Great color by Burberry
Growing up I quickly learned you were either a mustard girl, or mayonnaise girl. I always preferred mustard to mayo.

Today I am not referring to the condiment. I am referring to the color mustard.

mustard and black, simple
It is a color that can’t be warn by everyone if it is close to the face, but it is a color that I personally love to wear.

Mustard can be worn with so many other colors. It is a very versatile color, and a perfect addition to any Fall wardrobe.

I started adding a touch of mustard to my own wardrobe last season, and found I wore it quite a bit.

mustard and navy
I love wearing it with navy, but it works equally as well with grays, and blacks.

Etro great colors for this Fall mustard and gray

Even if you can’t wear it close to your face you could wear it in a skirt or pant.

You could even use it as an accent in an accessory…….
Navy and white. and mustard
Often times we don’t consider using a color in our wardrobe because it does not look good with our skin tone, but by using it as an accessory we can add a fun new element to our wardrobes. 

Chic. mustard and navy and white
This is a good way to freshen up your wardrobe from season to season.

It is a good way to stay fresh, and current without breaking the bank.

As I looked around the web I found colors mixed with mustard that surprised me. Fun combinations that I might not have thought about wearing together…….

Be sure and look around at what Mother Nature puts with mustard. I think you will be pleasantly surprised……

Look in your closet and see what pieces you might have that you could add a little mustard to your Fall wardrobe.

I for one am going to enjoy wearing a little mustard  this Fall season!

Good Sunday morning to you Kathysue,

I am not and have never been a mustard girl.
It's the pastels and the vivid jewel colors for me.

Isn't it funny? We all get used to what we love, both in the colors in our homes and on our clothes.

But the vivid yellow-orange-reds of fall are glorious when the leaves change!

I'm not an orange or mustard girl! Sorry! I tried a handbag (inexpensive) a few years ago and never felt comfortable carrying it!!

I love mustard...one of my favorite colors to mix in with some of the colors you mentioned...navy, gray and cream. Good call.

I am not a mustard person, but I loved your possibilities. Good ideas! Can you explain your use of color (paint) swatches, please. How do you come up with them? I'd love to know. Thanks for all that you do do make us realize different possibilities.

I have always been a mustard girl too...I actually hate mayo...but I do have more neutral colors in my home than mustard tones...

Mustard...timeless...bright and yet
subtle. I would prefer to wear it with grey, navy but if you are brave
cobalt would be an eye catcher.
