I have been hunting for a mustard skirt for AGES and finally found one in February for $8!  I couldn’t possibly choose just one pin to copy, so I copied as many mustard skirt styles as I could before my photographer begged for mustard mercy.

This is the pin that started  my mustard skirt obsession! I inadvertently pinned it a few times!  What a miracle that my mustard skirt also has pockets!  Striped tee $3.15.

Short sleeve stripes, long sleeve stripes - they all look great with mustard!

Hers looks like an ice cream truck and mine is an RV for realz so I think we tied.  Lace top gifted but thrifted, Anthro suede ankle boots gifted but thrifted, mint belt $2.80 and gifted necklace.

OF COURSE chambray looks brilliant with mustard!  Fan earrings from Plato's Closet.

My girl will always be my baby!  She's the best accessory, though the plain grey tee (Icebreaker, from my closet) looked awesome on its own!  Leather sandals $11 and belt B.T.

The best for last!  The vintage floral sweater from Goodwill was actually pretty cool but the hat, thrifted for a costume, is... incongruous.  Sperry's patent loafers $9.80, tights from my closet and black coat B.T.
The best for last! I’m *such* a model.  The vintage floral sweater from Goodwill was actually pretty cool with the mustard skirt but the hat, thrifted for a costume, is… ridiculous incongruous. Sperry’s patent loafers $9.80, tights from my closet and black coat B.T.

So there are 8 styles for an $8 skirt and I didn’t even get to replicate all the pins I found!  The moral of the story: you need a mustard skirt, so if you find one thrifted, snatch it up and start playing dress up!

    What a perfect thrift score! Mustard skirts are awesome! Not speaking from experience yet – I’m still searching – I just know they must be since basically anything mustard is awesome! U0001f609 Hmmm…do you think we’ll still be saying that in 10 years?! I U0001f49b all the looks, but my favourites are the cream lace top and the grey t-shirt. And the fur hat. How could I forget that one?! U0001f609
