After listening to the most recent Sustainable Minimalist Podcast about capsule wardrobes it got me thinking. I have a work uniform that I love and wrote about before. I have a standard running and lifting outfit that I love. I have a small but carefully curated shoe collection for my life that I love. I can get ready in minutes. I iron once a week. This whole capsule wardrobe thing really works for me.
I tried following Project 333 but that overwhelmed me because I just hate rules. Instead I try to have 12 to 15 work uniforms for each warm and cold weather along with a pair or two of flats and about 10 pairs of earrings. It might seem simple, boring, and repetitive but it is honestly relaxing. I am always wearing an uniform that I feel looks great on me.
Do you have a voluntary uniform for work? Did you build a capsule wardrobe?
Here are the show notes from the podcast I mentioned:
Sick of having a closet full of clothes + nothing to wear? If so, it’s time to seriously consider a capsule wardrobe.
A successful capsule improves self-esteem, reduces mental clutter + makes getting dressed a heck of a lot easier. But what’s the secret sauce to creating one that works, as opposed to one that’s ‘meh’?
It isn’t about base neutrals or accent pieces. It isn’t about following rigid rules, either.
My guest this week is Amanda Warfield. Amanda is back on the show to divulge the #1 secret for creating successful capsule wardrobes; she offers up the only capsule wardrobe planner you’ll ever need, too.
