My capsule wardrobe is adapted from the Project 333 challenge. Through my many capsule wardrobes I’ve been fine-tuning them to figure out what works best for me. The most recent change I made in the spring was to no longer include shoes as part of by capsule wardrobe because I feel I have a good core “shoe capsule” and the one thing I seemed to miss was often a pair of shoes that wasn’t included.

I also find that I need more pieces in the fall and winter and fewer in the spring and summer so I don’t try to hit a specific number, I just build a wardrobe I think would work well and it usually ends up being 30-35 pieces.

 

I want to say that I didn’t do the best job with my colours this season (even though there is very little colour). Like I mentioned in my how to build a colourful capsule wardobe video, it’s best to keep different colours in the same “area”. I really love the deep reds and greens but I have the reds as tops and the greens as layering pieces (I’m not really into dressing like Christmas). This is mainly because I started knitting the green cardigan years ago and just finished it a few weeks ago. In hindsight I would have chosen a different colour, but while it’s not ideal it’s still a really versatile and functional capsule wardrobe. I just wanted to mention it in case you’re wondering why I’m not following my own advice. XD

 

I also did the 10×10 Challenge again this year!
