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! =)

OOTD Yellow Fever

Here’s a quick post on my OOTD today. Actually, I am still wearing it as I’m writing! That’s how fresh it is! XD

I know I’m wearing a lot of black lately, but I acutally L.O.V.E. colours and I very much admire african print and fashion!

This is I guess some kind of interpretation of it.

I paired this vibrant yellow Pull&Bear maxi skirt with a denim shirt. Bracelets I made myself. Leave a comment if you like them! 🙂

I tied a scarf around my head. Especially now that I’m doing no poo. Hhhh But that’s another blog post.

I had simple flats and a small off white bag.

Hope you guys like it!

Minimalist Living -August

I definitely wore more clothes in August because I went on holidays… to Lisbon! Soo beautiful, but back to the topic at hand.

This is what I wore.


I’m glad I’m wearing more dresses. My goal is to get rid of majority of them and now I see slowly which ones.

The romper – if you’re following me you can recognize it from before here and here.

And I have a new pair of favourite jeans – high waisted ones! Finally! I hate when I am trying on jeans which are supposed to be high waisted and they are below the belly button! No! I’m sorry, but that is not high waisted! They have to be over the belly button! (Ok, mini rant over hh)

These are H&M. Only thing I don’t like is they don’t have front pockets. Only back, but can’t have it all I guess. Happy with them though! 🙂 I need to get one pair in black.

I did have some OOTDs I really liked. My goal for the next month is to take pictures of them for you guys and post them of course. 🙂

How is your minimalist wardrobe going?

My Little Shopping Spree

Aa promised, here are the things I bought. Take a look.

All on sale, of course.

The white off the shoulder tee and the white fuzzy one I was looking for, so happy with that. The rest was just because I liked it. 🙂 or 😦 idk.

Pants I love. I stayed in them when I bought them. The shorts I find so cute and I love the details on them. The striped T shirt I was actually looking at for a longer time so when it came on sale, it was mine! ^^

I will definitely wear everything on my upcoming trip to Lisbon. =)

However, this was not the only shopping I did. I think it was back in April or May before my leave. I wish I wrote down what I bought exactly because I am not sure any more, but here it is.

Good news is I wear everything but the dresses. I have to stop buying dresses. However I love the back on them and they are long and flowy, can’t wait to wear them. 

Shoes are for the autumn and my attempt to be more girly. Hhh

So that’s is!

Definitely wasn’t planned and I did make some mistakes but hey! We learn! What do you think of my little shopping spree?

How is your minimalism going? Hope you’re having more success than I did!

Be well everyone!

Minimalist Living – July

I know. July is not over yet, but I’m working tomorrow which means I’ll be wearing my uniform.

This month I wore a bit more clothes. One of the reasons, my favourite dark blue skinny jeans ripped and I had to throw them away. *sad* 😦

So I decided to put off buying them as long as I can. This ended in me going through my closet and discovering new/old things again. X) And wearing different jeans and not the same pair over and over again.

I did wear some dresses which I’m proud of and definitely more jeans.

But I have to make a confession. I’ve been shopping! :/

I couldn’t resist. I have a trip coming up! Going to Lisbon! Yaaay! Very excited! 😀

So I got a few things. All on sale though. Still… I’ll show you what I’ve bought in my next post.

How often do you fall off the wagon and go shopping? Or you don’t?

Please make me feel better! 😦 Leave a comment!

Be well everyone! =)

My First Thoughts on a Minimalist Closet

Six months have passed since I’ve started my little experiment.

For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about let me explain.

I am really intrigued with the idea of minimalist living and minimalist closet, but the thought of doing it now is a bit scary. That’s why I customized the idea to fit me.

I didn’t get rid of anything (yet), but I am simply keeping track of the outfits I wear and at the end of each month I do a post on what I wore.

You can take a look at all the months here:

As far as my dressing goes, I can definitely see a pattern and if I get rid of 90% of my wardrobe I can say I wouldn’t miss it.


TOP 3 THINGS I’VE LEARNED SO FAR

1.  You get to know yourself better

Once you start doing this for a while, you will get to know your style better.
You will see what you reach for and not and what you are missing in your closet. You will realize how many items you don’t really wear.

2. I don’t shop as much

Whenever I go to a mall and see something, I think twice now. I think back to this experiment, realize that I either have something similar in my closet already or I honestly say to myself that yes, it is nice, but I know deep down I wouldn’t really wear it.
Like I said, you get to know your styling needs better and thus you make better choices!

 

3. It is not that scary!

After half a year now I can honestly say the thought of getting rid of my clothes does not scare me that much anymore!
I have a pretty good picture of what I do and do not wear and what my lifestyle needs are. This helped me in a little wardrobe cleansing I already did.


In conclusion, I am really happy how my first six moths have passed! =)

I got to know myself better, I feel more free of the shopping frenzy and when I am getting dressed to go out I FEEL MORE CALM AND CONFIDENT.

What do you think? 
Are you doing anything similar? If yes, what are your experiences? Do you agree with my thoughts?

I will be doing a post on how I cleaned out my closet.

So if you’re having trouble with it and are not sure how to approach it I will be sharing my experiences and how I tackled this problem. Stay tuned! 😉

Be well everyone! =)

 

OOTD Elevator Selfie

Hey guys!

I found a selfie of mine from an elevator. With a duck face. Can it get any more cliche than that?! X’D

image

I was going out to meet my friends. I wanted to dress up a bit, but not too much.
That is why I chose this jersey pencil skirt (so comfy! ^^) and a simple black shirt.

image

I realized I l.o.v.e. this shirt! Whenever I don’t know what to wear I reach for this!
Maybe I should do Ways to wear on this one? What do you think? Please comment!

image

It is simple, black, you can dress it up or down, wear it with skirts or jeans – it doesn’t matter! It looks good with everything! And it is thrifted! I payed around 50 cents for it and got sooo much wear out of it! ❤

If you follow me and my minimalist experiment, you will recognize this from last month wardrobe. 😉

Hope you like it! ❤
