Since I’ve shared different variations of my minimalist wardrobe throughout the years, I thought I would do a deep dive into my shoe collection.
Et voilà! The Fall 10×10 Challenge has finished and I’m back to recap the experience.
It was super fun participating in the challenge. While I enjoyed putting together outfits and challenging my personal style, the best part was following along with the community and connecting with other like-minded souls. I was also surprised that my biggest take-away was not style related (more on that below).
Today marks the first day of the Fall 10×10 Challenge!
This is a style challenge where you create 10 outfits from 10 pieces that you wear over the course of 10 days. It’s a fun way to get creative with your clothes and take a minimalist wardrobe for a spin.
Today I’m sharing my minimalist wardrobe.
These are stylish workhorses that I wear on an regular basis. They take me from work at the office to wine dates with my girls, dinner parties on the weekends, and everything in-between. I haven’t included things like work out clothes, jewelry, and loungewear but, don’t worry, posts on those mini capsules are coming soon.
There are a lot of perks when it comes to packing light. You avoid extra baggage fees, don’t have to worry about losing your luggage, and can get around easily.
Here are a few of the tips that will help you pack light for your next trip. Bonne chance et bon voyage!
Though I hate to admit it, I think about my personal style quite a lot. What to wear, where to buy it, why I wear it, and what it all means. These are the thoughts that run through my mind.
A while back Rubyellen from Cakies wrote a post about her personal style, which inspired me to write about my own personal style.
Disclaimer: I am not a makeup guru. I didn’t really wear makeup until my mid-twenties and, if I’m being totally honest, I still feel like I don’t know how to properly put my face on.
It’s possible that my minimalist makeup is a result of being a novice. Or maybe it’s all those years my dad told me I didn’t need it. Either way, here’s what I own and why I wear it.
French Girl style is a thing. Believe me, I’ve read every single article, blog post, and book about it. It’s the striped shirt, ballet flats, and trench coat all wrapped up in a little bit of je ne sais quoi.
Everything I know about dressing like a French Girl I learned from a French Guy.
See, last fall I was getting ready for our trip back to France and the pressure to be chic was real. So, I went on a shopping spree and came home with a ton of shopping bags.
Giddy with excitement, I rushed to try on my new clothes and walked out to show my husband. It was then that I realized we were dressed almost exactly alike and I had, apparently, learned a few things about French style from him.
As a chic minimalist, the stuff I keep in my Reed Krakoff Atlantique bag is practical yet stylish. A leather wallet with no logo, wear-everywhere sunglasses, some chapstick, travel-sized perfume in a signature scent, and a few other essentials in black, bien sûr. continue reading
Wardrobes are a big deal these days.
From the Capsule Wardrobe, Project 333, and the minimalist approach to the 5-Piece French Wardrobe—which is not to be confused with the 10-Piece Wardrobe—and the Kon-Mari Method, there are a million different ways to strategically dress yourself and deal with the contents of your closet.
Allow me to introduce the Modern French Wardrobe, which is less about rules and restrictions and more about what I actually have hanging in my own closet.
The first time we went to the France in the winter I made a rookie mistake and didn’t pack very well. In my own defense, I’m Californian and was totally unaware of what a real winter entails.
