My last capsule wardrobe faded into thin air, if you hadn’t noticed. Moving from below zero temperatures to year round spring and summer will do that to a capsule. But I never lost faith that I would come back to it, and here we are.
I started a capsule wardrobe during the fall in Indiana to save money as Christmas came. But it’s become a lot more than that for me. I’m not a minimalist, and I don’t necessarily have a wish to be more minimalist. I do wish to have more long lasting pieces – quality over quantity – but I think some things can be both. My main concerns are materialism and wastefulness. I was those things in a lot of ways before ,including my wardrobe.
My plan is to have 2 capsules a year during our time in Florida. One for easy breezy outfits during warm weather and one that can have a little layering. I’ll revisit that in July. But I’m not concerned about repeating outfits so I have faith it will work, and ,for that reason, I will keep it at 37 pieces for this round. So far I’ve got 32 . . . and I’m leaving a few pieces open until I really learn my grab and go pieces for my first floridian capsule wardrobe.
Guess what!?! All of them are from Old Navy. I’m nothing if not predictable. The black jeans I actually have in grey, but they aren’t available in grey anymore. Sadness. I left a spot open for a pair of jean shorts just in case.
The reason I left out the shorts for now is because I’m wearing lots of skirts lately. I also think they’ll do better in the capsule that needs thicker materials and layering.
Just a couple pieces to layer on those days where it’s rainy and cold in the afternoon.
For the tops, I wanted lots of short sleeves and tank tops with a few dressier shirts in easy, breezy fabrics. There’s also a spot open for my favorite sweatshirt that I forgot to take a picture of, oopsy!
I’ve never been a big shoe girl. I know. FOR SHAME! But I just haven’t been so this is the easy part. neutrals with just a couple fun pairs.
Are you doing a new capsule? You know I love to chat capsules so share, share, share!
