Summer Capsule

All done! When we hit fall it will have been a year since I started this. It’s been fun, but I’m also excited to see what comes after the strict rules of the capsule. I’ve been thinking alot about how easy it is to bring things into our home without thinking and that is something I really want to become even more aware of. I wonder what’ll help with that.

Super happy with the way this one turned out. Added a bit more color back in. I didn’t mind the neutrals of my spring closet, but a little color will be fun for the warmer weather. I bought all my new items from Everlane, Thredup, or thrifted. I really enjoyed filling in some gaps and now that I can easily spot my “needs” it takes no time to fill them.

I considered leaving off any shoes other than my birkenstocks, because those are my holy grail of footwear. I’ll be wearing those 90% of the time. I already had all the other shoes, so I might as well give myself options if I ever want them. Also, I ended up with 35 items, but I honestly didn’t even count until right now, so the number has really become inconsequential and I know that I don’t need as much as I’ve felt I do in the past.

I’ve really enjoyed this exercise, and am grateful for it. I have never gotten dressed with such ease or felt so good about what I wear. I’d highly recommend it for anyone who is frustrated with the state of their closet.
