Winter Capsule Wardrobe (FREE download)
I’m really late getting to this.
Somewhere between Christmas, taking care of infant twins + my two preschoolers, and all that is life here and now, I thought I’d be able to get this post up this winter. Oh boy, was I wrong.
But here in New England, we have some winter left to shake out. Even April could (definitely) bring snow so raking through my wardrobe isn’t a bad idea this time of year. Especially since the twins are just over one-year-old now, which is how long it takes for my body to adjust back to normal from pregnancy.
I’ve been purging through my closet seasonally for about 3 years now and finally I’m seeing some style results. Before those three years I couldn’t define my own style. I was a chameleon, shopping for myself as I would shop for whoever influenced my style last. I also grew up with the mindset that buying a shirt in the same color and style of something you already own was foolish, and maybe it still is for some. Bottom line, I was buying things that I didn't love and I was not wearing. But now I say, adopt a uniform and love it.
For me, in this stage, having a uniform is a great tool to help keep my laundry down and my closet organized. Typically, I’ve been choosing black, white or blue tops paired with jeans or ponte-knit pants, like these Stevie pants from Old Navy. I buy them on sale and hem them myself, but they also offer petite sizes. Being comfortable at home while also able to jump in the car to pick up a child is important to me.
So, here’s my gift to you! My free one page winter capsule wardrobe planner! One copy with what I start my capsule with, and one completely blank for you to play with what’s in your closet.
