marvelous monotone.

While in Paris this summer, I noticed countless women sporting "monotone" looks. For Friday's Fancies this week, I decided it would be fun to play out this look en masse. To get inspired, I picked a few of my favorite looks and expanded on their color palettes.

This outfit may not have fifty shades of gray, but this lovely lady rocks a few shades of gray to a tee.

Everyone's favorite blogger, Blair, nails the monotone look by picking hues in the same color
family and then incorporating a few other fabulous pieces to knock this outfit out of the park.

Samantha is as pretty as a peach. This ensemble proves just how well monotone really works.

Pulling together this post made me feel even more confident that I must try this look soon!
Trying it out for Friday's Fancies this week may just push me over the edge ;)
