Ah, ‘less is more’ style. I’ve always admired those women who can put on ballet flats, jeans, and a white shirt and somehow look amazingly put together without trying. On me, this look just doesn’t work: my flats are scuffed and smell like feet (hey, who wears socks with ballet flats?!), my jeans barely contain my butt, and my crisp white shirt has a fresh new ketchup stain down the front. It’s gotta be all or nothing with me: I’m either in sweatpants or stiletto heels, and if I’m in stilettos I’m also in sequins, cheetah print, and quite a bit of sparkly jewelry. Try as I may to keep it understated, whenever I get dressed I tend to end up looking like it was my last chance EVER – and so I wore everything in my closet.
This outfit is my attempt at less-is-more style: a classic chambray shirt and faux leather skirt, plus a pair of dressed-up sneakers. Honestly, I’m pretty happy with it, especially since it’s a lot easier to walk back and forth to my camera in flats!
How do you feel about this? Would you consider yourself a fashion minimalist, maximalist, somewhere in between?
