I am a firm believer that a lot of times less is more when it comes to fashion. Minimalism is the ticket to pulling this look off. Here are a 3 easy ways to hit that perfect, basic minimal look:

1.) Start with crisp, clean whites or a classic white & nude or black & white color combo for a quintessential minimalist look.

2.) By simplifying all other features in a minimalist look, the structure and cut of a piece becomes the focal point of a look. The biggest key to putting together a successful minimalist look is sharp lines – it makes the minimalism look intentional instead of accidental. I love the cut and lapel of this white blazer – the structure and crisp white look is understated but elegant. Also loving this long sleeveless vest for spring and summer.

3.) Just because accessories are your thing, don’t count yourself out of the minimalist game! Simple accessories like a dainty thin bracelet, stackable rings (love this set!), or other understated jewelry puts the finishing touches on any minimalist look.

BIG NEWS: Nordstrom half yearly sale just started today!! You know Nordstrom is my like one in all store so I am excited to hit up the deals (UP TO 40% OFF!). Below are a few of my favorites – I will share more this week. This sweater I wore in a couple posts ago is 40% off. I’m dying over these shoes and I just added this and this to my shopping bag.

6 Reasons to Become a Hat Person

DETAILS: WHITE SWEATER || BLACK JACKET (SIMILAR HERE) || DISTRESSED DENIM (SIMILAR HERE, LOVE THESE) || WEDGES (MORE SIZES HERE) || BLACK FRINGE TOTE || FEDORA || SUNGLASSES || GOLD WATCH

Hats are one of my favorite accessories to wear year around. Lately the wide-brim hats and fedoras have been on constant repeat in my wardrobe. It’s a statement detail that instantly makes any look more interesting and it’s also a quick and simple addition to your outfit. The biggest misconception about hats is that only certain people can pull them off. Nothing could be further from the truth! Here are 6 tips to styling hats like a pro.

1. First things first- pick a hat that fits! It should sit squarely on your head and cover most of your forehead.
2. For a tried and true style, select hats that look like they could fit in during any season, like a classic fedora or straw wide brim hat. Those classic styles are timeless for a reason and are seamless to pull off.
3. Hat hair makes all the difference. With a wide brim hat, play up your natural hair texture when wearing your hair long and loose. A low ponytail and loose braid are other hairstyles perfect for wearing a hat.
4. Hats are no respecter of seasons. When paired with a summer dress or distressed cut-offs, felt hats can be easily transitioned into spring and summer.
5. For an effortless way to style a hat, keep the rest of your accessories and outfit details basic. A hat carries a lot of weight in your look, so taking the rest of ensemble minimal creates a much-needed balance.
6. Confidence is key. The single greatest tip to successfully rock any hat is to wear it with confidence.
