Simplicity

There is a fashion fad I noticed towards the end of 2014... piling on trend after trend in each outfit. Like wearing a plaid shirt, fur vest, big blingin' necklace, sparkly skirt, patterned tights, and leopard heels. Or something to that effect. While it may be fun to dress up like that once in a while, sometimes simplicity is nice, too. I recently posted a photo of a very simple outfit on Instagram-- and I was pleasantly surprised to see the same photo being re-grammed by American Eagle and Sam Edelman, two big companies that I love very much! If this simple outfit captured their eyes, it must be a good thing, right?

I kept it simple by wearing muted colors, and only wearing a couple bracelets. I love layering necklaces and bracelets, but for this outfit I went with minimal accessories. And you know what? It's one of my favorites.

If you're someone like me who really enjoys getting all dolled up, try a very simple outfit sometime! After all, Coco Chanel did say to look in the mirror and remove on thing before leaving the house. Which I believe can be applied to currently trendy pieces as well ;)
