Fall Capsule Wardrobe Recap

I feel like I blinked and Fall was gone.  We had a beautiful fall this year.  I was quite happy with most of my wardrobe, with a few exceptions.  Here is what I loved and what I disliked about my Fall Capsule Wardrobe.

Fall Capsule Wardrobe Loves:

This dress is so comfortable and looks great, too!  I wore it a TON.

This black and white striped top got a lot of wear.  I also wore the vest a lot.

This leopard top can be dressed up and dressed down.  It is great!

I LIVED in this light chambray top.  It was my thrift store find.  I didn't like chambray when it first came out, but I am converted.   It is awesome.

This outfit was also in heavy rotation.  The sweater is pretty and allows me to wear my leggings.  I could live in leggings.  They are so comfy!

This t-shirt is a great weight and fits me really well.  I wear it often.

Fall Capsule Wardrobe Dislikes:

This oatmeal cape is super itchy and I have sensitive skin.  Unfortunately, I think it will go in the donation bin.  It is super warm so that was a plus.

This plum sweater.  I love the colour and I wore it to death last year, yet I rarely wore it this year.  I am not sure why, but I am not impressed with it anymore.  Another addition to the donation bin.

This red sweater.  I don't know why but it just didn't fit quite right.  I was never sure exactly why, but I never really loved wearing it.

I will be getting rid of my leopard flats, as well.  I really wish that they would have worked, but they were so uncomfortable.  They tore my feet up the first time I wore them.  It took weeks for them to heal.  I will be on the hunt for a more comfortable pair of leopard shoes.

That concludes my year of capsule wardrobes!  It was a fun experience.  I really recommend trying them.  The HUGE benefit to capsule wardrobes is that you learn to shop less and you really get a good sense of your sense of style.  I am going to stop doing capsule wardrobes, for now.  The KonMari method that I plan to try has set rules on how to purge everything, including clothes.  I want to be open to this new method of minimalism, without my capsule wardrobes clouding my judgement.


  1. Isn't is so weird how you'll wear something a ton one year and then ignore it the next? That always happens to me! Great job with your capsules! I love all of your outfits! I finally found a chambray shirt that I like and fits me well--I'm very excited about it! :)

    1. It is a weird! Thank you. Capsule wardrobes were a bit of a challenge, but I really enjoyed doing them! I am glad you found a chambray shirt you love. They are so super comfortable!

  2. I love these outfits! All of your blanket scarves are so cute! That first outfit is adorable!


    1. Thank you so much, Sarah! It is one of my favourites, as well!

  3. I love that first dress! Simple and yet fun.


    1. Thank you so much, Nina! It is definitely a favourite!
