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?

What’s a sweater?

JCPenney brooch ; leopard print scarf via eBay, $8 ; yellow cardigan, swapped from Meredith (similar); thrifted skirt, $3; Fitzwell flats, $76

I swapped this sweater from Meredith a while ago but L.A. doesn’t know what sweaters are so by the end of the day, it was drenched in sweat. (Probably from my awesome ping pong skills.) Srsly, so cute! For the color combo, I was inspired by this look from Zara. I figured I’ll never wear leopard print shorts (Never say never?) so I subbed it for my scarf instead.

And if your scarf is missing something, add a brooch! or a flower!
