Minimalist Closet — Simply Angela

I’ve finally decluttered my bulging closet! This isn’t really a “capsule wardrobe” per say, but it’s certainly more curated than before. This shows my favorite pieces and what I will genuinely wear year-round. I’m so happy to be rid of two bags of clothing. This is not quite where I would like to be, but […]
