  • layering tanks and camis
  • dressier pieces for church, etc.
  • casual, less stylish outfits I wear around the house

I’m Sold!

I’m totally sold on the Capsule Wardrobe concept–it’s simplified my life, saving my time and sanity.  Everything fits comfortably in my closet; everything fits comfortably on my body.  Every time I open the closet, it’s simple to choose the right outfit.  I love it!

It’s obvious I have much to learn about photography, and I am by no means a serious fashionista, stylist or designer.  But I hope this Capsule Wardrobe series has answered many of the questions and comments I’ve received about my own wardrobe, and I hope my humble attempts will encourage you to streamline your own wardrobe!

And now spring is just around the corner…time to start thinking about Spring Capsule Wardrobes!

Have you streamlined your wardrobe or created a Capsule Wardrobe?  I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!

    Nice job! I’ve been doing a capsule wardrobe for a year now and I still don’t feel mine is perfect. It changes each season as you get more in tune with your style and desires. Mine is morphing into a “outdoor adventures”(as you call it) and a bit of casual vintage. I was really hoping to see someone else’s take on a more rugged capsule wardrobe. SAHM capsules are usually a bit more laid back. Since- no more office wear. I personally hate wearing blazers, so I don’t anymore.

      Yes, a rugged capsule wardrobe would be fun! Maybe you could take it on, Stephanie. 🙂
