MINIMAL ME PART ONE // THE WARDROBE INVENTORY: SS14/15

Sunday, September 21, 2014


It’s been some time since I wrote about my introduction to minimalism. While I have not abandoned the idea, I've not had time to take more steps towards simplifying my wardrobe. This weekend I vowed to find the time to do a wardrobe detox, and take stock of what I have, what I need and what I want.

I want the focus of this post to be around detoxing your wardrobe though (we’ll get to the needs and wants later). As some of you may know, I am completely obsessed with into-mind.com. So naturally I used this guide to assist me with my wardrobe detox.

It was a lot simpler than I expected:

LIFE LATELY ACCORDING TO MY IPHONE // #007

ROW 1

one // I do so love my new work notebook from Typo 
two // Sophie is so mobile, she is always running off in any and every direction at any given moment
three // I wore make-up to work everyday for one whole week! If you know me, you'll know why that's noteworthy. It really was not as time consuming as I often make it out to be... 

ROW 2

four // numbers can be numbing -- but in the best way. This is my favorite relaxation tool 
five // look at those lips! 
six // the only upside to being too busy to be a home maker is chinese take-out! Monks does it best. 

ROW 3

seven // the weather has been so divine since the 1st of September, Sophie even got to wear her first summer dress of the season! 
eight // playing on the slide in Constantia Village
nine // daddy & daughter time on the couch, sharing chips & watching F1

THIS IS WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE WHEN DOVES CRY (AND BY DOVES I DO MEAN MOMS OF TODDLERS)

Listen up, I am about to lay some truth on you and you may not be ready for it… babies are super easy. I now accept this as a fact. You may be a new mom with a new baby reading this, thinking I am clueless/insane because babies are difficult. I am not. They are not. I assure you. Do you want to know where my motherly wisdom stems from? It stems from the sweet, innocent, angel baby I had, morphing into a stubborn, smacking, spitting, shouting, hair pulling, tantrum throwing toddler.

Wow.

To say that I am unprepared for this stage of Sophie’s development would be a superb understatement.
