Less really is more
So much has happened these past few months, and let me tell you, it’s been amazing! We’ve ditched New York City for a place in the country, and it’s been nothing short of amazing.
Even though we’re only here for a few months, the changes in our lifestyle and stress levels have shifted dramatically. In New York, we’d rush to every single place, weary of strangers, and use extreme caution when leaving the house after 9 pm.
Things are different now. We take long walks, greet our neighbors, and smell the greenery while sipping our morning coffee. We’re going to miss this experience for sure, but very grateful to have had the opportunity to experience it this summer.
After this, we’re headed out to a more suburban place and very excited for that journey as well; more on that next time –but you’re here for the outfit!
Lately, I’ve been feeling so in my skin by wearing less of a lot of things. Does that make sense? Fewer accessories, light makeup, and focus more on simplicity. Uncomplicated colors, such as blue, nudes, and white. More of a natural feel. I’m also focusing more on investing in slightly better quality and less fast fashion items.
Top: Banana Republic, white linen, small. Not sure if they still sell this, but here’s a similar one.
Bottoms: Levi’s 711 Skinny, size 2 (26 European) 69.50 USD –but I’ll be honest, these jeans turned into a tourniquet after a few hours; a size 4 is probably best. Yep, they’re stretchy.
Accessories: The two small rings are from my mother; I don’t know where she is, but it makes me think of her. My watches are almost always by the German brand Kapten & Son (similar to my watch); I gravitate towards the clean look.😊 My necklace was a gift from my boyfriend’s family in Germany; I love it so much! The gold and teal ring was from Tuscana, Italy. It’s so sturdy, elegant, and simple, which I’m digging. If you’re ever traveling, find cool pieces to take home with you.
