Zara Mustard co-ord with turquoise accessories

I seem to be drawn to deep yellow tones of mustard and ochre lately. My mustard and cobalt outfit went down a storm (thank you for all the kind comments!) and prompted Jacqui of Mummabstylish to “steal” my style! Great job Jacqui!

When I saw this mustard co-ord in the Zara sale I immediately added the skirt to my basket, but I hesitated over the top. The crop style put me off because I’m not one to bare my midriff. So I ordered just the skirt (and a couple of other things). But I couldn’t stop thinking about the matching top. On the website it didn’t look all that short, in fact the two together looked like a dress. So I caved and ordered it a few days later, and I’m so glad I did!

I pondered over what colour to pair this gorgeous deep yellow with: I toyed with burgundy, purple and deep green. But in the end I opted to team the mustard co-ord with turquoise accessories.

The stretchy material hangs beautifully and feels lovely to wear. The top is the perfect length to make the two pieces look like a dress, but it doesn’t gape and expose any flesh when I move. I pondered over what colour to pair this gorgeous deep yellow with: I toyed with burgundy, purple and deep green. But in the end I opted to team the mustard co-ord with turquoise accessories. It meant I could dig out these old but previously unworn Biba sandals and a vintage bag that I bought on eBay.

I love the draping on the side of the skirt and the full sleeves of the top. And of course, you don’t have to wear them together. I plan on styling the skirt more casually with a white T-shirt and trainers. I’ll also experiment pairing the top with a skirt in a contrasting colour.

As I love turquoise so much I had no shortage of jewellery options, but my new ring from Ottoman Hands complimented this outfit perfectly. I bought it in the sale and sadly it’s now sold out but they have lots of other gorgeous rings to tempt all you jewellery-lovers out there!

Do you own any co-ord sets? I love them and think they may be replacing my jumpsuit obsession!

    This is definitely the “in” color this fall. I saw it EVERYWHERE when I was last shopping. So pretty.

    That dress and the colour combo are simply stunning! Will be pinning to my fab blogger outfits board.

    Thanks so much for the mention, and wow another outfit to think about copying! I love the idea of co-ords, because they look like dresses but can be mixed in so many other ways. thanks for hosting too Emma. Jacqui Mummabstylish

    Wow. Simply fantastic on you Emma! I love mustard with red hair too and if you hadn’t mentioned that this was a set, I would have thought it was a dress! It looks great and I love the drape of the skirt. Like you mentioned mustard looks good with so many other rich Fall shades. Love the blue and those platforms are sexy and fun!
    Have a great week!

      Thanks so much Jess! I think this set is my favourite purchase from the end of Summer sales because I love the colour and it feels great to wear. I’m so glad I ordered the top because I’d have been kicking myself if I’d missed out!

    This is a stunning colour on you, Emma.

    That dress reminds me of something out of the 70s! I love the drape, the color and the long sleeves. You paired it with the bright accessories and I love it!

    Oh what a pretty color combination! That dress is beautiful on you!

    I had the same with my cropped top. I saw it with my red skirt and doubted but it stayed in my head. So had to buy it! I love draped skirts and dresses! And what a beautiful necklace! Why didn t we see those sandals before? They are gorgeous!

      Thanks Nancy1 It’s good to try something different sometimes isn’t it? I honestly don’t know why I haven’t worn the sandals before – I’ve had them several years. They’re actually a lot more comfortable than they look!

    This colour combination looks absolutely gorgeous! Love it!

    You look absolutely gorgeous in this get-up, Emma! I’m a huge fan of yellows and mustards so I love this ensemble. I’d never have thought to add pale blue but it really works. Those shoes are KILLER!! GORGEOUS!!

    Oh wow, what a fab dress on you dear! Love the elegance of the dress, and lively and chic color. So perfect for fall!

    Mustard/yellow seems to be a hot color this fall and I really love how the turq accessories pop out against it. I need to try this color combo!

    It seriously does not look like a co-ord, but more like a dress! Absolutely love it! 😀
    I also love how you have paired to co-ord with the shoes?. I would never dare to choose colors that seem so different, but the result is so cool! 😀

    I didn’t even realize it was a top/skirt combo, it looks so seamless together and I love everything, EVERYTHING about this outfit. Going to check our Canadian Zara to see if I can order it. Lovely.

    Wow I’m glad you ordered because I thought it was a dress too and not a 2 piece outfit. Sometimes it’S the best you can do, if you ponder and still think of it and come back and it’S still there, it’S meant to be. The pairing with the aqua seems like the perfect wedding ceremony. Love it!
