What I wore to work yesterday, in my go-to colour scheme of black, white and nude. Decluttering our home has especially required me to simplify my wardrobe, which was really just one giant cupboard of guilt, consumerism and clutter. It’s still a work in progress.

Yes! This is me exactly – endless cycles of purging and rebuying, but hopefully refining and getting closer to the goal. Thanks Nicki! Good luck with your declutter! x

‘One giant cupboard of guilt, consumerism and clutter’ – same as my wardrobe! I gave 50% to charity a couple of weeks ago and am sorting through the rest as I go. Sometimes I really want to get rid of everyyythinggg and start again (in my house in general), but then with starting again there is consumerism and the only way to go is just to chip away and strip it down to bare essentials. Love your blog and your photos xx

this is an excellent idea! I have found I can get away with wearing children’s sweatpants from Zara for work and nobody notices – or at least, nobody says anything which is nearly the same thing! 😀 anything that makes Monday feel less like being reborn is a good thing, I say!
& thank you! xx

My current thing is to wear more casual outfits on Mondays. I don’t know why but it just started to happen 🙂 makes my Mondays feel more like Fridays. I like the simplicity of this outfit. It works so well!
