Monochromatic Casual Elegance and A Labour of Fashion Link-up.

Hello and Happy Thursday! I am having a very busy work morning today so I will keep this fast and smooth. I am wearing Khaki and Ivory for a Monochrome Look touched up with some Cognac and Green by my Accessories. I love this Ivory+Mint Pearlized Beaded Necklace which in this case matches (a little) the Green Purse, also. Ms. Vivian is rocking a New Gray Sweater Dress (super cute one too) with some Fuchsia Patterned Tights. She was being very funny and at times crabby during these photos.

Most importantly, LINDA from a Labour of Life is starting a brand*spanking*new link-up today and I am her first co-host. I will be co-hosting with her next Thursday also, so please join us. Linda is Fabulous and Fun both style-wise and even more so character-wise. Her outfits are always stylish, trendy, yet feminine and classy. Her blog is a daily read of mine. Her beautiful new link-up is neatly titled "A Labour of Fashion" so put your best fashion foot forward and link up below, pretties!
Vivian is like: "Mom, look, the camera is flashing. And, enough pictures!"
