Every spring I purge my home of clutter and excess, and every spring I vow to live a simpler life with fewer, better things. That also happens to be the motto of one of my all time favorite brands.
When I first read it on Cuyana’s website, it really stuck with me, but come fall, I always go back to my old habits and never can seem to keep my closet and home as streamlined as I would like.
Last year I tried out the KonMari method and made the biggest shift yet towards this goal. The idea of getting rid of anything that “doesn’t spark joy” is constantly in my mind. And when I really stick to that, both my house and my life feel less cluttered. It’s a pretty magical concept… when I actually stick to it.
This spring, Cuyana sent me their new cross body bag to test out, and the beauty in it’s simplicity makes me all kinds of happy. I’d much prefer to have a few really beautiful, well-made pieces like this in my closet as opposed to a bunch of trendy things that don’t last more than a season. The challenge is that with my job as a blogger, I’m always trying to share new discoveries, so it’s definitely a fine line to balance.

What’s your relationship to clutter? Do you let it build up and then purge or are you more of a daily de-cluterrer?
To be clear, I’m not being paid for this post, I just love the brand maybe more than any other fashion brand, and love sharing their products because I really believe in the quality and design!
