Monochrome Not Monotone: How to Rock A Single Color for 2018

You guys know I’m no stranger to the monochrome look. I’ve worn an all white outfit for Summer (here), and even a head to toe camel look for Fall (here). I love the way that a single color can make for such a dynamic outfit by mixing various fabrics and materials, and experimenting with silhouettes. This winter is all about deep, rich colors like mustard, navy blue, and olive green. Seriously you guys, this color looks beautiful on every skin tone! Check out how I rocked this monochrome olive outfit for an event recently.

Turtlenecks are one of my go-to wardrobe items in the colder months, I have one in just about every color. They’re practical, comfy, and timeless through every season and trend. I paired this turtleneck with a leather skirt of a similar shade. I love how the classic knit looks against the contrasting texture of the skirt. I warmed up the look with gold accents from my clutch and my earrings, and last minute, switched out slides for these killer red pumps.

    Hi, just wanted to say I really enjoy what you share, I’m only 17 (almost 18, though) and I’ve been following you since I first saw Plane Jane. I finally got your book this christmas, and I’m loving it.
    I’m so happy for you and your new family, I really wish you all the best.
    Also! I’m from Barcelona, so you get to say you inspire people across the ocean and the world.

  • Belated Mother’s Day surprise trip from @mackenziehunkin, yes please! We loved road-tripping with @silvercar and I was treated to a pretty picnic in the orange groves (thanks babes for being the designated driver!) #silvercarpartner #discoversomethingbetter​
  • One of my biggest saving graces during pregnancy and these first few months with Honor, has been having a solid group of mummy friends to talk to. Things can get lonely, even when you're surrounded by people. Which sounds silly but am I right?! It's so important to have someone who's going through (or gone through) what you are, to share your worries with, go to for advice, or just plain vent to. I was so happy to find the @peanut app, which is a social network for meeting like-minded mummies in your area. I've been using their Pages feature to get advice on everything from going back to work, post-natal fitness, and weaning Honor onto foods. I've had some amazing tips from other mums - I wish their new 'Pregnancy' page had been around when I was pregnant! If you're pregnant, or a new mummy, get on @peanut and share your tips with me! #peanutapp
  • I did it! Thank you Queen of color @lorrigoddard_ for making me blonde for the summer
