Oooh! I do like a dash of mootard - outfit post



In fact. That tis a fib. I am not a fan  -  at ALL.

Not when it comes to food, anyway. 

Yep. It's the return of The Woolen.

Clothes on the other hand. Why yes!!! I cannot get enough of things that are mustard coloured. I have, at last count, 7 tops and 3 different kinds of accessories. If I see something containing this colour I am on it like a fly on the proverbial. With Autumn on the way -  or at least here to stay, considering it joined the UK in June - what better than a lovely dose of warming  yellowness such as this? I have even spied tights in this colour recently. 

Oh. I went giddy.

Tweet! Tweet!

And I am still finding any excuse I can to wear my lovely Acorn & Will brooches. This one shows the colour much clearer than my initial post.
   
In fact -  I am building outfits around them. Normally it is the shoes I want to wear, or how I can be bothered to fix my hair. And now? Now it is brooches.  

Well -  it saves me time staring, frowning and huffing at my wardrobe if I have one piece of the outfit puzzle solved, dunnit?   

TTFN!

  3. I too am a sucker for a mustard woollen, they have a certain English land girl vintage-ness to them with out having to be vintage - I don't know if that makes any sense at all, probably not:)
    Anyway your looking fabulous as always!

  4. Fabulous! Your outfits are so well put-together, I love it. The mustard looks great. As a knitter I admit I'm always a fan of the woolens! Never mind that it will be almost 95F (35C) here tomorrow. But mornings are cooler so I can tell Fall is coming! :)

  6. You look great! Can't wait for it to cool down so I can slip on a sweater. So much nicer with my less than toned upper arms! It looks like mustard is popular this year. Just bought a lovely sweater this month in that color.

  15. Gorgeous – and yay, another mustard (clothing) lover! :D Love those brooches too.

  16. The mustard wouldn't look half so hot in the absence of red lips and nails. I always shy away from any yellow hues, I fancy they highlight the sallow-ness of my skin. Looking at you, resplendent in mustard, and reading the comments, I reckon I'm missing a trick...

  17. You do have the most superb dress sense! I love that outfit, and the little bird brooch really makes it.

  18. I look hiiiieddddeous in mustard!

    You, however, look like a mustard toned angel! Love that jumper.

  19. I love mustard too, though quite often it ends up making me look yellow so I don't actually own very much. I would love a nice mustard cardi. Oh, and I am with you - I DESPISE hot English mustard, I have tried and failed to enjoy it in any way. I do like grainy, dijon, and even (gasp) American hotdog mustard though. Noms x

  20. You look lovely! I need to gte myself some mustard too, it's such a fab colour.

  21. I think I'm the opposite - love eating it, can't wear it (my fault - don't have the right colouring!)
    Suits you though!

  22. Ooh check you out being all transitional season dressy - or whatever the glossies would call it. Summery blouse with the perfect Autumnal woollen. The brooch does indeed 'pop' against it. (Can you tell I've been reading fashion mags in the bath?)

  23. That brooch is sooo gorgeous, I am quite sure I'D build outfits around it! The mustard suits you- I like the shade but it doesn't suit my complexion! The taste I am not sure about!

    I'm mad for greens and blues at the mo', not sure why!
