This week, I’m wearing colour. No big surprise there. I love colour and wear it all the time. However, this week I’m joining my bloggy Gorgeous Girl Vanessa from Style & Shenanigans for the #SNSCOLOUR Challenge 2015.
A week of wearing a different colour tone every day. I tend to wear two colours together – maybe with an accent colour too. For this week of #SNSCOLOUR, I’m challenging myself to wear one colour in different shades.
First cab off the rank is Shades of Grey. I’ve read the book, have tickets for the movie, and now I am wearing the wardrobe.
I’ve teamed a Country Road charcoal marle maxi skirt with a DECJUBA eagle print racerbank tank in a washed out dark grey.
I’ve accessorised with more shades of grey. I’ve tied a vintage pleated chiffon scarf as a hairbow, added polished silver New Zealand sixpence earrings, an Uberkate Fine heart necklace and a sterling silver, white crystal and grey-green Mimco bangle. I carried a grey leather Mimco ladybag.
I always need a pop of colour – I just can’t help myself! I’ve added mustard cork wedges from Zomp Shoez because a maxi skirt often needs a little solidity on the shoe front. Oh and I’m a bit on the short side. Plus grey and mustard goes together so beautifully.
The jersey maxi skirt features a fold over waistband, with a gathered skirt so it falls beautifully and swishes as I walk. It even has pockets. Love that!
The grey on grey and volume really needed a belt to break it up a little and define my waist. I’m all about waist definition. I cannot remember where I grabbed this metal plate belt from. All I remember is that it was very very cheap. The short length of the metal plate works like a panel to visually define my waist, adds a bit of badass ‘tude and is super comfy to wear.
