About Me

Hi there!  My name is Karin and I’m wife to David, mother to Kit, Ella, and Rosie and dog mommy to Oscar.  I’m passionate about being a mother, philosophical discussions, literature, the outdoors, and finding ways to simplify our home.

I started doing Capsule Wardrobes in the summer of 2015 and to document my journey, I started Truncation.

Truncation is a term used to describe the process of getting rid of all of the unnecessary excess until you’re left with what really matters.

And that’s what I’m hoping to do here with my Capsule Wardrobe journey. I’m hoping to figure out how to strip away everything that’s prohibiting me from finding contentment with, not only what I already have, but also with the life I’ve been given.

I hope you’ll join me!

On Truncation you’ll find daily outfit posts and my thoughts on living with less.

To see my outfits in “real life action, make sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook.


Until next time,

      He’s busy causing mischief and couldn’t be bothered for a picture. 🙂
