To Do:

1. Add to The List of Style Choices Husband Doesn’t Understand: mustard tights.

2. Add to The List of Accessories Every Girl Needs This Fall: mustard tights.

When I walked into the shop this afternoon [C and I often split days in half, and being the sunshiny morning person that I am not, I get the after-lunch shift] he looked down at my legs and made a stink face. Which is enough evidence for me to believe that he is not a fan of mustard legs. I think they’ll grow on him. Like a yellowy-orange fungus.

    I LOVE the way your fashionable ensembles are captured in each image! Can you tell me what type camera & lens you’re using? It’s just what I’ve been looking for to start my blog… Thanks for the inspiration!

    • keiralennox 04/15/2013 at 10:20 am

      Thank you! We bought a Canon Rebel a few years ago, and it’s been such a great learning camera for us! We still use the original lens that came with it. It’s an investment — around $400 — but it was worth it :-)

    I love the mustard tights, but I adore your boots! Bold tights and boots go hand-in-hand this time of year, and what a great color combination! I think a shopping trip is on today’s agenda.

  • PCC Advantage 11/14/2011 at 11:11 am

    I don’t think that I would’ve been able to imagine that such a cute outfit could begin with mustard tights…good on you for being able to put it all together so beautifully! :)

  • juzicka 11/14/2011 at 10:18 am

  • gheula canarutto 11/14/2011 at 9:46 am

    I think I don’t have time even to look at the color of my tights, because I am organizing my daughter’s wedding and I am writing a blog on this mad period….39motherofthebride.com

  • oolung 11/14/2011 at 9:18 am

    Just saw this post on Freshly Pressed and fell in love with the images. Don’t know if I’d like to wear mustard tights (maybe I would if I got a husband – just so he could hate them?), but together with the wall, the flowers etc. – love the whole ensemble! Look how effective they are – they made me subscribe to your blog at first sight!

  • toriblogsstuff 11/14/2011 at 9:00 am

    lovin’ mustard! in fact i too just devoted a whole post to it. :)

    Yes indeed!! Wore mustard tights to church this past Sunday…And always…..always have mustard on my pizza!!!

  • Kato McKracken 11/13/2011 at 10:48 pm

    My sister has this pair of mustard tights that she NEVER wears. I’ve been asking her if I could have them for so long, and she would always say no. I forgot about them for a while, and finally yesterday, she told me I could have them. But after waiting and waiting for them, the charm and desire had finally wore off. I took them anyway, and I’m glad I did, because this post has renewed my obssession with them! Congrats on being Freshly Pressed!

  • natasiarose 11/13/2011 at 3:40 pm

    I like it, but the white is more summer white than winter white. A diff color would have rocked harder.

  • Lauren 11/13/2011 at 3:04 pm

    I just wore my mustard yellows on Thursday to rehearsal for the play I’m currently in — wore them with a blue dress and red ballet flats. I got so many compliments, it was awesome. Yellow tights seem to be popular among my friends, which was kind of satisfyin because when I got them, my mom goes “Mustard yellow tights? Mustard… YELLOW… tights?! Why would you want mustard yellow tights?” Well, mom, why WOULDN’T you want mustard yellow tights? Yellow is wonderful.

  • sarahnsh 11/13/2011 at 3:02 pm

    I think he made that stink face because he was jealous he could never pull that off with the tights. ;-) I think that they look great on you!

  • StrangeLittleGirl 11/13/2011 at 1:21 pm

    great scarf! And that nail design looks really cute too!

  • mmgoodsongs 11/13/2011 at 11:42 am

    They are SPECTACULAR! Anything in mustard pretty much is (including Mustard itself…yummy) I have to say I am in love with mustard’s cousin saffron as well. …..all year long. Lovely.

  • Sasha 11/13/2011 at 12:33 am

    Excellent! It’s been so nice to see risk taking in color these past few seasons and so glad that you’re on it with the mustard stockings. I also have to say that I’m digging the model’s manicure in your photos. Great black tips!

  • Brown Sugar Britches 11/12/2011 at 10:44 pm

  • Lacie 11/12/2011 at 9:43 pm

    if I had a nickle for every time my husband made that weird scrunch face that just reads “what were you thinking?” – This from the color blind man who has just no clue…He has finally stopped making that face when it comes to polka dots so that’s a step in the right direction. :) Congrats on being freshly pressed and I love your mustard tights!

