My Fave Color This Fall - In & Out of the Office

Now that fall is just around the corner and Starbucks has officially launched the infamous pumpkin spice latte, I am having daydreams about suede boots, leather jackets, cozy sweaters, and a beautiful shade of jewel toned yellow. My favorite fall color several years running has been olive green, and don't worry, I am not letting that relationship die. I'm just dedicating a little more of my attention this season to my new love: mustard.

Mustard yellow is so versatile and looks beautiful on a variety of skins tones and hair colors. While bright pastel yellow is difficult for most to pull off (believe me, I have tried and failed), this deeper shade with caramel undertones is much more user friendly. This shade can really bring out the warmth in your skin, which is great now that summer pool days are all but gone until next year.

When used as the focal point in your outfit, mustard yellow is a bit unexpected and interesting. The color makes a real statement, but can still be office appropriate. Each and every time I wear these pants to work, I never fail to get compliments! For today's post, I paired them with a classic black blazer, high neck blouse, and black pumps. Tip: if you'll be rocking this color at the office, keep the rest of your outfit neutral, so it's chic but doesn't draw too much attention. This mustard blazer would look so cute over a simple black dress for the office!

Outside of the office, I love to play with different colors and textures. This color screams fall so while it's still warm out, you can feel fall-festive in a lightweight dress paired with booties. Another option? I think the combo of mustard yellow and turquoise is so beautiful. Try a mustard sweater with turquoise jewelry and you have a dashing fall outfit on your hands! Because of the contrast, mustard also pairs well with any shade of denim. I love a good pair of jeans, so I'm a sucker for anything I can throw on with some Levi's and go. 

Below, I linked several mustard colored items I’ve been longing for lately (not gonna lie - may have ordered a couple while writing this post, oops). What's your favorite color for the upcoming season? Or are you still mourning the last few days of summer? If you need me, I'll be wandering the fall decor isle in my local Hobby Lobby. Happy almost fall, and have a lovely day!
