{My} Minimal Wardrobe Essentials

Just thought I would throw back to minimalism month, and keep the love going. I feel that it also fits with our “Live Like A French Woman” month, as French women seem to have quality, timeless pieces for their wardrobes (generally speaking here).

Disclaimer-your essentials might look completely different! If you are looking to minimize and simplify your wardrobe, there is no rule that says to stick to blacks and other neutrals like I have. This is just what I like, and feel comfortable in. But if you like teal and pink, with fun patterns, by all means go for it! You still can pair down your wardrobe to your most worn, and favorite pieces, to create your minimal wardrobe essentials.

What would you put as a “must have” on your list?

Love It Or Leave It: Wardrobe Week

New week, new challenge for minimalism! It’s time to focus on clothing, accessories, and shoes for this week. This is a big one for most of us. I think the biggest thing to remember is that a minimal wardrobe doesn’t have a certain “one size fits all” number of pieces you should have-it’s very personal depending on where you live, what you do for work, and what your hobbies are. Your wardrobe also doesn’t have to be a certain color to be minimal and simplified. I go for black, grey, and navy, but that doesn’t mean yours has to be neutrals. You like pink and teal? Go for it! You like fun patterns? Fill your closet with tacos and birds. The key is to just keep pieces you love and wear all the time, and ones that can be versatile for your lifestyle.
