Monochromatic dressing. The cheats way right? Yep, that’s me!
It’s my turn today to choose the style challenge for us five blogging ladies, and I thought my choice needed to be what sums me up best.
I’ve been dressing like this for years, and I find it gives my petite frame the look of more height. At only 5’2 I have to be careful of different mixed tops to skirts or trousers, trying to achieve a longer silhouette so to speak.
Plus it’s just so much easier to mix and match items from the colours that I collect I guess. A bit like a capsule wardrobe.
The outfit’s made up of Blush Pink, with a little mix of white and other shades of pinks.Pink sunglasses and this hairclip attached to my top that was a present from a friend. You can’t see it in my hair, so it get’s added elsewhere. The Shell top is old, from Next, but I wear it a lot. Again it’s easy.
The pleated skirt has been a trend that I welcomed with open arms. I do love a floaty skirt. I’ve worn this one since last winter. Perfect to pack if you’re going away, just twist it into a long loop and all those pleats stay in place. Plus it doesn’t take up any room in the suitcase.
The skirt is from FandF and it’s still available in a metallic shade here
Another tip that I learned is to go up one size when buying a pleated skirt. They can be very unforgiving in the tummy area! but trust me this helps.
A simple White clutch bag and my watch, oh and my blush pink earrings finished the look.
That completes my Monochromatic look. What do you think? A little tame for a blogger? Or do you like the easy way out? Let’s take a look at the other four bloggers looks.
I think Gail from Is This Mutton looks amazing in all white. The balance is perfect, the added interest with different textures and the large pearls.
Anna from Annas Island Style has turned simple Black and white into cool by adding different sized Gingham and spots. Aways so well put together.
Ashley from Lazy Daisy Jones is looking absolutely gorgeous in all White. I’m going to talk her into bringing me that top next time we meet up! I want it! Again the different textures is what pulls the outfit together
Jacqui from Mummabstylish gets tops marks for braving this bright yellow colour.The floral waistcoat adds a lovely feminine touch, and I love the Gold accessories.
Have a great week everyone. Next time on here I will be brave showing off a swimsuit. I hope the weather stays good!
