I used to think when you put together an outfit with multiple pieces in the same color, those pieces had to be THE SAME color. I'm talking the same shade of that one color to a T, and it would drive me absolutely insane! After my Mother had told me multiple times that it did not have to be the same shade, 25 years later I am finally listening to her which I should have done all along (sorry Mom!). I love mixing different shades of the same color in one look. It gives your outfit depth and makes it more interesting to the eye. 

Grey is definitely one of my favorite colors, so putting together an all grey monochromatic look was like eye candy to me. 

How do you like to mix pieces in the same color into your outfits?
