This is also that time of the year that you start to try to figure out that a new season is on the cards, and hell, what are the trends!?  You don’t? Good for you, skip the text and go right to the end and claim your 200 bucks!

Even though I try to stay away from what’s in and what’s hot, it just feels like all my fashion essentials are always in fashion! Please don’t think I’m full of myself, I’m just old enough to have ridden round the merry-go-round a couple of times and a lot if seems stale and the other half a little too experimental.

Printed delicate dresses with boots or sneakers? Check Dad’s authentic green army jacket, dirty, holey and old, Check. 80’s? Check.  90’s?  00’s ? Slip dress and leather jacket?  Kitten heel slingbacks? and the list goes on and on…

So I’m going back to basics, essential living at its best. White and beige, khaki and black, black and white, accessories, ( the hard part for me ), cleaner and  more minimalistic, less clutter more simplicity. Since a lot of the times my inspirational motif comes from a ‘ Global Gypsy ‘, whatever that means, I’m going to need to look at my inspiring fashion icons, some in the present, a lot in the past.
