When I first started blogging, I remember hearing the comment of “your style is so simple.” At first this frustrated me, probably because I heard it in a negative way, not necessarily in the way it was meant. Simple in my mind seemed lame; not exciting or mind blowing or life-changing. But over the years I’ve thought about it and really, that statement is very true — my style is simple. I like simple pieces, I’m drawn to easy styles and outfits that are easy to put together and pull off. I’ve fought this nature many times, thinking that simple can’t be right — there has to be a way to complicate this outfit a little bit more. 

Today was one of those days and of course it happens on the day I’m running late. I stand in front of my closet and ask “should I add [insert a plethora of accessory options here] to this outfit?” My closet rarely answers me, by the way. Sometimes I trip over a shoe or a purse falls and hits me in the face, but never does it answer. But as time ran out, the more I realized that maybe simple was just fine. A belt would add fuss; a scarf can be saved for another outfit when it cools down; different shoes would be nice but these are the ones I’ve got. I guess my closet answered me after all: simple it is.

  6. My personal style is pretty simple as well. As hard as I try to be elaborate I go back to my simple ways.  I like to think of it more as a classic look, so I can look back later and not hate everything that I wore.

  22. I think the simplicity of your style is what makes it feel so accessible, at least to me! Your style is the best part of simple: statement-making simple. May sound like an oxymoron, but I think it's true.

    Also, I am in love with that chevron cuff; may I ask where it's from?

  29. Simple is definitely not the same thing as boring. Think about it…in school did you ever say, "Ugh, I hate math class. It's so simple." No. It was boring but probably not simple. Would you ever say "I might fall asleep from simpledom?" No, because simpledom is not a word. Point is, you do simple style better than anyone else I know of, and we wouldn't all be stalking your outfits if they were boring!

    There's nothing wrong with being simple. There will always be people who want to layer themselves with accessories and statement pieces, and there will be those who can put on a T-shirt and a pair of blue jeans and be done with it. Either way, it is still fashion, and you should never aim to please anybody but yourself. 🙂

  85. I'm glad you don't take offense to the simple thing anymore.  That has always been my favorite thing about your style – it's easy for anyone to pull off with the right pieces from their own closet.  Plus you shop at totally accessible places.  I love me some vintage-wearing bloggers, but I'm so NOT into vintage/thrifting that it's hard to get inspiration from them.  But I always know I can check you out & it's not something too crazy or unwearable.

    AND…I'm wearing the exact same Target tank today.  Twinsies! :o)

    I do love your style and the reason why I'm drawn to your blog and your style is not just the simplicity, but the fact that you choose pieces that I could find anywhere. I have a white tank, a white necklace, and instead of a blue midi skirt mine is green. I'm not able to do that on many other blogs where bloggers use very particular articles of clothing.

    Your simple is excellent. I never thought of your style that way but now I see it and I love it. I need to stop buying "statement pieces" I can't pair with anything.

    Yes! I love what you wrote. I feel the exact same way about my style! Minimal fuss if possible. That's why I love your blog so much. Gorgeous yet relatable but still not really skipping on the spice. I've been a long time lurker for years (totally not creepy at all, right? hahaha) but today I just want you to know, hands down and without a doubt your blog is my favorite fashion blog to follow 🙂

    When glancing at the first picture I thought what a beautiful outfit, then when I scrolled down to the 2nd picture, I thought oh my gosh the skirt has pockets…I love it even more…With my petite size though I would prefer the skirt to be shorter. 🙂

    The simplicity is what makes your style/blog so wonderful!! I feel like I can look at what you wear and find a way to pull it off myself without investing in 900 different accessories and pieces. So inspirational! You make everything look effortless.

    I don't think simple is the right word… chic, maybe. Other bloggers try so hard to be "interesting" sometimes, when what's really beautiful is just a chic, simple outfit. I LOVE your style and the white-on-white. This outfit is so lovely! Keep on being you! 🙂

    I love your style because it is simple. It seems so much more natural. I often feel that some fashion bloggers simply throw on extras for a photo shoot and then revert to simpler outfits. Your outfits are simply beautiful. They look natural and chic, not forced. You should certainly take simple as a compliment. We all must love what you're doing to keep coming back! 🙂

    So true!  As a blogger I always feel like I need to amp up my outfits (because a lot of bloggers do), but then I think all the ampping would make me uncomfortable.

    I feel like we are style brain twins in this post. I am drawn to simple pieces as well, and although I admire and am inspired by those who can make an array of crazy pieces look chic, I don't translate that well into my own daily looks. Less is more, and especially in this post's outfit. I love it. Well played.

    I totally agree! Sometimes it is the negative space that makes the art really beautiful. In other words, less really CAN be more! One last one -paraphrasing CoCo Chanel – when accessorizing, take the last thing off. Great look – I love the blue and crisp white!

    Love your simple style! I love fashion blogs but sometimes I look and think, I could not wear this feather skirt and 20 bangles with 6 necklaces in my everyday life. When I look at yours, I'm like yes I could go to work in this outfit and not be the crazy girl. 

    Where are the bracelets from (particularly the cuff)? I'm in love!

    I am personally a huge fan of simple. Especially in the summer, I mean really there's only so much you can do when it's 100 degrees. Your outfits definitely inspire me to just dress how I feel comfortable and in the trends I like. Your blog is wonderful and hilarious!
