I don't usually wear monochrome tan outfits, but prefer to pair the neutral with bright colors. However, in a fit of early-fall madness, I decided to go monochrome-a-go-go today. It was especially fun because I'd been recently inspired by some of my favorite fellow fashion bloggers posting fall outfits in shades of pumpkin and brown.

So, I slicked on some orange lipstick and piled on the orangey-brown.
By the way, here's a tip. If you want to wear flesh tones without washing yourself out (though, to be perfectly honest I sometimes think washed out looks pretty - call me crazy, but I do) then you should go a few shades darker or lighter than your natural color. For example, the dress I'm wearing, which is still in the flesh tones family, but isn't so close to my natural skin color.
P.S. I usually don't get all matchy-matchy, but sometimes I can't help it, (explanation here), and when I do dress matchy-matchy, I go all out. This means that, yes, my underthings are also leopard print today. It just makes me feel ultra pulled-together and a bit retro.
