Prepster in Mustard and Grey

Now this is more like it. Even though I'm not much of a preppy-style person, I do like the vibe once in a while. I've never really locked into one particular style anyway. 
I had many admirers of the mustard yellow (especially with my shoes and sweater matching).

  • Sweater - Steilmann, consignment; last worn here with pleated leather
  • Shirt - LL Bean, consignment; last seen here in August with rainy florals
  • Skirt - vintage 80s, Bianca, thrifted; purchased here on the weekend for $5.00
  • Shoes - Grotesque; first worn here in July with a craptastic dress

Despite swearing up and down the last time I wore this shirt, here it is in my wardrobe again. But I really am still grooving on the menswear vibe of doing a button-down under a sweater. Classy!
I freakin' loved this skirt - from the thigh-high slit to the thick wool, to the perfect below-the-knee length, it's an A+.

The stuff:
I know, awesome shoes, right? I was still wearing my month-old self-pedicure this morning, so I quickly removed it, but I couldn't be bothered to redo my toes. Are we into the No-Toe Season yet? I always enjoy not doing pedicures (and not shaving my legs/pits as much, heh heh) when the weather turns cooler. I saw a few women in tights today, but it's still summer, dammit! I'm keeping my bare legs while I can.

Brassy bling:
That's my Grandma's necklace - I like how it goes with the grey and mustard.

  • Necklace - Anne Klein, vintage 80s, Grandma J's
  • Cuff - Jezebel Charms, gift from L
  • Earrings - Aldo Accessories

Tomorrow looks like it might be cool again - I actually wore a leather jacket today (my yellow one).


  1. I love the entire ensemble. I think I love it when you go matchy.

    Grey and mustard looks so much better to me than mustard with black. That goes with a whole lot of other colors, too. Caramel is another example, it just looks so much richer to me paired with grey than the same clothing paired with black.

  2. I really like the mustard and grey together! :) it's a lovely skirt also.

    You pull off any style you try, it's always wonderful to see :)

  3. Wow, your shoes are Grotesque! - coolest name ever for a pair of shoes. Everything you wear with them should be craptastic. But yes, A+ on the skirt. You prep-up well.

  4. I really like this color combination too, You look so smart and like you have got all your sh*t in one bag. Gorgeous cuff, yay for L. xox

  5. Ohhhh yes - the colours and the fit of this outfit are outstanding.
    I say to myself that I don't stick with any particular style, but when I log back and look at pictures I see I do.
