Breakin' the Rules

Link up with Lauren for High Five for Friday!

As we all know by now, I love my colorful denim pants. I professed my love for my red pants a few posts ago (read about it here). I knew I had to hit up the black friday sales in search of a new pair of colorful denim pants after I fell in love with the red pair. My Mom and I braved the record crowds of shoppers to get a good deal. I was originally looking for royal blue to wear for UK (university of Kentucky) festivities. I didn't find any royal blue but I did find the perfect pair of yellow (or Gold as the company claims) at Belk for 19 bucks. The only problem is, I felt like I was running out of time to wear the yellow-ish  color because I had it classified as an "autumn" color. I couldn't resist a good sale though, so I bought them.

BUT.... I decided this week, WHATEVER. I'm making my own rules! So, not only am I extending the wear of mustard/yellow/gold through the winter months, but I also wore these pants to a Christmas party recently, ain't scared. PLUS, I don't know about you, but as much as I love my red, grey, black, and cream, I need some color during the winter!

I put together three of my favorite "mustard" looks on Polyvore (love this site!).

The first was the look I've been sporting around, my favorite little yellow/mustard ensemble.



I didn't get a mustard sweater, but I think they are great! They look good with blue denim. (and I love scarves just as much as my colorful denim)



I'm loving this look too. Chevron is great, I'm still looking for the perfect Chevron top to buy. As you can see, mustard goes good with several colors, but I like it the best with blue. (I also love the addition of a cute little skinny belt)


My favorite look of the three


I'm in love with this great bubble necklace too. I've worn it with just about every color in the rainbow

    1. Yes you do need one stat! I love my blue button up, what does blue NOT go with? Also, J. CREW factory is the best store ever. Everything is so affordable. I don't own anything from the regular J. Crew store.
