What is a capsule wardrobe
The idea of a capsule wardrobe is to minimize your closet to 30-40 items for the season including your shoes and outerwear. However, Pajamas, accessories, fitness apparel and special occasion outfits are not included in the capsule wardrobe.
Benefits of having a capsule wardrobe:
- More room in your closet
- Love everything in your closet
- Easy dress up in the morning
- Love how you’re dressed
- Become more confident
- Spend less, you shop only once a season with a specific budget in mind
How to Create your own
- Take everything out of your closet
- Only put back things that you absolutely love and know you will wear this season
- Put the clothes you love and will wear another season in a box
- Bring everything you will not wear to a consignment store and get some cash!
- Create a Pinterest board for inspiration (PS: you can follow me on Pinterest here)
- Create a list of 30-40 items you already have and want for the season:
- Make a shopping budget
- Shop online for better deals and get cash back with Ebates
Why I decided to do a Capsule Wardrobe for this summer
This year I am finally going back to France to visit my friends and family. I’ll be there for almost 3 weeks. So I thought that creating a capsule wardrobe will make it easier to pack for the holidays.
Also, in the morning I am always running late because I love working on Hello Peaceful Mind so much that it’s hard to stop and get ready to go to work. So I usually grab random clothes and hate the way I am dressed.
Doing a capsule wardrobe helped me to get ready fast in the morning and feel good during the day. I am more confident and happier!
What you need to create your capsule wardrobe
- An account on Polyvore to help you visualize what you have and what to keep
