Day Seventeen: Mustard Boyfriend Cardigan & Stripes


 I’ve always been a fan of cardigans but after having my babies I wasn’t a fan of how they drew attention to the wrong areas of my body. So I stopped wearing them. Then I discovered the Boyfriend cardigan and a whole new world opened up for me. Long enough to cover my booty and not form fitting, they’re perfect for moms. I’ve had my eye on this mustard color for awhile but never bought it until now. I was still unsure whether I could pull it off but pairing it with the navy stripes sold me!

I should show you a picture of all the Boyfriend cardigans hanging in my closet right now. I’m almost ashamed….almost. But they really are the perfect cardigans and I love them. Expect to see one in every color this Fall and Winter. I substituted the tank for a long sleeve top because the navy/white stripe tank I ordered from Old Navy hadn’t come in yet. 



1. Medium Blue skinny Jeans: Mossimo for Target Modern Fit Skinny Jeans- HERE; bought for $21.78 on BOGO sale

2. Navy/White Striped Top: Merona for Target- HERE; bought for $9 on BOGO sale

3. Mustard Cardigan: Mossimo for Target- HERE; bought for $15.99 with Cartwheel coupon

4. Pattern Scarf: Walmart (not available online)- OPTION 1 & OPTION 2; bought for $4.97

5. Cowboy Boots: Kohl’s (last season)- OPTION 1; bought for $14.99 on clearance

I love the cowboy boots with this outfit. And let me tell you- if you are looking for some skinny jeans that fit normally on the waist, hips, and thighs but are tight on the lower legs for boot wearing- these are perfect. They don’t bunch or scrunch when you wear tall boots over them. They’re similar to the super skinny Old Navy Rockstar ones I have.

    So cute! I’m on the hunt for a mustard cardigan myself – yellow’s never been a great color on me, but I’m holding out hope! Love how you paired in with the stripes!

    And I so hear you on the boyfriend cardigan thing! The best mom-sweater, ever! My two favorites have holes in them, that’s how much I wear them. I think it might be time to replace a couple! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Yellow is not great on me either but for some reason, mustard works. I just bought a pair of mustard skinny jeans. I’m embracing change in my wardrobe and stepping WAY outside my comfort zone. Haha!

      I’m pretty sure the boyfriend cardigan is the best thing ever. It hides my butt nicely which is always the goal ๐Ÿ™‚

  • This outfit is really cute! I’m loving this series! Thank you for all the inspiration!

    • Thank you! I’m having so much fun putting together new outfits. Thank goodness for Pinterest!
