Well, my transition wardrobe didn’t last very long! That’s life – I’m all about dressing appropriately. However, as an experiment, it worked out well and I may consider it again for uncertain weather.
Now – onto the winter capsule.
You know the drill:
- Take everything out of the wardrobe
- Give it a good clean and refresh
- Review what has and hasn’t worked for autumn
- Be clear on why this is
- Store, donate or carry forward to the next capsule, as appropriate
- Choose a base neutral colour for winter (black – shocker!!)
- Select winter-appropriate clothes
- Wash and iron clothes, clean shoes etc. as required – for both capsules
- Put all winter capsule clothes into wardrobe
- Enjoy the feeling of a fresh start and wearing clothes you haven’t seen for months 🙂
So far, so good. But wait – this has never happened before! Do you know how many pieces I have?
Long-time readers of my blog will know I’m a firm fan of Project 333. However, over the years, I have experimented and adapted and now know that the important thing is not to have 33 pieces – it’s to have a sufficient number of pieces that work for you and your lifestyle.
But I usually end up around the 33-35 mark. Long gone are the days when my ‘capsule’ was 66 pieces – 33 for work and 33 for casual. Good times, good times ….!
However, I don’t usually come under the 33 mark. But I’m going to go with it and see how I get on. I think I have more jumpers and fewer layering pieces so that may be why. Anyway, I’ll have a go and see how it works out. Anyone else started to embrace their winter capsule?
Have a great week 😊
