Mustard is like fuchsia for me; I always want more of it in my closet, but, I don't know, as much as I like mustardseriously into itnot many mustard things please me. It's an almost annoyingly difficult colour to work with, but I can't decide if it's the colour mustard that's being annoying or if it's just me. (I know it's the latter, I just don't want to say it).

But I promise I've been making more mustard efforts. For starters, well, this mustard cardigan. In love with this mustard cardigan, OK. It's made even more perfect because it's thin enough to be worn comfortably in hot and humid Malaysia, but I layered this on when I was in Japan in the cold weather and it helped combat the cold.
Magic cardigans like this are the best.

By the way, I also got a winter coat in mustard. I didn't even know when I would get to use it when I bought it in a shop in Ginza, but it's one of the things where I thought "Gots to have it man, GOTS TO."




Can we talk about these mom-jeans-like jeans that are actually boyfriend jeans? I got these ages ago at a sale; I think Pull & Bear was experimenting with boyfriend jeans and got the proportions all wrong because there was a whole stack of them. The sizes were just confusing; I got them in about three sizes smaller than my usual size. I did try my usual size but it was like I had men's jeans on; it just felt all wrong on me, even with a belt on. I had to keep going out of the fitting room to get one size smaller, each time thinking "OK the next one down has to be the one", but, what do you know, the third time (going back out of the fitting room and in again) is the real charm.
