Style Challenge – #MonochromeMonday!

Posted on: September 29, 2015 by Yummo Mummo

I am so grateful for my readers, and obviously you are reading for a reason. What that is, only you know. But for whatever reason, I wanted to give you the chance to join me in a #stylechallenge. And the #stylechallenge is #monochromemonday. So starting next Monday 5 October,  post me a picture of your fabulous monochromatic outfit and put it on my Facebook page. Not already a friend? Add me on as Melissa YummoMummo Menzies. I have a public page and it’s all yours for the sharing with me. Not on Facebook? Email your photo to me at [email protected]

So what is Monochromatic? According to Wikipedia : “Monochromatic colors are all the colors (tints, tones, and shades) of a single hue.” I have shown you a tonne of examples from my own participation in this #stylechallenge through social media.  Clearly my monochromatic choice was black/grey/white.




Jogger pants are NYDJ from last Fall, I wear them A LOT. Elastic waisted and oh-so comfortable. The striped shoes were from Target about 6 months ago. I can’t begin to tell you just how many outfits I have paired these striped shoes with. Who knew striped shoes could be so versatile? They make my feet feel happy!



The Aida Tassel Chandelier earrings are available through me. The tassel can be clipped off for total versatility


The Natalie necklace is absolutely one of my favorites. Turn it over for a pop of blue. The leather detail is tres chic! Goes perfect with a monochromatic look.


More of the Natalie necklace, see caption with picture above. This was an outfit I wore to meet a very important mover and shaker, Taryn Brumfitt of the Body Image Movement. I am a Global Ambassador for them and an advocate for positive body image. #honormycurves I loved a chance to wear my cheetah heels in the daylight, so much fun! Waverley Petite Perf in Tan/Black from Stella & Dot (I used it as a clutch). Add the strap for cross body.


Wanting a delicate ball chain to create your own story? I have chosen the 30 inch chain and popped on the key charm as this represents the key to my passion – that is YummoMummo. Along with that, my birthstone for June. Even I don’t want a statement necklace day, everyday. Aida Chandeleir earrings shown.



My Mox shoes USA. These shoes got me through my whole summer and I watched every cute pedicure I had through the weave design. And look, there’s those striped shoes again!!!!!!  

So calling all fashionista’s! I am so thrilled to do this #stylechallenge with you. So please add me at my public Facebook page as Melissa YummoMummo Menzies so I can see your #monochromemonday marvelousness.  I will do a round up each Tuesday on my Facebook page. Monochormatic it as much as you want, it could be as simple as a pair of shoes (see my striped shoe example) OR go the whole mile, totally up to you! Yay, I AM SO EXCITED TO SEE!.

      Your correct, these striped flats are very versatile and I have pulled them into dozens of outfit combinations. Who would have thought? LOL.
