Simple Lines

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind for me. Between fashion week and non-fashion related stuff, most of February has been a blur. I have been trying to reorganize my house, my office, my closet, and everything in between. In a constant state of purging these days. I have been trying to rewear, reuse, and make use of the things I love until I can’t look at them anymore. This rings true for furniture, my clothing,  books, kitchen utensils, basically everything. On the fashion side, I find that the pieces that fit me the best and have simple lines stay with me forever. I am enamored by all the fashion shows right now in Milan, but am more than ever inspired to remain true to my sense of style. I know that white shirts, black pants, and jackets with simple lines look the best on me.

Simple Lines

I don’t necessarily abide by this book, but leaning towards pairing down. I more or less don’t need anything, I just want everything new. Don’t we all. The reality is, wear what you love, live in it. Pay no attention to things that don’t bring you joy. I am really focusing on what I am good at, what I look good in, and helping others do the same. I have tried to eliminate all the toxins in my life; in my food, my friends, in almost everything you can think of, and it filters down to what I wear. If I feel good in something I am going to wear it. If not, out it goes. I look at all of the ruffles! The prints! The big voluminous skirts!  And I want to buy them. But then I stop and quickly realize that I can admire them from afar. Not everyone can wear those things, and not everything will suit my small frame. And I have learned to accept it. The biggest step of all.
