minimal | when less is more

4/18/14


Come Spring, I start to crave the closet + household purge. I want things to feel clean, light, and airy. This can be sooo hard to obtain when I am attached to so many of my belongings. This year I am really going to push myself to rid my life of a bit more than I probably should. I desire to begin filling my life with less quantity and more quality. Free myself of clutter, and only hold onto a few statement pieces! I'm going back to the basics!

The minimalist lifestyle really inspires me and draws me in! Here are a few of the pieces that have been speaking to me lately. Once I let go of the old, I'm hoping I'll be able to purchase a couple new things (such as these below) that align more with my lifestyle vision :]

 
the indigo series // considerthewldflwrs


the cocoon collection // considerthewldflwrs

Considerthewldflwrs is a breathtaking jewelry shop! "Each design and collection is uniquely inspired often by travel, natural imperfections + a thirst for discover". I love how they capture simplicity and grace within extremely creative pieces. With 25% of each sale going to a good cause, you should definitely check out their site and stay a while! considerthewldflwrs.com


The Royal Jumper // Hackwith Design House


Bokeh Top // Hackwith Design House

Be still my heart. I'd be fine with a closet of ten pieces, if they looked just like these. Lisa Hackwith of Hackwith Design House has a goal of creating the highlights of your closet! And she does just that! With only 25 of each product, HDH clothing total embraces rareness and uniqueness - but they sell out fast! hackwithdesignhouse.com/



Set of 3 Ombre, Gradient, Faceted Vessels // The Object Enthusiast


Speckled Porcelain Ring Dish with Golden Rim // The Object Enthusiast

These would make perfect little pieces for my dream home! I'd put succulents in the vessels and my go-to jewelry in the ring dish. Emily Reinhardt, the owner of The Object Enthusiast, aspires to "create heirlooms for the modern traditionalist". I guess that makes me a modern traditionalist because her creations are right up my alley. Visit her etsy shop! You won't be disappointed! etsy.com/shop/theobjectenthusiast

How do you view belongings in relation to your lifestyle?

Happy friday friends!

Looking back on these shots, I realize I was so busy taking pictures that I forgot to have S'MORES!!! I mean come on. That's a big deal. It is so easy to live a life of full of doing and forget to take time for being. Just being. No planning or creating or seeking or striving. But in a world that is so obsessed with productivity and output, how does someone just be? When there are so many things to get done? Never-ending to do lists and my personal favorite, "yeah...never going to get to this" list.

What do you do when you get so caught up in making sure you're being productive ...that you realize you aren't taking time to just live? What do you do to just be?
