current obsession: mustard yellow for any season

first, thank you to all the wonderful responses for past current obsessions!
(see here and here to view my obsession over pocket dresses and nerd glasses.)
because of the responses, i decided to make this a weekly feature.

[applaud, applaud, applaud]

today's current obsessions comes from my love for:
[mustard yellow]
it's one of those colors that is great for any time of the year really.
it's also a perfect color to transition from the bright, sunshine filled days of summer to cool, romantic fall evenings.

and maybe some fun accessories to go along with your summer-to-autumn outfit?

i also think mustard yellow compliments so many other colors, too.
i love it with sage green or even turquoise.

do you have a particular color you are obsessed with?
or maybe a color you run to when seasons change?
please share!
[happy Wednesday, friend!]


  1. I am obsessed with green, I don't know how it started but I LURVE it. I also love yellow and turquoise so I am lusting after the purse you have in this post. I love how yellow can transition into fall so well but still be nice and cheery.

  2. *gasp* mustard yellow is my all time favorite color!!! my mum thanks the heavens it looks good on me because even if it made me look like death, i would still wear it. it is simply the most beautiful color. that being said, i want every one of the beautiful items you posted, especially those darling flats and the stripped dress. *swoon* xo

  3. oh swoon. mustard yellow gives me happy feet. and i officially want that mustard scarf/wrapie thing. soooo fun and perfect for fall.
