Minimalist wardrobe

 

I have been doing a bit of reading about minimalism, must say it’s quite an interesting way of life.

I  had the wrong perception of the whole thing but I got read more from The minimalist website .

What is minimalism? If we had to sum it up in a single sentence, we would say, Minimalism is a tool to rid yourself of life’s excess in favor of focusing on what’s important—so you can find happiness, fulfillment, and freedom –

Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus

My main concentration is obviously minimalism as a fashionista. This would mean having a smaller closet size.. which is a little difficult I know!! But it’s pointless to have so many clothes in your closet but barely wear most of them .

So the idea here is to “buy less but choose well “. I think you really need to choose well depending on your everyday activity ,you could be a working girl,student etc. I will focus on the working girl and student must haves .

1. Working girl

2. Student

  These are some of the ideas for minimal outfits I could think of .. I want to try this minimal way of life and see how it goes lol .

My full names are Karen Kutemba Kakoma

Am a twenty something Accountancy student born and raised in the heart of Zambia’s city Lusaka.

Am an upcoming Personal fashion and DIY blogger. My blog is generally about My Personal fashion and DIY (Do it yourself) Projects. It’s because of this obsession with fashion that I decided I share tips on how to look the best you can be at the lowest you could spend.

I started my blog because of my love for fashion and also to equip myself and others with skills that do not require one to have a Degree or masters etc. As a youth I want to help empower other youths by helping them develop their talents and make a living through my DIY projects. My DIY projects are basically skills I learn from the internet, these are mainly from YOU Tube and Pinterest.com

My goal for this year is to learn how to sew and design my own outfits. My inspiration comes from several African fashion bloggers as well as fashion designers.
