Begin Simply by April

Begin Simply is a space where I slowly curate my ideal wardrobe while giving a running commentary of the process. My ideal wardrobe is definitely one of neutral hues, simple cuts and quality material. Besides writing about my wardrobe I also intend to include cafe scenes (lots of coffee!) and still life photography. By the way, I watch too much AFL (yes, I am from Australia). On a more serious note, I am still not sure whether to continue on this platform (thinking of merging content from here to my Instagram), but for the time being I will be posting on both platforms - April

Dark on dark

Decking oneself from head to toe in colour will sure get you noticed. However, I reckon the absence of colour can be as dramatic as there is a sense of mystery and effortless ease. I have always debated whether all black will work for me, given that I also have hair that is closer to black then brown. So, I opted for a dark navy knit and black trousers. Coincidently, the knit actually photographed black (thanks to my absolutely amazing photography... still learning) and I reckon black on black just might work for me. 

All black, does it work for you? 

Something else I love, rolling my sleeves up. It gives an outfit a slightly dishevelled look that I prefer sometimes. Also, practically speaking it means that it guards the cool of chilly mornings and allows room for respite against the rising temperatures of the day, for me at least!  

Both sweater and trousers from Zara.
