mustard sweater grey skirt outfit

I’ve mentioned this Ann Taylor sweater skirt a few times now and just wanted to show how it looks when on! It’s long enough for the office (mine measured about 19 inches which hits right above my knees), and you can fold the wide waistband over to shorten it for casual wear, like I did here. When folded over, it also created a nifty place to tuck my sweater hem in.

Mustard yellow + gray has to be one of my favorite combinations for Fall! FYI this sweater isn’t as bright goldenrod as it appears in these photos…more of a muted mustard which is less loud. I added a printed clutch to break up all the solid shades in this outfit.mustard sweater grey skirt outfit 2
This photo below from my Instagram shows the color a bit more accurately. I’ve also worn this with my Banana Republic textured pants – the slim cut offers a nice balance to the swingy A-line shape of the sweater. And oh, thank you to a kind reader Tiffany for letting me know that these Halogen “Marlie” d’orsay leopard pumps I have from over a year ago have been fully restocked starting in size 4! They’re one of my favorites with a manageable mid-height heel, and I didn’t think they would be brought back after so long. They do run a smidge big – I’m usually between 5 and 5.5 and a 5 fits me comfortably.

    Great color. It's so hard to find well-fitting sweaters. Sweaters that don't bulge out and make you look super blobby. It would be so awesome if you could write a post on that!

  13. I've been trying to master the sweater and skirt combo! Definitely have to start experimenting with sweater shapes now. The pleats in the gray skirt really give the outfit nice dimensions. Really loving it!

    I love mustard yellow + grey combo! They are currently the colors for my place as well. However, as we are slowly moving into the holiday season, the yellows will be slowly replaced by some gold accents soon!
