I know there are some folk who do no to little jewelry, but I like to have more than that. It makes me happy. And that’s the beauty of minimalism (one of my fave books on this subject). It looks different for every single person. So if you are on a journey to declutter and minimize your life and things and jewelry has been neglected, these suggestions may help you out. Today on the blog, I’m sharing four easy ways to create a minimalist jewelry collection.

  1. Pull from your clothing palette for inspiration on colours to keep. I had a ton of jewelry in so many colours and was able to minimize some by just looking at five main colours I wore in my minimal type wardrobe/capsule wardrobe.
  2. Declutter all poor quality jewelry. It goes without saying that rusted pieces or pieces that destroy your earlobs needs to go. Yesterday. I loved these earrings, but they were low quality. I should have known better, but have learned better going forward!
  3. Versatility. I try to focus on pieces that can be worn different ways such as a bracelet that can also be a necklace or a 3 in 1 necklace. Having versatility in your jewelry collection will mean you will have less pieces overall.
  4. Durability. Not easily breakable. I have four children, but even if I didn’t, a good quality piece that is durable is so key! It’ll stand the test of time and save you money too.

And if your wardrobe needs a total rehaul and you have a hard time knowing where to start, you may enjoy my Simple Capsule Wardrobe Guide. Some recent feedback on it: “Ahhh Kelly! That was brilliant! I’m going to do some sorting this weekend, more purging, and most importantly writing down what I have vs what I need. Thank you!!!” Want to know more about how I fine tuned my whole wardrobe and follow along the simple steps? You may like my Simple Capsule Wardrobe Guide ebook (new and updated).

Hi, I’m Kelly! I’m a mother of four children - three boys, one toddler girl - and our family lives on the beautiful east coast of Canada. I’m a past elementary teacher, turned stay at home, work at home mom eight years ago after I had my second child. I’ve found that the busier I’ve become and as my children age, that it’s become even more important to figure out what is most important to me and us as a family. Living a simpler lifestyle has helped us in so many ways in our home life - from better routines to faster tidying up times. It has been through my children that I have been inspired to learn how to effectively manage my time and to simplify in all areas of my home and life. I enjoy helping busy moms simplify home life by teaching flexible planning methods and skills. Enjoyed this blog and think it would be helpful to others? I'd love if you shared it. Thank you!
