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.…

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…
