Welcome to my fall capsule wardrobe! Here I’ll show you everything that I plan on wearing for the next three months (37 pieces, including shoes!) Before I jump into the fun stuff, let me talk about why I’m choosing to limit my closet to these 37 items.
I have been playing around with a capsule wardrobe for a few months now. At the beginning of the summer, I decided to not purchase any clothing from June 1st through September 1st, and I actually stuck with it. (which is crazy, y’all! I was such a shopaholic!) Overall, I saved more money in those three months than I normally do and I found that over time, the temptation to go shopping, window shopping, or browsing online decreased dramatically. Opening up more time to do more important things.
I’ve been so inspired by minimalist fashion bloggers (un-fancy.com is my fave) and the “less is more” mentality. I noticed over the last three months that my last minute shopping decisions were leading to more money spent on things that I didn’t really want and need long term. I also would spend a lot of time shopping sales and buying things because they were cheaper, and not necessarily because I loved them, leading to a closet stuffed full with things that didn’t bring me much joy.
So, I purged my closet, donated so many things over the past three months and tucked things away in storage that I know I won’t wear for the next season, and now here I am with these 37 pieces. I’ve been dressing with this wardrobe for over a week now and it’s been so nice to get dressed in the morning with a closet full of things that I’m excited to wear. Although the quantity of my clothes has decreased dramatically, the overall quality of the pieces I do have is so much greater than before.
Now for the fun stuff, the clothes. Here we go:
