Mustard Yellow Seventies Shawl

November 2015

Hello! Ever since I added this mustard yellow shawl to my wardrobe last week, it's practically all that I want to wear. The bold mustard yellow color, knit texture and seventies appeal of the shawl all make it absolutely irresistible. I find myself reaching for it again and again to layer over whatever outfit I'm wearing and having to restrain myself from wearing it too many times in a row. After all, I do have a reputation on campus for dressing well that I do have to uphold and I don't think wearing the same piece of clothing day in and day out fits in so well with that. I figure I can wear it a couple times a week and get away with it.

For this look, I threw the iconic seventies shawl over a cute daisy printed dress. Although it's barely noticeable in this photo, I like how the color of the shawl accentuates the tiny bit of yellow in the daisy print of the dress. To emphasize the free-spirited, bohemian appeal of the shawl even further, I also styled it with a pair of seventies-inspired neutral wedges. I accessorized with a handful of golden bracelets and a couple golden necklaces. A swipe of red lipstick finalized the look.
