Acorns and Mustard

February 24, 2012

Here I am, standing in front of the "Raining Acorns" mural by local Santa Cruz artist Bob von Elgg. I love this wall, it is big and fun, and I love how the acorns are quite cartoonish. I decided to play with the mustard color of the acorns by wearing a mustard dominated outfit! I absolutely adore this vintage coat! I find that most mustard colored coat are usually a muted mustard or ogre mustard, so when I came across this bright marigold mustard coat I knew I had to have it! OMG! It has a fur peter pan collar too! How amazing is that? Oh and this bag... so very mod looking but don't let it trick you, it is not vintage! I love how the mustard with cream and brown matched nicely with my coat and shoes!

    For the commentors who asked, the mural is located on the back wall of Safeway, 2203 Mission Street, Santa Cruz, CA, next to Taqueria Santa Cruz. It is 18' tall by 84' wide. To see a timelapse video of the mural installation visit: http://bobvonelgg.com/mural-timelapse.html Thanks again!
