Ombré shoes

The Allure of Ombré

Just the word itself sounds alluring and intriguing. Ombré is a French word meaning "to shade" and is often used to describe a dip-dye effect given to fabric in which the shades of color graduate from light to dark. The most sophisticated look is based on a monochromatic color scheme, but three different complementary colors can also be combined. The look is all about color, with the feeling an artist has dipped and shaded the colors by hand.

Todays Style Challenge was Jacket Up ... my interpretation for the challenge of the day is this leopard print cardigan in place of a jacket, that I wore for a brief time on Monday.  I saw it last year and had considered purchasing it, however I felt it was a little pricey but I did like the wool of the knit.  I saw it last week on the Truworths sale at 75% and felt it was too good an offer to pass up.

These are one of my most favourite pairs of shoes in my closet ... I adore the ombré effect.

I just realised now that I should have worn the other ring Taryn gave me as the stone is a very similar colour to the yellow stone in my bracelet. 

I do hope you're having a fabulous and stylish day.  Do say Hi  :-)
