If you have been here in a hot minute you guys KNOW that I love having a capsule wardrobe. Or to be more specific, I follow some of the guidelines of a capsule wardrobe, but have come up with a whole system that I call a Simplified Closet. Basically speaking, I choose a couple of uniforms, a color palette, and then make a zillion outfits out of that<—–actual number;)
>>>You can get my step by step instrictions on how to create this system for yourself HERE. This is my email course that teaches you EXACTLY how to implement this into your own wardrobe, quickly and easily!
I have been doing this exact routine for about 2-3 ish years now, and this is where all the Weekly Looks recaps you see here every week come from. I come up with many, many different outfits from the uniforms I have created and the color palette that I prety much stick to. (I also believe in having a few, fun OUTLIERS that just jazz it all up sometimes, too! HELLO palm print kimono!)
You’ll notice week to week that I tend to rewear my stuff a lot, because this is what we do in the real world, and because I really enjoy wearing stuff I love over and over again. I truly live by the advice and systems I have created in my 6 day email course, and I love the ease it has brought into my life! I shop more intentionally (I’m not about to tell you not to shop anymore…), and I buy stuff that works for my life. I’m a ‘work from home mama’ and I have a super casual life. BUT, I also know that this system works for all women, whether you work from home of not. By filling your closet with uniforms and certain color palette, everything kind of just goes together. You can also have different capsules for your different parts of your life, both work and play. It’s easy!
A note on uniforms: I’m not telling you to wear the same thing over and over again, I promise! I’m just all about having you pick several outfit combos that you feel amazing in, and create different outfits with that formula in mind. For instance, one of my Summer uniforms is a graphic tank/tee + bottoms+ accessories. I can mix and match different tops, pants/shorts/skirts, etc in there and make a ton of outfits.
Also! I switch my uniforms/outfit formulas by seasons! Which makes sense, as the weather is very different, ha! My color palette that I stick to changes as well, though I have found that I like to wear the same-ish colors year round, so most of my stuff always goes together. It is pretty awesome!
So that’s it! For the next month I am going to show you 5 outfits a week with about 30 pieces that I pulled for this challenge. I will link each outfit in a weekly post, with shopping links and sizing details, and then recap it all in the end. It’s going to be so much fun!
