I recently saw a few streetstyle pics while browsing insta of girls wearing the color mustard and was really inspired to try and find any type of fall piece in this color. I haven’t previously owned anything in this color and never really considered it either. Last season I was stuck on olive and maroon but am totally obsessing over mustard this season. Well, it’s harder to find affordable pieces in this color than you’d think. Luckily, Forever 21 is a great go-to and I was able to find this oversized sweater in mustard and on sale too! Definitely check it out if you’re in the market for a sweater like this, the fit is really great.

I paired the mustard sweater with basic distressed denim and ankle boots. What I do love most about this look is how the necklace compliments the sweater so well. Typically we’ve been seeing the choker style but it’s nice to change it up to a longer necklace which also works nicely with other jewelry layering pieces. 

This Tatu Triangle Bone necklace from Jimani Collections is uniquely handmade by a woman in Kenya. Jimani Collections has really pretty and unique pieces, all of which come from Kenya, and they even have home decor. Jimani Collections offers jewelry with a story, which is something I really admired when selecting a piece from their collection. They share profits from the pieces with the women who hand-craft them. They also support the education of these women by offering them training to improve and update their skills. When you shop Jimani Collections you help them in supporting their worldwide effort in aiding women in making a career and income so that they can support themselves and their families. This is something that we may sometimes take for granted that women in other countries are not so fortunate to have.

    I 100% love everything about this look. First off the spicy mustard color of the sweater is one of my favorites for the fall and the sweater itself screams fall comfort! The little fringe bottles, and the chain add just enough to the outfit to imply that though it’s casual, it’s also very trendy and on point. So glad I stopped by.
