Sometime last week I was going through my social media feeds and noticing that I follow a lot of minimalist accounts, ones that lack color, but are super sleek. I went through my own Tumblr and noticed that huge sections of it lacked bright colors as well- and so does my Pinterest. I’ve always laughed that my Tumblr is a good representation of my aesthetic. The problem with this idea is if you then look at this blog full of my photos you’ll see… a lot of color.
It’s true my fashion style is pretty minimalist, I like basic shapes and I pretty well steer clear of pattern. But, I do wear colors too, mostly jewel tones. My Pinterest fashion board is washed of most jewel tones though because the lines and shapes I like tend to be showcased by people who wear neutrals and think navy is a flashy color. There’s nothing wrong with that, I clearly love their outfits, but it made me step back and question what I’ve always said is my aesthetic.
