Basic & Minimal

IMG_4840 IMG_4842 IMG_4848 IMG_4851 IMG_4854 IMG_4868 IMG_4874Hair up. Skinny jeans on. I guess I can throw on some heels to give the illusion that I’m trying. Simple and minimal was the look I was striving for because some days I just cannot be bothered. Pulling the hair back and throwing on some basic sleek clothes can be so refreshing. No patterns or prints fogging up my brain. No difficulties with the curling iron. Just an all black outfit with a boyfriend blazer to keep me looking and feeling calm and collected. There was something about this outfit that took me back to Kim Kardashian circa 2010. Before she became a “West.” The days when all she wore were blazers and jeans with hair pinned back into a sleek bun. She had things to do and an empire to build. I bet she couldn’t be bothered with all the hoopla either. Look at her now, no more business attire. Now that she’s reached a level of fame that no one can top, she wears Givenchy to bed. Must be nice. In a way, I’m building my own little empire. Not the same extravagant level like Kim but still a dream nonetheless. I strive every single day to do something for my future. I take a step out of my comfort zone all the time. When I’m not working I’m educating my brain on all things fashion. I still have so much to learn. No, I will never be famous like Kim but someday I WILL go to bed with a full heart and with the feeling of success, just like her. I have a love/hate relationship with the Kardashian fam bam. I think we all do. No matter the drama, they are a family to look up to based on the simple fact that they built an empire so incredible out of nothing.

With love,
