The Maximalist In Me

Maximalist Outfit

Crocheted striped sweater, polka-dot shirt, golden buttoned nautical blazer, men's cap, quilted bag, red cage sandals, boyfriend white jeans, hoop earrings and aviator sunglasses…it might be a bit too much for many of you, but for me, they are the type of details that when put together create my personal style, which is an extension of my personality. Believe me, as an experiment and after contemplating Sofia Coppola's style, I tried a few times to dress as minimalist as possible and I unconsciously ended up adding extra details to my look…lol
I must mention and you probably already surmised that my style is not typically appropriate for the office. I don't work in one, which actually gives me the opportunity to express myself with my clothes and a big part of that is wearing mixed patterns and my dear hats.
Now tell me about you, are you minimalist like Sofia Coppola or a maximalist like Viviana Volpicella?

Suéter rayado de croché, camisa de lunares, chaqueta con botones dorados, gorra, bolso acolchado, sandalias rojas de tacón, vaqueros blancos, argollas, gafas de aviador…posiblemente para muchas de ustedes puedan ser muchos detalles en un conjunto, pero para mi significan mi estilo, el cual es una extensión de mi personalidad. Créanme, después de contemplar el estilo de Sofia Coppola y también como experimento, traté de vestirme con lo mínimo posible una que otra vez, pero inconscientemente terminé añadiendo extra detalles a mi conjunto ;-)
Les debo mencionar o posiblemente varias de ustedes ya han notado que mi estilo no es el apropiado para una oficina formal. Yo no trabajo en una oficina con reglas de vestuario, por lo tanto tengo la oportunidad de expresar me con la moda y gran parte de eso es el uso de mis sombreros  y la combinación de estampados.
Ahora cuéntame acerca de tu estilo, eres minimalista como Sofia Coppola o maximalista como Viviana Volpicella?

  1. I enjoy complexity - mix of colors, textures and layering is very pleasing to my eye! I love the playfulness and sunshine of your style, Carelia, and I can see why you are taken with Viviana's style. I am definitely not a minimalist myself, and I think being true to ourselves is the most important thing in life, really. The way we are inside reflects in how we dress, how we decorate our home, our preferences in garden planting and the town we choose to live in (eventually :), people with who we prefer to spend our time, and even more - the life we choose to live. So why be other than yourself and the truest at that? :)

    1. Thanks so much Natalia for your awesome comment! I have to agree with you on everything, embracing who we are is what it matters. I really enjoy complexity fashion wise, my wardrobe is like my personal playground, sometimes I want to play with everything at once…lol.

  5. The sandals caught my eye, great color and I love lace ups. I so enjoy how you mix pattern and texture. I like both types of styling.

  9. Looking typically, maximally, truly Carelia! Love it my friend. I am definitely closer to minimalism, but I like each piece to be just "so". It's all about the details!

    1. Well hello beautiful!! Thanks for stopping by and leaving comment. And by the way when I think about your style, Miranda Kerr is what comes to my mind.

  10. You are a remarkably good stylist, and have a distinct way of styling nautical outfits. I particularly like the way you add accessories and match up without an effort!

  12. your style is always so SO impeccable- i love how sporty but preppy this whole outfit is. also, i want that hat.

    and i think i'm kind of a mix of both, too! i used to dress a lot more louder even a few months ago, but now i'm really trying to appreciate a little bit more of minimalism. it's hard to choose,haha!
