TOPSHOP Jeans, Tee & Jacket / ASOS Heels / ZARA Bag / BANANA REPUBLIC Sunglasses

Just the other day I was thinking how i've reduced my wardrobe to the bare basics and the colour scheme that flows through is that of black, white, grey and neutrals. I like it this way, for now. I feel like as time goes by (and as the season changes), I may pop some colour here and there. But in all honesty, I can only do colour in small doses. I feel too loud when I wear too much of it, so it'll only be on those days when I want to make a statement with my outfit. But for everyday, I'm cool with keeping it fresh and simple.

Here I'm wearing a pair of ripped skinnys, a trusty tee, threw on a grey leather jacket and pulled everything together with my current favourite heels. Isn't this crocodile pattern leather bag (new buy!) just gorgeous?!

Love the outfit and I love how the backdrop of your shoot matches your color scheme! Neutrals are always the best way to go :)

That is a pretty bag. Really, anytime I visit Zara's website I'm amazed at the beautiful bags they have in stock. I get used to seeing the same Zara bags among the bloggers that I tend to forget that Zara has way more different style of bags in stock.

You look great!

Minimalistic spring cleaning! Glad you're taking stock of what you find is the bare basics in your wardrobe. Contrary to popular thinking, having a minimized wardrobe actually inspires the creativity needed to mix and match outfits in fresh new ways.

I spotted the bag in Zara, went away for a week. Couldn't stop thinking about it and then went and purchased it. Now, I see that you have it, too! Ladies, the bag is seriously on point, an investment piece, or that's what I tell myself anyway! Love how you put your outfits together, Shirley.
