style change + minimalist outfit

simpleness-outubro-2simpleness-outubro-2-b This is one of the outfits I’ve been reaching for the most for this only reason: comfort. Also, I love to pair jeans and sneakers!

You know I usually don’t wear accessories, but if I had to choose one to complete this outfit it would be a long and minimalist necklace. Maybe this is what is missing to make this outfit a bit more feminine.

Anyway, this is the way I would dress for a date with my husband – we generally go to coffee shops, bistros or burger and pizza nights 🙂
I realized I’m so into comfortable pieces and I guess you can tell by my outfits haha More sneakers, less heels (except for my ankle booties which have super comfortable heels!).

I’m wearing more neutral colors, as you noticed, and I also stopped with all the floral prints – not that I don’t like them anymore, but I wore them a lot and I figured that maybe I’m a bit tired of too girly outfits.
I still own a lot of pieces like floral dresses, skirts, but I’m looking for a way to bring them into my current style (which is more… neutral, I guess?). Maybe, I can layer them with a cardigan or wear other kind of shoes (not ballet flats) – which are very romantic. What do you think?

Any ideas? Please send me your suggestions!

uniform – part 4

This is my last “uniform” post. I guess now I have a good idea of what I want for my wardrobe from now on, and I will explain why I chose this outfit for the last one.

1º) These black skinny jeans were one of the pieces I was missing in my closet, and after I bought them I can’t help but using them everytime. I love the way I can use it all day long and at night too – it fits several occasions. I am officially in love!

2º) I love how skinnies are versatile with different kinds of shoes: sneakers, booties, flats, slip-on shoes… I’m not so into using sneakers with straight or boyfriend jeans – it feels very slouchy, personally, I don’t like it. I also love the skinny jeans because they have a more feminine appearance, so if I wear the sneakers the final result is very interesting – feminine and sporty at the same time. But, this time, I chose these booties because it’s chillier and I wanted to show you that these jeans can be worn without rolling.

3º) I really enjoy this “fitted + slouchy” proportion we can accomplish using the skinnies. I can wear a flowy top with volume (which is what I am wearing the most, considering I don’t like to wear very tight tops) plus a cardigan or a denim shirt, and the skinnies give the slim proportion at the bottom. I don’t usually wear “fitted + fitted” or “slouchy + slouchy” outfits, that’s why I believe this whole outfit worked really well. Pluuus, the third piece (denim shirt) is fantastic because I can take it off anytime if it gets warmer 🙂

Have you noticed that I also kept my shirt’s sleeves buttoned and gave them a roll? It’s a trick I do everytime!

So, big wardrobe wrap up – considering what I’ve been using a lot lately:
1) Skinny jeans and flare jeans
2) Neutral button downs
3) Neutral tops and tees (grey, striped, white and black ones)
4) Neutral cardigans and sweaters
5) Sneakers and slip-on shoes
6) Booties (yay for comfortable heels!)
7) Short straight dresses

And finally, I guess this I how I define my style: simple, comfortable and practical. I love these formulas that allow me to wear the same foundation changing minor details like: replacing the skinnies with flare denim, the sneakers with flats, jean shirt with cardigans…

Now I want to know from you: which are the pieces from your closet you wear the most?

grey dress + cardigan

simpleness-vestido-blusa simpleness-vestido-blusa-2

Some time ago I told you guys I wanted to post an outfit with a dress and sneakers, but I don’t know why I could never do that. I have always preferred ballet flats for run errands or for work, because I always thought sneakers would be too casual. But lately, I have been wearing these slip on shoes so much (can I consider them as a kind of sneakers? haha). In this outfit I chose the slip on shoes and not the ballet flats or ankle booties, because, you know, me and high heels don’t get along really well… haha And also, despite the heels I usually wear are thick and comfortable, still they aren’t perfect for a full day of activities.

I always like to have an easy and practical combo that fits several occasions in case I don’t know what to wear, and this dress is one of the pieces I wear at these moments.

For example, I could wear it with a denim shirt or jacket, or a cardigan, as in the pic. I could also wear a flat, or when it’s chillier, with ankle boots. Same dress, different accessories = a whole new outfit.

That’s why this is one of the pieces I own that I wear the most – I can set it with many items of my closet.

Do you also have a piece like that in your wardrobe?
