30 pieces in my spring capsule wardrobe

My capsule wardrobe is adapted from the Project 333 challenge. Over the course of creating many capsule wardrobes I’ve been fine-tuning them to figure out what works best for me. Last year I decided to no longer include shoes as part of my capsule wardrobe, I feel I have a good core “shoe capsule” and the one thing I occasionally seemed to miss was a certain pair of shoes. This has worked well this last year and I will continue to have a separate shoes from my wardrobe. My “shoe capsule” includes a pair of boots, heeled boots, sneakers, sandals, slip-ons, heels and athletic/running shoes.

I also no longer try to hit a specific number, just build a wardrobe I think would work well. It usually ends up being 30-35 pieces, often on the higher end in the fall/winter and lower in spring/summer.

Hope you have a beautiful spring! 🌼🌷

    Pretty but buying 17 or 18 new items per season is in no way ecological.

      I’m not sure how you got the impression I buy that much? Typically I might have 3-5 new additions to a capsule wardrobe.

    Hi, I am quite interested on the way you are arranging wardrobes. I wanted to ask you which app you are using to mix and match the clothes. And after u take pictures to your piece of cloth how do you trim the picture and upload it to the app. If you please explain that step by step.

      Hi Ava,

      I don’t use an app, I just take a photo on a white wall and edit them a bit and put them together in photoshop.
