This V neck sleeveless pink silk tank top is from Lilysilk. The colour is called “quicksand pink” and I got it in size XS (see FAQ for my measurements for reference).

This particular top from Lilysilk has a slightly larger fit and I did a massive no-no which is to shrink it in the dryer.

Confession: I’m reckless with my clothing. I chuck most things in the dryer and they mostly survive. I like to live dangerously.

I have certainly ruined pieces this way so please DO NOT follow my footsteps.

It’s not that I don’t value my possessions, but I used to care so much that I felt like my possessions owned me.

Then I discovered Marie Kondo and her philosophy of letting go. She explains this concept beautifully and helped me take my first step towards minimalism.

These days I don’t feel so attached to my possessions anymore. I feel okay letting go of clothing that no longer serves me.

I used to worry that with a minimalistic wardrobe, I would grow bored of wearing the same colours day after day.

But then I realised that I just had to learn what colours work for me and find other colours that match those colours.

I have always loved pink and decided to build a wardrobe on soft muted pinks and complementary earthy tones.

When all the colours in your wardrobe get along, it’s so darn easy to put together outfits.

I think it’s even become a bit of an addiction – hence the birth of this blog!

As I narrowed down my wardrobe to consist of only items that go with each other, I looked forward to getting dressed even more.

This V neck sleeveless pink silk tank top is a nice summary of my current wardrobe situation.

  • Mostly composed of soft earthy tones, muted colours, nudes and neutral shades
  • Made of natural and classic types of fabrics
  • Versatile and can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion
  • Feels great on the body, has a relaxed fit yet still drapes the body in a feminine way
  • Can be mixed and matched to create just the right amount of skin show

I hope you’ve been inspired to minimise your wardrobe. I’d love to know how your wardrobe has transformed over the years.

  1. Isn’t it amazing at how one piece can be many ways? I love how versatile your pink tank is. Each look is so different than the last and not to mention so beautiful. I try to minimize my closet by not buying too many clothes but being a blogger it’s so easy to get influenced. A double edged sword! So, instead I do my best to rewear pieces I have and only buy items that are missing from my wardrobe.
