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.

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 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 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?

We've found our why, we ruthlessly purged our closet, we got inspired and made a visual guide to stay focused. Can we start shopping, yet?

Slow your roll, friend. Let's clearly define our capsule wardrobe. If you've made the decision to move forward with a capsule wardrobe, it's very likely you had issues before. Issues with your shopping habits and with your budgeting. Or lack thereof. You always feel stressed when you get dressed and nothing in your closet feels like you.
