As Spring—both the season and my capsule wardrobe—wraps up I’ve started dipping into my summer capsule.
For some reason, switching my capsule wardrobe to a new season is taking a lot of time.
I’ll lose an hour at night online shopping for this perfect cap-sleeve, midi-dress that I made up in my head to check all the boxes from work appropriate to something I can wear to a wedding. It’s kind of exhausting. And in some moments feels like I’m not doing this right.
Maybe 3 months off of emotional shopping makes strategic shopping feel like a chore.
Or maybe I just don’t need it. I have dresses in my closet that are fine but just not perfect. A capsule wardrobe has me chasing perfection when I want to be chasing contentment.
I’m glad I’m realizing this now so I can re-ground myself in my purpose and focus on the areas of life that matter more than clothes.
Ps. I have bought a few things for my next capsule. It’s mostly work clothes because this process made me realize I want to dress nicer for work. But I’m just trying to not go overboard and rehaul everything.
Thanks for reading!
