Can I get a AMEN?
I wasn't planning to do this blog post right now but I am doing it. I took these pics of my closet about 5 minutes ago.
seriously...... I could atleast make a effort to hang things up properly :/
Oh.... it gets worse :( I have so much stuff that I never wear and it just sits in my closet.
note to self... you cannot make shoe storage from foam board.
I am going to do a massive closet clean out this weekend. Everything that needs a repair, doesn't fit, I really don't like, I've never worn is out. Gone. Done. Removed.
Let's answer some questions about Capsule Wardrobes. I've seen blog posts and videos about them but I never really considered them until tonight. Tonight I decided I need simplicity in my life. Besides, if we decide to build our tiny home or purchase our RV I can't move all of my clothes into it. Downsizing is starting on Saturday.
What is a Capsule Wardrobe?
A Capsule Wardrobe is essentially a wardrobe of pieces (you decide on the number) that all or most are cohesive. I am not going to stick to a number but more of a does it fit and do I love it rule.
Everything that doesn't fit will be sold on depop or taken to Goodwill. If you are interested in my depop look for @mandyjeanchic. This goes for bags, jewelry, shoes, clothes and so on. Nothing in my closet will be safe.
Ideally I want my wardrobe to fit on one bar in my closet.
Also, most create a capsule wardrobe by season. I will be creating a Capsule Wardrobe for basics, office and for seasons. I have to start somewhat small or I will become overwhelmed and over think my decisions. My closet will be looked at in 3 categories. #1- basics #2- Office Chic #3- Seasonal
The end result will be a wardrobe I love and a revamped Chic closet.
I am going to take ya'll on this journey with me. I really want to simplify my life and I feel like I have way to much "stuff"
My first step is this weekend I will be doing closet clean out #1- Getting rid of everything that doesn't fit, is damaged or I truly just don't like.
I am also going to create 7 pinterest boards. One for each category and one for each season.
Next week I will update ya'll on how my clean out went, links to my pinterest boards and my next steps.
Have you created a capsule wardrobe? Do you want to take the challenge with me?? Let's simplify our lives together.
