Wishlist: Spring Capsule Wardrobe
So, you may or may not know that I completely went through my closet and totally gutted it– by gutting it I mean getting rid of at least 3/4ths of all my clothes and accessories! That was one of the most liberating activities I’ve practiced in a long time! You may be asking, “why the heck did Ashlee get rid of 3/4ths of her closet?” Well, let me tell you!
I’ve decided that I keep buying things that are on sale but I’m not necessarily in love with.
A. Talk about not sustainable – to say the least.
B. My wallet was taking a huge beating – like bad.
C. I kept looking in my closet and saying to myself, “I have nothing to wear”. Which didn’t make any sense because I had a closet full of clothes.
What I was actually saying was that I didn’t like anything in my closet because it didn’t make me feel good in it. So, I decided to pick up the minimalist wardrobe which you can find in further detail over here at Unfancy. She’s freaking amazing at the capsule wardrobe and I love her dedication to picking one capsule for 4 seasons out of the year.
After going through my entire wardrobe and pairing it down to 32 pieces of clothing, 5 accessories, and a handful of shoes – I feel like I’ve gained at least 20 minutes back every morning because I’m not digging through my closet to try and match items together. The items that I have in my closet are all items that I know work with at least another two items in my closet. SO, that means I have a minimum of 40 different outfits with only 32 different pieces of clothing. Talk about options!
While I was going through my closet, I realized that there are a few pieces that I’m missing to complete my outfit. In the next month or so I’m hoping to get these items to complete my spring capsule.
After purchasing a couple of these items my spring capsule will be complete. I’m freaking stoked you guys! I seriously cannot wait until I save up enough to purchase these items.
What are some of your favorites that you're currently dying for? I’m always in the mood for some online shopping!
