I have began working on my Spring 2015 Capsule Wardrobe. I got the idea of doing a Capsule Wardrobe on Caroline's blog Un-Fancy. I was reading that she plans to do just a warm weather capsule and a cold weather capsule. I think this would be an awesome idea. I will do a year of seasonal wardrobes, because it helps me focus my efforts more efficiently. At this point, I would find planning 6 months of wardrobe to be overwhelming.
First things first. I enjoyed having a Capsule Wardrobe. I learned a few things, as well:
#1) I NEED MORE COLOUR: I tried to keep my Winter Capsule rather neutral because I thought it would be easier to make outfits. I found this to be drab. I love colour and I should have included a lot more colour in both my clothes and my accessories.
#2) I NEED MORE COMFORT: I also put in a lot of sweaters, but no sweatshirts. I should have included a sweatshirt or two to help make some easy, comfortable outfits.
#3) SOME THINGS JUST DON'T LOOK GOOD ON ME: I learned that I need to pay much closer attention to the shape of the clothes that I buy. I had some oversize sweaters that did nothing to flatter my figure. I could belt them (and I did belt them a few times), but as it turns out, I hate wearing belts! Once in a while was okay, but more often then not, I just took the belt off right away. Some of my items didn't work for me. I thought that they would be great and they were not. I have several items in the donation pile. This wardrobe has been a wonderful experience in planning and in knowing what shapes of clothes work for my body type.
When planning my Spring Capsule wardrobe, I will try to keep the things I learned in mind. I love navy, white, coral and pink in the Spring. I want to keep a clean, classic look with comfort and colour. I will keep in mind that Miss. E's first birthday falls in the Spring and I will want something cute to wear for her birthday party!
I have been pinning ideas like crazy and "window" shopping on the internet. I will start buying items soon and putting the wardrobe together. I am so excited! I know that I will have more items in this wardrobe, because I will have the ability to wear more types of clothes because of the warmer weather. That being said, I have to have some warm clothes. I live in Canada and it has been know to snow in May! (Not often, but it does happen!)
