OUTFIT / maxed out

Apologies if my choices in clothes have become minimal and mature. You haven't seen any printed shirts and crazy boots lately, no?  Ive been keeping and repeating favorite pieces , less styled. I was in a crossroad: to wear a green KENZO jumper or choose purity and wear a button down white shirt. So I chose the latter. It's true that blogging made me excited in showing my new purchases before: A pair of  new studded boots,  ripped jeans, leather jackets, etc until the feeling of "what to put in my blog"  changed. From showing it translated into expressing: This is me , this is what i wear.
 I enjoy trendy clothes too from time to time but I'm a rabbit and my usual reflex is to retreat and hold back. When everything begins to look like a carnival , I scoot and stop. The shopping , my growing closet and shoe rack, the online purchasing, the undying wishlist became too much. All of a sudden the weather condition, mood , activities and age  synergistically influenced me to downgrade a bit. But I've always stressed here in my blog the importance of feeling good in whatever you wear. The same feeling for this maxi coat. This is an essential piece and it makes me feel like I belong from  Jil Sander's army...

  3. I totally get you. I also had this phase where i had to buy everything that was a bit 'on trend', but in the end i only wore the items 2/3 times. Such a shame, so i decided to (mainly) invest in better pieces. This works way better!
    And don't worry, you're still looking amazing! Your shoes are the best!

  4. I enjoy you in this element. Such simplicity is always so stunning, at least from my perspective. This style requires a different kind of admiration than opulence, a shift in perspective really. It'd be easy for me to label this as more organic, but I think it's truly an exercise in restraint.

  6. I really like this look.

    I've found that there are a select few pieces I always want to reach for. It's a good knowing that you've invested in an item that gets worn countless times but still gives you the excitement of wearing a new piece regardless.
