Midweek Monochrome


Last week felt like it flew by, but this week feels like it's creeping ever so slowly. And it's not like I don't have enough to keep me busy! In addition to doing the things I need to keep the blog going, I've had to get the washing machine repair man in, keep a doctor's appointment, redo the silk flower arrangements in the living room, and referee several fights between Blue Cat and Black Cat. And it's only Wednesday!

Today, I'm feeling monochrome in burgundy. So, I have three ways to do that for you. Two skirts and one trouser outfit. I suppose I should be calling it Marsala for the Pantone Color of the Year. But most of these items are more burgundy, cranberry or wine in tone. Marsala is really a reddish brown tone.

Start with a tee covered in birds. Tuck it into an asymmetrical skirt of mixed fibers.Warm it up with a waffle knit cardi with no buttons. Wrap your neck with a plaid scarf. Pop in spherical earrings. Step into strappy stilettos. And grab a great structured bag. You're stepping out in style! Monochromatic style!
And here we have the trousers, skinny trousers. Top them with a tee in a lighter shade of our main color. Warm it all up with an oversized, chunky knit sweater. Step into ankle boots. Drape a fabulous scarf at your neck. Pop in teardrop earrings. And grab a bucket bag for trend.
And finally, start with a leather skirt that stops at the knee. Top it with an oversized, thin, sparkle knit sweater. Drape a lovely, tone-on-tone scarf at your neck. Step into shiny patent t-strap heels. Pop on triple drop stone earrings. And grab a suede cross-body bag.

Three ways to wear one color with flare! Do you do monochromatic? What's your favorite color to do it with?
