What's the difference between minimalism and plain boring? Honestly, I don't know. I'm no expert in fashion. I love simple, clean lines without too much accessories, but I'm never sure when it just looks boring?

I thought this outfit was a minimalist one, but then I wasn't sure if it was boring and if I should put it on the blog. I often feel pressured to put more accessories on just because I put my picture on the blog and I don't want to bore readers to death, but it's not who I am! I don't think bloggers need to go over the top with accessories and mixmatching... take for example afterDRK and This chick's got style, two Dutch ladies who I think excell in minimalism.

Minimalism isn't boring, no? What do you think?


  1. Cette jupe est tout sauf boring!!!!

  2. J'adore ce look. Minimaliste ou pas c'est très joli et la ceinture brune est surprenante avec le gris et le noir et ça ne nécessite pas d'autres accessoires.

  3. I think it depends on the effort you put into it. If you are purposeful about being simple it seems like minimalism, but if you just don't care, that's boring??! Anyway I think your look is CUTE!

  4. J'adore!
    Très structuré, et très loin d'être boring.

    I like your explanation, Liz. Outfits can be simple and cute as long as you put a little thought into it. Boring usually happens when you don't make any effort.
