A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I was in the process of cultivating a capsule wardrobe. The blog Un-Fancy has been a huge inspiration in my process + it doesn’t hurt that Caroline has a similar style to what I would pick off the racks anyway. I literally sat down, drew out boxes ( similar to the image above ) and filled in ideas for my wardrobe based on what I already had and what I need to fill the cracks. It’s kind of funny how easy it was to figure everything out once I could see it on paper. Before, I would get overwhelmed and not buy anything at all, leaving me with a very sparse closet. I was literally wearing jeans + tees every day.
The biggest thing I’ve learned throughout this whole process is to find brands that fit really well and start from there. For me, that happens to be J.Crew + Everlane. I may discover good finds elsewhere, but these are my two “go to” brands that just never fail. From there, I’ve learned to simply be myself. I’m not a very fancy person and tend to wear simplistic and casual outfits on the daily … so that’s where my focus was. As you can see ( above ), there’s a whole lot of white, grey, chambray, and cognac. My neutral sweet spot. I don’t really have much more color than that in my closet – – and have learned to be okay with it. Is this adult life? If any of you are currently putting together a capsule wardrobe and have any good / fun finds, I would love to hear about it! You can shop what I have so far below :