  • Ashly Kissman 11/12/2011 at 8:55 pm

    OMG! I want mustard yellow tights right now and my boyfriend just doesn’t understand. But they look great! U wear them well with the white dress :)

  • It's A Want 11/12/2011 at 8:40 pm

    Adorable!! I love the fact that you added mustard tights to the list of items husbands don’t understand. I was wearing mine the other day as well and my husband seemed a tad confused LOL.. my sister put them on yesterday and said she felt like a crayon in the crayon box.. I on the other hand am obsessed with them!!
    You Look Great!!

    I had some socks that colour (pop-socks, oh decades ago). However, I was never tempted to put a giraffe around my neck… ;)

  • madisoncary 11/12/2011 at 11:24 am

    i just love mustard colored anything! great choice!
    p.s. my husband unfortunately does the same thing, but hey, as long as we love it, that’s what matters!

  • hanz57 11/12/2011 at 10:35 am

    I think they look great! But, I have a feeling my husband will probably feel the same way as your man LOL. There are some things men just don’t get, I think the whole outfit is perfect and very Fall!

    Perfect for fall! I must get a pair, although I’m sure my husband will be equally unappreciative! I love the cardigan in these photos.

  • valentinedee 11/12/2011 at 7:15 am

    Do you really care if they grow on him or not? lol. YOU go girl. You wear them yellowy mustardy tights.

    This gives me the urge to go get a pair of mustard tights; just to see how everyone I know (and everyone I don’t) reacts to ’em. HAHA

    Love the post! Congrats on FP’d!

    My favorite scarf is my mustard one. It’s also one of my favorite condiments. Win-win.

  • Anna 11/11/2011 at 10:00 pm

    I don’t really think mustard’s my colour… I might just have to stick to black :D

  • rastelly 11/11/2011 at 8:28 pm

    My brother wanted a set of enormous
    80’s style headphones, because he thought
    these tiny modern ones were uncomfortable.
    What I didden’t understand was why he
    wanted them in lime, aka puke green.

    Mustard? It may just be the image but
    they seem more like rust. A color I’m
    currently obsessed with. Great
    onsaumble, very unique.

  • mybakingempire 11/11/2011 at 7:28 pm

    Not sure how I feel about the mustard tights, but I am so down for your nails. Super cool manicure!

  • iamsplatt 11/11/2011 at 7:22 pm

    I am not a fan of mustard, however I applaud your bravery! You manage to make it classy, which is not really a word you can relate to this colour or condiment! :)

    I have two different categories in my closet: Things my husband “gets” and things he “doesn’t get. Mostly the latter, since he doesn’t even “get” cardigans. He thinks they are all Grandma-chic.

  • countoncross 11/11/2011 at 4:30 pm

    I love it when people use a little bit of color to stand out, but still look classy! very nice!

  • Edward Hotspur 11/11/2011 at 4:18 pm

    Mustard tights always make me think “Y you no tan your face?” But I would never say that out loud. Nope. Not me.

  • happyfoodbaby 11/11/2011 at 4:09 pm

    I’d love to see a close-up of your nails, they look cool! Also, good skirt length with these tights. I’ve seen young ladies looking like extras from The Simpsons wearing denim cut-offs. Mustard tights can go so badly wrong but your look is very pretty.

  • Kellie 11/03/2011 at 11:25 am

    I can relate! I wore purple tights to work on Tuesday and got a lot of not-so-covert glances from folks at my legs. Then they looked away, as if I had offended them. As for your mustard tights, I’m currently on the hunt for a pair of my own!

  • Christine 11/02/2011 at 10:31 am

  • Virginie's Cinema 11/01/2011 at 2:13 pm

    He he, I totally agree! I adore my mustard tights (I got them from ModCloth) and last time I wore them my husband was like ” did you get this in the 99 cents bin at the thrift store?”. No dear, I don’t thrift tights (ew?).

    I love them with the cream girly dress and the super pretty bouquet!

    • keiralennox 11/01/2011 at 3:38 pm

      “No dear, I don’t thrift tights” just made me laugh out loud! Boys just don’t understand [shakes head].
