This weekend I gave away five bags filled with clothes, shoes and accessories to Goodwill. And I have another two ready for a consignment store. I have been downsizing this whole year, while adding only classic, practical and investment pieces to my closet. Some of my recent purchases have been a comfy and versatile duster cardigan, tan ankle boots which practically go with everything, dresses from my last two outfit posts (here and here). And that's all the shopping I have done and plan to do for Fall 2015 (The only exceptions will be more fitness wear.)
My aim for the past couple of years have been to create one of those minimal closets which is filled with investment pieces or with one-of-a-kind pieces which can be mixed and paired with each other. I am happy to announce that I am making continued success in that direction. And as it happens, this is sort-of French style of shopping (and dressing). I can't say where I got my inspiration but I am happy to be able to relate to French culture in this (and more) areas of my personality.
Talking of ... I had a fun podcast with my blogging buddy Flo on the topic of minimalist wardrobe and french style. If you are interested in eavesdropping on our conversation scroll down and hear it. There are some fun (controversial?) comments in there.
Moving on to today's outfit post, it is my easiest trick to transition my summer dresses into fall - wear them with a scarf and boots. However, looks like going forward the weather is not going to allow for bare legs no more! *insert sad face*
