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…

Reviewing my autumn capsule

How I envy my fellow bloggers in the southern hemisphere as they don their spring clothes and plan their summer capsules! Here in the UK, the weather has turned chillier quite suddenly. I’ve planned my capsule to take me up the end of November, which will be three months and I’m glad of all the…

Capsule wardrobe – FAQ

I’ve had some, admittedly cautious, enquiries regarding my capsule wardrobe lately and thought it may be useful to chat about some of the most frequently asked questions. This is how I apply the idea of a capsule wardrobe to my lifestyle but there are numerous options out there. What exactly is a capsule wardrobe? To…

Capsule Combinations

My first foray into the world of Project 333 was in autumn 2015.   I felt quite anxious about attempting it but thought I’d give it a go. I selected clothes for my workwear capsule and then some for my casual wear capsule. So 2 capsules, each of 33 pieces. 66 pieces felt quite limited (!)…

Autumn capsule: curating

  I’ve transitioned from my summer to my autumn capsule. It feels great – like I have a whole, new wardrobe! It’s one of the things I love about Project 333. While the number is limited, it’s not restrictive and each capsule lasts for only three months – not long enough to get tired of…

Autumn capsule: preparation

  There’s a chill in the air, a diminishing of leaves on the trees and my summer clothes are beginning to feel inadequate – autumn is coming! Personally, I love autumn – or fall for my US readers :-). I like the excuse to snuggle into warmer clothes, dust off my boots and start lighting…

Autumn capsule: planning

When I’m planning a new capsule, I have a simple technique to figure out the proportions of what type of clothes I need: Calculate the hours in a week Figure out how many hours I’m in sleepwear (not just asleep!) Count how many hours are spent at work (including commuting) What’s left is down-time, so…

Neutral cardigan and the absence of joy

I love Marie Kondo’s phrase of ‘does this spark joy?’ when reviewing an item, but sometimes think it’s overstating how I feel.  My raincoat doesn’t exactly spark joy but I wouldn’t be without it.  So, I’ve tended to use The Minimalists’ phrase of ‘does this add value to my life?’.  This suits me better and…
