Mixing cobalt and mustard again + link up

Mixing cobalt and mustard again, Marks and Spencer mustard ribbed jumper River Island cobalt trousers

We all have our favourite colour combinations, right? Well, cobalt and mustard is definitely one of mine. The last time I wore these two colours together it was the other way round – mustard trousers and a cobalt top. When I bought these trousers in the River Island sale a couple of months ago I knew I wanted a mustard or ochre sweater to go with them. However, the only one I had was the bat wing sparkly number that I paired with my glittery skinny jeans. I know there are plenty of other colour options for these bright blue trousers, but when I get an outfit in my head I have to pursue it!

As luck would have it, I was browsing the Marks & Spencer outlet in the Lowry shopping centre on my lunch break when I found this jumper for £10. I don’t usually like ribbed jumpers but the gold frill edge sold it to me. I think it compliments the frill detail on the trousers rather nicely. My super comfortable Marks & Spencer shoes bookend the blue to bring the outfit together. So thanks to a lucky lunch time find I’m mixing cobalt and mustard again! I added a neutral bag that I bought in France from Scottage (one of my favourite French shops) on sale for 15 euros, and some fun acrylic earrings that I bought while waiting for a train at Birmingham New Street! You know I never miss a shopping opportunity 😉

    You’re so clever at mixing colour Emma. I wouldn’t have thought about this pairing but it works really well. I’ve been pairing mine with Navy and Grey xx

      Thanks Laurie! I’ll have to try pairing mustard with navy and grey, it’s such a versatile colour isn’t it?

    This color combo looks so good on you! No wonder you love it. I love the gold detail on the sweater too, and the detail on the trousers. and what a cute bag, love it I think it works so well with this look and adds some fun pattern.

    Great combination. Cheerful. I never wore mustard much, but I’m beginning to appreciate the colour more and more.

    Cobalt blue is such a great color! I love how bold it is. It really pairs well with mustard yellow!

    This is a stunning look and color combo! I love to pair mustard yellow with black or tan. But I would love to try cobalt because I love that shade of blue! Thanks for the color inspiration.
