First I’d like to say a big thank you to you all for the birthday congratulations in response to my last post. And yes, there was plenty of cake and enough champagne, and even a fancy birthday lunch in a nice restaurant the following day. Now that restaurants are open again (with proper social distancing measures), Professor M didn’t want to wait a moment longer to get a break from home-cooked (or take-away) meals. I can’t blame him: we both prefer eating to cooking, that’s for sure…
But let’s get to todays’ theme: minimalist style
You probably know by now that I like to call myself a minimalist, in the sense that I believe that ‘less is more‘ and ‘buy less but buy better‘ are much better mantras than ‘shop till you drop‘. In other words, I’m happy to splurge on something I know I will use and cherish for a long time.
But I also like the aesthetic side of minimalist style: bared-down functionality and clean lines. And when I see something that embodies minimalist style (which is not to be confused with minimalism as a lifestyle), I buy it. And in this case, that something was this bag:
Yes, Bag Lady strikes again… I wonder if there’s a support group for Bag Addicts Anonymous? Never mind…
Anyway… I thought (of course) that this bag would look just perfect with something very simple and casual. Like a navy and white striped top and a pair of navy linen trousers. How fortunate that I just happen to have something like that in my closet…
And this, my friend, is how a self-declared minimalist like me can justify buying yet another bag: it goes with 90% of the clothes I already have in my wardrobe. And, more importantly, it adds a little bit of sophistication to those rather plain and boring clothes that I wear most of the time…

Are you a fan of minimalist style?
