Mustard Skirt

I wore this outfit to Renegade on Saturday.  Something mustard was high on my spring/summer wishlist this year--I love the color but can't wear it too close to my face so a skirt was a perfect compromise.  The hunt took much longer and I think I must have looked at every store but couldn't quite find what I was looking for.  Finally I turned to etsy and found this vintage version which had the perfect color, fabric and cute brass buttons.  Unfortunately the measurements were a little off and when the skirt arrived, I realized that it had a 25 inch waist.  I went to plead my case to my alterations lady and she magically removed the waistband, which gave me the needed room so I could actually eat lunch.  My number one fashion tip is to have a great alterations person.  At this rate, I'm personally putting her kids through school with all my alterations!
