So I'm having a clear out. For a while now, I've been thinking of streamlining my wardrobe: wearing only black, white, grey and navy a la Scandi style icons. But can someone obsessed with fashion do it?
I probably won't stick to it religiously, as I aways get far too excited by new trends but I'm going to give it a go and clear out pieces from my wardrobe I don't wear. Far too often, my 'go-to' wardrobe items are a classic shirt, a good pair of jeans and a crombie coat - so I'm stocking up on these.

I'm keeping my frivolous shoes, though!
So for our first outing of the year, a new year's walk along the Thames, I put this look to the test.
First off, the trainers owned by every minimalist out there, the Adidas Stan Smith - a chic Christmas present (from myself) - I love them. I think about this time last year, I made a resolution to wear less trainers - scrap that.
