inspiration: spring cleaning

black
whites


I'm generally a get-straight-to-the-point type of gal. I like simplicity and being easy-going. So why not translate that more into my style? Now, don't get me wrong, I do enjoy my slice of ambiguity and all things crazy, wild, and wonderful; however, sometimes a clean, crisp, and simple style really hits the spot. 

I've been completely inspired by the monochromatic and minimalistic look lately; and I want to adopt a more minimal style: one with less fuss and simpler pieces.  Sometimes I get lazy with my style, yet I still want to look put-together, so I end up forcing myself to think long and hard about compiling a good outfit. By incorporating more basic items into my closet, it will be easier to just throw on something quickly and still look pretty darn put-together. 

This doesn't mean I want to cut out all color and pattern from my wardrobe; I just want to mix in more basic colors (black and white), classic pieces, and simple silhouettes. The details count: tasteful cutouts, strappy detailings, and different textures and layers can add more character to otherwise basic pieces. 

So I guess it's time to save up some cash for a new wardrobe and do some spring style cleaning.

  1. Beautiful collage! So minimal. I'm feeling the same way lately. I feel like my wardrobe is not at all up to its potential.

  4. mmm, I agree with your sentiments for a minimalist yet put together style, and i really like this collection of clothes. I'd like to do something similar, but my wardrobe has been primarily black and neutrals for a long, long time and I'm thinking of incorporating a lot more color. These items are really inspiring to get an idea of basics to add to my own wardrobe :)

  6. I'm totally feeling the same way. I have next to no neutral pieces and so much old clothing that needs to be donated! Good luck on your wardrobe endeavour!
