Capsule Wardrobe :: Fall

September 25, 2018

End of summer wrap up: My summer capsule was perfect. I had enough pairs of shorts, plenty of dresses and the right amount of shoes. And I actually didn’t even wear some of the things I put into my capsule, so I’ll have to rethink my selection for next summer. But overall, since it was my first capsule wardrobe, I’d say it was pretty easy to do and taught me that I can live with and enjoy having a minimal wardrobe!

Onto fall: I’m excited for fall, it’s my favorite season because of the warm coffee drinks, cooler weather, and…the clothes. Fall outfits are definitely my favorite to create to I’m excited to share with you my fall capsule! Most of my clothes are old (as in I bought them years ago when I didn’t exclusively shop at ethical stores) or they are thrifted (which I tend to do more than purchase from ethical stores).

And here it is, friends. Below I listed out things to think about while choosing clothes for your capsule!

When choosing clothes for your capsule, think about:

    1. Can I make outfits with these individual pieces?
    1. Are these clothes practical?
    1. What’s the weather going to be like during this season?
    1. Do I have any big events coming up?
  1. What does my day-to-day look like?
