The white shirt is THE FOUNDATION of every stylish wardrobe, minimalist or not. Not only is a pure-white button-down shirt universally flattering, it's super easy to style and in several different ways too.
Whether you're a 'go big or go home' dresser or veer towards the conservative side like me, a classic white button-down shirt will serve you well. [See how I've styled it in two ways here].

White shirts/blouses are simple pieces that are helping me continue my transition into a minimalist and neutral aesthetic generally. 
This is a process that i'm enjoying so much and these days, it is becoming a signature look for me, as i find myself reaching for any of my three white shirts whenever i need to dress up.

I wore it here paired into a pair of cropped white-washed jeans and simple clear sandals. 

As far as accessories go, I kept it simple as usual with gold jewelry, my day silver wristwatch and small a black purse.
The other amazing thing about this simple outfit is how easy and clean it makes me look, especially with the dark lipstick which I've found is a quick way to amp up a white or monochromatic look.
On another note, the colour white makes me feel light and peaceful, which are emotions that i crave and value these days. 
Also, it's inspired me to clean-up other areas of my life. So I have started re-doing my bedroom and for partly similar reasons, I'm also restarting my Instagram journey.

Style Basic: The White Shirt.

 Hey guys! Happy new year and welcome back here. We are kicking off with a simple style post featuring this minimalist black and tan outfit.

In case you missed it and in case you are yet to see any of my recent YouTube videos, i am minimalist. I’ve been for a long time now and will be for a very long time to come.
One of the most efficient ways to be minimalist in your style is to decide what colors and cut of outfits best suits your body, personality, lifestyle and general aesthetic.

For me, I’ve come to know that structured, easy and not-too-feminine outfits in neutral shades are my preferred style and aesthetic, so I’ve been enjoying styling myself in that way.
Another key tip in style minimalism is the intentional curating of wardrobe basics like a good pair of well-fitted pants and a comfortable top like this knitted black shirt I got from my last thrift haul (see it here). I have also styled it with my black Mango pants, (see it here) so it’s one of the most versatile pieces of clothing I own right now.

Easy outfits like this are flattering and can be worn by almost anyone.
I am enjoying gradually curating my wardrobe with intentional pieces that suit my personal style, so look out for my wardrobe makeover video:).

Style: Minimalist Black & Tan Outfit.

Hello guys and happy holidays! I hope you are happy and celebrating already. I am not but my makeup sure is 😁

I created this minimalist holiday  makeup look, featuring the requisite glitter and red lips, but in a simple wearable and achievable way.
I used a glitter eyeliner instead of dealing with tons of gritty glitter, glue and messiness.
The red lips are a fave of mine, if you know me, so i was happy to indulge.
This are happy times, so let your makeup reflect  it, whether you're out and about to some party, event, dinner, etc. or you're firmly deposited on the couch like me.

I'll be posting an alternative makeup look for the season next. Stay tuned!

Watch the full video tutorial via my Youtube channel.

Cheers!

Minimalist holiday makeup.

Hey babes, it’s my birthday today whoop whoop!

I don’t have much to say other than thanks.
To God, my family, friends and other well-wishers.

No, I’m not celebrating, not even with a shower (yet. I’ll get to that later J), I’m just sitting at home, chilling, working and sleeping, as usual.
Anyway, that’s the post.

P.S. – I’ll still be collecting gifts even after today, so see my 2019 wish-list and gift me something, ok?
