It would seem that the mint is the flavour of this month. Many of you liked its first appearance in this post so I dug out another piece in the same hue. I’ve had this top for eons but it is a perennial favourite. Each time I embark on a spring clean, I still find myself unable to part with it. Hence why I’m still at a loss with my detoxing process…

As you know, I’ve been under the spell of minimalism for some time and am still endeavouring to channel the theme into my lifestyle. Lately, since I’ve had so much free time (being a new mom is awesome!) I’ve been selling my swag on eBay, with the hope of giving my closet more breathing space. Wardrobe resuscitation, if you will. I am seriously craving more order, less clutter. Even my diet this year has become healthier and cleaner. Thank God. Guess what helped eradicate my decade-long addiction to junk food? Nursing Winston. Never estimate what a mother would do for her child.

How about you? Have you radically changed your lifestyle lately? Any tips?

The mint is great with the black and white! Such a nice outfit :)

Hope your new minimalism kick continues! I desperately need the inspiration to do something similar, pulled out a top from my wardrobe the other day that I remember wearing in 2009! I hold onto things a while…..

I know the feeling- some pieces you just can’t let go, especially if they’re well cut, suit your shape and are made from great material. Hold on to it if it stands the test of time!
