I've read about the '5 piece French wardrobe' a long time ago, but never thought it would be something for me. I'm a I-want-it-and-I-want-it-now kinda girl, thinking and over thinking an item doesn't really sound like me.
But (with a capital B), me and my boyfriend are seriously looking for a new apartment so I thought this was the perfect time to take a closer look at my shopping behavior. I want to spend my money more thoughtful so I have more money to spend on the apartment.
Now let me explain the '5 piece French wardrobe'. It's basically about only buying 5 items per season, what those items are is up to you. To make the 5 piece principle work you also have to put together a good basics collection, which is also different for everybody. I put together a list of my 5 pieces and my basics.
I want to start next weekend with cleaning out my closet to get a good look at what I have and what I want to keep.
- Bright colored sundress
- Cream white short
