Curating a somewhat minimal wardrobe.

After reading Sophie's breakdown of her minimal wardrobe I felt inspired to catalogue the pieces in my wardrobe and, I must say, the process has been far more useful for me than I thought it would be. I can't remember the last time I bought a new piece of clothing and just assumed that I was wearing pretty much everything in my, fairly small, wardrobe. Turns out I was wrong. I have a ridiculous amount of cardigans, I can't remember the last time I wore my only pair of jeans, and for someone who pretty much solely wears dresses I sure do have a lot of tops.

In reality my whole wardrobe could just consist of 4 black dresses, 4 pairs of leggings and 4 black cardigans and I'd be very happy. Whilst that may be a bit extreme, there are certainly at least a handful of pieces that I could part with and I probably wouldn't notice. We'll see.
