I always feel I can't get monochrome right ever, because I cant avoid color at all times. This is an old outfit that I was saving for later. What I like about the picture is the backdrop. Its taken near a construction site with a freshly painted wall. The wall looked good enough for this outfit. Like you all well by now that even if I go monochrome, I cannot be totally one color. Hence the pop of color, which is a very quintessential part of my outfits. The multi-string pearls add that little touch of sophistication to the whole outfit.
