Digging Into Summer

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!

    Dear Kimberly.

    I really like these pictures. Also, your thoughts of using a capsule wardrobe to find your style really resonates with me. I have not being able to figure out why I was not content with my attempts to make a capsule wardrobe. After seeing the video with you and your sister where you talk about your experience with a capsule wardrobe, and reading your blog, I realised that it is because I have no clue what my style is, so my tiny wardrobe is all over the place. Now that I have acknowledged that, I can start figuring out which outfits make me feel confident, and which does not (and why), so that I can start defining my style. So thank you 🙂
