Building A Minimalist Wardrobe

You've seen the documentary. You conclude that kind of lifestyle is inconceivable. I hear ya. 

A minimalist's way of life isn't necessarily having one of each necessity. For me, it's about making an informed, thoughtful decision and the longevity of the item I'm purchasing. 

Downsizing can be hard. I'm guilty of late night (perhaps wine induced) online shopping. I love the latest trends. I have more shoes than I can store. BUT I'm of the mindset that I want to know exactly what's in my closet at all times, so I've definitely scaled down how much I buy.

There's nothing like a good white tee 

Here are the pieces that have helped me build a versatile closet: 

  • White tee shirt: Everlane - love this company, love the quality and great price point
  • Light blue jeans: Citizens of Humanity Rocket - all time favourite, such soft denim, pricy, but I end up wearing them so much (dressing down and up)
  • Black jeans: Everlane High-Rise Skinny 
  • Puffer jacket: so many great alternatives this season! I love the Lululemon Slush Hour jacket because it's waterproof, 600-fill-power (+ it's certified to the responsible down standard)
  • Army coloured jacket: the one in the photos is from Tobi, but there are great alternatives out there!
  • Light duster jacket: I'm all about elevating a simple jeans and tee look, and I love throwing on a duster jacket to do so - Babaton Jacket
