Capsule Wardrobe #1

Good Morning All, today we will talk about minimalism, as you know I’m transitioning to a minimalist life so I’m making a lot of changes.

Part of this changes is to create a capsule wardrobe, define a style and choose accessories that really match my personality and that I’ll be using for at least 2 years.

Might sound boring, right? Yes, can sound boring but at the same time it makes life simple…

Just think of how simple it will be in the morning to choose what to wear having a capsule wardrobe finished!!!

I’ve been thinking a lot about all the styles I had in the last 15 years and I can say that none of them really made me happy and feel comfortable. I transitioned from casual/rock, casual/chic and casual/sport… At the end i ended up wearing the same things…

The girls that are reading me will agree that girls build their style around the bag they are currently rocking around.

The bag for me has to be small but at the same time it has to have enough space to carry my planner (which is a B5) my iPads, full size wallet, little toiletry and pens. Besides that glass case and many other small things.

The style needs to be clean and minimalist preferable a black leather bag.

I found a bag which I love and have been using it for a long time but, the problem was that I had to redimension a lot… I had to buy a smaller planner to fit in the bag and than re-write everything on my actual planner at home (I don’t like having many planners), than during the day at some point I just wish I could carry the bag on a different way for a while… like a backpack or on my shoulder just because I got sick of carrying my bag as crossbody.

So what I have been searching for the last year was a convertible bag that looked simple, minimalist but had that lux style…

I found it!!!

This bag is exactly what I’ve been searching  for… You can wear it in 4 different ways and as you can see it fits everything that I need to take with me during the day… It would even fit a PC… The design is minimalistic, black and leather, Perfect!

Of course I wont wear the same bag weekends and evenings out but I still want the same minimalistic style and for my surprise here we go they made the small version…

Perfect!

This bag solved a big problem for the creation of my capsule wardrobe, because I need 33 items including accessories… This two bags made it possible to sell my work bag which I carried my laptop and documents for work, my weak day bag which you can find on the post what’s in my bag at Beautyonfocus, the evening bag and the weekend bag I used if we went somewhere and I needed to pack lunch or extra clothes for hiking… Ohh I was about to forget, this bag can be used by man too.

Biggest problem solved! Now I can focus on the clothes. Project 333 I’m almost there and will post all about it.

Do you guys like the Bag?
