It feels like so long since my last post in this series! I feel a bit embarrassed, coming up with my own blogging challenge then taking a very long time to complete it…but what can I say, there were lots of things I needed to post in April! But oh well, I’m here now, exploring my wardrobe ^__^
The fourth prompt in Around Your Wardrobe in 30 Coordinates is monochrome. Now, I could have gone solid colour monochrome with an 100% black outfit, but black photographs terribly, so instead I wanted to run with brown. And because I’m me – fawn fur.
For this coordinate I wanted to use a whole lot of mis-matched fawn fur and go in a bit of a cute direction, despite the foundation dress leaning more classic than sweet. And I think I did a pretty good job. I love that I’m using fawn fur from three (maybe four) different sources and it still all looks nice together.
It was weird for me to not add more flowers to a floral but I really enjoyed running with bows as the secondary motif. Bows are such fun to add to everything!
I also really loved getting to pull out my fawn fur gloves for this coordinate. They are so cute, and so ridiculous, I love them.
The only thing in this outfit that breaks the monochrome is the bag. But that’s okay, I’m not a person who gets fussed over having bags that match completely. As long as they gel well aesthetically, which this does, it’s fine by me. I mean, sure, it breaks the monochrome “rule” of this prompt, but I didn’t have anything that matched properly! And of all my not-matching handbags, this one worked the best.
All in all I love this outfit and I really, really want to wear it sometime soon!
