S I M P L I F Y!

The older I get the more exponentially in favor I grow in simplifying and un-fuss-afing my life, so that I allow greater room to enjoy the things I really love.  Wanting to keep things simple these days, the Unfancy Capsule Wardrobe is right up my alley!  I love the idea of paring down my wardrobe to the best of the best and ditching the rest of the mess {ok, it’s not a mess, just a lot of un-nessesary options that clutter my closet, and maybe more importantly, my head!}

Too many options zap our time and our attention.

Do you ever stand in front of your closet with the plethora of options before you and NOTHING TO WEAR?!  I think that ‘nothing to wear’ is in part due to the excessive options we allow ourselves. It plays with our minds and convinces us that we need more options, when in reality the perfect outfit is hanging right before your very eyes — and you probably already wore it earlier this week.  Oh yeah!, I’m not oppose to the outfit repeat! In fact, I’m usually drawn to the same six or so outfits during the season.  Another reason this Unfancy Capsule Wardrobe is perfect!

Check out Capsule wardrobe “How To” here!

When you create a capsule wardrobe, selecting your favorite 37 items, you will be more inclined to pick pieces that really highlight your style.  Each piece will have a more specific purpose in your wardrobe fashion for that season. When I have pared down my options in the past, to my true favorites, I feel more styled and pulled together each day.  I’m not cluttered with mix match options thrown together because they are available.  Instead I stick with my absolute favorites and the items that showcase ME!  It’s a win win in my book!

The Capsule Wardrobe rules are simple — I’ve highlighted them here:

  1. Pick your top 37 clothing items and ditch the rest. The 37 items can be broken down however you see fit but Caroline of Unfancy’s idea is as follows: 9 pairs of shoes, 9 bottoms, 15 tops, 2 dresses, 2 jackets/coats.
  2. Once your seasonal capsule wardrobe is set — No shopping!  Not only is this capsule wardrobe helping your closet — it  just might save you some spontaneous shopping funds as well!
  3. Wear only these 37 items for the 3 month season.
  4. During the last couple weeks of the season — plan for the next season — preparing your outfits and closet for the transition.

So, what do you think?, are you up for the challenge?  Do you like this idea? or does it feel too constricting?
