fash•ion (fash-uh n) | monochromatic

On days that are extra gloomy I find myself wearing the brightest things in my closet.  Something about dressing opposite from the weather helps me deal with it better I guess.  Something I rarely do though? Stack the same color on top of each other. This yellow coat was such a great thrift find (a whopping $4), but sometimes I have a hard time pairing it with things.  I'm not one that exercises monochromatic looks, but I didn't think this was too bad.

That coat is AWESOME! I think you could wear it with a lot of things....outerwear doesn't have to match clothes does it? What a great thrift find!

Let me just say, "I want that coat!" It is simply amazing! Love the elbow pads on the cardi too.

I want your jacket so badly. I mean seriously $4? I probably would pay $50 for it.

This look great and the fact that coat was $4.00 makes it even more wonderful.

not too bad? that coat is amazing!! such a fun vintage look & the such a great color on you!! (not to mention I always love a great thrift find like that). I hadn't thought of it before either but I guess I don't usually go for monochrome either.. maybe when I try your recipe I"ll try this- thanks so much for the details on that btw, so sweet of you!

Love the bright yellow! I do the same when it's gloomy outside (or I'm feeling down)!

I wear monochromatic but never thought about yellow on yellow! That's so fun!

Have a great weekend!

xo, sam

P.S. Really digging the new hairdo!

Love the color! You always look so cute!

I actually really love the monochromatic thing. I used to do it a lot more than I have lately. However, I think it is funny we both had the same reaction to gloomy weather this past week: wear bright colors. I wore the brightest yellows in my closet this past Friday just in an attempt to cope. And I can't believe you got that coat for $4. Impressive!
