Building your Capsule Wardrobe: Step 2 – The Great Purge

Hello MinimalistGirlBlog readers! I have to say, I am sorry this post has taken me so long to get around to, I have had some computer issues (I am actually in the library to post this because my personal computer is very sick right now, and at the doctor. The doctors say the prognosis doesn’t look good though). However, I am here now to post this (and will post before I make edits, so don’t judge. I will edit later) and I hope you enjoy it, share with your friends, and comment below. It means a lot to me that people have read my posts.

Now that you are inspired and have ideas in mind for the look you might like to go for, you can begin to purge your wardrobe of all those pieces that you don’t wear or don’t need anymore.

It began as a simple aspiration to be able to more easily get dressed in the mornings and to feel better in what I was wearing. I really utilized Pinterest more than anything to help gain my inspiration for the huge undertaking that was sorting and donating my clothing. I donated bags and bags of clothing over many different sessions of sorting my clothing. To break down the process a little bit for you, I will give you a rough estimate of the steps I took to get to where I am today: Continue reading “Building my Minimalist Wardrobe: Overview”

Minimalism in College

I think it is important to note here that this is my first post, and so here you will find musings of a college sophomore on the ways to be minimalist in college.

Personally, I feel that this is a topic that is severely under-recognized in the minimalist community.  I know that there are some things that I simply cannot do as a minimalist in college that some people can do as “real adults” to really follow through on their minimalism. For example, I am a broke college student and let’s be real about what that really means: Continue reading “Minimalism in College”
