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!
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!
