I’ve decided to make a change towards something that I feel better represents my passions and where I want to take A Casual Collection. You can find me at: http://www.livesimplywithemily.com I hope to see you there! Sincerely, Emily
Today I want to talk about what I like to call a ‘simple wardrobe’ (also known as a capsule wardrobe). If you don’t know what that is, it’s essentially a curated closet that has a limited number of items which all work together and match your personal style. As of today, I’m still working towards a fully simplified wardrobe, but it’s already had so much of a positive impact on my life. This is why I wanted to share with you my top 5 reasons why you should simplify your wardrobe, too!
Journaling is a great way for me to keep myself on track and organized, relieve stress, and express myself. Ever since I can remember, I’ve had a certain fascination with journals and notebooks. When I was little, as soon as I got my allowance I’d head to the store to spend it on a new book of blank lined pages, waiting to be filled. I got excited every September to go shopping for school supplies and stationery (let’s be honest – I still do!) I loved the idea of expressing myself through writing and being organized.
Taking proper care of your clothes is one of the most important things you can do to get the most out of your closet. It keeps clothes looking new longer, encourages you to wear them more often, and reduces the need to replace them. It really comes down to only two things: laundering and storage. Today I wanted to share 7 rules that I follow that help me take the best care of my clothes and keep my wardrobe looking in top-shape!
I’ve started to notice that one of the biggest benefits of living a more simple life with less is the amount of money I’m saving. I never used to put too much emphasis on saving money, and actually had really irresponsible spending habits, especially once I started working full-time. But, it’s never too late to start building habits that your wallet will thank you for. So, here is a short infographic I put together to show 25 money-saving habits I’ve developed over the past couple of months on my journey to minimalism.
