Winter Style Challenge – Day Two // Monochrome

Hooray! Ten days of inspirational style prompts. God knows I need some! Check out Kayla’s post explaining the challenge here if you would like to play along.

Today’s challenge was:  Monochrome.

The only color that is pervasive enough in my closet to have multiple pieces is black.  I suspect I am not alone on this, but that doesn’t make me feel any less amateur. In order to (attempt) to keep from looking like I was heading down to the funeral parlor to see Phaedra and Apollo I had to find some fun accessories to add into the mix.  The leopard print belt jumped right off of it’s hanger.

Headband: Target
Jacket: Gap
Tank: Old Navy
Pants: Merona for Target
Shoes: Missoni for Target
Ring: I forget, actually. Probably — TARGET! 🙂

Overall I think this outfit is acceptable.  I would like to have more items in the same color family that aren’t identical. I think I will add that idea to the little shopping list I keep! (Along with some self tanner because HOOOOOO BOOOOY it’s been a long time since my legs have seen the light of day, and it shows!) It did make me grateful for the belt though. That was kind of an impulse buy that I bought for a holiday party last year and I figured I’d never wear it. Now it is one of my favorite things in my closet!

So monochrome was a success! A safe success, but I think a success nonetheless.
(Apparently I want to be a fashionable Dr. Seuss. Don’t mind me.)

    I don’t actually have that much black. I think I’m going purple. I have to go get dressed!

    Love that belt.

    You look hot in that outfit.

  4. ADORBS! Love the belt. I’m wearing my leopard scarf today. Too bad we’re not having lunch together — we’d be coordinated 🙂

  5. What a great looking jacket! I love the cut of it. And I love those Missoni heels. I almost bought a pair but they didn’t have my size left. You look great!

    copy rebecca on the jacket, and so perfect addition of the belt. How does one even do monochrome, apart from black? What’s the rule on accessorizing with color? This is fascinating, and you look awesome!

  7. Cute! I heart Target. 🙂

  8. Phaedra and Apollo.

    You’re my favorite, Holly.
