Usually the color yellow makes me feel nauseous, but give me a shot of deep mustard and it’s as if yellow has been my BFF the whole time. I think I started going gaga for mustard yellow ever since I spotted Kirsten Dunst in her mustard over the knee socks a few years ago. Too freaking cool. There is just something so retro about mustard yellow. I don’t know what it is, but it reminds me of the 70’s. The seventies totally rocked. As if the mustard yellow wasn’t enough, I just had to add an extra blast of color with my red Melie Bianco purse decorated with a vintage silk scarf I found lying around. Oh, yes, the jeans. And the holes. Let’s just say these are really old and yes I have worn them A LOT. The holes definitely make the jeans.
And Happy Veterans Day! May we all look forward to peace and prosperity all over the world.

Stripes are by far one of my favorite patterns to wear because they go with just about anything. This striped top stood out to me while vintage shopping one day because its lines were big and bold, which was exactly what I was looking for. And it was silk, and you know how much I love silk. Sorry for the picture overload . . . it was hard for me to narrow them down because there were too many shots that I thought captured my mood perfectly. I felt so good wearing this outfit and I think it shows! I will be wearing stripes all season every season, you can be sure about that! And I’m getting back into hats and head wear again. I dug this bowler hat out of the back of my closet and felt that it really added personality to everything in my closet. So on it went! I have a chic black turban on its way to me, and I can’t wait to give it a go once it arrives in the post!

I was in the process of cleaning out my laptop today since I will be receiving my new one soon. While doing so I came across some pictures saved in my inspiration folder. They happened to mesh well together, expressing everything catching my eye this season.
