Dreaming Of... Valentine's Day

I want to be practical. I want to be minimal. I want to be frugal. But I also still want to dream.

For Valentine's day, I like to celebrate by somehow showing my significant other that I care for him. Sometimes that means baking something sweet (try this pound cake). Or cleaning the whole apartment so he can relax. Or just letting him be alone with his video games.

Back To Basics: Tees

It is so incredibly easy to get lost when trying to put together a wardrobe. I'm basically starting from scratch because I have purged my closet so many times... I've lost count.

I'm ruthless.

On one hand it's great. It means I'm truly paring down to the items I only love. Unfortunately it means I don't have much to start with. That's why in this post, I made the decision.

It's time to get back to basics.

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.

Upon realizing I had nothing to wear that I would feel good in, I would get all sulky and feel the need to fix my problem by buying another outfit. That outfit would make me feel great in that moment, and then I would go through the whole cycle again each time...

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?

Wardrobe Inspiration and Confessions

Hello blog and blog readers,

I have to confess - I've been avoiding you. After my first post I was on a mini roll. I had a plan, I had ideas, I was going to do this. I took pictures for my many future posts, I envisioned my blossoming internet fame as I gained thousands and thousands of Pinterest followers and blog-readers... I had big dreams and the ambition to drive them forward!
