The Autumn monochromatic look in burgundy

Autumn  fashion calls for awesome layers, rich colors, and fashionable accessories. In this look  I decided to play with the monochromatic trend once again but this time with the color burgundy.

Still trying to figure out the monochromatic look?  
TIP:  To pull of the monochromatic look successfully, try playing with different textures to create dimension and interest all while using a similar color palette .  I played with colored denim and a textured top in this scenario. To make the outfit even more interesting,  I decided to layer a patterned checkered blouse underneath the sweater that went perfectly with the rest of the outfit.

When it comes to makeup I have never been one to experiment with color. I tend to gravitate towards a neutral eye look and go wild with my signature red lip. On the less adventurous days I stick to a neutral lip gloss. 


I was challenged to recreate a makeup look inspired by the beautiful city of Shanghai, made up of rich autumn colors such as green, beige, and black. I wanted to create a look that I could wear on a daily bases and easily transition to night.

AjePomaa Skirt via Kuwala

Yes I did it again! I picked up my cobalt blue shift dress from a previous blog post (link here) and brought it back to life. This time I paired it with this gorgeous AjePomaa  skirt from Kuwala,  at first glance it seemed like an odd pairing. However, with the subtle hints of blue in this skirt it was a perfect match.
