It all started with the shoe...

 Being a shoeaholic I often begin styling my outfits with a pair of shoes. It helps inspire what colours to combine as well as the general shape/line of my look. That is exactly what I did with my look below. I fell in love with these brown court shoes with mustard suede covering the toe. I thought they would be the perfect addition to my winter wardrobe. I'm a sucker for brown shoes and I loved the fact that they had a  splash of mustard. This enabled me to introduce a new colour into my wardrobe as I  previously hadn't owned anything in mustard. Online I have seen mustard saturating many designer winter collections so I was excited to play around with this rich colour.

I went shopping and found this chic mustard long sleeve dress with a silhouette that I would not usually wear. For some reason I was drawn to it. I chose to tie in my brown shoes with a vintage belt and bag. I love the combination of brown and mustard. I accessorised with a mustard and gold chain necklace and studded mustard cuff.

I think mustard is the perfect colour to help brighten up your winter wardrobe. I have styled some 'mustard' inspired winter looks below for you to reference.

Have a wonderful week!


  1. Great outfit!! I love the sleek look. The shoes are indeed amazing! And I couldn't help but smile when I looked at your bag- so jelly! :) I was very into mustard during winter. I liked to pair it with leopard print for a kind of tribal look!
