It's time for Everybody,Everywhere and this month's theme is monochromatic. 
 I immediately knew what I wanted to wear for this challenge.
I have had this outfit idea in the back of my mind for awhile now and
 this was the perfect time to try it out.
I love the casual feel of the t and sandals with
 the "fancy" pleated skirts.
It just says summer ease to me.
I added a pale pink necklace and a bright pink ring just to add different layers of pink.
I usually am never pleased when I try a monochromatic look,
 but I really like this one. 
 It actually looks like the picture in my head. :)

Are you a fan of monochromatic?

I almost have an identical pink striped top from Gap- so cute! That skirt is just beautiful, love the bright colour and the pleats. That last pic is too fun, reminds me of Mel from A Working Mel's Closet.
