Have you ever heard of a capsule wardrobe? Well the idea has been plauging me for some time and yet did nothing. I continued every morning getting dressed and then an hour or two later changing my mind and getting dressed again. Sometimes this happened 3 or 4 times. Well...enough was enough! It was time to to embark on a new venture - the capsule wardrobe venture.
I emptied my closet of all the clothes, shoes, scarfs, skirts, dresses, and jeans. The pile on the bed was enormous!
I put back the items of clothing that I absolutely LOVED and left the "hem" things on the bed. Surprisingly, this step was easier than I thought it would be. I've gone through my closet many many times while everything was still in my closet and was able to take out the things that I really didn't like, but this way I was able to see exactly what I loved and the things I was only keeping because they were in great condition and I felt like I HAD to keep them.
I ended up with a GIGANTIC pile of clothes, shoes, scarves, etc on my floor, but my closet was oh so clean, neat, and fresh feeling! I was SO happy to have narrowed down my options. And now I can honestly say that getting dressed in the morning has become one of the easiest things ever. I put on one outfit in the morning and stay in that same outfit all day!
Have you done the capsule wardrobe challenge? How did it go for you? Or maybe this post has pushed you to give it a try??
