Copy Cat Closet ~ Monocrome

First of all, thank you to everyone leaving kind comments on Christie’s post yesterday. I am writing today because she’s obviously been super busy with Bennet & is slowly getting back into things.

Last week Christie did the Copy Cat Closet challenge for you all! If you don’t know what I’m talking about Copy Cat Closet is a little challenge we have each week, usually on a Thursday (this week it will be Friday because of Thanksgiving!), I send out an inspiration/challenge e-mail to all you fine ladies on the e-mail list. (If you’d like to be in the cool club, you can sign up here or use the form below.) Then every Wednesday we meet up here & at The Grant Life  to show off our cute outfits!



This week’s challenge was brought to you by Christie. Doesn’t she look beautiful?? It was monochromatic challenge. Here’s her challenge outfit:

This is a perfect look for the fall. Done right it is adorable, done wrong not so much. Using different shades and tones of the same color family is super trendy and chic. It’s a little tougher than our regular challenges, but that’s good! We’re getting out of our comfort zones, right? Here are some of Christie’s tips to pull off this look:
  • Choose a color family that is soothing, and flattering on your skin tone (ie: don’t do 6 shades of orange!!!)
  • Use solid prints instead of patterns (unless you want to REALLY challenge yourself)
  • Break up the look with a great shoe, belt or necklace
  • Remember you are not going for a “Uniform” look, so try to use DIFFERENT shades of the color.

There you have it! I can’t wait to see what you’ve all come up with!! Link up here and visit a few other people to share the love. If you could grab a button or at least leave a link back, that would be fabulous, thank you!!
