Today's Everyday Fashion: How Now Brown Cow







































On my recent hunt for mustard skinny jeans, I stumbled upon a great find at TJ Maxx. These camel jeans were only $15, and I have a feeling I will be getting ton of use out of them this fall/winter (they are, after all, one of my favorite colors!). The first look I came up with is a monochromatic brown look. I used a faux fur collar as a scarf to add volume and texture, and pinned the ends together with a turquoise brooch. Mustard jeans have alluded me for the moment, but I hope to find some soon! What color skinny jeans are you on the hunt for right now? 

Sweater: H&M, old
Faux fur collar: H&M, $15
Jeans: TJ Maxx, $15 (recent)
Belt: H&M, $20
Shoes: Restricted from Endless, $40
Brooch: Stella & Dot


1. Forever 21 brown skinnies, $24.80
2. Forever 21 camel skinnies, $19.50
3. Free People camel cords, $68

  1. The fur collar totally takes this outfit from good to great! It really steps it up, especially pairing the broach with it.  As for colored skinnies, green or deep wine are on list.

  2. Great outfit! I love the neutral tones with the fur, great way to keep it looking like fall! I'm searching for cobalt and red skinnies, I have red pants but they are not winter appropriate! Definitely needing more colored pants in my wardrobe.

  4. A couple of years ago for Halloween, I went as Carly Simon with inspiration from the No Secrets album cover.  So I bought some cranberry colored skinny cords from TJ Maxx for $6.  They've been in my closet ever since but this fall there have been so may posts with cranberry/wine colored skinnies, I've been wearing them for real.  Awesomeness.

  10. Have you seen the BDG high-rise jeans from Urban Outfitters?  They may be more yellow than the mustard you are looking for though!

  11. Yes, those are really cute but was hoping for more of a mustard color than pure yellow.

  12. Ohh that color jean is so fun! I feel like it's a good neutral! And shoot- I just saw mustard jeans and I can't remember where... I want to say Nordstrom Juniors department?! But I can't quite remember! I now have cobalt and berry colored jeans and am now on the hunt for a dark, dark purple! I tried on a pair of bright purple ones last night at Target and hated them on me- I felt like Barney, which is a bummer because I feel like some girls can pull them off! But so far the only dark purple ones I've seen are super expensive :(
