Minimalist Wannabe

I’m truly on my way to becoming a minimalist now, because when I looked at this outfit again, I immediately thought “Too much.” Am I crazy? Between the stripes, the leopard prints, the lace, and the necklace, it definitely feels overwrought to me. Maybe a plain grey scarf and my black flats would be better. Or maybe ditch the necklace and keep the scarf. But I wanted to show off the necklace, and wearing it alone with just the T-shirt looked weird somehow… yeah, I’m definitely overthinking this. I have to remember the “K.I.S.S.” rule next time.

  3. I get what you’re saying, but I actually didn’t notice the lace OR the leopard print. I think those are basically neutral enough that it looks nice and simple and not fussy. But I’m a print mix addict, so… it’s probably just more my taste. 😀

  4. Very cute outfit, and definitely NOT too much!

  5. […] funny coincidence: I wore a very similar outfit exactly a year ago. Except this time my shirt is long-sleeved and my shoes are snakeskin, not leopard. I did think of […]
