Sunday Stye: Soft Monochromatic

Lately I have been wanting to dress more wintery, even though it was in the 70's today.  Instead of Christmas reds and greens I wanted to do something soft and light like snow, and was inspired by my  fog blanketed surroundings this morning for a soft, natural look.  Also, I wanted to experiment with a monochromatic color palette, mixing soft colors neutrals with light metallic touches.  I want to try this kind of look more often!  I hope you like it!  

Shirt (Forever21) Skirt (thrifted) Tights, Necklace, and Shoes (Shop Ruche) Hat (Target, on sale now!)

I was so sad, after I took these photo's my favorite necklace that I am wearing in these photos broke.  It had broken before but I was able to find the crystal piece and get it repaired, however this time, the bottom fell off (different place than last time) and I didn't realize it until it was to late.  I guess it would be silly for me to put up "Lost pendant!" signs everywhere with a little photo of it, but I am kind of tempted because it was my favorite long necklace.  :( And its not for sale anymore, so hopefully I will find one to replace it soon, after grieving time has commenced.  

On a brighter note, I had a wonderful weekend visiting family and having our big Acker Family Christmas Party.  Cohen got an airplane from Santa and he loves it!  Then my sister made me amazing brownies today and that made me feel better after losing my necklace.  I love her!
