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!
Not everyone is a fan, but for me culottes are the chicest thing we’ve seen in years. I wear them in spring and summer, but never really thought about transitioning them into autumn/winter. That is… until I saw Mrs. Beckham rocking a pair with heeled boots.
Lately I have been thinking a lot about investing my time into things I really care about. I feel people nowadays feel more busy than they used to. Although we have these great tools that make our lives easier, we’re all getting busier and busier. And this feeling doesn’t limit itself to the workforce alone, my parents (who are retired) experience the same level of activity.
I guess we’re all well aware of the time we spend on social media, watching the latest talent show or endless beauty videos on YouTube. But if time is important to you, it is definitely worth to evaluate if you need certain apps in your life. However we do have access to some really interesting apps to help you save time and downsize nowadays. Here are my favourite minimalistic apps:

Never in my life did I imagine I could pack only 10 kg to spend 12 days on holiday! But when I was going on a backpacking trip to Cuba, I had to seriously cut down on luggage and start working on my capsule travel wardrobe. Luckily there’s year round pleasant climate in Cuba, which made packing a whole lot easier.
It has been a bit quiet around here and if you’re following me on Instagram than you will know that I was away exploring Lisbon and the beautiful island of Madeira. Since travelling is a great way to get use to having a capsule wardrobe if you like the idea, but you’re not sure you can manage, I thought I would share my tips on how I compiled my travel capsule wardrobe.
It was such a lovely sunny day here, so I thought I would share another one of my outfits.
A bit later than I anticipated, but here it is: my spring capsule wardrobe! There are a total of 40 pieces including 5 jackets, 2 jumpers, 1 dress, 9 tops, 1 cardigan, 5 shirts, 9 bottoms, 2 vests and 6 pairs of shoes. Jewellery, underwear, work-out clothes and accessories are not included.
As per usual my capsule wardrobe pretty monochrome. I’ve tried to inject some colour with blue denim (if you couldn’t tell: I love denim at the moment), a bit of pink, orange and purple-ish. The rest is still black, white, grey, navy and nude.
Currently I’m working on my spring capsule wardrobe. I have the majority down, but I’m still in two minds about a few items. It’s been really helpful to reflect on my winter capsule wardrobe. What items did I like and more importantly did I get a good wear out of it?
All in all I was really happy with my winter capsule. I’ve gotten a lot of wear out of it and there was enough variety for me. I’ve incorporated a lot of my autumn capsule in to my winter one, so right now I can’t wait to insert some freshness into my wardrobe.
