Say hello to this sweater — you haven’t seen it in any outfits yet because I haven’t worn it yet. Isn’t that crazy? Thirty-seven pieces in my closet, and some pieces still don’t get worn much.
Honestly, though? That’s just fine with me. I like having a few extra pieces in my closet that only come out a few times.
Is that the most minimalistic way to look at things?
Is that okay with me, though?
Because minimalism looks different from person to person.
Just like anything in life, a good idea (“Hey, let’s try out living with less!”) can quickly go too far and morph into a competition.
But the truth is, it’s not a competition. We all have different realities, we all have different needs, and we’re all going to have to find different solutions.
For me, right now, my solution is my 37 piece capsule wardrobe. But I’m guessing your solution looks a little different than mine. :) I’ve been toying with some new ways to approach a capsule wardrobe lately, so I’d really love to know — how do you approach your capsule wardrobe? What are the “rules” that work for you?
