{Performing Pins} My Mustard Addiction

It's only fair to share...Pin on PinterestTweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on YummlyBuffer this pageShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone
I’m a fan of Pinterest.com.
(In case you couldn’t tell!)
But, like many fans I often pin away and don’t actually do/buy/make anything I’ve pinned. 
(Sad Face)
Lately I have been challenging myself to actually DO the things I’ve pinned. 
This challenge is going to be named {Performing Pins}.
(not too clever, I know.)
If you look at my pinterest board “My Cool Mom Clothing Wants” you might notice 
(like I did)
that I have a thing for the color mustard.

So, when shopping for the fall I kinda went Mustard crazy. 
Mustard flannel hat from local Fred Meyer, Mustard tights from Hue, Mustard top from Target and Mustard flats from Old Navy.
So, what has this got to do with parties? Well, not a WHOLE lot.. 
except, that it totally inspired a recent party look for me! 
My lovely friends and family recently threw me and my little family a Sip and See when we traveled home to Oklahoma. (Photos coming to the blog soonish.) 
I needed something cute, comfortable, Fall-like and party-worthy. 
I pulled my inspiration from this BEAUTIFUL picture on Dee*Construction

 I loved the boots. I loved the blue dress. I loved the cardigan. And, I LOVED the mustard tights.
So, I went with it… I did need to find a blue dress with button down front or a flexible v-neck so feeding the little one would be no trouble and I knew that I’d be wearing my dark brown boots and tan sweater so I had to make the outfit work with that. Here is what I came up with:
Me with my friend Jill (who helped throw the party)
 And, our well coordinated family photo:


Sweater: Forever 21, Dress: Old Navy, Tights: Hue.com, Boots: Sonoma Life & Style from Kohls
 *All of the above links go to the main site because all of the styles (except the tights) are no longer being sold

I think this look would  be great for a 
Fall baby shower (as I wore it), Thanksgiving dinner or even a Sunday brunch.
