Yeah, so I’m pretty much the last person who should be writing about fashion with any authority. I actually wasn’t even sure I was going to write this post, but after mentioning my capsule wardrobe a few times on social media (and checking with the awesome members of the Back to Her Roots VIP group on Facebook)—you guys asked me to write about it, and I love you all and would do anything for you, so here I am!
I mean, don’t get me wrong, I like looking nice, but fashion is definitely not a passion of mine. I much prefer a world where I don’t even have to think about clothes. I want my closet to just automagically be full of clothes that are comfortable, make me feel great, and are reasonably on-trend. And that is exactly why a capsule wardrobe is perfect for me.
If you’ve never heard of it, a capsule wardrobe is a simple concept that has taken the internet by storm over the past few years. The idea with a capsule wardrobe is simple—you limit the number of items in your closet at one time and then swap those clothes out seasonally.
So instead of you closet being packed with all of your clothes, all the time, you create small curated collections (or capsules) that work for your climate, your lifestyle, and the current season. That way, when you walk into your closet, all you see are options that (a) are appropriate for your lifestyle (b) are appropriate for the season and (c) make you feel awesome. It makes getting dressed every morning SO. MUCH. EASIER. Simpifying my closet has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
