mustard & lace.

The week is already half over?! Thank gawd for that. Unfortunately when I'm at work the time drags, and when I'm at home I never have enough time for all the things I want to do. I did, however, have time on Monday to take outfit photos of one of my favorite new outfits.

I'm wearing:
Top: vintage via Quarter Life
Skirt: Ann Taylor Loft, thrifted ($5!)
Sweater: Land's End, gift
Wedges: Chelsea Crew
Earrings: Urban Outfitters
Pin: antique
Lipstick: Clinique

A couple months ago I realized I did not have a single shred of yellow in my wardrobe, and I'd been afraid to try anything mustard colored because I thought it would clash with my super pale skin. However, when I was helping out Lisa at the Quarter Life booth at Fenton Street Market and saw this top, I decided to challenge that. Add some dark-ish lipstick, and ta-dah! I actually really like the way it looks. I'm also super excited about this skirt because I've been looking for a good pleated skirt that isn't too short or too long. Plus, it was $5, so who cares if it's a little big on me?!

I decided to add in the little antique pansy pin because it's the same shade of yellow and it's so cute! And the sweater needed something. My favorite antiques & jewelry store is going out of business, and this little pin was one of my purchases on my last trip. 

Check out our new rug! Not only is it antique, but look at all the pretty colors! I love it. And it was only $20! Take that, rug I would've gotten from Target or Ikea that would be substantially less awesome.

Hope you're having a great week!
