Seeking Simplicity

Finding ways to simplify + streamline my every day has been my most recent goal. After doing a massive closet clean-out (that you might remember me going on about like it was my life's mission) I've realized that I don't want to get myself to that place again. That place is holding up something I bought a year ago with the tags still on, knowing I shouldn't keep it, but feeling enormous guilt over the waste of money and energy. Even my $10 thrift store steals—guilt. So as I replenish my closet this spring, I am asking different questions: will this simplify my wardrobe and life? 

And the pieces I answer YES! to that question are the no-nonsense pieces I could throw on with jeans, sandals, boots, under a cardigan, with a jacket, with no need for accessories. The kind of pieces that just work. Or they're the pieces where I say "if I buy this awesome brown cardigan I will get rid of the 5 so-so brown cardigans I have" and then actually do it. 

And a simpler wardrobe means more room to enjoy the simple and beautiful things in life.
