Minimalist Fashion: Fall Accessories

As I live with a capsule wardrobe, it is incredibly important that each of my accessories are iconic, transferable and classic enough to see me through the three months of Project 333. I have chosen my layers, knits and boots which will see my through my three months of Autumn. They are all still in-keeping with my personal defined style, but they have that fall-feeling about them. To set off each outfit, I have decided upon four key accessories to pair with my looks. Firstly, I know a handbag is a must. As we are heading into winter season, I will also need a clutch to see me through those winter party evenings. This is why I have settled on my tan slouchy bag, and red vintage Louis Vuitton clutch. These two interchangeable pieces will be perfect for wintery days out, and fabulous fall parties. A scarf is my second essential. It can be worn so many ways, and will brighten up any outfit, as well as keeping you toasty! I love my blue knitted …

Minimalist Fashion: Styling Basic Black Skinny Jeans

As I live in England, our Summer has so far consisted of a mere handful of days where I could brave it and bare my legs. Therefore, I have often found myself in my trusty black skinny jeans day in and out. Living with less and out of a capsule wardrobe makes a lot of people assume that my wardrobe is boring and unimaginative. Even though I have worn my black jeans at least 10 days out of the last 30,I personally don’t feel like my outfits have been at all limited. It is all about the pairing, layering and styling. You see a pair of well-fitting, sustainable and long lasting black skinny jeans is an incredible investment. They can be dressed up with a pair of heels or down with casual flats and a basic tee. They can work for formal events or a casual brunch. My personal favourite pair of black skinny jeans is my Cheap Monday frayed and distressed jeans. The brand is affordable, their jeans are very hard-wearing for everyday wear, …

The Perfect Minimalist Accessory: A Stylish Pair of Specs

Living with less means spending less on the things that don’t enrich your life and fill it with bad energy, and more on the things that matter to you. For a while now I have been decluttering my wardrobe and refining my own personal style, and now I am taking part in #Project333 to really get my clothes down to that perfect capsule collection. I am a big believer in buying according to your personal style and look. This way, you don’t need to worry that you won’t love an item when you get home, or that you’ll wear it once and then realise it’s not your shape/size/colour. A large part of that is clothes, but quite often people really overlook their accessories collection. For me, my accessories need to be functional, practical but also look good with my capsule collection. If you know me well, you’ll know I am a regular glasses wearer (you will especially know this if you’ve ever been in a car with me!) This means that I quite often pair …

A Minimalist Makeup Collection: Create Your Capsule Beauty Look

Living minimally means investing less in the things that don’t contribute actively to your life, happiness and goals. By reducing the time and money spend on things which don’t play their part in our lasting happiness, we are making a mindful effort to live our lives in a way in which we get the most out of them. So far I have decluttered my walls, drawers, living space, closet and lifestyle. However there’s still many areas in need of some serious assessment when it comes to minimising. One in particular is my makeup collection. After years of minimising my life, I realised only THIS morning as my foundation ran out, that I still invest a hell of a lot of money on my beauty regime and makeup collection. Let me lay it out for you. On a regular day (five of the seven in a week) I use: Coconut Moisturiser (£2 a pop) Rimmel Matte Primer (£6) No.7 Matte Foundation (£16) Benefit Brow (£16) Rimmel Brow Pencil (£6) Natural Collection Lip Liner (£2) Smashbox Concealer …

Project 333 – Embracing Minimalist Fashion For Three Months

I have been working on my own minimalist wardrobe project for around a year now, however I feel that I am at the final hurdle and need that little push to curate the perfect capsule wardrobe. I want to be able to dress quickly and feel confident each and every day, without investing money into instant-feel good pieces. So far I have curated my own personal style using my style identity workbook, and I have reduced my shopping habits so that I only buy when necessary, and when it fits with my style criteria. However for three reasons, I need a final push. I still sometimes struggle with finding what to wear. I want to save time in the mornings for writing, and therefore less choice means less time wasted. I have the travel bug, and therefore need to save in order to spend on the things which matter to me. So from today I will be starting Project 333. Already I can store my clothing without a closet, let’s see if I can get …
