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.

HOW TO SAVE MONEY ON SHOPPING FOR CLOTHES

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.

4 X MINIMALISTIC APPS

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.

SPRING CAPSULE WARDROBE SS16

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.
