Wardrobe Wednesday - Mustard

Hi all! I bought some mustard colored tights a few weeks back from Target and have been wanting to wear them ever since. My go to tight color is black, so I have been in a desperate need to switch things up a bit. Starting with the tights I pieced the rest of this outfit together. I kept the look simple because the tights are so bold.



I wore this look out on Sunday to our friends show at a local bar. The tights were quite the conversation starter. I had originally taken outfit photos the same day but hated how they came out, so yesterday I took my photos out in public for the first time - EVER. *gasp!



Alright, yes I was out in public, but I definitely took the photos behind a shed at our local park so the basketball players wouldn't see me. Haha! Do you ever get comfortable taking your own outfit photos? I was so sick of taking photos indoors.



Outfit Details: Dress - thrifted | Belt - thrifted | Tights & Shoes - Target | Bag - Silk Market, Beijing.

I can't believe Japan is only 4 days away!! I am headed home in the morning to get everything in order for my trip. I need to run through my closet tonight and pick out outfits. How do you prepare for a trip?

  3. Those are adorable! I still haven't ventured out into the world of colored tights, but when I do, I'm thinking teal....

    1. Haha. When I am back at home at my moms I take pictures in the backyard and don't care so much if people look. I haven't ventured to the front yard yet though. Thank you so much :]

  7. I absolutely love this outfit! Those tights rock my world and I love that you paired them with a black and white polka dot dress. I am always freaked out to do black and yellow together for fear of looking like a bumble bee (most of my black and white dresses are striped which doesn't help) but seriously, this looks incredible and those shoes are phenominal-I need them in my life.

    1. Thank you! I definitely thought about it maybe being too bumble bee, but I think the polka dots help break it up a bit. Haha, yeah stripes might do that, but hey, if it looks good on a bee...why not try it? The shoes are still on sale at target! They are so comfy and help dress up an outfit. I can't wear heels so it is a good compromise.

  12. LOVE the yellow tights - and they look extra cute with that polka dot dress :) I STILL feel uncomfortable taking outfit pics in public - but I do it. The hubs (my photographer) always wants to take them in crowded areas because he thinks they will look cooler - but I refuse and insist on taking them on the sidewalk :)

    1. Thank you so much! Aw, haha. I wish I could get my boyfriend to take my pictures for me more often. I think I would feel less strange out in public. Setting up a tripod is just too weird.

  13. When I took outfit photos for your guest post the other day a waiter from the restaurant across the street stood outside and watched me for like 30 minutes lol. I hate taking outfit photos bc I have to wait until there's no cars passing haha.

    1. Ahaha. Oh dear! It is so awkward. I would have done the same thing.

      Delete
  14. Haha I feel the same way.. I am actually very very very camera shy, and taking pictures outside is very hard- so I have spotted this wall where there's no one around, so I take my "outside" pics there...
    I adore your mustard tights! Such a gorgeous accent piece!
    Good luck!

  15. Lovely outfit...the yellow tights look amazing! When preparing for a trip I get incredibly excited and write a list of things I need probably a week in advance, I always pack the night before but I still leave feeling like I've forgotten something important...no matter how much I've planned!

      I just made a list today...I hope I don't forget anything. The most important things though is my passport and camera and its charger. Other than that I will go with the flow, haha.

    1. Aw, thank you so much! I didn't want to get to crazy with color so I opted for the black dress. Haha, I am glad. I nervously ran from the car to hide behind the shed and kept looking back to see if anyone was coming. Haha.

  28. My go to color is black as well and I have such a hard time adding color into my wardrobe. I absolutely love the bright mustard colored tights, I've seen the tights at Target but they are always too short for me :( I love your bag as well. I hope you have a great time in Japan and make sure and take lots of pictures!

    1. Color scares me a bit. I am sorry they are too short for you, that is the worst. I hate buying a pair of tights and finding out that although they say they will fit your body they don't :-/ Thank you so much!!! I will take tons of photos :]
