Mustard, Leaves and Ketchup

I'm a slew of condiments today! 
We have a mustard jacket, ketchup shoes and I wear the leaf skirt with relish (har har!).

  • Jacket - Le Chateau, consignment; purchased on the weekend here for $24.00 
  • Skirt - Darling; last seen here in January while crushing on Agent Carter
  • Shoes - Marc; last worn here in February with rainy poppies

I'm linking up to "Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style - get yourself there!

First wear of this jacket and I really liked it! It's got loads of stretch and the colour is so rich. I didn't want to go full autumnal with today's outfit, so I'm pleased with how the brights in the skirts help keep it from being Full Equestrian.
I also really like the stand-up collar.

The stuff:
I also adore red shoes. I have a bit of a thing with red shoes and boots. I am always looking for them. More!

Round bling:
I like wearing that spinner ring on my thumb.

  • Crystal ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop
  • Spinner ring - consignment
  • Earrings - thrifted

You know what else I like?
Shoes! Shoe Shine is this coming Friday! 

Be there, or be rectangular!


  1. Thant is a great jacket, and you are hilarious! I love red shoes too, but sadly at size 11 can't do red boots, darn clowns, they've ruined 'em!

  2. Compliments on your condiments, pfft. Seriously great jacket. And I have one pair of neglected red shoes. Why?
    Or be a pterodactyl? (Airplane movie)

  3. Sounds like the title of a new self-help book? you're such a good writer - and dresser too! Great look, love the red shoes, Thanks for linking up!

  4. That jacket is beautiful on you, I like how you've worn it with the colourful skirt and shoes :)

    Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog about my new pink blazer! I don't have anything similar to what you described, but it has got me thinking of other ways to wear it, so that you!

  5. You look fantastic in these mustardy-ketchupy outfit! Great idea to add bright red to muted tones to make it less Autumn-looking. I have one outfit in mind which is really very Autumn colors, I think I'll try this strategy too. The blazer is great and fits you wonderfully! I don't have any read shoes... yet! :) xxx

  6. The jacket looks superb, I love yellow and red together. And I am very envious of your success at finding jackets which fit well, it's something I seem to struggle with... xxx

  7. Now that's what I call a great skirt.
    Oh and I am a total fan of those earrings, every time you wear them I remember how much I like them.
    Yesterday I got a vintage necklace and earring set from m y 90+ great aunt. Automatically thought of you and your pieces.. I have to inspect it in daylight so I can try and find any markings.
