Have you heard about this whole capsule wardrobe thing? I know, so 2014. But I’ve never been too quick on the uptake. It seems to have had a resurgence on blogs recently and I’ve found myself seeking out endless posts and hoping, through osmosis, my closet (read: style) will be transformed. While I do know that I’m a bandwagon kinda gal, I mean as I type this I’m on day three of no sugar (it’s awful and I stare at my chocolate drawer throughout the day), the capsule wardrobe feels so fresh and seems to simplify life just a little bit.
I recently donated four garbage bags of clothes and still my closet is bursting at the seams. As just two examples of things I held onto after the purge, a bowling shirt and a pair of daisy dukes are still hanging on to their spots on the rack. Let me tell you, I haven’t picked up a bowling ball in five years and my thighs don’t need that kind of sun exposure.
While I haven’t yet over analyzed the idea enough to fully commit, the links below are my current reading inspiration.
Clockwise, starting at the top:
- I love the Today Show’s segments on style and DIY. This quick capsule wardrobe video is no exception.
- A covetable wardrobe, capsule or no capsule.
- For those that like a detailed step-by-step guide, this is your beacon of light.
Ugh, looking at these links shows me the life I want to be living. Of course, as I flipped through the images I thought “How am I going to have a capsule wardrobe without a burnt orange neck handkerchief?” And promptly bought one. I’m totally getting this minimalism thing.
