Minimalism is Fashionable

Fashion is the driving force behind this blog but being fashionable doesn’t only have to be secluded to what you wear. I love being fashionable in my home as well. In today’s world, minimalism is all the trend because people all over the world are adopting the concept that less is more.

Benefits

There are many upsides to becoming a minimalist. Not only will you be saving money that you can ultimately travel with, you will be doing something great for the Earth by creating less garbage. The personal benefits include a clearer mind, a healthier body, and more time to do the things you love. You will also experience less stress.

 

How to Become a Minimalist

This is the easiest part. All you need to do is get rid of things. It doesn’t matter where you start, just take a serious look around your home and start deciding what you want to keep and what you want to sell or give away. I know, this is not as easy as it sounds.

There is no reason to jump into this too hard if separating from your items is difficult. You can take it slow. Maybe your way of starting to transcend into the minimalist lifestyle is to simply stop purchasing new things. There are many ways to start. Just start slow and eventually you will find that the clutter you live with is no longer there.

 

Do You Wear It?

If you haven’t worn it in a year then it’s time for you to move on and give the other clothes in your closet some breathing room. The one-year thing is a rule of thumb but another way to do it is by season. When the warmer weather is on its way out, go through what you have for clothes for that season. If you didn’t wear it all summer, then put it in a pile. You can sell all those things on EBay or donate it to a shelter. You will be helping others and making your way towards minimalism.

In Your Home

There’s a lot of ways you can start turning your home into a fashionable minimalist paradise.

Let’s us take the bedroom as an example. Our bedrooms are very important because this is where we get fashionable in front of the mirror. If you are living in a small bedroom that is taken up mostly by the bed, then it might be a good idea to go smaller.

Try sleeping on a futon. A futon will not only give you a good night’s sleep if you get a good mattress, it will free up space in your bedroom to give it a cleaner and less cluttered look.

You should also stick to neutral colors like beige and white when you are thinking about bedding. The idea behind minimalism is to free your life of things that clutter your home and your mind. White has a clean look that can make you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud.

Of course, my blog is about being fashionable so if all white and beige isn’t sounding good to you, try throwing in a splash of color. Besides, that one red pillow will stand out in an all-white room more than it would if the decorations spanned every color in the gambit.

 

When You Travel

I love to travel and there is no doubt it is easier to get from one place to another if I have less to carry. So, when I head to a new part of the world I try to pack less. Packing for only a few days with the intention of wearing things more than once is the best way to go. Remember, you can always find a place to throw in a load of laundry.

Also, when you are traveling, allow yourself a great take-home piece of clothing unique to the culture. But don’t buy everything you see. Besides, there are so many cultures to experience in this world, so don’t spend all you have in one place.

When You Eat

Whether you are eating at home or out, consider how much food you really need. Sure, when we are traveling we want to try everything but let’s be honest, we don’t need to gorge ourselves with excess calories. That would only slow us down on our travels anyway.

 

Keep a Journal

Write down what you want to achieve in your journey toward minimalism or you can start to keep a blog like me. When we write things down it is easy to remember them and it makes the goal seem all the more attainable.

 

What do you think about adopting a minimalist lifestyle? Do you think it would be an easy journey or difficult? Do you think that a person can be a minimalist and fashionable at the same time?

OOTD: Red Jumpsuit

This Gabby’s Red Frill Detail Jumpsuit landed at my doorstep some days ago and I am so in love with it. I am not a massive jumpsuit wearer. I only have a couple in my wardrobe but I always admire them on others, and I love the few I got! There is something super dressy and stylish about jumpsuits. They are great for night outs and occasions where you have to play dress up.

I had the golden opportunity to select pieces from the Party Dresses category on Quiz Clothing website, and this lovely red piece was on my list. I was selected to take part in the Style it like Gabby collaboration and I was drawn to the bright colour and style of the dress, from the Gabby collection. Quiz have recently launched a collection with Love Island’s Gabby and this stylish jumpsuit is one of the amazing pieces from the collection.

This red jumpsuit is spot on! It is perfect for a great night out. I found the fabric really comfy. The detail to front, thin straps and frill hem trousers look amazing. I will be wearing the hell out of this piece.

At first, I was a bit worried about the length of the jumpsuit. I thought it would be too long but it turned out great.

I also like the fact that this jumpsuit is super easy to style. All I needed was a pair of heels and a blazer, and I was good to go. It is one of those pieces you can just put on without thinking too much.

I took some shots indoors without the black blazer, so you can see the entire look. I couldn’t brave these shots outside. It was so chilly on that day. How is the weather at your end?
