Minimalist inspired style

Hello my friends!

I’ve taken a few days off from posting to social media and my site because let’s face it, sometimes it gets exhausting. One thing I love about blogging being a side passion is that I don’t always have to be “on.”

This post is inspired by a shoot I did a few weeks ago with other Columbus bloggers. The shoot was fall themed, but I’m pretty sure it was 90 degrees that day [lol]. Can you believe it’s October and Still this warm? I like it, but don’t like it, because I love layering.

I waited until last minute to get ready for this shoot because I was just NOT in the mood to get ready and all done up. I took a page from the minimalist style book and opted for a chic black and white color combo with minimal jewelry and added a pop of color with teal slides. I didn’t want to put makeup on so I wore my favorite new sunglasses and a light pink lip gloss. Sometimes, less is more ladies – and you can STILL look chic. I had to walk to our location so unfortunately I didn’t get as fall-y as the other ladies, but needless to say their fall styles were on point!

What’s your go-to look when your too lazy to get ready?

Monochromatic Minimalism

Monochromatic pieces can create a very timeless and chic look; however, sometimes can be intimidating to style  – especially with the color black. Typically with monochromatic looks, you want to play around with fabric, texture and proportion so that an outfit with only one color can still be interesting. Another option is to keep fabrics simple and add a subtle contrast of color. You can add contrast not only with shoes, jewelry and hand bags, but with nail and lip color as well.

For my monochromatic look, I paired a boatneck top with slacks, leopard print shoes and my favorite minimalist jewelry from a local boutique BOHINDI.

How do you style monochrome?
