I still haven’t bought anything and I’m still going strong after two weeks of the #20items21days challenge (week 1 here). In fact, I might be in love with the concept of a capsule wardrobe. Here’s why:
My mornings are way simplified. I know I have less choices, so I spend less time trying things on. I already have a mini-capsule full of stuff I like and that looks good on me.
Packing is a cinch. I had to hop on a plane this week for a week back in SC with family and packing was a no-brainer. I don’t even think I made it to 20 items, and I had extra room in my suitcase.
Since the focus is off of stuff, i don’t think about shopping. Or when I do, I think about what investment pieces I’d like. Don’t quote me quite yet, but I’m thinking I’d much rather have one $100 top that is super well made with some superb design rather than five tops I’ll probably wear a few seasons before they’re out of style or worn out.
Not to mention shoes. Don’t get me started on shoes. I’m definitely into the idea of whittling down my shoe collection to the ones I really like and that fit my mom and runner feet. I mean, I’ve worn my wonderful Troentorp clogs in the four most recent outfit posts (see exhibits A, B, C and D). (Speaking of, pretty sure I need some clogs in this beautiful Bordeaux color. Or these nude clogs.)
I feel like I’m really honing my personal style. And it’s fun.
So how did week 2 go? Take a look!
