In college, some friends* and I got really into dressing in monochrome. It became the theme for all our parties, and we even made Monochrome Monday a weekly institution at school (and by 'institution,' I mean about five of us did it every week). While my days of wearing an entire bolt of tulle to studio are (sadly) over, I still get a kick out of wearing tone-on-tone color combinations (as evidenced here and here); there is nothing that will make you feel quite so striking as wearing a single 'signature' color for a day - and of course it doesn't hurt to pull out your boldest shade of lipstick.
Somehow the end of our time in Paris has completely snuck up on me, and we're leaving tomorrow! I have absolutely loved our time here, but I am (of course) so excited for our next, rather unexpected, destination. It's not a stop we'd originally planned on making, but now that it's imminent I am really looking forward to it. Tomorrow's going to be another looong travel day, made all the worse by the recent additions to my baggage (oof!), but I've got a fresh post scheduled to go up while we're off getting fresh stamps in our passports.
*Yes, my college friends have gone on to be incredible fashion designers. No, I have done nothing cool with my life whatsoever.
