MUSTARD YELLOW + MADEWELL TOTE

May 16, 2017

I just discovered my new favorite color for this Spring and Summer…mustard yellow! I have never been one to wear yellow–I always stick with neutral colors. But recently, I have been seeing this color pop up all over my Instagram feed, so I decided to try on this yellow top, and I’m so happy that I did! If you’re not in the best mood, throw it on, and I promise, it will make you happier instantly 🙂 I wore this to dinner with a friend this past weekend, and felt so cute and cheery in it!

This buttoned top is from Forever 21 and less than $13. Yup, you heard that correctly! Seriously, it’s what I love about Forever 21. They have some of the cutest pieces, for so dang cheap! You can wear it off-the-shoulder, or as a normal top (how I’m wearing it). It also comes in a few different colors, if you aren’t trying to stand out in a crowd hehe. This top is great for Summer, and can be paired with your favorite jeans, or cut-off shorts. This mustard-yellow color goes great with any type of brown/cognac accessories (such as my tote). Highly recommend you wearing those two colors together!

Let me talk about the brand new tote that I just bought and am obsessed with! I normally wear my black Rebecca Minkoff satchel everywhere, but I was thinking I needed a different color bag that can be worn with anything, anywhere. I thought this cognac Madewell tote was perfect. Shout out to one of my favorite bloggers, Olivia (livvyland.com), for posting this bag all over her Instagram feed. It totally sold me 🙂 It’s super roomy, yet super light, and can be worn as a satchel, or just on the shoulder. The strap is also removable, so you can actually just carry the bag too, if you prefer it that way. It’s on sale right now for $130 at Nordstrom, and comes in black as well, so grab it while you can! Purses are always an item that I will splurge for. I tend to use my purses for years, so I never mind spending a little extra on them.

(What am I even doing here haha?)

Madewell is a brand that I have just recently become obsessed with! I can’t afford most of their clothing, but if I could, I would probably buy out their entire store (same with Free People). Their clothing is very casual and effortless. The main items they sell are jeans, casual tops, jackets, purses, and shoes. Basically their clothes make you look effortlessly-adorable, but it definitely comes at a price 😉 Check them out if you have never heard of them, they are definitely becoming quite a popular brand. They have retail stores, an online store, and you can also find them in Nordstrom.

We made it through the toughest day of the week, Monday! It’s all about the little wins in life haha. On a personal note, I’m starting my new position at work tomorrow, which I’m very excited about. This will be my third position in the almost two years I’ve worked there! My first job was in email operations, sending out emails to our subscribers, which involved lots of HTML. My second position, which I’ve been doing the past year, involves ad trafficking. And my new position, will be very similar already to what I’m already doing, still in the ad trafficking realm. So crazy to end up working in positions that you never thought you would end up in. But, I guess that’s how it works most of the time!

    Girl I freaking love mustard yellow! It’s crazy because I’ve been wearing it a lot lately too 🙂 My fiancee gets sooo excited when I wear it. It’s his favorite. Love how you styled it here and I especially love those gorgeous mules!
