Silk Scarves & Stags

Sunnies, Skirt & Stag Ring: Downtown Threads, Knit Sweater: Gifted, Scarf: Office Yankee Swap, Button up: Ralph Lauren, Bracelet: Chinatown, Gem Ring: Gifted, Tights: Sox Market, Boots: Italy, Jacket: UOHappy Belated New Year All!

I’ve been under the weather for the past few days so please forgive the lack of posting. One of my goals for the new year is to be braver bolder when it comes to adding color into my wardrobe and I thought this mustard colored skirt from Downtown Threads was the perfect way to start.

I usually avoid all shades of yellow and orange because of my skin tone and hair color but since it was a skirt, and wouldn’t be close to my face or hair, I decided to give it a whirl. To play down the warmer tones I paired my new mustard skirt with a neutral cable knit sweater and the beautiful silk scarf that I got at my office’s yankee swap.

For me the perfect finishing touch was the stag ring I bought as a Christmas gift to myself. It added the perfect touch of whimsy and I figured that if the mustard skirt looked hideous the massive antlers would distract people.

What fashion goals/resolutions did you sent for yourself in 2012?

  1. I’m dying to see your bag, looks fab!

    • It’s actually a jacket that’s leaning over the bench behind me not a bag. Though I wish I had a tribal print bag like that.

  2. This is lovely! As a fellow pale redhead, I know how hard yellow and orange shades are with our complexion. But I love the colors so much, I’m constantly on the hunt for good pieces. And this? A very good piece — well done!

  3. I recognize that skirt…I love this look. I am glad you are getting better!

  4. OMGosh I am so glad that you opted to branch out with this mustard skirt. It is gorgeous and you look gorgeous in it! Happy New Year Cait and best to you this year! Thanks for all your support in 2011 and I hope you feel better!

  5. The mustard skirt is bright and pretty. Between that and the ring, you did a great job wearing color with this outfit.

  6. This color totally works. I avoid putting that color near my face too. It makes me turn a strange shade of lime green.


  7. oh those rings are gorgeous, especially the deer head.and the mustard skirt is killing me. Gorgeous outfit all together;

  8. That mustard skirt is so lovely!!

  9. I *love* mustard yellow and it totally doesn’t look hideous, and that stag ring is awesome.

  10. I lust that ring!! I love how you style the mustard skirt…I am always at a loss for what to bear mine with.
    For 2012 I plan to try to class up my otufits…less trendy funk!
