I didn't want to do all black today (which, you know, I could have at least 10 times over from all the black clothing I own!), so I chose to wear all navy blue to comply with Kayla's challenge to wear a monochromatic outfit.

Then, in the middle of last night, I had a flash of brilliance! I remembered I had inherited this beautiful vintage brooch from either my grandmother or aunt -- and it's BLUE! I got up out of bed, went to my jewelry box and set it out so I wouldn't forget it when I was awake. I knew it would add a punch of glamour to this ensemble.
I have to tell you one more thing: up until about three months ago, I would have reached for navy blue shoes to go with this outfit, but today because of all the great tips I've picked up from the style blogs I've read, I knew a neutral tan sandal would look way better. :-)
I think I like monochromatic dressing. I may try it again one day...
