Two Ways To Wear a Mustard Cardigan: With Green and Orange

This mustard cardigan was an awesome opshop find and just $2! It's a great way to add more colour to a winter outfit. I decided to be really colourful when I wore it recently and paired it with some other bright colours: green and orange.

What I wore:

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TeeCotton On "The One" fitted v tee in Cole stripe white moonlight
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I really like green with yellow, and it's not the first time I've worn these green skinny jeans with yellow. I loved the bright combination, nice and cheerful for a wet day. It started raining on me as I took these pics!

Thankfully we didn't get too wet at school pick up and drop off, and the rest of the day I was working from home so I was cosy and dry. Jeans and a tee is a perfect work from home outfit, and this cardigan was a much dressier alternative for keeping warm than my daggy old bathrobe when I had a zoom call 😂

With the turquoise tassel necklace adding a little more colour too I went with a neutral bag, this Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag is a classic that goes with so much.

Why I wore it:

This was inspired by an outfit I saw on Instagram on theshoestringshopper. As soon as I saw her orange and yellow outfit I wanted to try it myself with this orange tee and my mustard yellow cardigan. She was inspired by someone else to try it too, it's good seeing how inspiration spreads on Instagram!

I really liked this combo! It was something very different for me and I did feel very visible for school pickup and drop off and sitting on the sidelines of the gym as my son returned to his regular sports sessions. Feels like life is getting so busy now that things are reopening, but it's good to return to regular routines.

Despite a busy evening, we still had plenty of time for a browse in Kmart after dropping my eldest son off at school. No luck getting more pantry containers I'd hoped for, the stock shortage is painfully clear in many aisles. My little one did help me pick out some more Little People, Big Dreams books for our collection though! Kmart has them for $8 each, half the price of everywhere else I've seen them.

Stuck with the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag to balance out the brights, as well as my grey skinny jeans as black felt a bit too harsh.


Last worn: mustard cardigan (above), marigold tee, tortoiseshell necklace, grey skinny jeans, Converse (above), Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag (above). 

Other ways to wear: mustard cardigan and chambray skirt, marigold tee over a dress, grey skinny jeans and leopard print, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and maxi dress

Perfect for pregnancy: Converse in third trimester


How You Can Wear It:

Mustard is a very versatile shade of yellow! You can use a mustard cardigan to bring some colour to darker or neutral winter layers. It works equally well paired with other bright things in your outfit too like the green skinny jeans or the orange tee.

  3. What a fantastic buy, Mica! I am loving mustard at the moment and this cardi looks great with both outfits. I like both colour combos, but the second one is great because it's a new colour combo that I haven't tried before either! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I'm still getting over a cold, so I plan to rest up this weekend! ;) XXX

  4. I really like the color combo in the second outfit as well - and yes, things reopening make you realize how busy your life was before lockdown.

  6. I wish I hadn't gotten rid of my short mustard cardigan but I really didn't like how it looked on me. So now I have my long kimono which I can try with similar outfits!

  13. I've been looking for mustard cardigans for a while. Though, I probably won't be buying that many clothes now that I'm not going out as much. I love that the mustard yellow cardigan goes well with green and different colors! Pretty cool that you've taken advantage of Kmart! Ours are closed in LA :(.

  29. Head over heels for the matching of all these magical bright colours! :) The pairing of mustard, orange and green is so fun and you style these looks so dreamily. Pops of vibrant colours are always so uplifting and positive to see too! The green jeans work perfectly with the mustard and I adore the orange and yellow tones! I agree it's good to return to regular routines once more! Wishing you the happiest week ahead :)

  37. You make me want a yellow cardi! Both outfits are so popping! I just love how you went all out with the color-blocking and I'm so inspired to try to match bold colors like you do here. You look so very bright and beautiful in both outfits! Also, I'm in love with your camera bag. It's such a nice size and oh so chic! Your grey skinnies are perfect and I really need to find myself a marigold tee! Such a sunny tone :O xoxo
