Why I Capsule Wardrobe | Winter 2016 Wrap-up

Why Capsule?

After having a baby and wearing mostly second-hand maternity clothes for the pregnancy I was anxious to get back into items that felt like me.

What I wasn't prepared for was the change in who I felt I was as a woman.  I looked at my closet and realized that these styles, colours and prints were someone else.

I felt different.  Very very different.

But the budget was small and the ability for me to just go out and change my whole wardrobe  was not an option.

So what did I do?

Seasonal Capsule Wardrobes.

Capsule Wardrobing is a buzz term on the internet and there are varying degrees on what it can mean and how to do it. For me, I decided it was this.

1) Assess Previous & Current Season items.

Winter, Spring, Summer & Autumn I would assess my clothes and make sure that every item I stored in a drawer or closet would not only be worn that season, but be loved and adored by me.

2) Identify three items that needed to be replaced, or added to the wardrobe.  

This usually includes something practical, something I have been drooling over and  a lipstick colour for funzies.

3) Quality over quantity.  

Having less means less choices to make every day and having really good quality clothing also means that I will get good wear and enjoyment out of each and every item.
