Hot Mustard (See Jane Wear)

There's nothing like blue skies and hot yellow to brighten your day.  Don't be deceived by the bright colors, though, it was freezing outside.  We're dead-smack in the middle of winter and I'm already tired of wearing long pants.  As an alternative, I wore shorts with tights and thigh high socks layered on top for extra warmth.  Who needs pants when you have layers?  As a side note:  I can't stop wearing these F21 booties (evidence: here + there); they're my first pair of footwear from there, and they've turned into my black shoe default.  I might need to change it up soon or my other shoes may get jealous.

                    UO sweater, J Crew tee, F21 shorts + shoes + high highs, Old Navy scarf, ChloĆ© bag, Ray Ban sunglasses

How was your weekend?

Aww, I love your tweed shorts and the mustard colored sweater so much! Such a great pop of color for your outfit. I've been a follower for a while, but I think this might be the first time I've ever left a comment. I'm planning to stop by more often!

Love the yellow! The thigh-high socks are such a great idea; I'm going to have to incorporate some into my wardrobe if I want to get through the rest of the winter!

First of all, I may or may not steal that handbag when you are sleeping. That's just a warning.

Second, I love the mustard color, so gorgeous with your blonde locks!

Great color on you. I love decorative sun in the middle of the winter. NYC is sooo cold this time of year.

Taylor said...

HOT HOT HOT like always!!!!! Love the tigh highs, Ive yet to wear mine, other than under jeans for warmth - but i agree - totally over pants!

Fashion Therapist said...

Short and tights are one of my favorite looks. I too am sick of this cold weather. Even though the sun is out it's so deceiving. It is the perfect weather though to stay in and catch up on DVR'd shows.

Lisa Fergus said...

you look beautiful! Great outfit!

You look great! I love the shorts, and that mustard color is super pretty.

Aaaaah! As soon as I saw that colour on you I got a warm fuzzy feeling inside. That is my fav colour and it loook sooo good on you! I love it paired with the grey shorts, so cute!

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

I would be totes over pants too! That color looks so fab on you....and there's that amazing bag again!

This is what people need to understand. Color should be used in the winter when it can pop against the white snow and blue skies.

TheChambrayCountess said...

Fun outfit! I love the mustard against the darker colors and I think I own those shorts, too!

The Vet Girl said...

I totally agree with christina. We should totally try to add some color to these greyish winter days!

Valerie said...

I'm already tired of winter too (and obviously our winter is nothing like yours). I the grey and mustard combination and those booties are so cute! I've never bought any shoes from Forever 21 either, but might have to check them out next time. Hope you had a great weekend.

Josie said...

I'm super over winter as well. It's just so cold and gray and yucky. But your pretty mustard-colored sweater brightens things right up! And I love how you've layered the shorts, tights, and over-the-knee socks... Too cute!

Cute layers and I love the yellow!! I took some pics in another pair of F21 shoes and have to weed through the photos before posting, but girl they are good shoes. I love your booties and the shorts, too. Kinda thinking about digging out the tweed now....find me in the garage under a pile of boxes.

ugh

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

I am feeling the same as Carrie....time to dig out my tweed. Thanks for the idea! and super cute sweater, if I was not yellow I could probably wear it. haha

shealennon said...

I agree, yellow is just what winter needs! Winter's getting pretty crazy here in KS so I think I need to bust out the yellow too!

Kate said...

Gah, you are the cutest! And I totally thought of you when I clicked on cupcakes & cashmere this morning... my bloglovin' was full of mustard, and it looks so gorgeous on you both! Love the socks/tights/shorts combo here, too! So cute!

Absolutely love this and i adore those sunglasses!

Anna Jane said...

Hi Bridget - my fiance got me the bag for Christmas, but it came in a Saks bag, so pretty sure he got it there!

MissCupcake - Yep, the sunglasses are RayBan and they're called the "skinny wayfarer" and I originally got them in 2009 on revolve. They're now on sale at Bluefly, though! here's the link: http://www.bluefly.com/Ray-Ban-brown-plastic-%27Wayfarer-Skinnies%27-sunglasses/cat20066/307867001/detail.fly?referer=ca_froogle&cm_mmc=ca_froogle-_-na-_-womens_sunglasses-_-307867001&PROMO=promo970009&mr:trackingCode=976A9E15-B9D7-DF11-B41F-0019B9C043EB&mr:referralID=NA

Laura * You Stir Me * said...

just found your blog and LOVE it! That is such a cute outfit and really makes me want to run out to F21 and pick up some tall socks and tights. I've seen this look recently and haven't found the courage to wear it yet - you've inspired me!
