Casual and understated, with a twist
That’s how I would describe my everyday style. I’m not a dramatic dresser, and I put comfort over everything else. I wouldn’t wear clothes that restrict my movements, or accessories that get in the way. I guess you could say I’m your typical ‘jeans and a t-shirt girl’, as I want my clothes uncomplicated and low-maintenance.
But that doesn’t mean clothes should be plain. On the contrary: the simpler the outfit, the more important the pattern or the colour becomes. If you’ve been following this blog, you know that I don’t really wear neutrals (they really wash me out) and I try to have some colour around my face. And I like luxury accessories that make a statement. Yes, I admit it: I spend a lot more money on sunglasses and bags than I do on clothes…
But I think it’s justified. You see, my sunglasses (or bags, for that matter) are not just a necessity (I have very sensitive eyes) but often the starting point and inspiration for the entire outfit. That is the case here, too. First I decided which sunglasses I wanted to wear, then I chose the sandals and the bag. And then I simply selected a few casual, understated basics to go with them. Well, maybe the t-shirt isn’t exactly understated, but I thought the outfit needed a bit of a twist.
