Even though I don't think I can call this outfit "monochromatic" (such words are too intimidating, I feel like I need to do some googling before I know I am using it right), I do like how there is some shade of blue everywhere to give a lengthening effect, and what's better than a pair of nude pumps when it comes to appearing taller?

So about this plaid blazer, I saw it at Target shortly before Christmas last year, and to prove how much I loved it: 1. I was 9 months pregnant and it didn't fit anything like it does now; 2. I bought two (one as a present); 3. I also bought the matching pencil skirt bottom (yet to be worn); 4. Normally I would have to have a few outfit ideas in my head before buying a piece, for this I didn't. 

I had been shopping around quite a bit for a pair of nude pumps, my criteria included a reasonable heel height, a not-too-pointy pointy toe, simple but not too simple, and definitely budget friendly. This pair fit the bill perfectly. If I had unlimited budget (they can get pricey!) and closet space, I'd probably collect them ALL:
