August Capsule pieces and week 1 recap!
I LOVE capsule wardrobes... let me tell you why! First off, your outfits are pre planned, so you don't have to wake up everyday thinking "I have nothing to wear" or "what the hell; am I going to wear" then proceed to stand in your closet for 30 minutes only to throw on the same outfit you always wear feeling not only defeated, but possibly frumpy, unstylish, and late to work!
They also eliminate clutter! Clutter is TERRIBLE for your mental health! Whether you realize it or not, clutter can actually interfere with your relationships, your sleep, even how you eat and your digestion!! Isn't that wild?? By eliminating closet clutter, you can feel better, sleep better, and be less cranky!!
And I don't know about you, but I have a bit of a shopping problem! The problem is, somedays I HATE shopping, and somedays I love it! haha I tend to over spend, collect items I never wear, then feel guilt and shame about spending that money that could have been used somewhere else and now I have to figure out a way to get rid of the excess...sound familiar??
I know the term "capsule wardrobe" can be a bit.....triggering, to some! It implies a SMALL wardrobe that you will get bored with, something that doesn't suit your lifestyle or your actual style, and maybe just too limiting! So let's change that term...let's call it a CURATED CLOSET!
I feel like this term is better suited for most of us because:
A: a capsule insinuates those are the only clothes you will ever have
B: a curated closet allows for additions, switch outs, seasonal add ons, etc.
C: a capsule is generally only one style! A curated closet is YOUR style, YOUR life style!
If this sounds up your alley...the Curated Closet system is coming VERY soon for you to work with me to have a pre planned curated closet made specifically for you considering your work, home, and play styles so you never have to think about what to wear again, it will be pre planned for you with TONS of options, plus the ability to change it up when needed or wanted!!
BUT....let's talk about the "capsule" errr.....curated closet that I am sharing this month on the B Shaped Body instagram!!
I chose items that are not just basics, but some loud, fun prints, bright colors, and more! And I'm going to show you how many different ways these 31 items can be mixed and matched over the next 31 days!
Let's start with what items I chose and where you can get them:
(keep in mind that some items may not be available, so I have linked similar items!)
Now that you have seen everything I can work with, let's look at the first weeks worth of outfits! BUT FIRST...I know what you're thinking...sure its nice to have less stuff, but I still don't know how to make outfits that are cute! HAVE NO FEAR!!! I actually pre planned all of my outfits for the month ahead of time, and I can do the same for you! That is just PART of the Curated Closet System! No thinking on your part, its like paint by numbers, but for clothing!
So there is the first week!! I can tell you already having my outfits planned out took off SO MUCH STRESS for me! The last time I did a capsule, I was left trying to figure out what I would wear everyday and I ended up repeating some of the items almost daily because my creativity was having a hard time! But this round, having pre-planned outfits is just hitting so different. My ADHD isn't stressed over what to wear!
If you're wanting to eliminate
Feeling like you have nothing to wear
Wearing the same thing day in and day out
feeling frumpy, unstylish, or boring
being late to work from trying to find an outfit
trying on three or four things and still hating them all
not knowing what pieces work for your body shape
not knowing how to dress in a color palette that accentuates your features
shopping non stop
then buckle up because the Curated Closet System is coming SOON!!!!
See you next week!!
