Monochromatic with Lavender

March 7, 2017


monochromatic with lavender- early spring outfit inspiration from M Loves M

You know you’re excited about spring when you can’t wait to break out the floral and lace dresses! And then you do on a day that it ends up raining and is so incredibly cold. Of course! I was determined to wear this gorgeous lace halter dress, though, and decided to add the one coat I bought this winter. It’s really been the only one I’ve needed. {It’s my go to with sweaters and jeans}. At first I wasn’t sure if this was too matchy matchy but I think doing monochromatic with lavender works. A good trick to monochromatic looks is to choose different textures so it looks a little different. I remember back in the day I did a lot of monochromatic posts. I almost thought I’d make it through the whole rainbow! {here’s a blast from the past!}

I hope you all are having a great week! We’ve had a couple chilly days around here but apparently it’s shooting up to the 80s later this week. We have had the weirdest weather! I’m going to a Mommy & Me with Augustine today and I’m excited. It’s only our second week but it’s nice to have something to look forward to! I like learning some new developmental things to work on, seeing Augustine interact with the other babies, and being able to chat with other moms going through similar stages. Plus it’s a nice opportunity to get out of the house!

Have a great day everyone and thanks for stopping by!

    Oh yes, the weather has been up and down in Finland too, for a few days very chilly and then for a few days very nice and sunny.
    I have no idea what or how to dress up anymore, heheh. 😀
    You are looking incredible in this outfit Mara, your dress is so dreamy and those shoes add a chic touch to the classy look.

    Lavender is such a beautiful colour and really suits you Mara. I love lace and that dress is just perrrrfect 😀

    The lavender color is beautiful! The lace dress and coat are gorgeous!!

  • The lavender looks so pretty and I love the look of both. I’m thinking of doing the same but with blush pink.

  • What a beautiful dress! The lavender color looks so good with your skintone, too, and the monochromatic works really well. I live in London (although originally from the US), and our weather here has been insane — cold, hailing one minute, bright sun the next, essentially blog-photo-shoot’s worst nightmare 🙁 Glad you’re getting some warm weather your way!
