I’ve always liked monochromatic looks; the difficulty and accomplishment in pairing tops and bottoms, particularly those of different brands, textures, and ages, together, and the overall sophistication of the look, which always reminds me of my time living in Italy and the nonchalance and effortlessness that Italian women seemed to possess when dressed mono chromatically. Knowing me, I ALWAYS have to provide for a pop of color somewhere, and love when I find a new color combination that just seems meant to be. I used to be obsessed with mint, but it seems that my color obsession has evolved into a more mature shade of olive. Green is my mom’s favorite color, so it makes sense that I gravitate toward it as well.
My pops of color are provided in a white handbag and lug sole of my shoes, a purple topper, but my newest and most noteworthy, in my opinion, is an orange-red lip hue I mixed together in order to just try something new. I’ve had the shades resting on my dresser, and thought that individually, they weren’t quite me, but together (orange first then red), they were just perfect. I love when those “aha!” moments happen, especially when they are very spur of the moment, like this one was.
