I'm taking the plunge and I'm inviting you to join me.
If you aren't familiar with the concept of a capsule wardrobe, essentially, it is a simplified wardrobe of versatile pieces that you love wearing. In other words, for each season, you pick a certain number of items and wear only those. For the Summer season, I will be picking 37 items (including tops, bottoms, dresses, outerwear, and shoes) and donating, or packing away the rest.
I have a closet and a dresser full of clothes that don't often get worn. I gravitate towards a handful of clothes that are my favorites. I love clothes but I hate my tendency to try on 85 different outfits only to go back to those favorite pieces that make me feel awesome. In an effort to practice what I preach when it comes to an organized and decluttered life style, I am committing to a capsule wardrobe plan for my summer.
Why am I doing this?
1. I want to buy less but buy better quality.
2. I want my mornings to be more simplified
3. I'm interested to see whether I get bored wearing the same items in various combinations or whether it's freeing to have less to choose from.
4.My closet space is limited and not designed well. I want to be able to see clearly what I have and currently I have too many clothes for my space.
So, over the course of the next week I"ll be narrowing down my wardrobe and will report back in 2 weeks to let you know what items I chose for my Summer Capsule and how it's all going.
