The Minimal Closet : Wardrobe Reality & How to Purge

Minimalism isn’t for everyone, but for me, it is the natural progression of my desire to have quality pieces over MORE pieces, my financial constraints/goals right now (getting out of debt), and my overwhelming urge to just HAVE FEWER and more meaningful things.


Outfit // Dressed, but not really

This skirt has been a workhorse in my wardrobe. I’ve had it for years; I don’t remember exactly when I got it, but I want to say 2008 or 2009? Actually, as far as I can tell from searching the archives, it first surfaces in 2009 (um…LOL at my pose/face/everything!!).

What I’m Wearing


Outfit // Fall Shopping

In case I haven’t mentioned this before, I am single-minded when it comes to shopping and finding what I’ve determined that I need; I have a hard time thinking about much else. And I’m REALLY REALLY in the mood for fall clothes right now, since it’s the hottest time of the year. Ugh.


Outfit // Beyond Yoga

It’s Monday…Monday is usually my favorite day, but today I’m having a hard time getting “into” it. I think I’m thrown off by being in Austin over the weekend; I didn’t get my usual “down” time at home. And I miss my friends there SO much. It was also so hot Saturday I think it just drained me.

Outfit // How Not to Elevate the Sweatpant

You know all the articles lately on “elevating the sweatpant”? or dressing up a gray sweatshirt? What if you just want to wear sweatpants, NOT elevate them? I don’t know…if I’m in a sweatpants mood, I’m not going to throw on some pointy-toe heels and a Theory blazer; I’m just going to wear the freaking sweatpants.
