I’m doing a capsule wardrobe reshuffle. Yes, I made this up, but hear me out.
When I put together my spring capsule I was after versatility so I chose mostly basics that I felt comfortable in. It turns out a closet full of comfortable basics doesn’t translate to confidence in your style or wardrobe. So with one month left, I’m opting for a reshuffle.
Say hello to the new additions:
And adios to what’s leaving:
Also, why did I add two dresses that (a) I don’t like wearing and (b) aren’t even spring colors?! What was I thinking? I don’t feel comfortable in either of them — one is too short with sleeves which should never be a combo because if you raise your arm the whole thing moves up. And the other dress is too plain and formal. So, rather than forcing it, I’ve accepted that if I don’t feel totally comfortable, confident, or myself in something then I’m tossing it aside.
I’m so glad I started this project because I wouldn’t have learned these things without forcing myself to take a closer look at my closet through a capsule wardrobe. It’s only been two months and I already feel like I understand my style better and see the gaps I need to fill for my next capsule.
Out with the old, in with the favorites. Nothing more, nothing less.
