Fashion Week #1: Minimalist Monday!
Today is Minimalist Monday. Minimalist as in simple, neutral and made out of a capsule/classic wardrobe. I decided to only use the clothes from my wardrobe essentials blog post (check it out! *My* Closet Essentials.) I managed to stick within those ten pieces or so, however I did add some bonus jewelry and use whatever shoes I wanted. Accessories are an affordable way to change up a look.
First of all, I have an outfit staring a special guest, an original Silver Fashionista shirt. I sewed this quite a few months ago but have not stopped loving it since! Now, typically I'd pair this with jeans but you'll be seeing some later. Therefore I have leggings, which are actually jeggings (jeans + leggings = jeggings!) For a bit of spunk I stole my mom's black heeled boots. Fortunately she's always a good sport when her shoes go missing for me to take photos. Last but not least, I have white accessories: a scrunchie, a headband and a necklace. Accessories are always a great way to change up your look.
In my wardrobe essentials post I included two dresses, and this is one of them. I don't know what the material is, but it drapes really nicely. I also love the straps and neckline, which you can't see since its covered up with a warm coral sweater. I love it, except when it comes to dresses where it's just a bit too long and bulky. Don't fret, because I have a life-changing trick for you! Gather the back of the sweater in your hands and tie it with an elastic. Now, just flip that up so it's hidden underneath. As long as your sweater is thick enough, this works like a charm to make a cropped sweater. I completed this look with my gray boots.
These jeans aren't the ones from the capsule wardrobe, however they look essentially the same so nobody will know. My moto jacket is definitely appearing at Fashion Week a few times (here she is!) along with this cute lace blouse. I adore this girly/lacy edgy/leather combination. This juxtaposition is my style. For shoes, play it safe with a pair of flats. My feet aren't this small (I don't have big feet, btw) as these are my sister's shoes and they're the only light/pastel pair of shoes I could find for this outfit. They look good and that's all that matters on the internet.
Tomorrow is Trendy Tuesday. Don't miss it and I'll see you then!
