Winter 2023 Capsule Wardrobe

 I am so excited to be back into a capsule wardrobe.  I have tried variations of this over the past couple years, but I have been largely unsuccessful due to an ever-changing body that I found difficult to dress.  Things have begun to settle out, so I am excited to figure out what works for me in this season of my life.  I am still breastfeeding, but my baby is now a toddler and requires far less feedings during the day.  This gives me the flexibility to choose clothes that aren't necessarily nursing friendly because I am not planning around breastfeeding anymore.

As a reminder, in this season of life I am a stay-at-home mom of 3 kids.  I live on the Canadian prairies where our temperatures get very cold.  I am basically dressing for warmth and comfort.  

My 2023 winter capsule wardrobe consists of 35 pieces and it includes my active wear and lounge wear.  I don't include my outerwear (winter jackets, toques/hats, mitts, boots, etc.) and I do not include my pajamas.




(3 of these shirts were taken from my husband's side of the closet.)


I am excited to get dressed from this capsule wardrobe.  I feel like it has so much potential for functional outfits that get me (mostly) out of my sweats.  I have included a lot of lounge wear, but I do wear my lounge wear to clean my house.  I had the unfortunate mishap of bleaching (and destroying) one of my favourite sweaters a couple weeks ago, so I have learned my lesson.  Old t-shirts are now my go-to for when I am cleaning.  Happy Wednesday, friends!


  1. Ooh, I like that Sedona shirt that may or may not be your husband's! Reminds me of my trip there. :) I feel like I am currently wearing a capsule wardrobe because I just wear the same few things all the time *face palm*... which may be a sign I need to clean out my closet, ha.

    1. I absolutely took that Sedona shirt from my husband's side of the closet! Ha ha ha! He gave it to me to wear during my last pregnancy and it never made it back to his side of the closet. My parents brought the shirt back from a trip they made to Sedona. It sounds so beautiful.

      I think you are 100% normal. Most of us wear the same few things over and over, which is why capsule wardrobes can be so great.
