Today's Everyday Fashion: Casual Glam







































I want mustard jeans/pants soooo bad, and this Intermix photo is totally to blame. I'm obsessed with her outfit and am hoping to find some pants just like hers. (I would call the pants I'm wearing camel.) I tried on the LOFT pair (#1 below) recently and loved them, but I think I like the color of the Urban Outfitters pair (#2) just a tad bit more, so we'll see. Until then, I gave this outfit a shot and loved it! This outfit is an odd mix of casual (the t-shirt) and glam (the sequin jacket) but in my opinion, it just works! I would wear this to dinner with friends, or to work if I worked at a magazine. ;-) Do you like mixing casual and glam pieces? Which mustard pants do you like best?

  2. Super cute - I would definitely wear it myself! I like the color of the UO pair better; the ones from LOFT look more yellow.

  3. The casual glam look seems to be a trend among many of the style bloggers. I loved that you used a sequined jacket. I like the UO pair best for a more neutral shade of mustard and I can see you wearing them many different ways.

  6. Love this! The urban outfitters pants are the best. I may get some since I can't pull of mustard shirts/sweaters because of my skin tone, but the pants would defiantly be a good choice since I love the color and trend! Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. I love that the LOFT pants are more "yellow" mustard, and the Urban Outfitters pair is more "honey dijon". I like both!

  10. I love the mustard pants in the middle!  They are definitely up your alley and would look great on you!  Would you consider buying faux leather or real leather because they would look a million times better on you because you have great legs girl!  xx

  12. Hi J - do you mind me asking what size in this jacket you bought?  I love it but am not sure how the sizing is and dont want to end up with something I will never wear.. thanks!

  13. Hi Stephanie, I got an XS and I would say it's a snug XS as far as XS goes. :-)

  14. YES! Love Kate Moss, and you are right, she nails casual glam.

  16. Carisa, you are totally right! We all want to slather ourselves in mustard, but sometimes aways from the face is better for different skin tones.

  21. Totally agree with Carisa that this is a great idea for people that don't suit the colour near their face. J - you are the master of mustard haha. Not an easy colour to pull off but you do a great job with it :-)

  22. I have a sequin jacket and truly have surprised myself how much I've worn it - I like it best w/ ripped jeans to tone it down a bit - I think so long as you don't worry about wearing sequins in the day and just embrace it then they are really quite versatile!  I've worn mine day and night incl. to work!x

  23. Love the look of a lady like blazer or jacket over jeans... almost any color will do.

  24. .....The jacket arrived yesterday and the seams are all completely unfinished with loose strings hanging and raw edges of fabric.  Im not sure if I got a flawed item or if thats the way its supposed to be but its going back.  I was so looking forward to that one  :_(

  25. Yes, that's the way it's supposed to be! :-) It has unfinished hems, just like a Chanel jacket. (Ok, not JUSt like a Chanel jacket, but it reminds me of it.) I personally think the jacket looks way better in person than online but sorry to hear you were disappointed!
