Like Ketchup and Mustard


This cardigan has been through a lot of life experiences with me.  It's been through more than a fair share of relationships, many moves, and even weight fluctuations (I used to love fast food).  But when it comes time to clean my closet it always makes the cut.  It's just a great staple to have.  The color is fun and it instantly brightens up a drab outfit.  I'm curious to see how long it actually sticks around...  I think it will disintegrate before I make the decision to let it go!




Cardigan- Sidecca
Dress- Forever 21 (seen here)
Skirt- Forever 21
Tights- H&M
Shoes- Steve Madden
Headband- H&M

I like to wear skirts over dresses, especially if the dress is a little longer than the skirt.  I love the look of tiers and layers and this is the easiest way to pull that off.  While I love peplum, I don't want to have a closet full of it.

I had such a lovely long weekend.  I spent time with family, did some online shopping, decorated the house for Christmas, and ate waaaaay too much goodies!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend as well :)




  1. great look!love the shoes :)

  2. I'm not sure this outfit could be more perfect! You look amazing, love everything but especially the shoes.

  3. I like these subtle details in this- like the knot in the cardigan, the two layers of "skirts" and skinny little maidbraids acting like a headband.

  4. What a fun idea to wear a skirt over a dress to get a layered look going!! And I love this cardigan, such a good staple to have! I am glad it always makes the cut, it looks fantastic with your hair :)

  5. This is absolutely gorgeous! I am so in love with your shoes and dress!

    Kisses, Lucy!

  6. Ash, this look is so perfect, hahaha I cant let go of my favourite items as well but hey it still looks pretty. The two layers of your skirt is an eyecatcher l love it Ash :-)


  7. I just love your cardigan! I can see why you won't let it go! It is stunning! Love your whole outfit and your shoes are the perfect addition!


  8. Amazing outfit! Love your mustard sweater!!!
    Im your new follower, hope you can follow me back!)

  9. Love the look, that's actually a really cool 'experiment' with the skirt over the dress! And I wouldn't get rid of that cardigan either :) xo

  10. I love the look of a knotted cardigan with a skirt! What a genius idea :) And layering dresses is one of my favorite tricks too. You get so much more mileage out of your closet that way. You look beautiful!

  11. Oh so cute! Things I love about this:

    1. Your timeless mustard cardigan. Not surprised it makes the cut every time.
    2. Your layering tip. Very clever! Thanks for sharing.
    3. Clever title! Haha!
    4. Leopard on your feet.
    5. That you enjoyed your weekend! :)


  12. super cute love the mustard cardigan with the leo shoes great look!

  13. So cute! I love your shoes!


  14. The mustard cardigan is such a nice color, I love how you tied it for a more laid back look! And the skirt over dress thing is such a great idea, I usually only put a really poufy skirt underneath another flowy skirt to give it more structure but the tiers are so pretty! AND DANG those shoes are amazing, I really like the leopard print :)

  15. Looove the shoes! This photo (maybe the scenery?) kinda reminds me of Alice in Wonderland! :)

  16. What an adorable mustard colored cardigan and lovely skirt! Plus, those leopard shoes are so cool <3

  17. That's funny - I recently starting doing the same thing with my skirts and I love it! For some reason wearing a skirt over a dress makes me feel like a cupcake..hehe...(and to me that's a good thing). This is adorable Ashley! The little leopard shoes really are the perfect cherry on the sundae <3

  18. Lovely skirt! I like the color combination on you and the leo sneakers go perfectly with the whole outfit! Love, Mary ♡ Fashionbirds

  22. ooo i never thought of adding a longer skirt under a dress for a tiered look- that's a really cute idea! and i love how that sweater stuck around for so long. i have a few that don't really match anything anymore but i just don't have the heart to give them away. i'm glad to hear i'm not the only one ;) and yellow looks awwwwesome with your hair

  23. Gorgeous outfit! Love the adorable cardi and the super cute skirt, especially with the wild shoes <3
