I’m not sure how it happened, but somehow mustard yellow became a staple of my wardrobe. I know I’m not the only blogger who has a weakness for it, so I get zero points for uniqueness, and I’m not sure if my complexion is as fond of it as I am but there it is: the heart wants what it wants. (Semi-related aside: has anyone had their seasonal colour analysis done? Recommend it or nah?) This sunny hue just makes me so happy. And when it snows — yes, SNOWS — in early October, I need all the happy I can get. All the pumpkin spice lattes in the world can’t fix those blues.
The cropped length of this jacket is a bit awkward on me (I have a long torso), so I decided to play with proportions but adding my long-ish Joe Fresh sleeveless sweater to balance it out. No joke, this sweater is one of my all-time favourite pieces — I really wish I’d known it would become so beloved at the time I bought it, because I definitely would have bought a back-up. It will probably fall apart long before I’m ready to part with it. It goes with everything and it’s the perfect layering piece no matter the season. Basically, it s unicorn in sweater form.
Moving on, the one nice thing about winter is the opportunity to bring out my fave moto boots — these Frye lookalikes which are (a) badass, and (b) basically indestructible (and warm). It almost makes up for the snow. Almost. Bah, who am I kidding? It doesn’t, not even close.
