Simplicity

If someone asked me to describe my fashion taste and how I dress, I would simply answer that this isn’t something I could ever put into a few words. Just like the weather (especially European weather, cough) my style constantly changes.
As a person who is really passionate about self-expression through clothing I don’t limit myself to one specific style. Instead I dress differently every day, depending on my mood and what I’m feeling like. To me, fashion provides an incredible opportunity: the opportunity to invent yourself again every single day. I sometimes go through times of combining crazy patterns and just until recently I hardly ever wore jeans. Or any kind of trousers for that matter. Instead I went for casual or crazy skirts or dresses, combining them with hats and tops. Over the last few weeks, that has changed though. And I’m fully blaming Topshop for that or to be more specific, their jeans. They just fit perfectly, are super comfortable and well, I am obsessed with them. And using this word is another thing I usually don’t do. I reserve it for special occasions and well, this is one of them. Topshop has officially turned me into a jeans-lover.
But let’s elaborate on the subject of fashion. Not only am I wearing jeans almost every day at the moment my style has taken on a form of simplicity. I love investing into pieces that allow many different combinations and I love putting together simple but elegant outfits that look interesting without plenty of accessories. Just like I’m simplifying my life, I’m simplifying my clothing. Don’t worry though, my beloved hats will never disappear. I couldn’t bring them to France and I’m already missing them too much. Anyway, let’s talk about my outfit: apart from a pair of Topshop jeans and my H&M boots that you are probably tired of by now I am wearing a grey top that I found at Stradivarius in Madrid. When I first came across this top I tried it on in the wrong size and left the store as it was about to close in a few minutes. Over the next two days I couldn’t get this top out of my mind though so I ended up going back and finally tried it on in the right size. And I’m very glad I did because I love how it’s cut – this transforms a simple piece into a really unique one. Oh and the top was only about 10 Euros, you can’t go wrong with that. To top off my look I decided on a black satchel I had bought at Urban Outfitters a few years ago. Does anyone else have many bags but never uses them? The reason might be that we got our ‘entire life’ in our handbags and that changing a bag is a mini version of changing flats (ladies, you know what I’m talking about right?). I really like the finished outfit and I nearly named this post ‘Back to School’ as it reminds me of my High School days. Anyway, although I love wearing simple outfits at the moment I highly doubt this is going to last forever as at the bottom of my heart, I also love dressing up. So let’s see what happens when I’m back home, reunited with my beloved wardrobe.



What I’m wearing

Top – Stradivarius
Jeans – Topshop
Satchel – Urban Outfitters
Boots – H&M
Do you prefer simple clothing or dressing up? Do you have a ‘specific style’?

  • I actually do prefer simpler outfits for workdays. I don't want getting dressed to be difficult at 6 am! However, I do like to dress up a little more on weekends. πŸ™‚

  • You look lovely! I see why you couldn't get this top out of your head – it's beautiful! Also, my style is leaning towards more simple as well. I prefer simple clothing over heavily patterned ones πŸ™‚

  • Thank you, Leta! Me too, they are also a lot easier to combine. xx

  • Simplicity equals comfort for me, therefore I totally get what you mean by simplifying your life πŸ˜‰
    I just had a discussion with another friend that it somehow also depends on the people around you how much you dare to dress up.. for instance she told me that in her college people are only wearing pyjamas and sweatpants, so if someone was going to class in jeans that was considered really fancy haha πŸ˜€
    Therefore, you rock the simplicity,while still looking put together girl πŸ˜€

    Have a nice weekend!

  • Yes, that's exactly how I'm feeling right now! Haha that's hilarious, I think I wouldn't mind going to that college. But maybe I'd still stress up because I love it – at school I was always the 'dressed up' one as I was wearing skirts instead of jeans. Haha thank you. πŸ˜‰ xx

  • I have no idea what my style is, it depends on the weather, my mood or just what washing I've done! I do like to dress quite comfortably on a daily basis but occasionally I'll try something different. I love the outfit you've got on though, it's definitely something I'd wear.

  • I love the grey top, it's length and cut is so perfect and I'd say a little trendy without being over the top. I love your style and the fact that it can look simple yet trendy x

    I also love your hair too! I love mixing up my fashion sense everyday, I dress depending on my mood and I think it's a great form of expression! Some days I like to dress simple, other days I might dress in fancy prints and colours, I love dresses, jeans, but I also love being lazy and lounging around in a jumper and joggers!

  • Thank you! Haha I completely agree with you it all depends on the day! xx

  • As per usual, I love the outfit hun. Really works well together that top is fab! Definitely a steal at that price too.. Up until last year I hadn't wore jeans for around 6 years; used to wear leggings all the time. Since finding a shop that had jeans that fit me and were comfortable, I've been wearing hem since and luckily they offer a range of selection so I've got a few pairs at the ready πŸ™‚
