Since spring is now upon us (yay!), it also means that it’s time for me round up my spring capsule wardrobe. It’s been a full three months since I started this little capsule experiment, and so far the results have been interesting. I definitely enjoyed having less options, since it meant that my closet stayed tidy and I couldn’t have any of those “try a million things in my closet only to end up wearing the first thing” type of crisis. That said, I did have few weak moments with the no shopping rule (how am I supposed to resist the perfect striped tee?). Here are some of the things I learned from my first capsule:
WHAT I LEARNED FROM MY WINTER CAPSULE WARDROBE
- In three months you can get really sick of just wearing sweaters
- Not shopping for three months can be surprisingly difficult
- I still mostly wear the same three shirts most of the time
So for my spring wardrobe I definitely wanted to have more variation and a more even distribution of long and short sleeves and casual and fancier options (and I don’t want to even look at a sweater for the next three months). Also, I still have ways to go in trying to actually wear everything that’s in my wardrobe, instead of wearing that aforementioned perfect striped tee everyday. But, here’s what’s in my spring capsule wardrobe:
MY SPRING CAPSULE WARDROBE
Two of my favourite fashion trends this spring are definitely stripes and polo necks (I took my time warming to that one), so I added both of those into my spring capsule wardrobe. Compared to my winter capsule, my spring wardrobe also has a bit more colour in it, mostly hints of blush & beige. The only thing still left on my shopping list are black booties, since I didn’t manage to buy them last season.
