Wear to the office – Monochromatic look

I was inspired by this post from Marion from Marionberry Style You guys, she has such great style and her Friday posts are hysterical recaps of her life as a school psychologist.  She recently posted this outfit and I immediately started thinking about how I can take this trend to the office.   I decided this look would be office appropriate by using an article of clothing and an accessory.  Here’s what I came up with.

On a side note, I decided to try taking pictures out in my balcony.  I thought it would be a small step towards venturing outside in the real world.  It had just rained the night before and I guess some water accumulated on my neighbor’s balcony upstairs….this is what happened.

Plop!  Water drop on my head! I went back inside.

Top: Joe Fresh; Necklace: Kohls old (similar) Skirt: Banana Republic; Shoes: Target surprisingly comfortable! (similar)

Ha ha! Little UPS post it I forgot to grab

  7. So pretty! You could also try pairing a top with jacket or cardigan in a similar shade for a monochromatic look! Love it!
