#Fashion Friday… Rolling in the Mustard

I love fashion! Especially these days. Who doesn’t? But lately, the trend in design has been as close to anything goes as it ever has been before. Lace paired with black leather biker pants, sweat shirts with silk inserted into a split seam on back, riding boots with specially designed socks that are long enough to stick out of the top. The possibilities are endless!


On to color. The hues of 2014 were fabulous, especially since I’m not a huge fan of super bright pallets. However, I’m not a pastel girl, either. Thankfully, the annual 2015 color list holds a variety of goodies for the neutralista (fancy word created for those of us who love both the sassiness of rich colors and the romantic allure of pastels). More on that pallet will be covered in another post later on this month.

Nevertheless, there was one 2013 color (nope, I didn’t type 2014FallColorsthe wrong year) that I discovered late in the 2014 fashion game, aka fall. Suddenly I found myself on a race to find the perfect oversized mustard colored sweater. But wait! That color was popular two seasons ago, you’re saying. True. But a few stores still carry this gorgeous color (now creatively called misted yellow on most sites). I’m not a huge fan of misted yellow. It lacks the drama and power of mustard yellow’s saturated hue. See the proof in the 2014 color swatch to your left. Do you see a few of your favorites listed?

My love affair with mustard yellow began on Pinterest after I had stumbled across this pin put together by Sweet, right? This little doll is a creation by Elin Kling (follow her blog here). The repins started coming in, right away. Okay, now here comes the kicker. I clicked on the link, went to the site and guess what? The sweater was no longer available. The mustard colored vamp had bitten me, and I wasn’t going to be satisfied until I had one of these babies in my arsenal of comfy, cozy sweaters.

After about two months of frantically searching, I got lucky. The love of this season’s fashion life entered my world. Urban Outfitters and a manager named Evie (V for Vendetta comes to mind) made my day. While checking up on my favorite fashion stores and scouring through all the post-Black Friday online sales, I found this lovely oversized sweater on a deep discount. I saved the link on my cell phone, headed down to the local Urban Outfitters and snagged one of the last two small sweaters.

To add a touch of KayLeigh’s style to it, I bought a simple pair of Jennifer Lopez jeggings (Kohls) $54, added my Rampage boots (on sale at Macy’s for $20bucks), a black&white floral patterned scarf ($19 Old Navy) a pair of black&white boot socks by XOXO ($12 at Kohls) and then fell in love with myself! (Don’t be laughing at my little pic, now. I’m kind of a newbie) 😀


It’s not too late to get this look. Sweaters are on deep discount, so you’ll probably get a sweet deal. The stores are now making room for the clothing that goes along with my second favorite time of year… spring!

Once I get at least 5 comments, then I’ll add a picture of me wearing this crazy-fun outfit.

What do you think of the mustard/misted gold craze?

  1. I used to avoid mustard at all costs, but I love it now! Especially in accent pieces, like a necklace or a pair of heels. I also adore SheInside! Not only are the prices reasonable but nobody has cuter sweaters than them. I tend to wear fall colors into winter, oops! Great post.

      OMG! I LOVE Sheinside. I only recently discovered them while looking for the sweater I featured in this post. And now, I’m in love. Hopefully I’ll have them featured on my blog soon. Thx so much for commenting.

    YAY! I am not a fashion follower but I am glad the baggy sweaters are staying. I fell in love with them a few years back when they first came into style. It has been so hard to find some as of late but I am sure I will be seeing more now. Such great news! I love sweaters, and this seemingly happened over night. I have gotten a good 8 expensive ones in the last 5 months LOL

    • Yes! The baggy sweaters are back and I’m glad as well. I still have some leftover Express pieces from the last time this trend came around. Hope it stays longer this time. 🙂

  3. That is a really cute sweater. Yellow in general is such a difficult color to wear, but like most colors if you get the right shade for you – you can wear it. Looking forward to seeing the picas of you wearing your new purchase!

    • That’s exactly why I prefer the mustard yellow shade. It really works with my skin tone. Very eye-catching. Try stepping out in this baby and you’ll see what I mean. lol

  4. I love this trend and I think mustard mixes so well with so many neutral tones.

    • It really does Jessica. I’m going to wear this sweater tomorrow and since you’re my fifth visitor then it’s time for me to post my pic! Thx for stopping by!

  5. I love this mustard trend!
