The idea of your own capsule collection with pieces already hanging in your closet is blowing up on so many blogs and magazines. And while shopping in your own closet is not a new concept, somehow it feels fresh and all of the sudden genius. My closet feels muddled and with the depth of winter still upon us, getting involved in the hype seems like perfect timing.
So I cleared a section of my closet and pulled ten looks that cover mostly daytime (including comfy ones) with a couple elevated looks for a dinner or date night.
This took all of twenty minutes and made my closet look really cool. ha
Now don't get it twisted, I am in work out clothes a lot like the best of them. And I am sure it will continue to be that way. But when I know the gym is not happening (or post workout) I have something to grab quickly in the morning and feel put together. Even if my day mostly includes returning emails/phone calls, epic stamp sessions at the kitchen table, and a fancy outing to Target.
I highly recommend this little exercise. Plus, it makes you feel like you really have things together. ha Here is what I have hanging up right now (either exact or close match to what I have).
1. Cool girl LA Made leather block sweater $60 (on sale)
2. A classic J. Crew white cable sweater $79 (on sale)
3. The softest sweater/tee from Drifter $225
4. A slightly heavy H&M striped tunic $17
5. The perfect plaid shirt by Rails $148
6. A great tucked or untucked Joie Tank $82 (on sale)
Julie Billiard dolman sleeve tee $42 (forgot the pic, but a total staple for comfy days and travel!)
Spanx Leggings $68 really the best
Love a printed pant like these Joie Silk pants $166 (on sale)
These Hudson suck it all in $165
Comfy J Brand cropped skinnies $218
I always feel so chic in high waisted flare jeans Frame $225
1. A fun Adelyn Rae navy romper $98
2. Always a good idea, Lumiere stripe tee dress $38
3. Soft and almost pajama-ish Cloth & Stone chambray dress $138
Just add tights or leggings and you are set. Well at least for us super lucky cold weather girls.
This will be my first "capsule" so we will see how it goes and how long it lasts. I plan to put these pieces away as I wear them then refill when everything has been worn. What do you think, into it? Would love to know if you would do it or if you have how it went.
