{STYLE} Minimalist Ambitions



If there's one thing my style is most certainly not - it's minimalist. I often wish I was a minimalist (at home, in my personal style, and in virtually every facet of my life), but my magpie tendencies always get the best of me. It's hard to resist the temptation of glitter, sequins, bursts of color, and special embellishments; I feel like part of "growing up" is meant to include getting over those things, but old habits die hard. Still, when the opportunity presents itself to opt for a more pared down, sleek silhouette, I jump at the chance to try it on for size - and adding in the little bits and baubles that make me, me (like, say, a faux fur clutch and the temporary addition of lilac hair) help make the idea of minimalism a lot more approachable. This skirt from MYNT 1792 proved to be a major gateway for me - and basically became my uniform while I was traveling through San Francisco and Los Angeles. There's certainly something to be said for aspiring to minimalism, and maybe I'll get there in my next life, but for now, this feels good.

  5. Great outfit. Minimalist to me :) Love the pleats and sheer combo of this asymmetric skirt ever since I saw it. The punch of color of your clutch makes this outfit perfect.

  7. I freaking ADORE this!! Minimalism appeals to me as well, but I just am not able to commit. Though I dabble in it with fashion from time to time.

  9. Ha, me either. Glitz and all that jazz will always turn my head! I love this skirt though and I've been eyeing this bag for some time, such a cute colour. Love your hair like this.
