Mustard Melange

When I was putting this look together, I asked Eric if he thought I should wear a different color shoe, since the hem of the skirt is also red. He took a look and then said, “Nope. Ketchup and Mustard!” I might have used that as the title of this post, were it not for my lifelong vendetta against ketchup (too sweet!), but mustard and I, we get along just fine. I have been wanting to find some pieces in this color for quite a while, so I was so happy to find this sweater at a thrift store in Memphis. And then I found a heavier long-sleeved version, made by the same label, the very next day at a different thrift store. Mustard bonanza!

I found this beautiful silk skirt at the same store, and I fell in love with it. It’s so light and soft, and the best part is that it has a pocket! That is always a win!

Upon the suggestion of my sweet friend Moriah, I wore my new bugle bead necklace. I just made it a few weeks ago, and I love how it looks with the mustard.

I also wore this bead loom bracelet, which I finally finished and put a clasp on this weekend. Hurray!

To step behind the scenes, I have to tell you how fun and funny these photo shoots are. Eric is a great photographer, and he always cracks me up. It’s impossible not to smile at him when he smiles at me, and he sometimes asks me questions to elicit a facial expression or gesture. Genius. But sometimes, like last night when we shot these pictures, I am at a loss for expressions, and he gets something like this, which makes us both laugh. He is the sweetest. And the best!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Ours was chilly and rainy, and involved a lot of knitting, baking, and hibernating, but it should be clearing up soon!
