My capsule wardrobe – moving on…

For those of you who are interested in my wardrobe I can only say – I´m messing around.

One day I want to skip navy as my base color number two, another I´m reconsidering vintage, and sometimes I look at minimalist-bloggers and wonder if it would be liberating to cut down to 15 pieces of clothing….

I even tried to imagine joining project 333 but realized it´s a step too far at this time in my life.

So I´m back to a capsule wardrobe, and I will shortly present what I´m considering to be my picks for the winter of 2017/18. You have to remember though, that Sweden is a country with four seasons and winters can be snowy and cold, or rainy and grey.

Last year winter came early. And walking on footpaths like this demands hardware-shoes. No swanky booty heels here.

So I´ve decided to try and put together a wardrobe for Sept 25 until Dec 25. That means I have to consider a two-day work conference with a dinner, a fourday-trip with work to Geneva, a rock concert, a theatre show and Christmas as well as my busy workdays.

As for shoes and coats I will leave them out of my equation. Simply because I can´t predict the weather and in September I may need a winter coat or a jeansjacket…

I will also leave accessories out. I know project 333 doesn’t but to me a wardrobe is just TOO boring without accessories. And to be honest, my hoop earrings and swanky necklaces may be a few, but I haven´t bought any new for years.

I will probably sell some stuff and give some stuff away, but mostly I intend to re-use my huge pile of clothes and so I have a buying- BAN until December 27. That will be interesting! See you soon!

  1. Angelin. When I saw that you are doing a capsule wardrobe my reaction was “WHAT”??????? I like that you split the wardrobe from Sept. through Dec. And I like that you are excluding outerwear and accessories. I couldn’t live with a capsule wardrobe. I enjoy having stuff. OMG. You have given me a laugh by your “messing around” statement!!! XOXOXOXO!!!

    • Well Catherine, it´s an experiment! It´s mainly supposed to keep me from spending, to be honest, but I find the idea liberating at the same time! And if you had seen me carrying my piles of clothes from one wardrobe to another trying to get organized and decide what things to keep in my capsule you´d get a good laugh too!!I´m glad I don´t have a man in my life atm, if I did he´d think I was nuts! XOXOXOX
