Spring Is Finally Upon Us
Lately, I’ve been mulling over additions to my spring wardrobe and decided I was going to put together an actual capsule wardrobe for the first time. A capsule wardrobe is a collection of essential coordinating pieces that can be mixed and matched to create several outfits.
When I tried to think back to when I first heard the term “capsule wardrobe” I came up empty however I’ve operated on this philosophy out of necessity for many years. I used to crack up when people would compliment my ‘nice’ outfits because it seemed like they thought I had a massive wardrobe when in fact I only had a few key pieces that I wore interchangeably.
Back then thrift stores were easy on the budget and I could almost always score brand new items with the original tags still attached. My color palette was mainly black, gray, navy, and tan. In the summer I’d switch to lighter colors but still maintained the minimalist approach to clothing.
These days I’ve accumulated more clothes than I need but I justify it because I do a semi-annual wardrobe inventory. This is where go through my all of my clothing and donate things I no longer use.
So at any rate, I previously mentioned I’ve been looking for a certain color of shoes and a specific handbag for some time. I got to thinking why not just pull together a number of pieces to get through spring. Just thinking about it makes me giddy.
Putting Together My Spring Wardrobe Capsule
So far for my capsule I know I want blue heels, nude lace-up heeled sandals, nude handbag, 2 pairs of jeans, 1 pair khakis, 1 pair of white pants, white blazer, 1 jumpsuit, 1 floral fit and flare dress. I may add a skirt or two depending on what I already have. Hopefully, by early next week, I’ll have this completely nailed down so I can take pictures, catalog, and then share my outfit ideas with you.
Since I’m so excited about doing my spring capsule wardrobe if all works out well I may consider doing one for the summer. I’m looking to add extra cosmetics to my makeup repertoire as well.
Spring is the season for renewal after all so why not go whole hog?
Have a great weekend!
