Here is a little story for your Thursday. Lately there has been this theme going around in the blogging world called the capsule wardrobe
. You can read more about it here
but essentially it is the idea that less is more and quality over quantity when it comes to our wardrobes. I mean really, I can be the first to admit I have clothes from way back when, ones I never touch, and others I do not feel confident in. Why am I still holding on to them?
Anyways, I became inspired to build my own capsule wardrobe and go through a huge purge of all my clothes. This also happened right about the time of getting married and moving so I was on somewhat of a roll with downsizing. Let's just say I maybe got a little bit too carried away and donated a good three/fourths of my entire closet leaving it bare bones.
At the end of July I had a trip planned to Chicago so I was bound and determined to hold out until then to start the process of building a more simplistic and Laura-like wardrobe. Finally that time came and while it is only a start I was able to accumulate a few key pieces to start building a closet that I love, is versatile, and I feel great in.
What pieces are staples in your wardrobe? Have you worked on a capsule wardrobe this summer? Tell me about it!
