Monochromatic Blues

Day 2 of the Winter Challenge is Monochromatic.  I had an idea to wear all purple, but when I pulled it all out of my closet, I wasn't really impressed.  Then I was going to be lazy and wear my trouser jeans with a blue gingham button down and sweater, but that felt pretty uninspired.  Staring at my closet, I saw this summery skirt peeking out and thought it was worth a try.  I ended up taking the gingham shirt off and adding turquoise tights.  I feel a little ridiculous, but this look is growing on me.

When I went to grab my normal jewelry, I remembered this necklace that my sister got me for Christmas.  I think it adds a little something extra to my monochrome look!

Is anyone tired of these boots yet?  I warned you I wear them all the time in the winter!

Tomorrow's challenge is Embrace a Trend.  My added personal challenge:  wear different shoes!

  1. That necklace is gorgeous! And I really love head-to-toe blue. I've seen a lot of it today and every time I feel like I want to run to my closet and see what I can pull together. And I love that you used a more summery piece and made it work for the weather. Lovely!
