What I Wore Sunday: mustard + mauve

Sunday, March 3, 2013





I went on a serious (and much needed) cleaning frenzy this weekend and in the process, I realized that my closet is full of outfit possibilities. There are so many ways to remix what I already have (money and guilt free!) I made some related New Year's resolutions that I haven't done a great job keeping, but there's no time like the present...

So normally Pinterest is my best friend for re-mixing outfits, but today I didn't need it because I had my lovely sister, Ingrid. I planned on wearing this mauve skirt and turquoise necklace with a burgundy cardi, but she insisted that I wear this mustard one. And I think she was 100% right. So full credit goes to her since I'm not sure that I ever would have tried this combo on my own! Also, she is a stellar photographer.



Stephen is working again this weekend so we went to the evening Sunday mass (hence the late post). Tomorrow begins what I've been referring to as D Day (a.k.a. day 1 of my General Surgery rotation). I'm glad that I had my sister, cleaning, and closet remixing to keep me from thinking about it.

Celebrating Sunday and linkin' it up as usual with Fine Linen and Purple. Also joining Plane Pretty and the Woestmans. Happy Sunday!

Cardi: Target
Blouse: Banana Republic (old)
Necklace: Etsy
Skirt: J. Crew (last seen here)
Shoes: Madewell skimmers

  2. I don't know that I would have trusted your sister either, but she was totally right! And that necklace — what a statement piece.

  11. Isn't it satisfying to find new outfit combos?

    I am a student too (MPH in Maternal and Child Health at UNC), and therefore very poor and always trying to find creative ways to stretch my wardrobe! Mustard is an underrated, but very useful, color to have in rotation.

  12. You look stunning as always!
    I so admire those of you who are brave enough to mix it up with colors, I just can not bring myself to do it! I loooove the look though!
    How fun to get to spend some quality time with your sister, she is a great photographer indeed. :-)
