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.
