Minimal

Look, I could start this post off with an apology for an endless stream of cat photos and very few words but you don’t want to hear my platitudes, do you? Okay, then :) I will say that I’ve been having lots of conversations with my friend Zal about missing what blogging used to be and feeling a little nostalgic and a lot angry that everything is all about the Tubmans now. But, I digress.

I’ve been thinking a lot, a lot lately about paring down my wardrobe. Partly because I think my style is evolving and partly because I think it would just be easier to get dressed. So what does paring down mean to/for me? Ideally I’d like the largest core of my closet to be denim and things that are either navy, grey, black or white. If you know me or have followed me for any length of time you know this is just a bit absurd because I dress like a bag of skittles and I think I WILL keep some things that are colorful, but ultimately – I really, really need to purge some things and my closet and stop holding on to stuff.

I’m not going all Konmari Method or anything, but I just think about the amount of things I own and it makes me frown aggressively. Yesterday, I cleaned out my desk and the amount of just paper and usb cords and …stuff – I wanted to punch myself in the eye.

If you have any experience with a minimal wardrobe, give me all your advice. I need help.
