Mustard, Black, and White by Kristine

First of all, a Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there!!! Have you called your mom yet? :)Mustard is quite possibly my favorite color right now. Something about it – and I’m not sure what it is – goes with neutrals so, so well.  I love how this cardigan looked on top of my black and white polka dotted top. I’m always very conscious of what colors I choose to pair with black and white.

And another thing – I kept this in my closet back home while I was adventuring in Japan. When I came back, it was like I had discovered a new treasure! Lesson learned: Time away really does make the heart grow fonder, even with clothes. Who knew?

Classic Chambray and Black

leopard print scarf via ebay, $8; thrifted Gap chambray shirt, $3; Forever 21 pleated skirt; Fitzwell flats, $76

Was inspired by another pin for this outfit. Loved the casual effortlessness of the chambray with the black pleats.

Also, I was experimenting with how to tie my scarf in the first pic. Not sure if I like it yet… Anyone know what that knot is called? Just saw it floating around Pinterest and thought I’d give it a go!

Hang loose…in flats

This outfit goes against my rules of not tucking and belting. It was so hard to resist but not really because it’s also really comfortable to let everything hang loose.

I’ve decided on a flats policy. It’s not because of anything remotely amazing like Kyla’s philosophy… My calves have just been so sore lately because I’ve been wearing heels a lot and I sit all day – it only makes sense. So….this is officially flats day #1. I can tell this is going to get old fast. I only have like three pairs of flats.
