Capsule Wardrobe Obsessed
Friday January 18, 2013
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.
