Style Collaboration: Mustard Cardigan Styled 2 Ways, 2 Bloggers

December 11, 2014

Today, I am happy to share with you my first style collaboration with my lovely blogging friend Amber. I have known Amber for almost half a year or more and she has been featured on the blog before (here). But months ago she got a good deal on a mustard colored cardigan from Target and when she started wearing it on the blog, I fell in love and couldn’t wait to get my hands on one myself.  Black Friday weekend rolled around and it became the perfect opportunity to buy it. At Target it was $19.99 and the sale on it was 40% off so I scored this for $11.99 and had a gift card that covered it and another item. This girl was happy let me tell you!

I can’t get over how versatile and nice the cardigan is for fall, winter and early spring weather. I will definitely get a lot of use out of this cardigan. In todays post I styled it over a striped black and white maxi dress, the weather that Sunday was very nice but windy, so the added cardigan was a life saver against the cold gusts of wind.

I have been in a pattern mixing mood lately, and since leopard is a neutral and goes with EVERYTHING I included my leopard print shoes with this dress and cardigan for a nice comfortable casual fit to church.

Outfit details- Cardigan (Target $19.99)//Maxi Dress: (Charlotte Russe, on clearance for $3.99)//Necklace:Designs By Stacy Lee // Flats: (via Plato’s Closet)//Purse: Michael Kors (wedding gift).

Now on to Amber’s look and how she styled hers in her own words and more about her blog and a link to this outfit.

About my blog: I blog about my personal style and affordable pieces. I love writing about fashion on a budget and how I put my outfits together.
About my outfit: This outfit was perfect for a casual weekend morning. This mustard cardigan is such a stylish color, and even makes a messy topknot look chic. Plus we are all loving leopard this season, right? So I’m carrying my favorite leopard purse again in this outfit.

You can find more on this outfit styled by Amber here.

    Two fab stylings! I adore mustard. I had a mustard sweater years ago, and wore it frequently. I need to get another one! T.

    Mustard is a hard color for me to wear with my skin tone, but I love the look of it against black and brown (which is coincidentally what you both wore it with here).

    Another Beautiful Thing

    I really like mustard for a cardi color, so different! I have a corduroy skirt in mustard and I love to wear a purple/eggplant colored sweater with it. I really like your maxi dress with it, you look great!

  • Amy Fashion Blog December 12, 2014 at 1:57 pm

    What a great cardigan. Mustard yellow is one color I do not own.

  • Maria December 12, 2014 at 6:19 pm

  • Amber December 13, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    Thank you so much for your feature Rachel! I definitely love how you styled yours over your striped maxi, and pattern mixed with your leopard flats. Your purse and necklace ties the whole look together so well!
    Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
