M is for Monotone

 Outfit Details: Coat: Oleg Cassini; Shirt (not shown): Walmart; Skirt: Express, via Ross; Tights: Ross; Shoes: Rampage; Scarf: E-bay.


Freckles in April I’m always in love with Monotone outfits. I’ve done them in pink, red, and white. They’re one of my favorites. This one is no exception. Though I did feel a little dark and depressing, so the scarf bow really helped in that regard.

I almost never wear this coat, because it’s not the most flattering but I still love it. Sometimes I just like wearing things that make me look like a box. I can’t help it!

 In other news: an all black outfit is very difficult to get pictures of! Everything just seemed so dark, so my camera had a couple malfunctions (as in the bow detail picture above where it overexposed EVERYTHING).

Pink, It’s My New Obsession

Pink, it's not even a question.

What? Who doesn’t love pink?

Outfit Details: Earrings: gift (similar); Cardigan: Jones New York (similar); Top: Cable and Gauge, via Macy’s (similar style, color); Jeans: gift (exact); Shoes: Shelly’s of London, via Modcloth (similar).

Ever since the 21 Day Challenge, especially the Day 9 Challenge I’ve absolutely loved monochromatic outfits.  It’s really been the start of a new obsession: dressing in all one color. When I snagged this $8 top from Macy’s, I hadn’t considered what I’d wear it with. However, once I’d paired it with these pink jeans there was simply no going back. I had to have everything pink.

Of course, the outfit is certainly a statement–but who doesn’t want to stand out from time to time?

I ended up loving the look so much I want to recreate it almost everyday. However, I’ll try to resist.
