I've been contemplating a lot on wether or not I should finally simplify my closet into blacks, whites, grays, and some beige...since truth be told, that's all I wear 99% of the time.

I came across a BuzzFeed article with a photo of an ultra-minimalist closet and it looks so clean, neat, orderly, organized and tempting.  Right not, my cabinets are just one big dumping ground, I'm almost afraid to grab things from my top shelf - I have a strong feeling an avalanche of sweaters, boxes and jewelry will come tumbling down on my face into a SUPER messy heap on the floor that I don't have any energy to clean up right now.

I'm this close to throwing everything out...but I'm so frustrated because while I'm really irritated at the volume, I'm also really attached to it.

There's some floral jackets and printed separates that I might miss like this set from ROMWE.

I hardly ever wear it but you never know right? The weather here is always warm and even if we're getting really close to summer, we can still dress as if it's mid-May...

And I can wear each piece separately, layer and match with other pieces for a totally different look...

Haist! I don't know. What do you think? Keep, pare down or just toss all care to the wind, dump everything and start anew?

One of these days, I will share a photos of my closet with you so you'll be able to understand my dilemma better. I can't find anything :((

I can so relate with this post, hahaha. I actually tried out the minimalist lifestyle months before, as the idea of having a clean, streamlined, well-edited closet seemed so appealing. I brought only 2 jeans, around 12 tops, 4 dresses and 2 pairs of shoes with me when I moved houses. (That's super konti by my standards) Ay naku ANG HIRAP I couldn't do it!! It was soooooo not doable in the long term. =) Anyway, you could try giving away stuff to your helpers or having a garage sale in your village. Or posting them here for sale for your readers!!

I have the same problem too! I've been revamping my closet one at a time and I have a plan to sell some stuff that I will no longer use but will surely miss. I'm leaning towards minimalist style now plus neutral colors and trying to stir away from bold or fancy prints for quite sometime now. haha

good luck and excited to see your new closet full of black, white, gray and beige hues :)
