New Wardrobe Project

I haven’t written anything in a while. I was on a vacation back home and I really didn’t do anything! I just enjoyed…  I wasn’t posting on Instagram, Facebook, didn’t take any pictures… Nothing! When was the last time you did that? 😉

But now I am back in my apartment, back to reality, doing laundry and what not. It’s the simple things in life, ey? hhh 😉

Since my little wardrobe project is over, I am thinking what to do next?

I am slowly trying to implement some zero waste lifestyle changes. I have my reusable bottle, reusable bag and I am working on getting some other things. If you have any tips, please leave a comment. 🙂

Wardrobe wise, I am now thinking doing something else. Like not buying anything new for a certain period of time.
At first, I was thinking a year, but then I honestly don’t think I could do it! :S
One month passes really fast so how about 3 months? Yes!

I will not buy any new clothes, accessories or make up for 3 months! And then we’ll see how it goes…

Anyone else doing anything similar? Tell me how it’s going!

Please follow me on Instagram and Facebook!

Who is gonna be my 150th Instagram follower?! Kind of a big deal for me! hhh

And oh, should I maybe do more OOTDs – anyone interested in that?

Bye! ;D

Minimalist Living – October

I am sorry I am late. I’ve been a bit busy.

I was on vacation to Cuba (yaaaay!) and straight after – work. Didn’t even have time to unpack and do my laundry so I fell a bit behind.

Now that I finally have days off, this is what I wore in October. I’ll show you pre and post Cuba.

My regular month.

As you can see nothing much changed. I’m still sticking to the basics with a plain black T-shirts and a pair of jeans.

Now, this is what I wore to Cuba.

I also stuck to the basics with blacks and whites, but I tried bringing something interesting in with the lace and ruffles and the rivets. This is what I usually do. I get something simple, but I try to find something interesting on it like texture, cut or some detail I think is special. Do you do the same?

The dress I had in my closet for a while, but never got a chance to wear it. This was a perfect time for a photo shoot with beautiful Cuban 50’S cars! It reminds me of that era. It is simple yet beautiful!

And the skirt! It is H&M and I fell in love with it from the first time I saw it so when it came on sale – it was mine! 

I paired it with off the shoulder ruffle white top and it looks very girly and delicate. I definitely feel special when I wear it.

How is your closet minimalism going? 

And this is a good time to ask – how do you pack for holidays?

Do you go minimal and do you pack for every occasion? Because no matter how minimal I pack it seems to me I never wear all of what I bring! Do you have the same problem?

Please do leave a comment.

Have a good day everyone! =)

 

Minimalist Living – September

It seems to me that I wore much more clothes this month. Take a look.

Bottoms: 1 shorts, 1 jeans, 1 high waisted jeans (guys, these are sooo good and comfy I honestly recommend them – H&M) and 1 maxi skirt.

Tops: 3 shirts, 2 long sleeved T-shirts, 1 short sleeved and a tank top.

Outerwear: 1 blazer, 1 vest, 1 cardigan and 1 blanket as I call it x)

Shoes, as you can see, I have similar ankle booties. What I realized is I could spend most of my money coats and these kind of  booties! New weak spot! :/
The black and brown ones I bought only because they were so cheap (8$) and OMG they are the best buy ever! I’ve been out and about in them literally all day walking and exploring a new city and at the end of the day my feet didn’t hurt! Blessing! I love them!

I found that most of my items that I really love either came from a thrift shop or really cheap! How about you?

The all black ones, on the other hand, started hurting after only a few hours and I will most likely get rid of them. Same as the gray Startas. They are just old and worn out, but I am having seperating anxiety. Hhh Anyone else having these problems?

Just from looking at these pics I already know a few things I’m going to get rid of. Some of the clothes which are on the list, I wore just once and I realized they don’t make me feel that good when I wear them. 😦 Which is what your clothes are supposed to do in the end!

Just like my OOTD from September! Check it out here! 🙂

I just realized my experiment is coming to an end! One year of keeping track of my wardrobe almost done! Where does the time go!? 

Two more months and I’ll take you on my wardrobe purge! December or January – still haven’t decided so stay tuned!

Decorating on a Budget

Classic story. Feel tired, go to bed, brain starts working overload, can’t sleep. I know I’m not the only one, right?!
Thinking about my living room. Me and my room mates don’t actually use it, but if it looked nicer, maybe we would.
Take a look.

Not particularly inviting, I know. And you can see my Christmas tree! Hahahahaha x’D
Blank canvas. The thing is, our company owns the apartment so we can’t make any drastic changes. We have to leave the place like we found it, otherwise they charge us. And we don’t wanna invest a lot of money because we all know this is just temporary for us.

What to do then??? :s

Go to Pinterest! Hhh Yaaaay!
Anyone who’s been following me knows I love DIYing and naturally I already have a board just for that.
I have a couple of ideas what I could do, I just have to plan it carefully so I don’t end up with a bunch of stuff that don’t go well together.
I won’t say yet what my plans are, but they are in progress!

So if you guys want to see how to decorate your living room with little to no budget – stay tuned!
Like and follow!
And, of course, suggestions are welcomed!
Inspiration is everywhere! 😉
Be well!
