Perhaps you unearthed an irresistible steal, maybe you fell in love with the fabric or print. Take a pause before you rush to the checkout. Even the most beautiful pieces in your wardrobe can go unworn; no matter the deal – it’s not worth it. Ask yourself: Is this style truly me or …

minimal style capsule wardrobe essentials

items from my wardrobe I always re-wear over and over

The absolute chaos, hangers pressed so tightly together you could get blisters from pulling them apart – we all know what it feels like to have too many pieces crammed in our wardrobe. And, as much as we like the idea of a truly minimalist wardrobe, sometimes it’s not as easy as it sounds. If you’re trying to create some extra space, I’ve shared a few of my hacks for minimizing to a capsule wardrobe. But one of the most important factors we often overlook, is: Don’t purchase items you’ll rarely wear in the first place. Let’s be honest. Most of us only wear our favorite 20 or so items, and the rest of our clothes sits untouched month after month… sometimes longer. What if you only purchased those reworn items?

luxury fashion capsule wardrobe tips

this is where I leave you

The past couple of months have been an arduous challenge in time management, making a personal oasis essential for survival. It’s been overwhelming at times, but then I often think that’s what I live for. Moving into a new house, undertaking new challenges, and shifting towards some fresh starts has all but kept me in flight at any moment of the day. But at last, my new home has come together, with a beautiful open studio space for my work and plenty of space designed exquisitely for myself. The transition was difficult, as change often is. New beginnings are also an end, and many aspects of that evolution were bittersweet. But endings should not be sad. Rather, they should be a celebration of something beautiful. The past does not melt into the abyss, part of it stays with us forever. I am forever grateful for the places and experiences that I came from, for each moment in the present time, and the continuation to the imminent future ahead. photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | …

Why? First of all, I feel beyond blessed to have had the opportunity to share with you guys my inspiration in fashion, travel and life in general. Giving back is one way I feel like I can keep that incredible encouragement you provide to me, flowing on to the next person. Second of all, one only has so much space in their wardrobe! My value in life is placed on experiences, and surrounding myself with the people I love. Minimizing is an important step to reducing clutter, saving time, and maximizing on the things that are most important to you. Thirdly, I can now officially announce to you guys – I’m moving! There has never been a better time to …
