Would you like a spoon of mustard with that?

Mustard, it seems to have featured heavily in my life over the last few weeks. First of all I made the discovery that I actually like the taste of it after refusing to eat it my whole life just because it looked incredibly weird! However I accidentally had it in a sandwich a few weeks ago and discovered that the flavour I enjoyed so much in it was, in fact, the dreaded mustard! However my new found love only lasted a week or two after starting work at a pub and on the first day the crazy landlady made me eat a teaspoon of mustard to prove that I didn't need to put so much in a dish because it had such a strong taste and we had 'no idea how much it cost her!' Child abuse if you ask me! After that very hungover spoonful of mustard I thought I was going to throw up, which ended my brief love affair with the condiment. However, the mustard colour has come into my life again with it now being my favourite colour for clothing. Having a look around the shops, it is everywhere and I love it! I think its a really flattering colour for my skin tone and I need to get my hands on some! Here are a few of my favourite picks from the high street.

  1. I love mustard shades! Love all the items you have picked out! There is a beautiful dress up in my local Miss Selfridge which is more of a yellow mustard. I always admire it every time I walk past! xxx

  4. Hi treacle, thanks for your lovely comment. I have only worn my red dress a few times but it actually goes with a lot. You could wear it with a little denim jacket (don't know why it has to be little lol), tights and a blazer or put a black chunky knit jumper over it. I love it, Primark is the best sometimes.

    Loving the mustard especially the topshop shorts, I wanted them but they had sold out in my size booooo!!!!!

    Have a lovely weekend xoxo
