it was definitely one hectic week and even if i am exhausted, i am definitely excited to share what i have been working on. welcoming a brand new month and summer has really kicked in out here in the sandpit. it was a whooping 37 degrees yesterday and shooting outdoors is getting more difficult by the day. i got dehydrated, my head was pounding and my spots started popping up again from all the sun exposure i have been getting. this is life out here in the sandpit at its finest.
why fit in when you were born to stand out…
anyways, lets talk monochromatic. if you dont already know, this is basically dressing up in the same color or shade from head to toe. it can be a bit daunting at first but when you get the hang of it, it is actually pretty easy and fun to work with. plus, you will definitely stand out. i usually pick a shade that i am comfortable with thus the gold/yellow/brown hues with this outfit. just line the pieces together like a simple flatlay and see how well they blend in together as an outfit. texture is a big thing so make sure you mix textures to add depth and contrast. i dont really like to accessorise too much coz it can be overpowering especially if you pick a bold colour like i did so try to keep it at a minimum. you can also try and mix the same shades of patterns and prints but make sure they dont overpower each other. think finer prints for a more subtle look.
so would you dare to try this monochromatic trend? do share your thoughts and other tips in pulling off this look! would definitely love to hear from you.
