love the mustard skirt! Actually, I want the whole outfit the girl is wearing.

[Tara] said...

michiko-- her outfit is divine! It is one of those outfits that I would never think to put together myself -- which always impresses and intrigues me.
