Happy Leap Year Day! I cannot believe that it is the last day of February, it seems like I just watched the ball drop and we were kicking off 2016.
As of late, the weather has been pleasantly warm and the mild winter has been a refreshing break from the record setting snow falls we have had in Boston for the past few years. One of styling trends that I wanted to try has been the monochromatic look with a color other than black. Monochromatic dressing means wearing separate pieces of the same/similar color in different textures for an overall tonal look. It is a very clean look but can also be as bold as wearing patterns or a bright color.
As you can see here, I didn’t stick to an “all blue” look. Since it was my first attempt with the shades of blue, I don’t think that I was comfortable enough to fully commit to just one color (and that’s okay). I added a pop of coral underneath so that it peeks through the high-low sweater and provides another layer of texture to the ensemble. I also wanted to bring attention to the small pops of color and shapes on the beautiful scarf.
This adorable and fun bicycle scarf was actually from a local boutique, Lifestyles, that my husband and I popped into during our trip to Saratoga Springs, NY. I love to frequent local boutiques. You find the most intriguing pieces in these cute shops since they are curated individually and it adds to the story of your adventure. Shop local when you can!
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading! I hope that you have a fabulous Monday.
