This post is for those minimal but trendy ladies out there. I always love adding easy, breezy outfits to my blog because it’s very likely that you own similar pieces in your own closets. I’m sure you have a grey crop top and denim skirt… and if you don’t, you should because they are all the rage right now. The 70’s styled denim skirt is so popular at the moment, every store has recently came out with their own versions of it. I also see them every single time I check my Instagram. I feel like I belong on a modern day version of “That 70’s Show.”
One thing I do recommend if you choose to be inspired by this outfit post is to LEAVE THE LEATHER JACKET AT HOME. It was 80 something degrees outside and I was close to having a heat stroke while taking these pictures. I just wanted the jacket for dramatic effect but I nearly died. (Exaggeration is my specialty, can you tell?)
shoes: heeled loafers, chelsea boots x 2 (regular, patterned- i just got some cute leopard ones) mules x 2 (closed toe heeled, closed toe flats) original stan smiths / another basic darker sneaker, i’ve been looking @ nike air max thea’s in black, also just got a pair of ivory converse high tops. i haven’t owned a pair since middle school but i had some kind of intuition about picking ‘em up this fall. i need to find over the knee boots that i like but the search continues.
clothes: the basis for me is a LOT of denim, linen & cargo. i’m also reallly just piece shopping; i just (and am still trying to q) cut down my wardrobe to almost nonexistent and from there i want to keep my wardrobe small with new important basics + one or two pieces from each big trend.
As I mentioned in my last post, a number of reasons have led to comfort becoming the greatest of my fashion priorities. Although that may sound blasphemous taking into account fashion’s predilection for suffering (high heels, spanx, and corsets throughout Western history readily come to mind) the predominance of oversized, baggy silhouettes for the past few years has made it a lot easier to look stylish while staying comfortable. With this newfound appreciation of a relaxed style, I’ve come to love natural fibres and classic pieces as well. These are five iconic styles for summer that I’ll be rotating in my wardrobe through the months ahead!
Lots of plus size options everywhere for this summer staple, the denim dress. Even though one of these is a playsuit, I love the oversized style reminiscent of the 90s. Also perfect for keeping cool on those hottest days! This is how I’d style it.
Lightweight, draped jackets have been my greatest discovery in summer layering. They’re so effortless to throw on top of your outfit when it gets chilly (mostly in the aircon right now!) This is how I’d style it.
A tooled leather (or vegan leather) saddle bag is the perfect accessory for that boho summer aesthetic. I’ve been wearing this ASOS saddle bag everywhere since I got it, and it goes with pretty much everything.
I used to stay away from white sandals and shoes in general because they’re just so easy to get dirty! I’ve totally changed my mind, though, after getting my white Birkenstock sandals. Yet another piece that I can wear through the summer! I’ve styled them in quite a few different ways, but this is currently my favourite.
