More Fashion and Style posts, so here’s a 15 question Style tag.

  • Everlane
  • RW and Co
  1. Store you like to visit, but don’t usually buy from?

Urban Outfitters, my sister loves to shop here, and while I like the store I rarely find anything I truly like.

A Minimal Wardrobe: 3 Reasons Why I Love it

77. Minimal Wardrobe Reasons.jpg

For the next few weeks I’m going to focus on Fashion and Style and this week I’m starting with my minimal wardrobe, specifically reasons I love my minimal wardrobe.

So here goes…

Reason #1

Actually having a defined style. I spent so many years never having anything to wear, or so it seemed. I was really just buying clothing that appealed to me, but wasn’t really my style.

I’d buy clothing pieces, instead of thinking in terms of outfits. Now however, I have keep a neutral colour palette with a few added colours that I like and know look good on me, and I go for comfort and styles that I know work instead of just what appeals to me when I go shopping.

If you don’t already know, I live in Canada and while some days it can be quite mild, it can also drop t0 -20 degrees Celsius overnight. So that means fashion may have to take one for the team and settle on comfy sweaters and leggings most days. But that’s the whole point of layering right? Today, I’d like to share some of my recent purchases and how I like to wear these items during the cold winter months.

Item #1- A good pair of Winter Boots

And while most have indulged in some aspect of that lifestyle, myself included, there still seems to be one thing that gets overlooked again and again. And that is fashion. Fashion is about self-expression, showing who you are on the inside, out for the world to see. And if so many of us are trying to be more aware of what thoughts we let enter our minds, and what food we decide to put into our bodies, why are we also not caring about the clothing we wear every day?

I have been following a lot of blogs and channels lately and so I thought I’d share some of the inspiration I’ve been collecting with you. First up: Youtubers.

I had found Coco’s videos a while ago, but had never watched them on a regular basis. And about a month ago, I went back and watched like all of her Capsule Wardrobe videos. She focuses on minimalism and keeping everything clean and clutter-free and that is something I’m really trying to do right now, so she really inspired me to do that and live a simpler life.
