Confession time: I am a former shopaholic turned aspiring minimalist.
Minimalism does not come easy to me. My natural inclination is to grab whatever free goodies are thrown my way and acquire as many shoes as humanly possible. But since launching my own business last fall, my life has started to feel physically and emotionally cluttered.
With less time than ever and energy to waste on not-so-important decisions like getting dressed, crafting a capsule wardrobe became a new form of mindfulness for me. (Full disclosure, my business, IMBY, is a capsule-inspired fashion brand, so I felt the extra need to try it out to get a full perspective on what I was preaching.)
