After hearing about the Capsule Wardrobe concept for months and months, I decided to bite the bullet and do it. What is Capsule Wardrobe? This post is a great explanation (although a bit long-winded), but it boils down to this: You select 37 items (including shoes) per season, clear the rest of your closet out (either store or donate), and rotate the 37 items to mix and match outfits. The reasoning behind Capsule Wardrobe is that, since your choices are limited to what you truly love and actually want to wear, getting dressed is less stressful AND you end up more stylish.
My closet looked like this prior to Capsule Wardrobe… AHHHH!
So I pulled everything out and dumped it on the floor…
Some things were easy to eliminate from my Capsule Wardrobe. No need for sweaters or heavy jackets right now. The seasons really shift at the end of October here, so I’ll probably need to revamp my Capsule Wardrobe in a month and a half (not the typical 3 months).
I put everything that didn’t make the cut into garbage bags… I plan to sort and donate when this Capsule Wardrobe is up.
It was actually pretty easy to whittle my closet down to 37 items! I tend to wear the same favorites over and over again and everything else, I just push past and never put on. I love how airy and open my closet looks now. Much more functional!
Here’s what made the cut…
2 sandals, my grey chunks, a pair of boots, a pair of flats, and wedges
A navy blazer and a faux leather jacket
Black jeans, dark wash jeans, gray jeans, black moto skinny jeans, fleece leggings, dress pants, and 2 shorts
12 tops, including the Raquel Resort Blouse and Rosie Fit N Flare Tunic, both from White Plum
I’m actually a little under 37 items because I think I may need to add a piece in as I go through the process.
So fun, right? I absolutely love it. It’s so much easier to get dressed now!
