When you dress in a single color hue, shade, or tint, you are dressing monochromatic. It doesn’t matter which color you choose, it is still monochromatic. It is lighter and darker shades of the same base color. In this instance, my color tone is beige. Probably one of the most boring colors on the planet, and I chose to dress in the color head to toe. Lol!Some fashion gurus would say that monochromatic dressing is boring, that it doesn’t show any creativity at all. I can’t argue that point, it is a relatively easy way to dress. However, I don’t consider this style of dressing boring.
When you choose to stay in one color range, you create a pleasing palette. All the colors blend for an eye pleasing effect. I, (me personally), think that this style of dressing is very classic. You did not see a lot of crazy pattern mixing back in the “good ole days.” I like to look good. Some might not find me on the cutting edge of fashion, but as long as I think my outfit looks good, I am okay with that. I doubt if I am going to be invited to New York’s Fashion Week anytime soon. Haha
I love this Van Heusen embroidered top! I bought it several years ago, but it is still one of my favorites. Here is how I styled it the last time I wore it. But, today I wanted to keep everything simple, just the top and a pair of pants. The top has a sheer overlay of the embroidered design, with a jersey beige/taupe material underneath. Since this is a neutral color, it could be worn with almost anything.
TOP: Tank top | White top | Khaki top | Gorgeous LaceI wanted to wear a Plunder necklace that you might not have seen before. The Olivia necklace is pretty and also versatile. It can be worn long, like I am wearing it, or it can be worn short like a choker. Both ways are nice. This is not a light weight necklace, so be aware of that if you are thinking about ordering. At only $26.00, this necklace is a steal!!! I didn’t wear the matching Paige bracelet since I had worn it here. Instead, I decided to wear the Feather and Pearl bracelet. To order any of the jewelry from Plunder, go to www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens OR just type my stylist number (241007) in the box when you check out.Besides the large pearls, I also like the bronze color of the metal in the necklace and bracelet. It is something a little different than silver and gold. It adds another dimension to the outfit. The linen pants are a pair that I bought at Belk this year. They are by New Directions, I have already worn them here and here, and you will probably see me wear them again this summer. I love linen pants in the summer.
My purse came from TJ Maxx years ago. I only carry it a couple times during the summer, so it still looks like new. It is a linen canvas material with leather trim, and it is by Michael Kors.

Joe and I had planned on going to the Greenbrier Classic Golf Tournament, but because of the devastating floods that hit West Virginia, the tournament has been called off. I suppose we will just stay at home, and possibly grill out. Don’t forget all the wonderful 4th of July sales that will be happening. Lol!
