I never know where to start with my capsule wardrobe posts…

“Ta-da!?” “Here it is!?”

Yeah…

Let me start off by saying that I changed up,

1. How I shared details about pieces in my closet: at this point most of the items are old, thrifted, etc. So I’ve linked to exact items where available, but the rest are links to similar items (both in style and price point) if you are looking for something like it to add to your closet that is a new buy.

2. What items I’ve shared.  In my first all seasons capsule update I shared with you items that were in my closet + all the items that remained on my master list. I’ve decided to just share with you what I actually have in my closet and save the “wish list” items for another post. Cool beans?

66 pieces.  That are interchangeable throughout the seasons. That successfully remix for office, social, farm and mom life. That make it a dream to get dressed. That I feel completely at home in. Oh, and are also nursing friendly.

Yeah I’m gonna go ahead and say this is working extremely well for me! Haha!

Life is good folks. Carry on.

    I’ve been soaking in all the capsule wardrobe buzz (project 33 and the like), and stumbled upon your blog. I looooooove the year around minimal wardrobe idea. I’ve been thinking about trying the every three month thing, but was having a hard time figuring out how to guess at those ‘transitional’ items. Plus knowing myself going through a redoing my clothes every three months would just not happen. We usually do a warm whether and cool weather switch out (so twice a year), and I think your idea would be very adaptable to that. I’d just put away my heavy coats, sweaters, and boots in the summer and put away my shorts, sandals, and tank dresses in the winter. But I mean one small box could be whatever I’m not using instead of an entirely different wardrobe.

    Also, unlike most of the minimal wardrobe bloggers out there I love color, but I’m finding that if I have a good base of neutrals with a few things in my favorite colors I feel colorful, but can still wear my clothes together. Big improvement from my weird collection of patterns and colors of the past few years.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing this :)

    Hello Laura!
    I’ve stumbled upon your blog and this post today and I love it! I’m moving abroad to get my Master’s degree in 3 months and I’m freaking out a bit about the fact that I can’t take a lot of stuff with me. I’ve been contemplating the creation of a capsule wardrobe for a while, and this will be perfect time to do so. This is great inspiration!

    Have a great day and thanks for sharing :)

      Ah bummer, I just checked and it’s sold out! The image I used in my capsule wardrobe graphic was just sort of a generic representation of the one I have. I checked the link (below the graphic) to the actual one I have and it’s no longer available. Sorry!

    I was wondering the maker of the cognac booties you have on the cover of the wardrobe capsule with the three buckles. Their super cute!!

      So funny, someone else asked this same question a few comments up ^^

      I found them at Kohl’s actually, one or two seasons ago (still love them!) But I have seen these and these that are both similar in look — one a bigger investment than the other. :) Hope that helps!

    Really? No credit to Caroline of Unfancy? This is practically an exact replica of her blog post (and you’re using her pictures).

      Hi Alejandra. I’m not really sure how to respond to this, so I’ll give it my best honest go:

      You’re right. In this particular blog post there is no usual back link to Caroline’s blog — and for that I’ve goofed. This blog post is written as part of a sort of informal series and is several posts deep at this point. I wrote it with the understanding that those who would read were already familiar with my “capsule journey”, as I’ve been calling it, and did not take into account someone who might first encounter my blog with this very blog post. I’ve included an update above ^^

      That said, all of the links at the end of the blog post (other phases of my capsule journey) include back links to Caronline’s blog — so far be it to say that I haven’t given Caroline any credit! I love that lady and working together with her has been a pleasure. (See here and here.)

      As far as the pictures go? I designed this this collage in Canva, on my own accord, using stock imagery from around the web that best represent what’s in my closet.

      In any case, thanks for feeling open enough to comment here on my blog! I hope you’ll stick around.

        Laura,
        Thanks for your transparency. I did since look at some of your previous blog posts and saw you mentioned her. I shouldn’t have thought the worst–I just saw this post on Pinterest with some of her clothes and so many of her ideas on here without her being mentioned and wanted to look out for her. I now see that you are documenting your OWN journey with minimalism, and I’m grateful you’re sharing it with the world. :)

          Thanks for responding again Alejandra! It honestly means a lot that you’re grateful for my sharing. It can feel vulnerable at times, but I enjoy the dialogue it creates — such as this! :)

    How exactly are tunics and sheaths nursing friendly?

      Haha, well I suppose it’s all on how you wear them right? (i.e. over pants or not) In any case I never meant that every piece (especially every dress) was to be considered nursing friendly in this post. But in my experience, some dresses are so stretchy that you can actually pull them down from the top/front and skirts paired with tops were always my favorite go-to when trying to substitute wearing a dress (which is why I included four skirts in this particular “capsule”). Hope that helps!
