What I Wore Sunday: Mustard + Navy

Sunday, April 7, 2013

So I've been trying to mix colors in my closet that are a little 'nontraditional' for me. And let me just say that mustard and navy were meant to be together. I can't take the credit though, since I was inspired by this picture:

Love the navy and mustard together:)
So pretty. 

This was a pretty un-exciting weekend. I did build a snow cave though (seriously). It was part of my wilderness emergency medicine class yesterday. I told Stephen that now we can sleep soundly in the knowledge that I can build a snow cave for shelter if we are ever caught outside in the middle of a blizzard, but I don't think that he has total faith in my abilities.

And about this perfect, perfect skirt: I tried to resist it, or at least find a cheaper version. I did find a very similar one at T.J. Maxx, but it fit me like most things at T.J. Maxx (as in, it didn't). But then this J. Crew skirt went on sale, and then they had an extra 30% off the sale price...and I can't say that I regret purchasing it since it seems very high quality and fits perfectly. Plus it's beautiful (and navy is so versatile, right?)

The details:

Eyelet skirt: J. Crew (purchased on sale with an extra 30% off)
Mustard sweater: J. Crew (old)
Necklace: Loft (old), similar
Suede wedges: Target

Happy Divine Mercy Sunday! Linking up with Fine Linen and Purple and Plane Pretty.


  1. I really love your outfit! The colour combination is perfect.

  2. SUCH a gorgeous skirt! I think it was worth it.

    Also, building a snow cave sounds awesome! I don't think they had such awesomeness when my mom was in med school, but maybe it's because we live in the desert. Boooring. I'll tell her she needs to up her game. JUST IN CASE. :)

  3. I love this outfit!!! It's so cute!!!!

  4. i love that skirt...can't wait to wear tailored stuff like that again! :)

  5. Great outfit, navy and mustard are a perfect combo. I think you will definitely get a ton of wear out of that beautiful skirt!

  6. I've had wilderness medicine training too (OK... in my case, it was just first aid and survival) and I've spent a few winters in Montana and Minnesota so I can vouch for the effectiveness.

  7. That IS a gorgeous skirt--totally worth it. :)

  8. Yesss ... navy and mustard are a match made in fashionista heaven. And eyelet is one of my favorite things.

  9. Lovely outfit! I've love for you to link up to My Style Monday. http://fashionsgreatesthits.blogspot.com/2013/04/my-style-monday_8.html

  10. Great outfit. Love the mustard sweater. I'm doing a link up this Thursday April 11. Show me your favorite spring trend. Woudl love it if you joined. I'm also giving away a $300 gift card to Gap. Check it out.



  11. The skirt is beautiful, well made, and looks so lovely on you. It was a good buy and in such a versatile color can definitely become a wardrobe workhouse for you. Plus the eyelet makes it so much more interesting than a plain skirt.

  12. That skirt is so beautiful! Definitely not a purchase you'll regret - when's the last time pencil skirts WEREN'T in style?

  13. What a great combo! My current fav is green and hot pink--love pairing contrasting colors together.

  14. Love the mustard yellow and navy...so cute together! I also love the addition of the grey tights and shoes!
