Hi guys! Today we’re taking a look back at my fall capsule wardrobe: what I wore the most, what I wore the least (or not at all), changes I made during the season, pieces I will be donating, and what lessons I learned this season. I talk about all of these topics in the video below, but first I want to reflect on my experience using a capsule wardrobe over the last two years.
Now that it’s winter, I’ve officially been using a capsule wardrobe for two years. The time has flown by and I can say that I’m so glad I made the switch. On a daily basis, having a capsule wardrobe makes my closet seem so spacious and clean, makes it easier to get dressed, and makes me feel better because I have clothes that I like to wear. I underestimated the impact it would have to give myself permission to get rid of all the pieces in my closet that I didn’t really love; it’s been very freeing. Using a capsule wardrobe has made a positive impact on how I see myself and that has helped me with my weight loss journey, which is a benefit I didn’t imagine when starting this process.
Capsuling has also decreased the amount of laundry I generate and the frequency that I have to wash it. That surprised me, too. I figured that with less clothing I would be washing it more, but that has not proven to be the case.
There are a lot more positive things I could say about using a capsule wardrobe but I’ll leave it at this: I have yet to experience a downside and I don’t think I’ll ever go back.
