Mustard Seed

There once was a time when I wouldn't be caught dead wearing colour, let alone mustard yellow and blue together. In fact this get-up brings back some faded memories. It reminded me of kindergarten and the primary colour paintings that a lot of us made before nap time. I can almost smell the non-toxic paint (or wait…was it non-toxic back then?) and see my 4-year old self with an over-sized paint brush, three pots of paint (red, yellow and blue) making a horrible mess of things, while at the same time thinking 3 lines of dripping paint on construction paper were a masterpiece.  Let's be honest, I would still have fun painting with an over-sized brush, three pots of paint and construction paper. And yes, I would still think it’s a masterpiece. Old habits die hard...



What I am wearing:
Cardi: Atmosphere (UK) - Gifted
Top: RW & Co.
Jeggings: Garage
Shoes: Nine West (Model:Flax)
Necklace: The Bay (this necklace came with a big stone which I took off)
Bangle: I got it from my Grandma :) 

Do any of your outfits make you nostalgic?

  6. You look so lovely in these colors. I need that necklace. I never seem to own the right accessories and am always forgetting to get myself more. And those shoes - I want. I need something brown, versatile, and chic like that in my life. I currently have nothing that fits that bill. :(

  14. I always say look for sales when it comes to shoes...and invest in leather....I find when I skimp out and wear synthetics, they may my feet hurt, and cause blisters.
