A monochromatic look is such an effortless way to look sophisticated and chic when you dont want to put any thought into your outfit. I didn't feel like putting much thought into anything this day, so i grabbed my favorite shirt dress, added a simple blue belt to define my waist, and my blue wedding shoes to play up the color scheme. Now notice all the shades of blue are not the same. When going for a monochromatic look the clothing and accessories do not all have to be the same color. If they are it steers more towards being to matchy matchy, which in this case we do not want. The rhinestone necklace added the perfect amount of glam, and the clutch added a bit of pattern. I didn't want to use any other accessories except for a subtle red lip in order to keep the focus on the monochromatic look. I loved how this look turned out. I think next time i will go for red!

Happy Friday!
