I was never into the whole minimalism thing, not even in the ’90s when it was being touted by fashion magazines as the Most Revolutionary Thing Ever. I’ll take my fashion with over-the-top Versace prints and glamazon supermodels, thankyouverymuch.

But when I saw this dress hanging in the back of the closet (which I completely forgot I got at H&M, like, a month ago. How sad is that?) I had the urge to wear it as is–no belts, no bracelets, no scarves, just a shock of color and basic silver hoop earrings.

H&M dress, Champion sports bra, Jeffrey Campbell shoes

I “borrowed” FriendBoy’s socks for color and comfort (shhh), shoved my feet into the remarkably comfy Ugly Shoes, and headed out. It felt simple, uncluttered and…right.

Maybe I’m a minimalist after all.

    I loved the shock of color with the bra “trim” – I think that keeps it from being minimal.

    This look is fly! Even with the simplicity of the outfit – the pop of color paired with the funky shoes and socks makes this look anything but boring!

    The little punches of color are great. Simple, but unique.

    I like you blog.

    Happy Friday,
