Today's minimalist style is colorful with an edge. I simply wore a light wash denim zipper vest over a high waisted plaid maxi skirt. To avoid wearing a hat (and to avoid pulling my hair back with a boring clip), I did a hair style that consists of uneven, overlapping parts with a series of twisted pieces mixed in. It has a patchwork look to it from all angles, but the twist braids can only be seen from the back.
It was love at first sight with this vest. I've always wanted a denim zipper vest and I was lucky enough to receive it from my clothing swap group. ^_^ I like that there are several different ways to wear it and you can see two very easy options in these first two photos. I think the light wash denim paired nicely with the red plaid maxi skirt. The sleeveless lace top underneath was necessary for modesty. :P
I should probably mention where I was going the day these photos were taken. Hehe. My partner and I live just a few blocks from a watering hole. It was such a nice day that we decided to walk there and have drinks on their outdoor patio. I had a very tasty mint julep. ^_^ The bright color and commanding patterns combined with the fact that the skirt is comfy and really easy to walk in made it a good choice.
I finished the outfit with my bright yellow Cambridge satchel, just to give it an extra punch of color. It's a wonderful bag and it has held up so well despite my constant abuse. Haha. I'm obsessed with these bags. I still can't believe it was only $64. I wish I had gotten other colors before the prices went back up!
