Today’s outfit post is accompanied by a brief personal story that speaks a bit about why I came out as “a minimalist” earlier this year. This shift has completely altered the way I think about fashion and my own personal style and has carried over in to many aspects of my life too.

Hello, and welcome to The Minimale Blogger.

I’m Rebecca Arendse; both author and content creator for theminimaleblogger.com; a 23-year-old UCT graduate and  full-time creative based in Cape Town, South Africa.

It’s been nearly 7 years since I started exploring the world of the internet and its many online social platforms. During that time, I’ve been lucky enough to come in to my own and find my unique voice in the world of blogging. As someone who subscribes to a minimalist way of living, a lifestyle in favor of quality over quantity, I have been utilizing my blog to document my interests in fashion, beauty, travel, food and interiors, all from a minimalist’s perspective.

Since starting this blog, it’s been a passion of mine to create a platform for dynamic and self-empowered individuals, and as our network grows, I hope to continue sharing my experiences with you all in the hopes of inspiring and encouraging you to feed your soul and thrive in your own endeavors. Staying true to oneself and being able to express that is a truly wonderful feeling, and I want to use this platform to affect that sense in my readers.

Until the next post.
