The Fancy Minimalist

Rushed Wrap Dress in Jersey Crepe - Asos Curve | Sally Wide Fit Pointed Heels - Asos
Harmony Statement Necklace - Aldo Accessories

I decided to tap into my inner minimalist for this week's blog post. I fell in love with this Asos Curve rushed wrap dress as soon as I spotted it! The cut of the dress is simple and understated with a high neck and rushed detailing for a defined waist. The part of the dress that really spoke to me, is the wrap front and front slit to show off the perfect amount of leg. I paired this dress with simple nude pumps with criss cross straps that mirrors the wrap front detail of the dress.

Dressing Up Simplicity

Midrise Jean in Paulo Wash Blue - Asos Curve | Shell Pink Laser Cut Out Hem T-Shirt  - New Look
Wide Fit Stone Chunky Strap Metal Block Heel - New Look

For this week's post, I decided to take a little break from the patterns (I know - stressful right?) and challenge myself to keep it simple. Nothing emanates simplicity in an outfit better than a pair of great fitting denim jeans and a t-shirt. The first way to dress up a simple outfit is to look for basic pieces that have subtle details, such as the laser cut out he on this New Look t-shirt. This turns a relatively simple piece into a focal piece in the outfit.

Stripes, Florals & Polka Dots

Full Midi Skirt in Summer Floral Print - Asos Curve | Bardot Neckline Top in Stripe  - Asos Curve
Spotty Clutch Bag - Asos | Lilac Croc Ankle Strap Heels - New Look 

At this point, I think that I've proven how much of a love affair I am in with bold prints. The number of patterned kimonos and sundresses I have in my closet is both impressive and slightly worrying. This time around, I've decided to see how far I can push the pattern mixing line! Stripes and floral print are both 2015 summer trends and I have seen so many variations of them being combined in one outfit. I decided to try the same while adding my own personal touches.
