OOTD: mustard and mayonnaise

Cardigan // Flats: Target (similar) // Jeans // Tank: Old Navy (similar) // Sunnies: Walmart // Necklace: Local store

I was tremendously nervous over wearing a mustard yellow cardigan. Sure, I was excited about adding it to my cardigan collection but actually wearing it scared me. 

I have this weird thing about wearing a color that's the same as my hair color next to my hair. So I don't think I should ever wear yellow near my hair. When I was a redhead I didn't like to wear red on top either. I'm just weird like that. 

I'm also weird about how mustard would look with my pale skin. Mustard looks great on tanned people. I am melaninistically-challenged. Could this whiteness rock the mustard yellow?

But then I thought about how mustard yellow occurs in nature. Well, in MY nature. It occurs with mayonnaise on a burger or a sandwich. 

Stay with me here...if mustard and mayo can go together, then my pale whiteness can rock mustard yellow. And since my hair isn't the same shade of yellow, I think it actually works quite nicely.

Now, after reading that diatribe, you deserve a snack. Burger, anyone?



  1. I love the yellow with the teal necklace!

  2. You rock it girl!! And the teal necklace breaks it up, totally works for you!!!


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
