Simplicity

FAIIINT Simplicty wishlist - Warehouse Cami, Choies clean slim coat, Kurt Geiger Boots, H&M drape cardigan, Teals Boutique leather laptop bag, Zara asymmetric skirt, Whistles ring, Maria Francesca Pepe spike bangle. All black, minimal, clean, sharp, simple.

Since clearing my wardrobe out recently I’ve been trying to make a real effort to only buy classic, staple pieces that I know I will still be wearing for years to come & it’s lead to me buying an awful lot of very minimal, simple items. Those type of pieces that never seem to date & always look so fresh and modern. I know I’m saying this a lot recently, but it’s true, the older I get the more I’m starting to favour a more paired back way of dressing. Practical items like this beautiful leather laptop bag & more comfortable shoes too, as I find myself buying ever more mid height heels, instead of the skyscrapers I spent my student loan on a few years ago. This pair from Kurt Geiger are my current obsession, they couldn’t be more perfect everyday boots – nice height, chunky heels, classic & with that lovely thick stitching & pull tab to the back.

I usually prefer coats with all kinds of buttons & zips, bikers & trenches, but this super clean one really caught my eye whilst I was browsing Choies. I’m not sure if it’s a little too severe for me, but I think it would be perfect with a drapey cardigan poking out underneath, or over a silk camisole or skirt to contrast against the starkness & make it a little softer.

Another thing I’ve been cutting back on is jewellery, I haven’t been wearing much at all recently, and haven’t brought any in the longest time either. Slowly I’m starting to covet a few select pieces again though. I love how the Whistles ring & Maria Francesca Pepe‘s bangle are dainty, unfussy & yet still interesting enough to make an impact.

    I frigging love those boots! I am the same…I prefer classic pieces to throw-away fashion. Obviously as bloggers we get to play around with things due to working with brands, but with my own money I try to not be compulsive x

    as they say, sometimes less is more..and I too sometimes find myself falling into the minimalism approach.. but when it comes to bijoux..I just adore to have my hands filled with chunky rings and bracelets..makes me feel like a gipsy… anyway..cool stuff.. black’s the best color!

    I love those Kurt Geiger boots, at first glance I had thought oh no, I can’t really wear a heel. But when I read on and looked again, the heel really is do-able. They just look so chic, and with them being taller than ankle it almost gives the impression that the heel height is bigger than it actually is. I love the Choies coat, it’s very unfussy! xxx

    Skyscraper heels… I sold all mine except one killer pair: Dior Extreme Gladiators worn by Carrie in “Sex and The City – The Movie”.

    I’m working on doing exactly the same thing! I need to buy more classic pieces. I have a bit of a thing for camis at the moment, I like the back of the Warehouse one! I can see you in everything Steph! <3

    I feel ya on the minimal front. I’ve definitely noticed my style change a bit. No more arm parties and wardrobes filled with crazy prints and details. My cupboards are swarming in unused fashion jewellery and thin band rings and closet filled with plain white pocket tanks and black denims. I think the whole minimal look is so much more stylish at times and you don’t even need to think about it either. I don’t shy away from bold, statement pieces but if there’s a plain chambray shirt with gold buttons I’ll pick the latter over the statement one any day. Plus it’s cheaper and with the extra money I saved I can invest in another white tank LOL

    Old age, God bless it!
    ;o)
    Have a great weekend Steph,
