Mustard Shoes

I managed to take some outfit photos in the morning on Monday! Okay, okay I cheated a little. I took these in the alley area behind my building because I didn't have time to walk down to the park.

Although I cheated, I actually really like these photos. I think the simple gray background and natural light help the colors of my clothing to stand out. Cobalt and mustard might be my favorite color combination for fall. I keep buying mustard colored items. I should probably stop.

Outfit: cardigan- Target; shirt- Old Navy; pants- Macy's; shoes- trade from Buffalo Exchange
Aren't these shoes awesome? They're a little hard to see under the wide-leg pants, but they are a mustard colored loafer with a wedge heel. I know I'm going to get a ton of wear out of them this fall and winter.

I found these wedges in very good condition at Buffalo Exchange and purchased them with store credit I had from trading in some clothes. If you have a Buffalo Exchange in your city I definitely recommend checking them out! You can bring in your new or gently used clothing, shoes and accessories to sell and then choose to receive a percent of the sale price in cash or a higher percentage in store credit. They can be pretty picky about what they take, but it's worth a shot! 

If you're in Boston I recommend the Davis Square location in Somerville over the Allston location. It has a better selection of sizes. I got the chambray shirt dress I wore in yesterday's post is from Buffalo Exchange too! 


  1. You look so cute! I love the mustard striped top and shoes, such a great color for fall.

  4. Those shoes are adorable. I love the fact that they're a mini-wedge; I adore mini-wedges. And I love that you keep buying mustard; that was totally me last fall.

    You look great!

  6. Those shoes are adorable! And this is my favorite color combination of all time :)

    I agree, I really like the simple background. It makes your outfit pop!

  7. I too am crazy about mustard yellow! I wore a pair of mustard yellow chinos from Lands End yesterday with red flats! This combo looks great on you. Comfortable and colorful. You look like youre ready for Fall!

  8. I love how these two colors look together! Cobalt is one of my favorite colors too but I don't actually own anything mustard. I need to change that!

  14. Cute blog! I love this color combination.

  15. These shoes!
    Eek, those are cute. They look so comfortable and I love the mustard color. I've had the same problem lately, I so want something mustard-colored, but it's not like I need any more clothes. :P
    I never really thought about this color combination, but I'm going to have to agree with you, the mustard yellow and the cobalt really look amazing together. I think this is one of my favorites of your outfits, the colors are fantastic together and you look lovely in your photos. (The gray wall is a great backdrop for this outfit!)

  16. Love those shoes! Such a cute look on you! you look so pretty! :)
