Hi everyone, Dus of Cuddly Cacti here! Mustard definitely appears to be a "must have" for this year, but after looking at the pictures I just took, it's again one of those colors I seem to love in theory. Looking back I can't think of a single mustard item I own, perhaps because I always think yellow/mustard hues aren't the best for my complexion/hair color. But, seeing so many of the rest of the crew look amazing in Erica's dress, I decided I'd give it a shot too!
While I still wouldn't say it's my best color I loved the color, the sleeves, the pleated top and flared skirt and had so much fun wearing something so different than anything I own (always my favorite thing with these swaps)! And of course I "hippied it up" a bit per my frequent style with a vintage backpack and this handwoven belt, chuckling to myself that Erica herself wore purple and yellow in our most recent style challenge. Thanks Erica for loaning so many of us your gorgeous dress!

And here's how much of the Flock Together crew have styled up Erica's dress:

Do you have any colors you love "in theory" or is it just me? And have you ever worn a color you thought would be awful on you and ended up loving it? I'd love to see hear about or see links if you have any. Hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Days and thanks for following along! I'd love if you said hi over on my blog, and don't forget you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter as well if you'd like.
