Quiet style

Black trousers Mossimo - Cream drawstring top Kenneth Cole - Black flats Me Too 

Gold tone bag chain that belonged to this bag worn as necklace with vintage brooch

While I am not wearing any particular trend today, sometimes while getting dressed I ask myself if I am wearing too many of them at once. 
For me there is such a thing called too much "on trend", which I shy away from, as I think it may seem as a desperate scream to look stylish. I prefer quiet style. 
An example would be wearing a cold shoulder top paired with a floral skirt, the it belt matched with fish net stockings and velvet shoes. Oh, lets not forget the bag, the Cut Gaia Ark one... 
While I have probably everything on the list except the belt and bag I prefer to wear trends separately, let them have their moment. Well, maybe just two at a time. How about you ?

Haha, totally wore a cold shoulder top with bold raffia hoop earrings, wide leg jeans and my bamboo bag today...
But you are right, it's better to be quietly trendy, and I love the simple black and white look as your canvas. I also love it when I spy that broach!

I can't keep track of all the trends, so if I'm wearing one it's probably by accident. "Chic" is the perfect word to describe this outfit, Lorena. And hey, we both wore our bigass chain link necklaces today!

I know exactly what you mean!!
But then I try not to worry about it too much! Because there are times (like you are styling today) that I'm not wearing trendy!!

I'm with you - I always gravitate towards keeping things more on the minimal side and not piling on the trends - I think doing so allows those one or two really spectacular parts of an outfit to shine.
