Mustard & Eggplant Kind of Day!Monday, August 20, 2012
Hi friends! How was your weekend? Mine started a little crazy but ended pretty well. Since most Sundays I don't cook, we decided to go out for dinner.
I had bought this mustard color skirt and was waiting to wear it once the fall kicked in, but I just couldn't wait. I decided it was a great day to wear it. I dressed it up with this sheer top which I already had and just wore my miraclesuit (shapewear) underneath. I was going to wear my booties but when I was putting my accessories together I came across these earrings which are gold with black, purple and sort of a mustard color. I then remembered about my eggplant Mary Jane wedges which I had put aside.
I knew that by putting these colors together I was going to end up with a great ensemble! I wore a necklace which I had made a few years ago inspired by one I saw from Urban Outfitters. I kept it simple with a gold cuff and my usual gold watch.
Since we were going to do a few things afterwards, I used my Amanda bag instead of a clutch because I needed to carry a few things for my son. I wore a sash from a dress as a belt, tied into a bow.
I did my hair in an updo and swooped my bangs to the side. A great way to show off the earrings!

I kept my makeup simple with a nude lip. I'm wearing Myth by MAC.
I hope you like this color combo, and don't be afraid to mix and match! XO
