Welcome / Mustard & Chambray

Welcome to my new personal style/fashion blog!  
 
Hi! My name is Sara, and I'm a native Southern Californian, wife, mom of 3, and a corporate professional. I enjoy sharing daily outfits, style tips, sales finds, and overall fashion inspiration.
My style is ever-evolving, but I would largely classify it as feminine, classic, modest and yet contemporary. I love gorgeous floral prints, polka dots, stripes, lace, and those extra special details like scalloped hems, bows, whimsical prints, and pockets in skirts and dresses. I also love infusing beautiful color into my everyday wear; it's an easy way to liven things up!
 
I hope you will enjoy this journey with me -- truth be told, this is a new, scary/exciting venture into unknown waters -- but I am grateful for your support and thank you for joining me!
 
Now, onto the fun stuff:  my outfit details!

Mustard-yellow top - old (similar here, here, here, here)
Chambray-striped skirt w/ pockets - only $18! (here)
Tory Burch handbag/clutch - old (similar here)
Camel pumps - old (similar here)
Layered gold necklace - gift (similar here, here, here)
 
There's just something about a pretty, sunny yellow that screams Summer, don't you think? Funny thing, though: I used to despise wearing yellow; I never thought it was flattering on me -- too bright! But, over the years, it's really grown on me, and when I found this adorable top on the sales rack at Anthropologie, with its darling bow detailing, I knew I had to have it.
I'm pairing it here with my new favorite chambray skirt; yellow and chambray play off of each other so well. And remember those extra special details I mentioned? This skirt is the epitome of just that:  vertical stripes (very flattering); pleat detailing, side pockets (love!); functional buttons down the front; and an elastic waist band in the back for extra stretch and comfort. It's really lovely, and I was so happy to find it online for a mere $18! I love it and highly recommend it.
I kept the rest of the look simple by adding classic, cognac leather accessories and dainty, gold jewelry.
 
That's all I have for now!  Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
