Spring 2015 Capsule Wardrobe Planning

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!)
