Few months ago I started the process of cleaning out my closet of some very unnecessary items. In order for that to work, I also had to kick out my shopping habits that I’ve developed over the years. Not going to go into details and steps, I’m leaving that for another post.

When I was a teen, I used to spend so much time in front of my wardrobe and it always took me hours to choose the outfit for the day. Not counting the right shoes, jewelry and other accessories. I won’t even mention hair and make-up. As I got older, I started to realize that: a) the time I spend in front of my closet in the morning could be spent eating breakfast and b) I don’t have that kind of time to begin with. Basically, time and practicality are the two main reasons I decided it was time for a change. A change in both amount and colors of my clothes. I ditched those pieces that were too colorful, too quirky and couldn’t really be paired with anything else (and I somehow had a lot of those).

Since I had built somewhat cohesive wardrobe this past year, I wanted to introduce you to my wardrobe essentials. I reorganize my closet twice a year and pull the pieces I’d use and abuse for the season to the front of my closet. At the moment, basics are what I feel most comfortable in. The real summer weather has finally arrived and the hot, dry air makes me dizzy and, well, too lazy to get creative with my outfits. These days, I just go with cut offs, a basic cotton tee, sneaks and some simple jewelry.

You are so right chica! Basics are the essentials to any wardrobe, I’ve gotten rid of so many “trendy” pieces in my closet and I feel so much better for it! Less clutter to sift through! Great collection!

I remember when it was so easy to find real cheap 501, now they are all at least 10€. I should have bought all of them when i was finding them for less than 3€ ! Your sneakers remind me that i have a thing for Superga’s lately, love it !

Oh man, I need a wardrobe…
Did I mention how much I enjoy reading about other people their organising tactics?
Thank you, I now believe that I’ve found the motivation to do that myself too ;)

Hehehe I also find that extra time in the morning for sleeping rather than breakfast! I’ve been cleaning out my own, mostly bold stuff is heading out the door since I always sway towards a simple tank and jean combo these days!
