I'm Blue

I've been wanting to try a monochromatic-color look for a while now but haven't been able to because I really didn't have any (non-print) colored pants/skirt/etc.  Well, remember this skirt?  ...And that was the base for this outfit:
Vintage skirt - FC@MJ ($9)
Abercrombie button-down (boys) - FC@MJ ($7)
Rice cardigan - gift from Mom
Bullboxer boots - xmas gift from BF
Belt - gift from coworker
Vintage Dooney&Bourke bag - FC ($40)
Friendship bracelets; personal pendant; earrings - gift

About my outfit:  As I said, the blue skirt was the base of the outfit.  To keep with the blue color scheme I added my pale-blue button down and turquoise-blue cardigan.  The belt was a gift from a co-worker after she saw my embroidered boots (they match perfectly!) and the cross-body bag ties the neutrals together.  I added another little hint of color, just for fun, in a couple of piled-up friendship bracelets.

All around, I was pretty pleased with my first attempt at tonal-dressing.  Blue is not one of my favorite colors though, so I'd love to give it another try with shades of purple, or maybe orange-coral tones.  What do you think?


Do you dress monochromatically?  Which color is your favorite for tonal-wear?


And don't forget: tomorrow is the 2nd edition of the Best Form of Flattery series!  If you missed the inspiration photo, check it out here and be sure to link-up your own inspired look!!!

Looking forward to the link up tomorrow! I like the blue tonal look, but purple would be a great idea. Purple is my favorite color! An orange and rust orange look would be pretty too. Heather

Great outfit! You're right; I love the way the boots and the belt match with the whole ensemble.
