Styling: Mustard Seed Miracles

So it seems pretty obvious that I have developed a recent obsession with the color yellow. Within the past 2 months I have purchased, made, featured, or photographed at least 20 different things in the hue’s range.

With this in mind, it comes as no surprise that in this “Styling” the main attraction is a warm fuzzy mustard cardigan. This cozy sweater was my favorite find of autumn – discovered while doing a fabric run at a local thrift shop – the saturated color and high quality tailoring forced me to pop it in my cart. Combined with the ever-modern stripes of an old school Old Navy dress, grey leggings, sequined gold peter pan collar necklace, and black vintage boots, this is one of those ensembles I can see myself wearing for years to come!

Styling: The French Sailor

Welcome to my latest series – “Styling!” I will be sharing favorite outfits of the month, complete with notes on everything from inspiration to wardrobe details. In this first feature, what I’ve dubbed “The French Sailor,” I’ve combined a stretchy striped top that I scored from Crossroads with a thrifted skirt that I took in so it can sit high on my waist. The sweater tights, whose rainbow colored lint don’t come across in the pics, are a new favorite of mine from Target. The vintage taupe boots I purchased from Etsy and the navy stud earrings were a gift for the holidays. My favorite details? By far the scalloped under-layer of the skirt, vegan skinny belt and the beaded soft pink applique across the top of the shirt.

All is full of Love

Being a lover of hearts, red, and…well….love, I always find joy in this time of year when everything erupts in these themes. I’ll be the first to tell you that I don’t condone consumerism or gluttonous chocolate binging – but there is something to celebrating the people and things for which you have affections.

So in the spirit of the season I bestow you with a Pierogi Picnic valentine!
