Happy November! I can’t believe it’s November already. I mean, it’s practically Christmas now. People are putting up lights and going holiday shopping already. But before it gets too crazy, I want to share an elegant monochromatic look with you today. I played around with different textures, materials and colors with this look. You have the neoprene peplum top with the cotton lace skirt and finally pink lace-up suede heels. Peplum is classy and elegant no matter how you wear it. The frill and flare gives it such a feminine vibe. Lace is also a very feminine texture as well. And lastly, the lace up heels are a fun and edgy final touch.


Ok confession time…I actually messed up on the shoes. I didn’t try them on before I left the house for the shoot so I was not really happy with the look. I just grabbed them because they were pink (and new) thinking that they were going to look fabulous, but it doesn’t really jive with the whole elegant look. People, please learn from my mistake and try on your whole outfit before you shoot! I usually always do, but never assume that something will look good in your head because what you see may be very different that what you envision.

  1. Oh girl, you know I am loving all of this! At first glance, I wasn’t expecting the pink shoes, but I love that boldness at the bottom! I think it works well. I would totally wear it.
