I came to the point that I no longer wanted to be overwhelmed by life.

1.     What is minimalist style to you?

A wardrobe full of classic silhouettes, comfort, and a dash of whimsy.  Minimalist style is something you create that reflects your inner creative soul.

2.     How would you describe your blog?

A journal of the exploration of minimalism in fashion, beauty, travel and life. A resource and inspiration for those of us wanting to live a more meaningful life with less stuff.

3.     What inspired you to become a minimalist blogger?

Our society has glorified busy-ness.  Always on the go with plans and things to do.  I came to the point that I no longer wanted to be overwhelmed by life.  Minimalism is a movement that inspires slow living and being mindful.  Naturally, that message motivated me to change my views on how I want to create my life.

4.     What brands or designers inspire your minimalist style?

Everlane, H&M, Zara and Mango to name a few.  They provide quality made basics as well as pieces that elevate your style.

5.     How do you pull off minimalist style without being boring?

A classic foundation and whimsy pieces is the key.  Integrating patterns, textures and more color, will keep your wardrobe interesting.  Patterns, such as stripes and florals.  Textures like velvet and silk.  Colors like emerald green, navy blue, and blush pink (Any color really).

6.     Why has your culture/background impacted your minimalist style?

Having a Filipino mother who lived in poverty in the Philippines, growing up she always taught me quality over quantity.  Of course, when I got into Middle/High school I experimented with different looks, styles and fast fashion.  Now, I look to her wardrobe for inspiration (as well as raid it).


Minimalist style is something you create that reflects your inner creative soul.
