07 Jan THE MINIMALIST WARDROBE
We all know that feeling too well. You’re going somewhere nice only to get dressed and find that you have nothing to wear. Despite your wardrobe looking like an overstocked thrift store, your jeans are too tight, none of the colours match, and all of your ‘good’ shoes are just plain uncomfortable.
