The Color Mustard

Remember my post about my desperate attempt to look stylish for work during my chaotic moving time? These outfit pictures were taken within the same week of that hectic time. I had only limited options of accessories and clothes then, and only one bag. All my other things were still in my old house, and I happened to only have this catchy mustard color purse on hand, so naturally all my outfit choices were based on this very bag!
Polkadot baggy shirt: Mom's. Skirt: Neiman Marcus. Shoes: Yongki Komaladi. Purse and skinny belt: unbranded. Gold flower earrings: F21. Bracelets: from Jerusalem.

Here's another way I styled this baggy polkadot shirt. It's an old shirt, and it was my Mom's, actually. ^_^

I love the colors in your outfit. There is something so gorgeous about a colorful print against a black background. The mustard bag is a really pretty touch.

Oh how fun! I'm such a polka dot freak. I think you should keep your Mom's blouse forever. She won't mind, right? Right Mom??

Loving the skirt and the flowers around the bottom too!

You look fabulous, LeeAnne. LOVE that gorgeous skirt. The colors are amazing, and your mom's polka-dotted blouse is timeless. I had a few similar ones and they never go out of style. Like the first better combination better. Scrolled down and LOVE your turquoise dress too, with that adorable Hello Kitty necklace. Perfect!! You really got me with the black and white though (under Beyond Comfort Zone). That has always been my favorite combination.

Thank you for stopping by the shop. Glad you liked my whimsical header. It was made for me by a most talented friend, Anita Rivera. You should visit her AMAZING page. It's like going into a fairy tale. Castles Crowns and Cottages at
