Hello Friends!

Today, I’m excited to share with you all my capsule wardrobe. It’s still a work in progress, but I’m so proud of how far I’ve come! I decided to create a capsule wardrobe for efficiency and let’s be honest—the less clothing to wash, the better! There are no rules when creating a capsule wardrobe.  You make your own rules and it’s really a process of learning as you go along.

These are a few of the rules/guidelines I created for my wardrobe:

7 t-shirts

5 dresses

2 blouses

2 tank tops

I have 3 seasonal shirts that I’m hanging on to and am undecided on whether I’ll keep them or not.

1 denim over shirt

1 collared shirt

1 black cardigan

1 brown cardigan

Outer wear-

4 pairs of leggings

2 pairs of jeans

1 grey skirt

1 jean skirt

1 black skirt

1 white skirt

1 polka dot skirt

Shoes

1 brown boots (I need to make sure these fit.)

1 cowgirl boots

1 slip on shoes

1 sandals

1 flip flops

Items to buy:

1 hoodie

1 black boots

1 rain jacket

1 tennis shoes

1 flannel shirt

One thing I’ve found is that there are a few shirts that I’m not completely in love with. (I replaced 1 t-shirt with the one pictured below.) My main goal now is to finish getting the items I want as I go and also create fun new looks with my “new” wardrobe. 😉

Final Thoughts

This wardrobe idea worked so well for me that I decided to do it for Declan and John. I have just finished D’s and am still in the process of convincing John of how awesome it is. 😉 If anyone is interested in capsule wardrobes, I’m happy to talk with you. I’m still a newbie, but I love to learn and help educate others. I’ve found that jewelry, scarves, and headbands have made this even more fun. I’ve become a big accessory person to add a different personality to each outfit I wear. My advice for anyone starting out is to keep it fun and lots of trial and error. You will learn your own sense of style through this process and it helps you to not hang on to excess. Also don’t be afraid to let things go. If it’s a perfectly nice sweater, then someone else can find beauty and use in it. It doesn’t have to be yours. <3 If you spent the money on it and have worn it, you have already made it worth the expense. You will save money by wearing the things you own and love until they have worn out. Stay tuned for my next capsule wardrobe posts in the coming weeks.

    I’ve been cutting down on everything we own. I’ve done kitchen items and toys for the most part so far. Clothes are my next project, although I did already get rid of all our baby things. As the kids get older, I’m hoping to get even more into minimalism. 🙂 I think it’s just so freeing to not have a house filled and cluttered with stuff. It’s much easier to find what you need and you end up using what you do have more than if it were lost in with a bunch of other stuff.
