Casual style

I'm on a mission to reduce my possessions by 50%. Obviously, this involves buying new things. I'm donating or throwing out all the clothes I don't like/are beyond repair, but that is most of my wardrobe, so it makes sense to replace them with some items I might actually wear. Logical, right?

Some casual items I have spotted: 1. Ally Capellino mini satchel {£100}, 2. Striped scarf {£25}, 3. Wyldes Print pumps {£79}, 4. & 5. - not quite shorts weather yet, but have you seen the new collaboration between Laura Ashley and the People Tree? There is a fab jumpsuit {I can't tell you how hideous I would look in it, but I'm sure there's someone younger and skinnier who would rock the look.} I'm very tempted by the shorts {£55} and this skirt {£55}.

i too am on a purge but am driven to distraction by all the gorgeous spring-y things about. had to check out the jumpsuit. no i couldn't. or could i? would love to try but fear i may look too much like my baby girl!
the ally satchel is adorable.
good luck with your reducing ways. x

Wouldn't it be nice if we could renew our wardrobe every season? Chuck out everything and start again with the new Spring colours and everything matching everything else!

Loving these! Especially the skirt and shoes. Don't think I could pull off the shorts though.. I've got the worst set of corned beef legs that have ever (rarely) seen the light of day!

any chance you are doing a car boot sale!?

Geri - if you saw what I'm getting rid of, then honestly, you would not even want it at car boot sale prices. I am cutting most of it up into rags!

Really really great collection! Each item is great.

Hazel said...

this is a great idea... I could take a left out of your book on this! I'm moving soon and wonder how much I'll pack and the unpack that will still remain unused.
There is a rumour that you only need 12 pieces in your wardrobe... (not sure I believe that though!)

Ha ha, I do that too... a purge and then acquire new stuff. Somehow having new stuff makes it all seem more streamlined though!

Lynne said...

Hazel - I definitely think around 20 items of clothes would be enough. Kelly - I think you would look great in that jumpsuit! Maybe it needs heels... Conversation Pieces - I totally agree! Lovely new things :)
