Mustards & Squibs

Sep 21, 2012

So if I can be frank here...I actually had a pretty hard time layering this. My first fall outfit!  I was staring at my clothes-ridden floor in shock, not understanding what was going on. I felt like I just lost my super powers, like my wand just snapped-- like I turned into a Squib over night, if you will (#harrypotterreference).

So, this was my final shot at it. And I sighed in relief. Turns out I just had to smack my wand a couple of times to get it going again.

Side note: can we please talk about our love of mustard? Ready, go.

Dress- c/o Sugarlips (get it here)
Blazer- UO
Purse-UO
Checkered shirt- F21
Booties- Topshop

  2. Such an adorable autumn outfit! I'm so jealous that you can pull of mustard yellow.. it's the only shade of yellow I like but with skin tone there's no way I can wear it :(

  8. What a cute little dress! It looks really sharp (do people still say sharp?) when layered with the blazer. And that bag is great too!

  15. I like this outfit and I like it a lot. Also, on mustard: I LOVE it on everyone else but it looks so bad on me and I think that is a cruel trick to play, mustard. Mustard, you're a dick. (But you look lovely in mustard, to clarify. I have gone off on a weird tangent. I am sorry).
