A fan of all things minimalist, I prefer to invest in a few simple pieces each season and am a big believer that you can never own too many pairs of black flats. I’m constantly on the search for the coolest new brands, so you’re most likely to find me surrounded by magazines when I’m not blogging. That, or binge watching Netflix.
