How to create a monochromatic look for fall.

 

Monochromatic looks might feel safe, but when styled correctly they can come off as effortless and chic. I love to play around with colors  in the spring/summer, but in the fall – taupes and brown shades have been more of my jam. 

 

This fun textured skirt is actually a dress. I just folded it down to create a maxi and paired it with this chunky soft sweater.

Why this look works:

 

The cognac pouch belt breaks up the taupe color and adds depth to the look. I stuck with the same taupe shade for my open booties (similar). I thought briefly about adding a hat, but with so much textured fabric happening in the look I didn’t want to overdo it. An easy way to make an effortless look switch to forced is to add one too many accessories.

My thoughts on the iPhone 11:

 

So I got the new iPhone 11 Pro last week and I’ve finally had time to really get to know it. I’ve never really been one to rush off to get the latest and greatest from Apple (I should mention that we have a version ONE iPad. Like from when dinosaurs roamed the earth. We can’t sync it with out computers so the kids just have to watch Kung Fu Panda on repeat when we take it on road trips).

 

I watched videos and read up on the iPhone 11 Pro before it was available to order and I was so impressed. The kind of impressed I expected to be when they released the last version of the iphone (I didn’t upgrade then). If you’ve been holding out for a while..this is the phone to get because of the camera. The quality pictures I can take with my phone are just as good if not better than my DSLR. I use my phone constantly for work and I film a lot of jobs with my phone, so I really wanted to have top of the line video. The wide angle camera lens makes it so much more convenient for taking group selfies.

    • ahh! You can do it! You can wear it right on your natural waist, or slightly lower. I love that this bag is smaller than the other ones I’ve seen. Much more subtle, I like that.

  2. You mentioned in your monochromatic look you just folded the dress down? How does that work?

    • So the skirt is actually a maxi dress with a strappy top, but the waist is elastic. So I just folded the top straps under and pulled it up at the waistband and it looks just like a skirt!
