Nitty Gritty

When it comes down to basics, this is it. I've been in a major minimalist mood for the past year or so. Basically since my baby boy was born. If you knew me before, I was all about the special accessories. But, there's nothing practical about statement necklaces, silky anything or tripping over strappy heels. At least not when you're around a grab-anything-put-it-my-mouth kiddo all day. (I'm sure this will change once the kiddo is less interested in his mommy and I'll miss this time of my life.)

The funny thing is, I used to think I would never change my style. But, perhaps the style evolution is about the evolution of my life and as a result, I'm adapting my style towards my new life. I'm more aware of my sense of self and my body (even though that's changing too since I'm nursing and still feeling a bit "soft" from not working out as much as before) and trying trends that really work with my wardrobe, rather than forcing trends to fit my wardrobe.

Don't get me wrong, I still love the eclectic vibe. But, I'm more selective about what I do. I'm willing to invest in long term pieces rather than paying for fast purchases that I see in the stores as I walk by. Hence, that whole capsule thing I talked about - we'll get there I'm sure.

The great thing is I have this blog to see my evolution. Even cringe at them. And continue to grow and change. 


  1. Those photos of the Golden Gate in the background are amazing! I think I have toned down my look in recent years too. I think having a baby (I had three KIDS but having a BABY is different) and growing older and working in a more professional environment really did that to me. LOL Nothing wrong with evolving though!

  2. great, luv the jeans

  3. Evolution within our lives and ourselves is inevitable and often enjoyable. We always think we'll never change and then life happens and somehow we adjust ourselves to cope with it all.

    Great thought provoking post.


  4. So cute! Welcome back to the blogging world! :)

  6. Hey, gotta be practical, right? I'm learning that more and more and it's finally changing how I wear clothes or what I choose to buy.
    Love the boots and these green destroyed skinnies! Makes me want a pair of my own :D
    Also, these photos are so fab. Stunning!

  9. I know, I'm pretty simple too. I have a two and a half year old and looking back I realized my style changed as well. You look great even though you changed your look.
