Monochromatic outfit of the dayMy cold weather wardrobe is made up of mostly monochromatic black and gray pieces, to the point that multiple people have commented on it. I love warm weather so the colder months always feel like a bit of a mourning period for me but really I’m just lazy. If I have a stack of black and gray pieces, it’s easy to grab a few and throw them on in the morning- they always match! Take this outfit for example. I wanted to wear these leather leggings and this sweater is one of my go-tos as soon as it gets a little chilly. I added a tunic for some extra layers and some bright white sneakers for a fun, sporty feel. It probably took about 15 seconds to pick everything out and I thought it looked really cute.

Colby June Silver Sunstone Drop NecklaceYou’ve seen me wear these sunglasses from The Row a bunch and that’s because I love them so much! Not only are they gigantic (I love sunglasses that cover half my face) but the arms are covered in leather. It’s such a fun twist on a classic shape. I also really like these earrings from my latest Rocksbox. They have plenty of sparkle but they’re comfortable enough to wear every day, which is what I’ve been doing.

colby june jewelryThis Sunstone Drop Necklace from Colby June arrived the day we took these pictures and I couldn’t wait to wear it. I love her jewelry and each new piece I get is better than the last. The sunstone is such a pretty peach-pink and the teardrop charm makes this delicate piece stand out. It goes perfectly with my Bands and Twig Ring Set that was a Christmas gift from G a few years ago.

In fact, I’m already planning on using elements from this look for other outfits- the sweater + tunic combo with jeans or tights and booties, the leather leggings and white sneakers with long tees… the possibilities are endless when all of your clothes are the same color.
