This year has been a bit strange. I haven't perused the malls or looked online to see what is in style. I haven't made a shopping list and I haven't daydreamed about the new Spring clothes that I want to add to my wardrobe. I embarked on a No-Spend Year at the beginning of 2017, so there will be no shopping this season.
I have a basket that I keep my off-season clothes in. I keep this basket in my closet so that warmer clothes are close at hand. (We have had snow in May. Ugh.) I packed away all of my winter sweaters, blanket scarves and my leather leggings. I also pulled out my lighter scarves, tops, pink jeans and a floral dress for Easter. I am excited to wear dresses, skirts and cropped pants.
I am eager to learn how to work within my wardrobe. I am looking forward to learning how to be content with what I have. I am discovering how to take proper care of myself so that shopping isn't an emotional crutch. This is an important skill to have.
I am actually surprised that I don't feel the compulsion to shop. I am shocked that I am not lamenting my inability to add a few new items to my closet. It feels good to be content.
Here are a few items that I am looking forward to wearing again this season. I have taken these photos out of my previous Capsules, so you may recognize them.
