I'm Not Confused, I'm Well Mixed

I used to wear a lot more mixed prints in college and even wrote a few articles offering tips on how to wear them for various websites, but I haven't worn the style much lately. It isn't a conscious decision, I think my more minimalist tendencies have just come out more through the years. I'm trying to get a better lock on my style lately--well, more than usual. I mean style is this constantly evolving target; as soon as you start to figure out how you like to look some aspect of your life changes and you need to adjust. You suddenly feel "too old" for certain pieces or all those pretty blouses you had for your office job feel too stuffy in a new creative position. I've hung on to many pieces for sentimental reasons or because they were in good condition and now I'm having to think very hard if they're worth paying to move across an ocean...It's a good thing I've moved around often enough that clothes are my main concern. I have no big pieces of furniture or loads of knick-knacks to pack up--just books, vintage magazines, and loads of dresses!

Outfit details:
ASOS jacket (old, similar)
vintage skirt

I've always loved mixing prints, but lately I've fallen into a more minimalist style, too. I think it comes and goes, for me anyway, with the seasons. The more layers I wear, the more prints I wear. Or even stages of life; right now it's whatever is easiest to put on and is most baby-proof.
You look fantastic! I adore that skirt so much!

My husband and I have been planning a cross country road trip/move. Of course the biggest thing on my mind has been my wardrobe! It goes without saying that I'll only need practical items while on the road, but once we get there I'll be happy to have some of my quirkier pieces too. The hard part is figuring out what to keep and what to purge.... I've already done a pretty large purge but there's still a lot more to go! You have the cutest wardrobe - best of luck deciding which pieces you'll be taking with you! Will your blog be turning into a minimalist fashion blog? ;-)

@Marine, Thanks--good luck on your road trip. I've had a few cross-country moves and the drive across is one of my favorite parts. And no, I'll never run a minimalist fashion blog. I like minimalist outfits, but I don't want a minimalist wardrobe. I believe in balance & budgeting, but I love clothes and my style is too varied to cut things down to a limited color palette or number.
