Purple and mustard is an unusual and unexpected color combination, even for me (who loves all weird color combos!). Purple, my most hated color, is one of those hues I’ve been trying to experiment with lately, because I figure I should probably give it a fair shot. I mean, why play favorites?

I went out of the proverbial limb last weekend and purchased these fine lil’ lavender numbers for only $16 at Forever 21. Better yet–they’re stretchy. SCORE. Maybe these pants are enabling me to eat more. Either way, I’m hooked.

In an effort to combine this new hue with something more familiar and comfortable, I added some touches of mustard (one of my most beloved colors in my wardrobe). With a simple formula, I was able to K.I.S.S. and be a bit matchy-matchy. Odd for me, but somehow I was pleased. This is the kind of thing I wear when I’m being lazy and say hmmm…these pants are comfortable let’s see what goes. Alright then, I have a scarf and shoes in the same color, check and check. DONE. Now let’s get caffeine and pretend to be awake for the next eight hours.

Are you all feelin’ purple and mustard/gold together? What’s your favorite color combo?
