Black And Mustard

Good day fine folks! Life is been pretty sweet around here, I’m just starting a week off work and it feels so lovely to be home with the loved ones and spending some time together after such a tremendously busy month. With a couple of days left before Christmas i am finally chilling out and soaking up all the lovely festivities. In true Rachel-style(ie leave everything till the last minute) i still have a few little things i need to get but i hope to rectify that tomorrow and then bring on Christmas day… yay!!

 So this outfit comes directly to you from my most re-pinned pin ever. With 325 re pins this outfit seems to be a popular choice on pintrest. I was immediately drawn to it at the beginning of Autumn for its simple but strong outfit qualities. Simple to put together, but great strong colour and impact! Love! Do you have a certain pin on any of your boards that seems to attract a lot of re-pins?

 mama needs a new hat asap… is it too late to request a new black wide brimmed hat, Santa?

 And the coated jeans make another appearance. Leather, faux leather and coated jeans have most definitely been my choice of clothing this season, without a shadow of a doubt. I can always manage to put some kind of outfit together with one of those items. I’m still crushing on these jeans which makes me happy i took the chance on a different for me piece and bought them a couple of months back. I still have a ton of remixing ways for them;)

 So are you all ready for the big day? We did our gigantic food shop today and now my cupboards and fridge is filled with amazing foods and goodies, its taking all of my will power not to eat them all right now (whilst watching Supernatural and blogging of course!) Maybe just a sneaky choccy or cookie or two, its practically Christmas, right?

    Love the mustard sweater and your great hat!
    I can never figure out what causes some pins to gain hundreds of repins… mystery of the universe.

    Very nice! I can see why the pin is so popular! And I really like that you changed the nude heels to black — very classic 🙂

    I like your version of this outfit even better than that pin! Your yellow sweater is awesome and such a fun, bold color choice. It looks great with those cool coated jeans. I seriously love this. You look wonderful!
