WIWW: Shades of Brown


2014-07-27 12.34.05

I´m wearing different shades of brown in the blog today. This is called monochromatic dressing and I think I´m becoming an expert at mixing and matching different shades/hues in the same color range. ;) When you´re vertically challenged (like yours trully), this one color dressing styling tip can elongate the body and also for someone who likes to shop/dress in color phases( like yours trully, again), it´s the perfect way to maximize what you have in your closet. It´s like a ¨bring it all out and show them what you have¨ mantra without feeling overdresssed, know what I mean? I know a lot of women who do this with bling but I prefer to do this with clothes, hahaha!

Anyway, the only thing that I should´ve have never included in this outfit is the floral necklace. Pardon the fashion faux pas (yep, that´s French which really means ¨ you missed  this one, girl! ¨, lol), I´ve forgotten that my top´s colored neckline doesn´t need much decorating, hahaha! Just when I thought that I could pat myself in the back for creating the perfect outfit in five minutes flat, the necklace ruined it all, eeeps.

Well, it´s another dressing up lesson to learn today. Never wear a colored necklace on a colored neckline( unless you´re trying to mix print your neckline with your jewelry) or if you must, wear a long chain in plain gold or silver and that´s it.

Love how you've brightend up the brown with a turquoise necklace.

On the other hand, the entire outfit is definitely a HIT! Love it that you can be real with yourself about your misses though. You are still gorg, so it doesn't hurt you. :)

Love the turquoise against the camel!

I like the touches of blue - and in the first photo, the necklace actually looks like part of the neckline, so it really works there! :)
