Winter capsule

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 wardrobeWardrobe 2
  • 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?

30!

I know!

Wardrobe 1Long-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 😊
