Fewer Better: Fall Faves

New series time! I thought it would be fun to periodically share the things I am reading, listening to, eating, wearing, watching, and generally enjoying. Read on for a quick list of the things I’m loving this season:   Listen Up I just stumbled upon the How to Build a Happy Life podcast from the […]

Closet Makeover Reveal with Designer Caitlin Flemming

I was thrilled when designer and author Caitlin Flemming asked me to help organize her closet. Caitlin’s San Francisco home is exquisitely furnished, but tight on storage space. Instead of attempting to share the tiny closet in the bedroom with her husband, Caitlin repurposed the entry coat closet for her own storage needs. She enlisted […]

My Favorite Brands and Capsule Wardrobe Staples

I’ve had a ton of requests to share my favorite brands and closet staples over the years, and I’ve held off – primarily because I felt awkward preaching about the benefits of minimalism and then bombarding you with links to consume more things. Additionally, it’s taken me a lifetime to sort out my personal style, […]

A Room Refresh with Wallpaper: Your Step-by-Step Guide

I never imagined myself becoming a wallpaper person. Growing up, I always thought wallpaper was only for wildly affluent, fancy people with high-end interior designers. Luckily all of that has changed and wallpaper is now a much more accessible design option – a simple way of adding a little fun and whimsy to any space. […]

Fewer Better: Summer Favorites

And just like that, it’s suddenly summer! To be honest, summer has never been my favorite season, (I’m more of a spring/autumn person) but this one is gearing up to be a good one. The girls are off to sleep-away camp, we’re planning our first family trip to Rome, and I’m working on wrapping up […]

Minimalist Packing Checklist: How to Pack in a Carry-On

Whether I’m traveling for two days or two weeks, my philosophy is this: carry-on or bust. Packing everything in a single carry-on means less to pack and organize, less decision fatigue getting dressed, and less to haul around on your trip or vacation. I’m leaving soon for a two-week trip to Europe and I managed […]

5 Simple Ways to Get Out of a Style Rut

Have you been wearing some version of the same thing for, oh, about the last two years? I hit a wall recently where I realized I had ended up in a bit of a pandemic fatigue fashion rut. Like so many people, I’ve pivoted my business to primarily working from home, so the only person […]

How to Host on Airbnb Like a Pro with Rockridge Casita

Recently, I decided to treat myself to a few nights at the Rockridge Casita – a charming short-term rental just five minutes away from my own home. I was craving a little solitude, and I also needed to make major progress on my next book (which is suddenly due very soon – eek!). Diana Pasquali, […]

Williams Sonoma x Minimalista

I’m not great at keeping secrets, so it’s a miracle that I was able to keep this to myself – I’m thrilled to officially announce that I’ll be partnering with Williams Sonoma to help celebrate their new curated line of home organizing products! As part of the collaboration, I’ll be sharing tips and organizing support […]

How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe for all Seasons

A “capsule wardrobe” is just a mini wardrobe consisting of versatile mix and match pieces that you love to wear. While many people insist you need to create a new capsule wardrobe for each season of the year, I am a firm believer in creating a single cohesive wardrobe that you can wear all year […]
