Creme de Menthe

 Hey Loves! I hope you have had a great weekend. I haven't posted in a while, but it was necessary to step away. It has been a great time of rest for me. Mentally and Physically. I am a single mom, so downtime is not something I have a lot of, but I felt the need to take some extended time away from social media.  It was refreshing and a great digital detox because sometimes all of that can be just too much.

I am beginning to explore some of the activities I had been to busy to do before and rediscovering some things I have always been passionate about. The ensemble I am wearing is a monochromatic palette of taupe with a nice sprinkle of color from my mint green shoes. This outfit kind of makes me think of those Andes creme de menthe bars:-)

I love mixing different shades of the same color

Most people associate me with lots of bold vibrant color, but I am a huge fan of neutral colors too because they are so versatile and look good with everything.

This look is very streamlined, so I thought this gold cuff and a statement ring were a great accent without taking away from the outfit

Do you like neutral colors and monochromatic looks?

Have an amazing day!

This outfit is great--I love the mint with the grey. Such a great use of color. I have been down the single mom route--I don't know that I could've even created a blog during those times to kudos to you for all that you do! We all need a break once in a while.

The shoes really are the highlight with the neutral tones of your outfit. I love a monochromatic look because it makes me look so sleek and refined most times. I usually default to black but this taupe is great!

This outfit is everything! I'm going to look for some mint shoes to add to my wishlist. That bag is so pretty. I can fit all of my baby items and camera inside. Maybe I'll treat myself to one for my birthday.

Wow!!! I've never seen shoes in this color before, how unique! Their absolutely stunning! I love how you styled them with a simpler outfit so they'll be the center of attention!

Great look gorgeous!

Stepping away is very much needed. I've done that before and feel like I could be due for another moment real soon. Love the outfit. The shoes gave it a pop of color without it being too much.
