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.…

Spring capsule, spring style

After postponing the start of my spring capsule because of heavy snowfalls, I’m ready to go now. Although it looks as if it may start snowing again here, after some sunny days – #crazy weather! You know the drill by now – review what worked and what didn’t from my winter capsule, decide what I’m…

Capsule Flexibility

A week is a long time in the world of the capsule wardrobe 😊 Last week, I wrote that spring was almost within touching distance. This week, here in the UK, we’ve been plunged back into winter again, thanks to a heavy snowfall. And that’s exactly why I like to have flexibility within the framework…

Capsule shopping deadlines

I hesitate to throw a word like ‘spring’ around with reckless abandon but while the days remain cold, the sun is making more of an appearance. We’ve a while to go yet, weather and warmth wise, but we’re days away from the beginning of March. Hello spring capsule – I feel you beckoning! It will…

A minimalist uniform

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about having a useful uniform of jeans, jumper and boots. It’s easy, cosy and relatively presentable. Jewellery, higher-heeled boots and a scarf can dress it up. But I found I was truly turning it into a uniform and wearing it almost every day, when I came in from…

Winter wardrobe

Is it me? Or has this been a really fast three months? I feel as though it could have been a couple of weeks since I was writing about my autumn capsule wardrobe! And now I’m writing about my winter wardrobe 😊 But that’s the great thing about having a capsule – I don’t have…

De-cluttering to shop?

I was talking to a friend during the week, who said she would spend this weekend getting her winter clothes down from the attic and packing all her lighter clothes up – de-cluttering as she went. I was impressed she had lasted this long with only light clothes – but still! She then said, her…
