Transition capsule wardrobe

So, this is something a bit different for me.

A transition capsule wardrobe.

Part of me is going ‘hang on, is this cheating?’.

The other part of me is going ‘of course not – my capsule needs to work for me – end of’.

I follow the lovely Courtney Carver over at Project 333 and the guidelines suggest you change your capsule every three months, beginning on a certain date. This is certainly a tried and true method but as I find the weather in the UK a little tricky, I tend not to have a fixed date. I still keep to a seasonal capsule, but it fluctuates a bit.

Tree 2The weather at the moment in the UK is on the warmer side – for autumn, that is. Some of my lighter pieces, that were great a few weeks ago, aren’t warm enough. But I’m not ready to change to my winter wardrobe yet, as it will comprise mainly warm jumpers, boots, heavy winter coat – you get the idea.

I thought I’d try a transition capsule. I’ve swapped some pieces out but haven’t changed over totally to my winter capsule.

It feels a bit loose and disorganised, to be honest. I like the structure and definition of seasonal capsules, but the most important thing is that it works for me and my lifestyle. And I’m only wearing about half my autumn clothes now anyway. I suppose I could have planned a bit better and I can still wear lots of layers. But it’s just not working as well as it could be, for the current weather.

And as Courtney is fond of saying, Project 333 is not an exercise in suffering!

The weather is due to get colder over the next couple of weeks so I’m only conducting a mini-experiment, before changing to my winter clothes.

Anyone else find they need to modify things from time to time? Have a great week 😊

    Living in a warm client, with a burst of unseasonal cold every now and then, layers are the way to go. As long as I keep the choices minimal, I don’t get too caught up in the number of pieces I own. This works for me. Nice post showing how personal and flexible living with less can be!

    What is up with the weather here, Lol? It’s been disturbingly mild and then you can get caught out with a cold snap. You’re right – layers are the way to go.

      Hi Julie, it’s a bit weird, isn’t it?! Hence the confusing state of my wardrobe! The weather is neither one thing nor the other – and you’re so right, layers are the only answer at the moment!! Lxx
