Last night I decided enough was enough with the whole talk-about-a-capsule-wardrobe thing. I'm going to do it. Looking through these photos made me realize that even when I put together an outfit that isn't leggings and a big sweater, I'm still reusing the same five to ten pieces. I wear this grey tee shirt every single week; and even though I don't always use this skirt, I've worn it countless times, and always with a different top. My wardrobe is already full of some great mix-and-match pieces, so now I'm finally just going to get rid of the rest of it.
I really love clothes, and I enjoy sharing my style here on the blog, but I'm never going to be a style blogger who buys new things all the time. I have been flirting with minimalism for over a year now and the more stuff I get rid of, the happier (and more at peace) I feel. So I'm going to go with that.
I'm going to start with my winter wardrobe and go from there--if any of you have gotten rid of the majority of your clothes and are living with less, I'd love to hear how you did it! I know I want fewer things in my closet but I always have trouble actually getting rid of stuff, even though I never wear it. Wish me luck!
