Simplifying Your Wardrobe + My Journey Toward Minimalism

Since October, I have minimized my wardrobe from over 400 items down to 112 items. This includes socks, shoes, scarves, winter gear, and all regular clothing items.

The way you choose to simplify your wardrobe will depend on your career, lifestyle, and the climate where you live. Everyone is different. In this video, I share what has worked well for me. Eventually, I am sure I will naturally have less than 90 items, but I am not fixated on any specific number. Minimizing for me has been a gradual process. It’s just about having what you need and loving what you have.

What I Have in My Wardrobe for the Entire Year (Total: 112 items):

13 pairs of shoes
2 bags
1 wallet/clutch
9 scarves
5 workout outfits
3 pajama sets
4 pairs of jeans
2 pairs of leggings
1 pair of black capris
1 pair of neutral shorts
8 tank tops
5 t-shirts
1 flannel shirt
15 sweaters
1 poncho
1 hooded sweatshirt
3 jackets/coats
2 bathing suits
1 beach cover-up
12 pairs of socks
4 pairs of dress slacks
4 dress shirts
1 knitted vest
1 short-sleeved dress top
2 blazers
1 pencil skirt
1 pair of boot cuffs
2 holiday shirts
1 dress
1 hat
1 ear warmer
1 pair of gloves
2 tights

  1. Hi Mary,
    I’m so glad to have found you on youtube and here as well. I also love Brianna of Love Raw Vegan. We have some common ground: I’m a semi-minimalist, am interested in natural products, teach at a university (in South Korea), and loved my recent stay at the Tiny House Hotel in Portland. I look forward to upcoming videos and blog posts. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Jeannie!
      I am so happy that you found me. I love Brianna too. She is wonderful. I hope to get to know you more! Thank you for your kind note. And I must hear more about the tiny house hotel! Amazing!
