Capsule Wardrobe Is So Much More Than I’d Hoped

Well, I have had Purple Heart come two more times to pick up bags upon bags of clothes, shoes and accessories that I just won’t let weigh me down any longer!  It feels so great and my closet is slowly but surely emptying and I am placing pieces in it that make me look and feel great!

Some articles of clothing I have added are:

Each piece compliments nicely those items I have decided to keep as well as items I have purchased thus far!

What I have learned with this new Minimalist approach is that we hold on to so much STUFF!  And I am saying WE because I am pretty sure I am not alone in this.  I have already told you all what sorts of things I had in my closet.  Things that didn’t fit, things that didn’t compliment my TODAY body and things even the 80’s weren’t calling to get back.

I can’t tell you all how liberating and freeing it feels to get rid of some stuff.  Maybe you don’t have to be as dramatic (who me, dramatic?) and revamp and minimize your entire wardrobe but what not try to lighten your load on a smaller scale, say, your pants?  Or your t-shirts?  Hell, even your socks?  Baby steps will lead to leaps, I promise.   Maybe it isn’t even clothes for you.  Maybe it is just stuff in the attic you are holding onto for who knows what or one too many “junk drawers” in the kitchen.  De-cluttering will have a domino effect.  You just wait and see.  You intend to organize one drawer and it will spiral into more…

That is my hope anyway.  That once I clear my closet of the excess, I can focus on the core- which is me.  When all that time I wasted worrying about what I looked like and if this went with that is free and clear, I will have that time to spend on ME and what sort of self I want to  be.




Capsule Wardrobe Update

Well.  I am on my way to making this capsule wardrobe a success.  I currently have 6 full bags ready to go to the Purple Heart and I have a few items on eBay (more to list today) and I have not even finished going through all my clothes yet.

Some things I have kept:

Pair of “dress” jeans-dark

Long Sleeve white Tshirt

Black zip up vest

Black trousers

Khaki trousers

Denim jacket

Baby blue button down blouse

White button down with tiny black polka dots

Black leggings

1 pair of funky Lula Roe leggings (gotta have some crazy color sometimes, right?)

Some things I have recently bought:

41Q+G1RgcIL._SY90_ This classic white button down blouse

4160CGttzSL._SY90_  These comfortable nude pumps

51GT7QwMGxL._SY90_ These adorable leopard print booties

41KTNl4AzPL._SX90_ These AMAZING pumps for a pop of color

31b8E9jCPdL._SX90_ This timeless black pump


I will show you more things as I get them in!  This has been a liberating experience and today I had such a great time dressing.  It was easy, thoughtless while being totally thoughtful and I feel great about how I look!

Onward we go!
