Monochromania continues! And because I'm in a hurry tonight, here we go. Purple!
It was a very active day for me: my company did their annual "corporate walk" event, which I organized, and I literally ran all over, back and forth, making sure everyone followed the route, got in the pictures, etc. I was dripping with sweat after that!
Plus, it's a super hot day out (I tell ya! Summer is not over yet!), and I got sweaty again on the walk home. Shortly, I'm off to my Tuesday night WW meeting, and then I can relax when I get home around 8pm tonight. A long day. But enough of my whining! Purple!
here, 2nd outfit, with orange!), and there in the first outfit of that link is the last time I wore these awesome lavender Camper shoes.
here). It's a tricky one to style, and the elastic at the waist is all baggy (it's currently safety-pinned on each side to my camisole and my Christian Dior lace half-slip). I'm glad to wear it again, though - it really is a lovely dark amethyst.
Sweater (Kenar, consignment), skirt (Smoking Lily, consignment), shoes (Camper), belt (Plum), earrings (don't remember, but bought them second-hand), key (don't remember), ring/crystal/S (gifts in the 80s from Mom and Dad).
Calling all bloggers! Try a monochrome outfit this week! Any colour you want! Send me a picture (my email is in my profile) or drop me a link in the comments and I'll do a round-up of all the monochromaniacs on the weekend! Go for it!
Yea for purple!! LOVE that skirt! Thanks for the birthday wishes too xxReplyDelete
I do love purple! Those Camper shoes are great, and the skirt (with the minor adjustment) is a beauty. Nice one - though a touch of the grape would have been appropriate for Winesday, no?! xxxxReplyDelete
I love that skirt, and I do hope you have someone more local than I (down here in Southern California) who will fix that waistband for you. (I've been reading your blog for over a year, but mostly via a feed reader, so I haven't commented before.) I also love the Camper shoes, even if they're not Fluevogs.ReplyDelete
Purple is a great energizing colour, the perfect shade to get you through that crazy day. Well done re. organizing the corporate walk. Wine away.ReplyDelete
Lovely purple outfit! That skirt is such a beautiful piece :)ReplyDelete
I gave the monochrome look a try...not sure if it was any good! I will have to email you :)
Ślicznie wyglądasz:)))bardzo lubię te kolory:)))Pozdrawiam serdecznieReplyDelete
Great color. Vibrant and vivacious.ReplyDelete
I love all the purple!! It's such a rich and almost royal feeling color and it's a color that works extremely well on you.ReplyDelete
Lovely colors - those pieces make a great monochromanian outfit! And that reminds me that I never wear my amethyst necklace. Maybe today I'll wear it - with red.ReplyDelete
It's still hot here, too. I think it's been over 80F every day since late May!
We are having our hottest day since mid july today-UGH Come on FALL!!ReplyDelete
That said--you look amazing in purple!! I adore that skirt-could you take the elastic in??
And your jewelry is fantastic--I love amethyst (and why do i not have any? It's my birthstone!!)
Planning my monochromatic outfit for Friday when it gets cooler!!
Beautiful SHeila - I have come to realize that you do have a lot of garments in this color.ReplyDelete
Which brings me to ask, is this your fave color ?
Gorgeous purple-ness! You sound such a good colleague - making sure it all works, everyone takes part, etc. I recently heard about 'pollinators', highly facilitative people who make connections between projects and people - I think you are a pollinator, Sheila! xReplyDelete
Oooh! I've missed that skirt! It's so awesome. I'm loving your monochrome looks!!ReplyDelete
Lovely skirt styled to perfection!ReplyDelete
Wow, what a brilliant week that was Sheila! Thanks for leading me back to this. It seems I cocked up big time with my styling as I misread monochromatic for monochrome. But hey, in the grand scheme of things it's not really that important is it?ReplyDelete
Pfft, don't worry about it - no one noticed, I'm sure, ha ha! Thanks for checking this out, m'dear.Delete
