Last Sunday afternoon, Mr. Romantic and I went to see Breakfast at Tiffany’s at a local movie theatre. It’s one of my favourite activities that we do!
Even though I’ve seen this film before, somehow it was a different for me this time.
As I was staring up at the screen at the flawless Audrey Hepburn, I couldn’t help but admire her very simple, yet very stylish and timeless wardrobe.
Oh I know I’m not the first to write about Audrey’s fashion sense. She’s pretty much a fashion icon!
I noticed how minimalistic her wardrobe was. At least, in this film. In many scenes, she was wearing the same black dress. However, just by changing her accessories, it made it look like a completely different outfit. I could tell that what she was wearing was of good quality.
That’s really the key, right? Have only a few simple, classic, stylish, timeless, good quality pieces, and have fun with your accessories.
So, I’ve been inspired (again) to rethink my capsule minimalist wardrobe (again).
I have to admit that I haven’t stuck to my goal to create a minimalist capsule wardrobe. But that’s fine, as long as I get back on track.
I really love Audrey’s style. However, I won’t completely imitate or try to replicate her style. But I will use it as inspiration.
Until the end of January, I’ll put on paper what I want my minimalist wardrobe to look like. I’ve somewhat done this before when I wrote about carrying on with my carry-on. So, it shouldn’t take me too long to do.
In February, I’ll take action and purge out of my wardrobe what doesn’t fit with my plan.
In March, I want to finalize my minimalist capsule wardrobe because that is what I want to bring when Mr. Romantic and I go to Europe. I think March should be a good month for this since stores usually have their spring clothing lines out by then.
Who knew that an afternoon Breakfast at Tiffany's with Mr. Romantic would lead me back to figuring out my minimalist capsule wardrobe... Inspiration is everywhere!
