5 tips for de-cluttering your wardrobe

There’s definitely an autumnal chill lurking underneath this lovely September weather. So, yay – autumn capsule time! This week, I’ve been refreshing my wardrobe in readiness for autumn. I took my usual steps of reviewing my summer capsule, letting go anything which wasn’t working for me and selecting clothes for my autumn capsule. This process…

Summer capsule review

Recently, one of my favourite bloggers, A Small Wardrobe, invited her readers to join in a wardrobe diary challenge. The objective was to record each item of clothing you wore over a month and then review the findings. That way, you could see how many different items you actually wore, why and when you wore…

Second hand shopping

I wrote a few months ago about trying to shop more sustainably and ethically, especially in charity shops.  I’ve added a few more key pieces to my wardrobe that I wear and love. Cream, embroidered silk top:  It looks like a neutral under a jacket but take the jacket off, and it’s quite a dressy…

Shoe shakedown

For some time, no matter how often I de-cluttered my wardrobe, inexplicably, the shoe section remained intact. No rubbish bin cast a shadow over its existence; its ongoing survival was undisputed; it always lived to fight another day. It wasn’t that I didn’t know it needed de-cluttering. But I’m one of those awkward people who…

Fewer clothes = right clothes!

Regular readers will know I’m a fan of the capsule wardrobe – a limited number of pieces that I can mix and match easily, in a workable, flexible way. I’ve moved away from having ‘specifics’, that is a top that only goes well with one skirt. Or trousers that I can only really wear for…

Summer capsule 2018

Last week, I wrote about my summer capsule and how I use the Marie Kondo principle of ensuring an item ‘sparks joy’, before deciding to include it. I got a couple of queries regarding the detail of what was actually in my capsule, so here goes … 1 pair of jeans 3 pairs of trousers…

Sparking joy in my summer capsule!

This capsule has been a long time coming! I’m conscious how easily I could veer off course and turn this post into a weather update! But the weather has been so mixed lately that I’ve hesitated to put away the warmer clothes too soon. And mostly, that’s worked out. Except, of course, for the few…

Capsule wardrobe and the hanger rule

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about a wardrobe guideline that I found very useful when curating my clothes – one in, one out. When you’re doing a capsule, it’s so helpful to have recommendations that can be added into your own framework. There was another recommendation that initially I was very excited about.…

Capsule wardrobe – one in, one out!

There are a few stalwart guidelines around, that can help with intentional purchasing and maintaining a capsule wardrobe. An oldie, but a goodie, is the ‘one in, one out’ rule. So, if you buy something new, then you remove something you already own. Straightforward, no-frills, no room for negotiation and easy to follow. It find…

Shopping my closet!

I love navy! It’s less harsh than black (although my love affair with black is still going strong – we are not breaking up any time soon*). I feel navy is a strong neutral that’s a bit more appropriate for the brighter days of spring. This year, I mixed up the navy with some burgundy.…
