This month I’m starting my spring capsule wardrobe. I switch a few things up between Autumn and Winter and again in Spring and Summer, but the more dramatic changes only happen twice a year. Although the majority of clothes stays the same during the year, I do enjoy a few fresh pieces!
When you’re working with a smaller wardrobe, sometimes it’s nice to switch things up a little. I’ve been looking at ways to update my wardrobe, here are a few clothing hacks I use:
CRISP & CLEAN SPRING OUTFITS
As I’m writing this it’s super cold, but nevertheless I’m slowly starting to think about my spring capsule wardrobe. And I have been researching spring outfits on the ol’ interwebz. I have a capsule wardrobe for a while now and I learned to do a lot of research before I get to the actual shopping process. If I don’t, I end up buying things that I don’t really need or that aren’t my perfect piece. And when you’re working with a capsule wardrobe, you want to make sure that you love every single piece!
This weekend I’m going on a weekend getaway in Europe. I’m excited, because it’s my first trip of the year and I will be visiting Prague for a couple of days. We’re going by plane and are only taking hand luggage, which means I have to carefully decide what I’m bringing with me. When it comes to travel clothes, I always try to look for items that I can wear various ways.
I’m starting off 2017 fresh and focused and set a few goals for myself. I want to do a monthly update to keep myself on track and hopefully motivate some of you to stay focused too! If you want to read more about my goals and I wrote a blog post all about them called my minimalism goals for 2017.
MY FAVORITE SPRING TRENDS
If you want to look trendy or incorporate trendy items in your wardrobe, it’s important to find out of they suit you and your wardrobe. Now I don’t think there’s anything that you shouldn’t wear – if you love something, go for it! I do however think it’s important to be aware of your figure and try to make something work for you. Clothes should compliment you, not the other way around. So let’s have a look at five of my personal favorite spring trends.
You know I’m a big fan of wide legged trousers, but when it comes down to incorporating new shapes into your wardrobe, sometimes you just need to visualize it. Especially with something as dramatic as styling wide legged trousers, you want to make sure you can build different silhouettes with a single pair.
As I’ve decided to spend my time and money on experiences instead of materialistic things, I’ve cut down on shopping in 2016. My aim for 2017 is to be even more frugal, although I’m not looking to pinch on my style – I just want to make better choices. Because it’s important to spend your money wisely, here are my tips on how to save money on shopping for clothes.

I’m never really one to make New Year’s Resolutions or define clear goals, but as I’m getting older and my life is vanishing before my eyes (being a bit dramatic here), I want to live life to the fullest!
