Happy Monday, Everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. This weekend, I had a chance to spend some time continuing to clean out my closet using my favorite book of the moment, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” (more about my experience here). As I’ve shared before, I can’t get enough of this book because it teaches you a bunch of hacks for cleaning up, purging and organizing your space that really make sense. Sharing a look today inspired by a basic boyfriend shirt that continues to bring me joy. Almost everything else had to go!
Outfit Of The Day
Sharing one of my favorite weekend looks today that I’ve been wearing on repeat.
Wearing distressed denim cut-offs, a blue and white striped button-down, classic round sunnies and nude heels. I also love dressing this look even further down with flats, sneakers or sandals.
I topped off the look with a couple of gold layered necklaces. I’m loving dainty jewelry right now that I can wear with every outfit.
The “KonMari” Method
Reading Marie Kondo’s book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” is helping me to pair down my closet and get organized.
Marie basically teaches you to put all of your clothes in a giant heap. Then, one by one, you feel each piece of clothing to see if it brings you joy. Any piece that doesn’t bring you joy should be given away or thrown out. You ultimately only keep only the pieces you have a true affinity towards. You can then do this in your kitchen, bathroom, etc.
For me, it’s been the best feeling to get rid of all of the excess I’ve been storing for way too long. Marie’s “KonMari” method has helped me to truly appreciate the clothes that bring me the most joy. Ever since I started organizing, I get up in the morning and it’s so much easier to get dressed because my closet is so much cleaner and everything is easier to find. Marie reaches you how to fold all of your clothing so that it’s easy to store, how to sort it by color and weight and how to display your shoes so you can easily see all of your options in front of you.
This experience has also helped me to realize that some of my favorite looks are basics that I can mix and match and wear on repeat. I don’t receive as much joy from pieces with patterns that are too loud or that I can only wear a couple of times.
Likewise, thanks to the KonMari method, today’s outfit was definitely inspired by by growing love for minimalism.
