simple is the new black

Happy Thursday loves!

Karl the Fog has paid us a visit recently which made me go back to black.

None of the items featured in the post are new except for the pink lace shirt. In fact, they’ve been with me for awhile. Here’s a couple posts where I restyled these items: here and here.

Today I wanted to briefly talk about the beauty of keeping your closet simple. A lot of people ask me why I wear so much black even in the summer. First, I’ve always loved black, it’s such a sophisticated color. Second, during my NYC days, the fashion definitely rubbed off on me. Lastly, if you keep your color palette simple, it’s so much easier to match your clothes and create so many more different looks with less clothing.

TLDR; you don’t need an entirely new wardrobe to create new looks. Sometimes recreating from what you have is so much better. Not only you’re consuming less, you’re challenging yourself to get better at thinking different to create new looks with what you have.

Simple is everything.
