Hello Hello :)
The past few months I've been mentioning here and there about how I've been experimenting with a capsule wardrobe, and promising a more detailed post on the topic. There are so many awesome blogs and videos that all praise the numerous benefits that having a more minimal and well edited wardrobe brings, and I've well and truly fallen in love with the concept.
Dressing with fewer items over the last couple of months has not only helped me to declutter and simplify, it's also made me be a little more creative with my outfit choices and I've really enjoyed playing around with my style to find what really works for me. It's so easy getting dressed when your wardrobe is full of pieces you love and I'll definitely be continuing this way - I'm hooked!
I thought I'd share a video showing the pieces I've included in my Spring Capsule. You'll notice it's full of bright colours and patterns, but also incorporates more neutral pieces that help to tie everything together. It's been working great for me so far!
These are generally the clothes I wear on the weekend - as you can see, the pieces are all pretty casual - because when it comes to work I generally just stick to my standard "uniform" of black pants and a simple top. Actually, now that I think about it - I've been dressing with a "Work Capsule Wardrobe" for the past few years without even realising it!
It's really not about the numbers, but just to give you a guideline in case you're interested in giving it a go yourself, I broke it down like this:
1 pair of overalls
6 Bottoms (4 pairs of jeans and 2 pairs of shorts)
8 Outerwear Pieces (Cardigans/jackets)
This adds up to 33 items. I obviously haven't included shoes/accessories/jewellery and have also been pretty lenient with myself, in that if I wanted to wear something not included in my capsule - then I'd just wear it! The point is to simplify, not add too many restrictions or more stress to your life!
If you're interested in finding out more about this whole "capsule wardrobe thing", then I highly recommend checking out Unfancy and Project 333. They're two of my favourite blogs and there's tonnes of inspiration as well as way more information, explanations and tips!
I hope you enjoy the video and that it gives you a little inspiration, particularly if you're a lover of colour, because I haven't seen a whole lot of colourful capsule wardrobes videos yet! Let me know what you think and if you give it a go!
Lots of Love
