Minimal year round capsule wardrobe

I’ve never considered myself very stylish. I wanted to feel stylish but always felt like I was pretending when it came to clothes. ‘Who would I try to be this week?’ I grew up reading fashion magazines, thinking the women in them looked perfect. I wanted to be perfect too so I would try and dress like them. I never knew what my ‘style’ was. I just used to buy whatever the celeb I was into at that time was wearing or what glamour magazine told me to. If I saw a friend looking good in something, I’d maybe buy that.

This was a first for me and being the itinerary maniac I am (think Monica from FRIENDS), it felt very strange. In an attempt to simplify my travels and apply a little minimalism, I’m trying to spend less time researching and planning. It can be really time consuming, not to mention expensive, when you’re cramming as much in as possible.

IN PRAISE OF  TRAVELLING LIGHT. A minimalist approach to travel. Why I choose to only travel with a carry on suitcase.

In praise of traveling light - Jessica Rose Williams

Take a look at my Instagram and you’ll see that I love to travel. This is nothing new, I’ve always suffered from the desire to wander but lately, what I take with me has changed significantly. I take so much less. Maximising my luggage allowance always seemed likethe the necessary thing to do because I’d want to take as much as possible away with me, you know – just in case.
