Habitually Chic®'s Logo

Fashion week is coming up soon and I’m not looking forward to all the crazy colorful street style characters looking for attention.  Right now, I’m inspired by a return to black and white simplicity (with a little grey thrown in as usual).  That’s not to say I’m anti-color but I like it used as an accent instead of the main event.  It just looks chic and we know how I like chic. 
N.B. I’m off to pilates but will add all the credits when I return.

    Heather I am with you, I wear a lot of grey, black, and winter white; then use color in the details; jewelry scarves, bags, T’s etc.

    I had to read that twice just to make sure I read that you were NOT looking forward to the craziness. What a breath of fresh air you are lol! Thanks for keeping it real!

    I’m a sucker for simplicity…well at least on other people.

    the most farthest you can get from fashionista

    Karen Albert said it well. I also like a simple palette best.

    My new favorite old quote is from Leonardo da Vinci, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. That will be my mantra as I edit my closet.

    i get more compliments on the days I wear a simple dress shirt, jeans and tie/blazer. everyone says “you looked dressed up”. I really want to say “no, its just a simple uncomplicated outfit”. 🙂 great post and great photos.
