Today is packed with office hours, class prep, errands, and my advisor's investiture, so I wanted to wear something comfortable, cheerful, and professional. This sweater was a recent birthday gift, and a bit of a risk--I have a closet full of brown, navy, and gray sweaters and this is an unusual color for me. But it turns out that I love mustard yellow and it goes with a lot of fall colors I like to wear--brown, navy, dark purple, and dark reds. I think this might be my new go-to sweater that goes with everything in my closet.

What non-basic colors are your go-to?

(and also: thanks to Marie for the savvy photo advice)

The last picture is beautiful! The outfit is perfect. I'm still trying to figure out how to work with big scarves and belts, so this sets a good example for me. My go-to color for more pop is bright red, although I usually stick with dark brown, blue and black.

I love reds, too, especially the way they look against purple and yellow (and of course, my old faithful, gray).
