Cutting The Mustard Trend With Bonmarche


I didn’t publish a Pantone colour forecast this year but I think it’s pretty clear that Mustard is leading the way in the colour charts this year. Along with Leopard, Snakeskin and Zebra being a very strong fashion trend too.

I’ve been keen to get some of this mustard into my wardrobe and I have a few pieces to share with you the next coming weeks,


I didn't publish a Pantone colour forecast this year but I think it's pretty clear that Mustard is leading the way in the colour charts this year.


I’ve been searching for a Biker jacket for some time. I only have one in my wardrobe but the leathers very stiff therefore it rarely makes an appearance. As soon as I clapped eyes on this Mustard Biker it was love!


I didn't publish a Pantone colour forecast this year but I think it's pretty clear that Mustard is leading the way in the colour charts this year.


What do you think of this colour? I think it’s so cheery!  The faux suede feels like chamois leather, super soft yet it’s no lightweight jacket, not heavy but heavier than it looks. This makes the jacket hang well and you would never think it was only £40.00 ( £32.00 until Thursday) It really looks like a high-end item of clothing.

I’ve paired the mustard Biker with two other items from Bonmarche too. These Julie Jeggings are so easy to wear. A bit of a wardrobe staple aren’t they? I don’t think you can ever have enough Jeggings in your wardrobe. Again a bargain, and a nice fit too.

I’m always telling my daughter to look in Bonmarche when she’s in town and she smirks at me! Saying it’s for the old girls! When I turn up for a visit, she’ll say “Oh I like that mum” And I tell her it’s from Bonmarche. She loved the denim dress I featured here a few weeks ago

Anyway, I get a phone call the other day


” Mum. I’m in Bonmarche and I have to say there’s so many things here I like. I can’t believe I’m saying this!”

I’ve told her that I have to publish that sentence! But anyone that knows Bonmarche will know how much it’s come up in the world the last few years. This year has been the best yet I think. The AW18 for this year is right up my street, go take a look on the Bonmarche Instagram and let me know what you think?

This conservatory that I’m standing in is at Syon Park. You must have heard me mention it before. I take a lot of my photos here in the gardens.

I’m loving the Vanity Fair series and one of the parties was actually filmed here. It was interesting to see how they had decorated this grand place for a party.


Mustard and Navy work so well together



What Other colours would I pair this mustard jacket with? Black will look good, grey, green and teal or browns. I think I will get a lot of wear out of it. The jackets available in a lot of other colours I also like the grey and Charcoal. It’s machine washable too!


I just wanted to show what a good fit the Julie Jeggins are. I’m tempted to try them in black.

    My daughter gives me similar smirks too so I know exactly how you feel, Laurie. The jacket is fabulous in style and colour. It would be difficult to find the colour that would not match with this cheery mustard. And I am sure it will look great with the skirt too.
    Incidentally, i just bought a jumper in similar colour

    This made me giggle because I remember my mum looking in Bonmarche a very long time ago and thinking the same thing. It’s certainly changed and I’m very impressed by that jacket. The colour is spot on for Autumn too. I’ll have to pop over to check out their range. Thank you for sharing with the #dreamteam xx

    I love that color and I think it looks good on me. Those outfits look fantastic on you — I really get some great inspiration from your outfits. I’d love to find some nice shoes for mature women. Do you have any suggestions? I came over from Blogging Grandmothers.

    There are so many lovely mustard items in the shop right now, I’m super tempted to get some! Thank you for sharing this with us at #TriumphantTales. I hope to see you back next week!

    I love this soft mustard color, I have been looking for a blouse of top I could wear under a jacket.

    Big fan of mustard and yellow and bonmarche. My current swimming costumes are from there and they are the best I have ever had. Will keep my eye out for some of these pieces when I next pop in #pocolo

      I’m with you on the swimwear! I’ve said before on the blog that the fit and cut of their swimwear is one of the best. Reasonable price too xx

    I am on board the mustard train for this season! Love it for a biker jacket! I’ve been scooping up this color in tees and sweaters but would have never thought for a biker jacket. It looks amazing!

    Love this jacket! I always worry about wearing yellow toned clothes, as I am fair skinned/blond, but this is a fantastic colour on you! I reckon I could get away with this shade, and I love the shape. Great look as ever laurie x

      September 28, 2018 / 12:31 am

      Oh Definitely Kerry. It does come in other colours too. Grey is gorgeous or Pink xx

  16. September 21, 2018 / 3:42 pm

    This is such a classic color you can’t go wrong with. Classy, stylish, and super versatile. And you’re absolutely rocking it dear!

  18. September 21, 2018 / 9:23 am

    I love this colour. I have just picked out a coat which is charcoal and has this as a lining. I think it goes really well with a dark grey or even a black & white check. #POCOLO

  19. September 20, 2018 / 9:02 pm

    Okay I definitely jumped on the mustard trend last year and got a few items. I love this shade of yellow and your jacket is such a fun take on the typical leather jacket!

  20. September 20, 2018 / 6:33 pm

    I love that jacket! Mustard is one of my favourite colours and I’ve had some items in that colour in my wardrobe for years. Glad to see it’s making another appearance this Autumn! xxx

  21. September 20, 2018 / 5:06 pm

    Love the color! I stopped by a Bonmarche in the UK and I saw some pretty good items!

  22. September 20, 2018 / 8:31 am

    Cool jacket Laurie, does indeed look high end! Super match with the bag.

  23. September 19, 2018 / 10:17 pm

    I can see why you chose this one Laurie – I would have too, but then we do have the same sense of style. You know I’ve got those super wedges too. Thanks for sharing, and have a super rest of the week. Jacqui Mummabstylish

      Yes, I remember commenting on your wedges Jacqui! You would love this jacket too xx

  26. September 19, 2018 / 10:44 am

    This jacket looks fabulous – I can’t believe it’s not a lot more expensive! Beautiful photographs. I need to record Vanity Fair – I hadn’t realised it had started! xx

    • laurie
      September 19, 2018 / 10:39 pm

      Oh! You must watch Maria. It’s been really good. The jacket really does look way more expensive than it is. Glad you like it xx

  27. September 19, 2018 / 10:25 am

    Love the perfectly matched colors and ensemble. You certainly have exquisite taste, Laurie!

    What a lovely combination! The color of the jacket and the bag is very beautiful, and I love the design of your jacket. A beautiful informal look with which you do not lose an iota of your natural elegance.

      Thank you Josep_Maria. I really appreciate the support you give to the blog xx

  29. September 19, 2018 / 7:16 am

    Wow, how fab is this jacket Laurie! I’m really surprised at the quality of this – you can see the weightiness of the fabric by the way it hangs. And most importantly it’s yellow, one of my favourite colours! I love the cute little handbag too. Biker jackets are great at this time of year as we start to need an extra layer – I’ve featured one on my blog too today, but I fancy that yours wins the class wars, my dear.

    Have a super week!
