Wardrobe Must Have: Moto Jackets

If it were realistic, I would buy a different moto jacket for every day of the week. A moto jacket adds instant style to any outfit and is an absolute no-brainer as an item or two in my wardrobe.

It's also a huge confidence booster. 

People just instantly assume you're stylish and powerful when you're wearing one of these things. And it's completely fine to fake it until you feel it.

How To Plan For Your Capsule Wardrobe

I don't know about you, but in the past when I would go shopping, I would go for fun. I would go without a plan. And most often I would go shopping to fill some void. Not that I would think to myself:

Hey, I'm feeling some sort of void. I should go to the mall to find happiness.

But hindsight is 20/20, my friends. I started to realize that when I would go to the mall with my friend, it was usually because I was feeling down. Which was usually caused by trying to get dressed for some event or outing.

How To Define Your Capsule Wardrobe

 

Prepping for a capsule wardrobe has proven to be tough work thus far, but we're resilient people; We can handle anything. Right?

Something To Look Forward To

Everyone who works an office job or attends school seems to dread Mondays. Not everyone, but most of us mere mortals. I have mixed opinions on the matter, because on one hand, I find myself feeling anxiety on Sunday night because... well... I love the weekend! And who doesn't?

So, where do these mixed feelings come from, you wonder? Seems like I've made up my mind, huh?

How To Find Your Style For Your Capsule Wardrobe

In a previous post, I showed my own personal inspiration for my first capsule wardrobe, but I didn't give you many details on how to gather said inspiration. I'd like to expand upon that.

I've already discussed in this post how you should find your why and purge your closet before working on your capsule wardrobe. My next piece of advice is to get inspired!

Once your closet has been edited down to the items you love, it's time to focus in on purchasing what you need to complete your capsule wardrobe. But, wait. First you need to figure out what your style is.

How do I do that?

I love the beginning of a new year because who doesn't like the feel of a fresh start?

 And with a new year comes new resolutions. I know we're already a week into it, so most of you likely already have your resolutions set in place. But have you ever considered dropping your "resolutions" and choosing, instead, to just make slight tweaks in your daily behavior?
