Iâ€™m really excited about this capsule wardrobe. This is my third one (read about the first and second here) and it feels like Iâ€™m getting better at it each time. Iâ€™m still loving the capsule wardrobe concept – a small collection of carefully chosen clothes that you love. For me, it boils down to the fact that I always have something to wear – so I never have those mornings where I hate all my clothes. Itâ€™s great
My process this time around was to start with the capsule wardrobe planner from Unfancy and think about what I actually spend my time doing and the kind of clothes that I need for my lifestyle. I also browsed through my spring/summer Pinterest board for some inspiration. Iâ€™ll be spending most of the summer either at the park with the kiddos, working from home, or on the occasional evening out with friends, so I need casual clothes that will work for heatwaves as well as cooler weather.
So here it is, my summer capsule! Itâ€™s a bit bigger than my other capsules (so even though 28 items arenâ€™t actually a lot, this now feels like so much choice). Weâ€™ll see how that goes – I can already see that some items might get forgotten about, so Iâ€™m going to make a conscious effort to try and wear everything to prevent boredom setting in. In fact, Iâ€™m even considering just printing the image below and taping it to my wardrobe so I that donâ€™t forget about anything…
