My Accidental Capsule Wardrobe

Hello There!

Capsule wardrobes; have you heard of these? You round up those pieces in your wardrobe that you're holding on to for no good reason, and then you show them the door. With those pieces gone, you build up a dreamy, minimalist wardrobe for yourself. It's essentially like making yourself a very chic uniform. 

Those I have nothing to wear moments, cease to exist when your closet is carefully selected, and matches with damn-near everything else that you own. Each individual piece is one that you love to wear, feels appreciated, and you look amazing in!

On mine and the misters first weekend in a while far too long with a light to-do, we savored a hearty brunch at home, and dipped out for some intoxicatingly crisp, winter air.

I knew that I wanted to look presentable, but didn't want to spend a half an hour in my bra, staring blankly at my closet. See the dilemma? Whilst daydreaming of what outfit to wear over my breakfast spread, I found myself instinctively knowing what to reach for. 
Stripes, of course!

Side note; how stinkin' adorable is this phone case? Yellow, bananas, and a hint of quirkiness!

The rule being broken in my case, was that my capsule wardrobe would not be rotating with the seasons. In my defense, I live in Wisconsin. We've had 80 degree days in March, and snow in May. A bikini and a parka will always be on hand for me!

With a fresh outlook on the not-so-new clothes in my closet, I wake up feeling inspired, and confident to toss an outfit together. In fact, I'll take that small window between hitting the snooze button to assemble an outfit in my head. Making it ultra easy, and a real time saver, to get dressed and be on my way!

Well, what do you think? Will you be decluttering and building yourself a capsule wardrobe anytime soon, or have you already, accidentally, gotten yourself one?
