I’m obsessed with the concept of capsule wardrobes. Lately I’ve been thinking about the various capsule wardrobe possibilities within my own closet. After having made the Maison de Reefur one I figured looking at my own clothes might be more productive. In a sense the “what I’m wearing” posts are also like this but less “themed.” I did two for late winter, early spring.
Monochromatic Late Winter
Bottoms – Madewell tuxedo pencil skirt, Old Navy black skinny jeans.
Dress – Madewell Artdot dress.
Tops – b&w striped knit, Zara white lace top, Uniqlo black dot oxford, Madewell white true love oxford, Cher black cashmere cardigan.
Coats – F21 wool coat, H&M tuxedo blazer.
Shoes – black flats, silver pig flats.
Bags – red fold-over tote, Ne-net eco bag
Scarf – Madewell Tokyo scarf
Inspired by Madewell’s recent monochromatic looks I figured this would be an easy one to accomplish since I own a lot of black. I sorta want to switch to this right now :) But I’d miss my denim shirt and knit dress, ha!
Pastel Early Spring
Bottoms – Madewell denim jeans & shorts, Kastane beige skirt, Francesca mint confetti skirt.
Tops – Madewell silk blush blouse, Cher pink sweater, Madewell pinstripe dot oxford, Madewell true love oxford, baby blue striped top, cream knit sweater, Madewell light grey long cardigan.
Coats – Zara mint blazer.
Shoes – beige oxford wingtips, white open-toe flats, colorblock canvas flats, minnetonka moccasins.
Bags – alexa-inspired satchel, Shinzi Katoh crossbody bag, Baggu mint striped eco-bag.
Scarf – Dayan Wachifield light pink scarf.
I was surprised how much color my spring closet actually has. I also feel lucky to have all 4 seasons where I live so I can enjoy so many different options & wardrobe moods. Once spring hits I suddenly begin to reject black. I never think I will, and yet every year it happens. I’m not sure if I would ever actually go with an all pastel closet, but, never say “never!”
Looking at these makes me excited to wear the clothing I already own. It reminds me of the options I have at my disposal rather than “going on the hunt” for new spring items. This year I’ve really been able to enjoy wearing some past favorites.
