It's Simple

I've come to terms with the fact that I've become completely boring. I love seeing chic ladies on the streets dressed in bright bold patterns, a gazillion layers, interesting shapes. It seems so cool but at the same time, like it would take really long to plan out and put together.

As much as I enjoy the visual effects of those looks, this is what I'm dreaming of these days. Classic, unobtrusive, and simple.

I do like the idea of keeping a little "funk" in there with some animal print, a bling necklace, or red lips but that's about it. Fussy outfits with a lot going on just don't belong in the fall season for me.

1. River Island Blazer
2. Faliero Sarti Frayed Scarf
3. J.Crew Cafe Capri in Herringbone
4. Rick Owens Cotton-Jersey Tank
5. Michael Kors Gia Large Slouchy Tote
6. Madewell The Sidewalk Skimmer in Leopard


  1. I'm the same way; I like to keep my wardrobe simple. I mostly wear black, so most of my colour comes from make-up. I'll rock pretty much any colour on my eyes and lips. In accessories, the only colour I get is really from scarves, though I'm trying to get into the coloured pants trend (I have one pair of red jeggings, which is pretty daring for me, lol!). I am seriously coveting Proenza Schouler's PS1 bag in a midnight blue right now, though...

    My day to day outfit doesn't differ much from yours with the exception of the tailored trousers. I wear jeans most days. Leopard print is so versatile, a great neutral but it also adds a nice pop of texture to a monochrome outfit. I wear my leopard print flats a lot when it's done raining.

    Oh man.....accessories are the death of me. I really want a new purse, too. : ( And good on you for buying red jeggings! I bought hot pink pants recently. Not sure if I have to guts to wear them but BUYING them was the first step. Lol!

    I wish we could wear jeans to the office! Some of the things people wear to the workplace are way more casual than a pair of skinny or trouser jeans. I used to HATE leopard print but I agree, it's a really nice pop without going overboard....I've come to love it. :)

    I love basic shapes and colours! so much easier to dress yourself! I am likely WAY more boring than you- no leopard shoes in my closet!

  6. I love everything here, Lindsay! It's not boring at all. They're the building blocks for every working woman's wardrobe. I love fashion but am a lazy dresser. You've inspired me to pull out my giraffe patterned flats and work a few other things that have been neglected in the closet. :D

  7. Love your blog it is so cute and so many great ideas! Feel free to come check out our blog we are doing our very first giveaway and are so excited about it! Looking forward to more wonderful posts you will have!

    Me, too. The uberbloggers make it seem so effortless but I'm pretty sure it would take me a whole day to look "perfect" like them. BTW, the giraffe flats sound so cute!!

    Me, too! Sometimes I just don't want to think about what to wear to the office. Lol.
