I’m Gretchen, the voice behind Monochrome Minimalist. When I was younger, I was the type to usually be found in a GAP sweatshirt, baggy denim and work boots (except for the rare occasion that I went for a pink bikini and heart-shaped sunglasses). My, how times have changed.

Now that I’ve grown into my personal style, I find that I prefer feminine silhouettes with a bit of an edge. If I had to define my style sense in three words, they would probably be romantic, edgy and tailored. Born and raised in the middle of a city, I find myself reaching for styles that are best suited to a life on the go – whether that’s quick walks to a meeting, a long drive or a flight to an incredible destination.

In my opinion, you can never have too many shoes – something you’ll realize if you decide to follow along on Monochrome Minimalist or any other of my social platforms. Monochrome Minimalist started in 2015 as a creative outlet to showcase my love for fashion and editorial content. It has transformed into not only a fashion blog, but incorporating my other passions in life: great food, beautiful destinations, and a wonderfully versatile wardrobe. As I’ve gotten older and developed new interests, my content has changed too. Now you’ll find advice pieces as well as a fantastic cocktail recipe, fashion alongside travel.

This being said, I hope you’ll decide to stick around with me – I’ve got some really great plans coming for Monochrome Minimalist, and I hope you’ll like the direction that it’s going.
