Striped Vest and Mustard Cardigan

This striped vest was begging to see the light of day again and so I had to oblige it. The stripes make pattern play so easy, but by pairing it with a subtle polka dot chambray the look doesn't become too loud. The mustard cardigan and statement necklace break up what would otherwise be a monochrome blue outfit. While I don't typically wear cardigans under another layer, I like the way this turned out! This necklace I got from Benevolent Jewels last year has been my go-to necklace recently. It's unfortunately no longer available, but I did link to some similar ones below. I also have my eye on this beauty!

  1. Mustard and blue look great together! The layers are perfect for this weather where its 30 degrees in the morning and in the 50's in the afternoon!

  15. I love this vest so much! It looks great with mustard. Mustard and navy were meant to be paired together, don't you think? (Obviously you do since you did ha)

  22. I agree, a bright and beautiful color addition can do a lot of lift for a otherwise plain outfit. Love it!

  24. I don't think I've ever seen a cardigan layered over a button up and under a vest before. Talk about a layered look! Mustard was a good choice. It pairs so nicely with navy.

  25. I like that you have multiple shades of blue paired with the mustard!

  27. I would reach for that beautiful necklace and versatile striped vest all the time, also. So cute. The one you want to add is a stunner also and what a great price!
