I love all colors in the yellow family, especially mustard. It only made sense, then, that I tried on and later purchased these mustard chinos in Zara recently. While I rarely wear color on the bottom, I’m challenging myself to change that this year. Some style practices are good convention and others aren’t necessary. So, mustard pants, it is!
Jacket: Ann Taylor (on sale)
Blouse: Express Outlet c/o St. Louis Premium Outlets
Pants: Zara (size 8)
Necklace: Kendra Scott (new for Fall 2016)
If you read my round-up of affordable, colorful pants for fall, you’d recognize today’s featured pair. I bought them when I also purchased the green chinos shown in this post. While I like the relaxed fit of the green chinos more, I do love the vibrant color and more polished look of this mustard pair.
When I purchased the pants, I knew I wanted to create an outfit with the cool color combination of mustard, white, and grey. By the way, how fabulous does the Kendra Scott Jayce necklace in gray granite look in this combination? It seems like it will go with so much in my wardrobe.
A white blazer is such a seasonless style staple for me. See how I’ve worn one here, here, here, here, here, and here. The white blazer featured in those posts fell apart, though, so I’ve been hoping to replace it. I was thrilled, then, to find my new white blazer on mega sale at Ann Taylor right now. It has the perfect longer length. It’s a cotton-blend blazer which makes it ideal for all seasons, unlike the wool version. And, did I mention that it’s on sale and that sale is on sale?
Talking about bargain buys, my pumps were such a steal at the Saks Off 5th store at the St. Louis Premium Outlets. They were under $40! They were such a lucky find because I’ve wanted a pair of these studded French Connection pumps for a longtime, but they kept selling out. Finding them at that price and in grey was such good fortune.
