Mustard Greens

I have a couple people to thank for helping me with this outfit.

First is Wendy of Wendy’s Lookbook, who recently posted this yellow top/green bottom outfit. The weather was hideously cold this day, so my freakishly warm cashmere cardigan was the only thing I could think about wearing. I probably would have worn plain ol’ blue jeans, but I had just seen Wendy’s outfit the day before so I busted out the green. I do love an unexpected color combo.

The second person to thank is Patricia, one of my readers who also makes jewelry and who sent me this blue and white beaded necklace. To keep from looking too First Ladyish in my lace and cardigan, I layered it over my spike necklace. I really like how it turned out!

Patricia sells other unique pieces in her Etsy shop, and for the rest of this month, she is offering 25% off any order just for Sarah’s Real Life readers. Find her shop here and use the code “REALLIFE1” for your discount!
