Keeping It In Sight



sandals: Topshop (sold out unfortunately)
nails: silver nail foil

Getting rid of things is so liberating. I’ve been throwing out more and more stuff, not only from my wardrobe, but also from the rest of the house. Only the things that have true value or that I absolutely love to death are allowed to stay. It is stuff that you don’t want to put away in a drawer but keep it in sight! Like this white pile of old Dazed & Confused magazines and flat white boxes.

    Great initiative, I really need to do the same! Ironically working in fashion has made me realise that you don’t need so many clothes, just a few carefully timeless and quality pieces, with a fun element to them.

    I have to do this too. My closets are full of stuff I don’t really need.
    PS: I like how your toenails match with your sandals 😉

    I just cleaned out my stuff today & threw out a lot of stuff that’s been ‘hiding’ away behind everything. I love that you posted this.

    I also love your sandals.

  11. I’m leaving for university in a month or so, and have been using this time to clear out all the stuff I have collected over the years.

    It feels so good to get rid of everything and just have things and clothes that I really love and find attractive. Your wonderful blog has inspired me with this! Thank you!

    Your home looks so amazing and minimalist…I’d love to see a full tour one day on the blog!

    I absolutely love minimizing my junk. At first, it seems so overwhelming and intimidating, but once its cleaned out and never to be thought of again, there’s this massive liberation.

    And, by the way, I don’t blame those shoes for being sold out – they’re absolutely gorgeous.

    Shoes are sweet and the nail polish is so cool! 🙂

  16. I’ve started what you’ve been doing for a few days now. I started with the house and now my own wardrobe. Only the really lovely pieces indeed! Make space for…more trash in the future?? LOL

  24. Oh gosh, nail foils. It’s so hard to find them where I live. They work so well for you! Good luck with your cleaning!

    Hi ! I’ve bought some shoes a few time ago, and when I put them on my feet, it totally reminds me your style, and they only cost 20€ during the sale, I’ve thought that you might like them.

    Ah, this is very inspiring – I have so many things and clutter!
    None of it is worth much money (ha ha) but I have a tendancy to buy lots of ‘treasures’

    I love how clean your blog is, always inspires me!

  44. These interior insights of u give me a lot of inspiration. Having my environment “minimalized” gives me the freedom to move forward faster.
