Mustard + Mint

oxford- Target
skirt & belt- Forever 21
loafers- TJ Maxx
hat- Gap
jewelry- thrifted

I pinned this photo last week and fell in love with the navy and mustard color combination! I have worn it before, but didn't think about using a checked oxford shirt. Inspiration comes in the most obvious of places sometimes. Because I do not have a navy & white gingham blouse I went straight for this mint one. I added my navy hat at the last minute and like the result of the color story. 

Pattern is always difficult for me. I am much more of a solids gal, but have been trying to play more with patterns. My version of a print has usually been stripes. Seriously... they are abundant in my closet! However, just like I have made the goal to not purchase any new nail colors this year, I want to branch out of my comfort zone and try new things. It is scary, and exciting, and new. I think that is my main life goal right now: trying things that are scary. Jump. Go for it. Think like Nike and Just Do It.

Who knew that this post would get so philosophical?
