I Would Build A Cloudy House

At my sartorial heart, I think I am a minimalist. Pulling on a simple navy dress like this in a sharp silhouette makes me feels so pulled-together and ready to tackle the world. And that is largely why I care so much about clothes: the way they make me feel. A good outfit can take my mood from melancholy to optimistic and my thoughts from scattered to organized. So while this might just look like a plain dress and some red wedges to someone else, to me they carry much more meaning and peace of mind.

  1. Those shoes are pretty incredible and I love your shade of lipstick. I like what you said about emotions with clothing -- some of my favorite closet items are things I bought on my travels -- it's like being able to wear memories all the time.

  6. hello! i just discovered your blog and wanted to say i love it! i also love this outfit and completely agree with your philosophy on clothes - sometimes a dress is just a dress and sometimes it's a reason to get up, get dressed and go out and do something productive.

  14. In my screen your dress looks black, but navy or black it seems amazing to me. Sometimes I like much on my looks, but most of times I'm a minimalist too! And you continue to inspire me in even a better way since I've started reading you in 2008 :)

  15. I already knew that you were a minimalist, but even as a minimalist, you are a maximist in the way you utilize your color palette. You have a LOT of color in your wardrobe, and so few people are able to incorporate it in to a consistent, uniform kind of style.

    I like your style. I wish I could wear dresses every day. I just can't, though.

    I'm getting there though. I have more skirts and dresses than I have both pants, blazers and cardigans. :) I think this is your fault.

    :P

  17. I totally agree. I'm such a minimalist, too. I am all about a LBD and solid heels or flats. Maybe a bit of jewelry. Not much. It's just classic.

    But I really like your nails here, the color makes it a lot more interesting. Makes me want to do mine!

  18. I love your mint green nails! Also that LBD is super adorable!

  20. You should do a tutorial video on how you do your side plait because it always looks so beautiful. I love the red accents in this outfit!

  21. I think you look lovely and the whole outfit is so coordinated! The red shoes go so well with your lipstick and the red lettering on your bag. Your rings are gorgeous too and you managed to get the nail polish to match your ring perfectly!
