I am not the best at trying new things; whether that's food, places, people or fashion. I stick with what I know I like and that works for me - mostly because by doing so I am pretty much guaranteed a good experience.
That being said, I am trying to be better about that and pushing myself outside of my comfort zone. Which is where this top enters in. Mustard yellow is a color that I normally steer clear of - because according to my skin tone and hair color it's definitely not something that's going to be flattering on me. However, when I saw the ruffle sleeves on this C/meo Collective top I simply couldn't resist. And I am so happy that I didn't because I absolutely love it. In fact, I have worn it 3 times in the last two weeks, and one of those times was while I was in Canada so that doesn't really count because no one saw me in it....so don't judge me;)
Now, this isn't a color I'm going to start rockin' often - but I am going to be a bit more open to it - especially with how popular it is this season. I feel like I am seeing mustard yellow everywhere. I will also say that what really makes this shirt for me are the details with the keyhole neckline and the ruffle sleeves.
In fact, I don't think I have ever loved sleeves as much as I love these. Like if I could add these sleeves to 1/2 my wardrobe I would be a happy camper. They are just flow so perfectly - it's like my arms are wearing little mini ballgowns.
Also, yes, I know we have a shitload of leaves...don't judge me there either. We're raking this weekend I promise.
Cheers to it finally being Friday!! We've got our annual Friendsgiving this weekend so be sure to follow along on Instagram for all the party prep craziness and day of fun.
