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

New addition - black wrapped skirt

You have seen my one and only skirt, so it is only fitting to introduce the "Linen Mini Skirt with Wrap Detail" I have just purchased from ASOS. It ticks all the boxes in terms of being A-line, high waisted and being a neutral colour. Also, the wrap detailing gives a different spin on the typical A-line skirt while still adhering to the fit.

It caught my eye while looking on ASOS after seeing the Zara "Wrap Mini Skirt" worn in all ways around the internet. I started to wonder why so many people had gravitated towards this one style. I can only speak for myself, but I find the wrap detailing a fresh look in terms of experimenting with new skirt details.

Besides the wrap detailing, the versatility of this skirt is beyond words. It can be styled up with a slick silk tank and sharp blazer or dressed down with a shirt, tee or sweater. The possibilities are endless, even without mentioning footwear. Above are my go to options for a dressed down look (balancing those shoes on the plank was quite hard work, it reminded me of physics - force & torque!) 

Which top and shoes would you pair with this skirt?


  1. Very nice but it would be great to see what it looks like on!

    I'm glad you're listing more details (like brand) for the items, a link to the actual item would be good too....

    1. Thank you, there will probably be one up soon as I will definitely be wearing it!

      If you ever want to know the brand/link of something don't hesitate to comment on the post and I'll reply back. Also, I'll start listing more details in the actual post.


Thank you, I try and read all comments!
