I used to have one of those gigantic closets overflowing with shirts, jeans, dresses, and shoes, but often lamented about having nothing to wear. While I wasn't quite a hoarder, I was definitely struggling with something that so many of us struggle with: overshopping simply because I wasn't sure what I was looking for or needing.
Over the past 5 years I've gone from a 2200 square foot home with plenty of closet space, down to a 700 square foot flat in the heart of central Copenhagen with a single-door wardrobe to hold my clothes (gasp!). Downsizing and living in Europe have taught me a lot about the importance of choosing quality over quantity.
I now have a minimalist wardrobe that I feel good about, and getting dressed has never been easier. In this workbook I will walk you through my 4-phase method for clearing the clutter, defining your personal style, and dressing your best with less.

Here's a bit more detail on what you'll find inside the workbook.
The goal of The Minimalist Wardrobe is remove the overwhelm and give you a clear step-by-step process for sorting through your existing wardrobe to discover your personal style and curate a collection of clothes you love. Inside, you'll find four clear sections:
LESSON ONE: PRIORITIZE
We'll kick things off by getting clear about your priorities when it comes to clothing and defining goals for your dream wardrobe.
LESSON TWO: PURGE
In lesson two we'll begin the process of sorting through all of your existing items. But don't worry! I have a tried and true process for making this easy, and will introduce you to three different methods that will help you make clear decisions on what you should Donate, Sell, or Keep.
LESSON THREE: PLAN
The fun part, in my opinion! We'll assess what you're left with and use it as a guide to discover what your personal style is, so that you make smarter shopping choices moving forward and always have a wardrobe you're proud of! You'll end up with an organized shopping list with clear goals and priorities.
LESSON FOUR: PROCESS
We'll wrap things up by discussing the most ethical ways to donate your unwanted items, I'll share some of the best apps and websites for selling items, and walk you through the exact process I have used for years to sell my items online with minimal stress and maximum profit.
I've included a couple fun bonus items! In this section you'll find a simplified checklist to help guide you through the entire workbook, along with a Minimalist Wardrobe Essentials Guide and access to all of my favorite items!

IS THE MINIMALIST WARDROBE FOR ME?
If you have ever stood in front of your closet and felt like you hated everything in it...this is definitely for you. Most of us feel that way because we've been sucked into the trap of fast fashion, rather than discovering our personal style and focusing on creating a wardrobe around that aesthetic so that the pieces we purchase are timeless. This workbook will teach you everything you need to know!
