OOTD: Houndstooth and Mustard Yellow

Nothing beats the feeling of taking off the tags on a new purchase and wearing it for the first time. I got the chance to do that twice with today’s outfit.

I’ve always loved the preppy look  of houndstooth print and how beautifully chic the mustard yellow cardigan makes the entire outfit look. And even though Pantone named radiant orchid as colour of the year for 2014, I’d still pick this cardigan from Banana Republic to compliment this look.
