Mustard + Leopard
UPDATED: FALL 2017
Today I’m excited to share this fall outfit with you! Mustard yellow is such a great color for fall, and pairing it with leopard takes it up a serious notch or two.
I wore this mustard boyfriend sweater and a white tee with a leopard infinity scarf that I found at Francesca’s a few years back. I love the mix of warm tones. Here are some other options for leopard scarves.
Bootcut jeans are not as popular as skinnies, but they’re fun for a change. As of August 2017, my favorite bootcut jeans are these 7 For All Mankind Kimmie bootcut. They’re 33″ and I did not have to hem them (SCORE!) but if you’re taller (I’m 5’5″) then this pair is 36″ long.
Bootcut jeans demand boots, and the higher the heel, the better. Just make sure your jeans are the right length for your boots. They should almost graze the ground, but not quite.
The boots are Nine West. I swear, these might be 10 years old. The stacked heel is back in style this year, so once again, I’m so glad that I never got rid of these! Here’s a similar pair that I have now (2017) that also look great with bootcut jeans.
The brown belt (also old – a Gap purchase many moons ago) is perfect for pulling the scarf and the boots together.
I chose gold jewelry in keeping with the warm tones of the outfit, but silver would work just as well.
I carried a small brown clutch. I like the various shades of brown in this outfit.
And here’s a closeup of the jeans. I just love the wash on these. They have faded slightly over time, but that only makes them better. This is why I invest in premium denim. They just get better with age.
So that’s my modern take on the bootcut jeans. This outfit would be just as cute with skinny jeans and ankle boots or riding boots. I’ve worn it that way in the past, but this is fun for a change.
