According to Styleoholic, Mustard is a timeless fall color, which is always on top during the fall, it never goes out of style. Hatista admits, Yellow isn’t a colour that you typically see everyone wearing. People see it as bright, loud, and in-your-face. It’s a bold colour, and most consider it something you wouldn’t wear if trying to play it safe. In this blog post, we've pooled together some style inspiration from all over the internet to help you add a little sunshine to your maternity closet!
