While doing my daily “let me learn something new about Art” research I stumbled upon the Minimalists.com a blog curated by Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus where they write about living a meaningful life with less tangible and intangible baggage. Something we as Americans could learn something from. We are daily bombarded with constant advertising for new things that we don’t necessarily need but desperately want.
The What is Minimalism article on their site brought me back to thinking about the task I’ve many times thought of embarking on but always end on not following through. While I can’t honestly say I will completely devote myself to having a minimalist lifestyle just yet, I do want to slowly morph my surroundings so one day I can perhaps call my self a Minimalist.
This relates to the Minimalist lifestyle movement, where you stripped down to just maintaining the essentials.
Quality over Quantity- Relates to the conscious decision of investing in timeless pieces that you’ll be able to wear for years, decades, and eventually past down to future generations as heirlooms. I am trying to slowly transform my wardrobe into a collection of timeless pieces that will work for any occasion.
