Minimalism


Minimalism. It sounds so easy. The word is literally minimal. The least. Very little. Easy, right? Nope. Not for me. Statement necklaces, colors and prints are my safety blanket. It almost feels like it relates back to my personality and drive, I constantly have to be busy - always having more than one thing going on at once. This season is all about minimalism. Shades of grey, mock turtlenecks, simple booties - minimalism is, ironically, everywhere.


 I bought this grey top at Loft a few weeks ago and it's such an easy go-to and seems to fit right in with the minimal chic trend going on. I think it will also be a good layering piece once the temps start to cool down a little more. Overall, this was perfect for a laid back city night to grab a drink or a cup of coffee. Maybe minimalism isn't for me all the time, but I think this will be an outfit I'll cycle through a few times this season.

  5. You look great in this minimalistic look. I love your top. I actually purchased the same top in ivory and black. I wanted the grey as well but they were sold out in my size. It's a great piece. You will definitely be able to use it as a layering piece when it gets colder.

  24. That top is refined and elegant. Really, the perfect minimalist piece! (I have a hard time with minimalism too. I feel more like "me" with a giant piece of jewelry. Haha.)

  28. I love your entire look and like how you pay attention to detail. Every single bit of you just seems so polished-not in a creepy way, just simple observation. Your makeup and nails look stunning as well!

  33. I feel like this is the right time to confess my love to minimalism look like this one, Chelsea :)
    When it's minimal, it looks so much more elegant and neat, I think. You look so so beautiful, btw. It definitely suits you really well hon.
