One of my favorite colors this fall has been mustard. It's been everywhere. I jumped right on this trend. I wore this mustard dress to a wedding a few weeks ago and I wore this mustard turtleneck to work last week. It doesn't stop there! Other recent mustard purchases include a mustard blanket scarf I plan on wearing when it gets a little cooler and the mustard dress in my post today!

I snatched this dress up at Forever 21 last week. With a $15 price tag, how could I not get it?  The color was just perfect. I love dresses made out of sweater-material. You can't tell in the pictures, but the dress has a little breast pocket. The pocket came in super handy when my hands were full at work. I stuck my phone in the pocket! 

When I put the dress on, I knew it needed a little something extra, so I added this fun scarf. It's actually a hair accessory, but it works perfectly as a scarf too, doesn't it?

Other mustard-wear I'm eyeing: these gorgeous mustard pants, this mustard pencil dress that's perfect for the office, and this fun off-the-shoulder mustard sweater dress

A Little Gaudy


HAPPY FALL! Finally, cooler temperatures. While other people love summer, the beach, and the ocean, I prefer fall. I love sitting on our balcony with a hot cup of coffee, making cozy foods like chicken pot pie, and lighting a million fall scented candles (like pumpkin spice and apple cinnamon!).

So, onto my outfit! I went to Zara the other day with my friend. The mission: to find these pearl bedazzled jeans. I came out with the jeans, the top in this post, and these amazing cobalt heels. The heels were returned shortly (what's the opposite of buyers remorse?). I kept the top - because how can I not? How cute is it? I obviously kept the jeans too. 


If you know me, follow me on instagram, or read my blog, you know that I'm basically a grandma. I'm an (almost) 30 year old  who would much rather lay on the couch reading a book than go out. That totally transcends to my wardrobe. I love anything "grandma-esque", and anything gaudy. This top is a little gaudy, but I love it. The printed jewel design is just so me and added some much needed flair to the boring work outfits I've been wearing lately. I paired the top with black pants, gold earrings, and one of my favorite lipsticks, Captive by Mac (I wore this shade on my wedding day!). 

If you're feeling a little blah lately like me, do yourself a favor and go buy this shirt!

Thanks so much for reading! Enjoy the fall weather :)
