Columbine Smille enjoying spring in Paris

State of mind: Columbine Smille

Twice monthly, Filippa K Circle invites inspiring people to share their current mindsets. This week, stylist, co-founder of Space Matters and fashion director of STYLEBY Columbine Smille shares her thoughts.

My state of mind: Longing for spring.

I feel balanced when: Being by the sea.

I’m currently reading/watching: Reading I’m The First Bad Man by Miranda July and watching Blue Planet II.

I can’t live without this organic/natural beauty product: The Abricot Kernel Oil from Buly 1803 and RMS Master Mixer.

This is how I want my wardrobe to be composed: I want it to consist of go to pieces, the type of garments I know I wear a lot and less of pieces for only one occasion. Also, I really think quality is important, wearing materials that are long lasting and that feel good on the body. It’s a process but I’m getting there!

I feel at ease when wearing: A soft, oversized knit.

I care for my clothes by: Not washing them too much, and if they can air dry for a couple of hours I’d rather do that.

This is my best consumption tip: Before buying something, make sure you have pieces in your wardrobe to wear it with. Also think in CPW (cost by wear). If you are like me, and can wear the same knit or jacket over and over again, it might be worth investing in one of those pieces instead of several.

A progressive mind that I admire: Clarisse Demory.
