A year ago, I would never classify myself as a simple girl. Accessories? Pile them up my arms and all around my neck. Color? The more the merrier! Drama? You best believe that I've got 99 problems and a bitch IS one. But as I grew and my style evolved, I trimmed down the accessories and the flair and just stuck with the bare basics. I now love my blacks and my whites and I love my denim sans rips and designs; it's the core basics that I'm a slave to.

That's not to say that I don't love little add-ons here and there. That's why this embellished H&M top is so beautiful to me, I love the sheer simplicity of it with the added sparkle and shine. It makes even the most basic outfit a tad more appealing to the eye. For now, in a period in my life where I never know what the next few hours of my life will take me, comfort and versatility comes first.

In going with the newly appointed "theme of my life," I changed my blog to reflect my love of the simple things. Just black, grey, white and a little mint. Because really, who doesn't love a good mint? What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
