Plain and Simple

Jacket-H&M, Top- vintage Ralph Lauren (worn here), Jeans-c/o James Jeans, Shoes-Steven by Steve Madden, Handbag-Rebecca Minkoff c/o Stefani Bags, Sunglasses-Ray-Bans 

You would think that being the founder of Glitter Guide I would always dress bold, colorful, and bedazzling. But to me being "glittery" means being confident in your own skin and knowing when to keep it simple. I've never subscribed to the notion of "more is more". Don't get me wrong I love decadence and glitz, but I also like minimal and easy. There are times when I go out with very little makeup, my hair messy from the day before, and no jewelry. It feels good to care about what I'm wearing, but not enough to fuss over it: plain and simple.

i attempt to follow the the phrase "chase simplicity," however i seem to sometimes over do it; with makeup, jewelry, etc..

so i love this post and totally agree with being "glittery" should mean being comfortable and confident in what you are wearing and how you present yourself.

i completely agree! sometimes, i love to be bright and flashy, but most of the time i prefer minimalist stuff like my skinny jeans, a loose-fitting tee and chuck taylors. no muss, no fuss.

That jacket is the perfect bit of girly casual. Amazing, as usual.

yes, totally agree...simplicity speaks to me, too. love getting dolled/jazzed up but sometimes being simple takes the cake!

I completely agree. You should never have to try too hard with your own style. It's all about what you feel confident and great in.
Love your look here too. (:

joelle van dyne said...

you are proving the point that one can look just as fashionable wearing simple basics as wearing lots of sparkles/layers/patterns etc. this outfit is so pretty!

Amber said...

Erika of Style Activist said...

Hi Taylor!

It was so nice meeting you at Lucky FABB. I love the plain + simple look. Sometimes it's refreshing to own a down-played look.

The "plain and simple" look is just as pretty on you. I love how the pink RL top goes with the blooming cherry blossoms...and that Rebecca Minkoff satchel is complete eye candy.

I feel like this is me most of the time. I really need a reason to get all spiffed up, unfortunately. Most days are super casual and easy. You look super comfy, but still pulled together. Love it.
