This is NOT minimalism.

4uu1m7rqpvcy.jpgThis is NOT minimalism. This is magazine styled, copy selling, high fashion photography. In reality, your clothes are more colorful and not perfectly pressed. You don’t have a Chanel bag sitting in your closet. You have more than two pairs of shoes and they are worn. If this is the minimalism that enticed you to find the movement, that’s not a bad thing. However, be realistic in your journey. Owning less is not about being perfect or beautiful (by pop culture standards). If you aspire to this black and white, picture perfect style, you will never feel good enough. Release what does not serve you and respect what does. That is minimalism.
