• My First Winter Capsule

    Ok so I finally got around to posting my winter capsule in it’s entirety. Better late than never right? The following image does not contain all the exact brands I have but all items very closely resemble  my actual pieces. Afterwards I’ve provided an itemized list with the actual brands listed as well as a link to buy if the item is current. Originally I started the winter with close to 40 pieces but I quickly realized that I’m far happier with fewer pieces and get less frustrated and more creative with a smaller selection. So in the end, 29 pieces are all that made the final cut. I still have many combinations I haven’t tried yet and I’m looking forward to getting really creative during this last month of winter. That’s right….. one month left of winter, who else is throwing a gigantic party in their head right now?!? I’m already getting together my spring capsule which is infinitely more inspiring to me than winter and I’m so excited to share it with you soon!

    I’d love to hear from any of you fellow capsule wardrobe newbies to see how you liked your first capsule and what you’d do differently if anything. If you are working up the nerve to try out a capsule (it took me over a year) and have any questions, ask away in the comments below and I’ll do my best to help in anyway I can. Capsule wardrobing has simplified my life in such a big way and has brought so much more joy into my life by shifting the focus away from owning things and keeping my closet and clothes in their proper place and perspective. See for yourself just how much of a difference a capsule wardrobe can make in your life and make it a goal to try it out this spring. I’ll be posting a lot of fun ideas and tips on my Instagram to help you along the way, I hope you’ll join me!

    So glad you like everything and I love the outfits you have put together!

  2. Hey Ali, first time I’ve been to your blog and I love it! You have such a gentle and kind vibe. I think you’ve nailed your Winter capsule. Thanks for sharing. I particularly love the green sweater, it’s such a gorgeous colour!

    As I said on Instagram, I’m with you in posting mine late (still not up!). My Winter one is quite small as we moved last year from Sydney to London so I barely had any ‘real Winter’ clothes, haha. It’s been a bit of a blessing in that sense though, because it’s helped me realise what I’d really love to add / what’s missing. I agree that the whole process really does make a huge difference and helps shift your perspective to what’s important, which is an amazing thing!
