Autumn Capsule Wardrobe Update

I am currently putting the finishing touches on my Winter Capsule Wardrobe.  Before I reveal it I want to update you on how I fared with my current clothing capsule.

I was incredibly happy with how it turned out. The colour scheme was perfect – I loved how I had colours to work with, but that they were seasonally appropriate and suited my mood. I also really enjoyed how easy they were to layer. When I started the wardrobe we were still having some very warm weather, but towards the

When I started the wardrobe we were still having some very warm weather, but towards the end, it got very cold. The clothing I had chosen straddled the seasonal change perfectly and I loved the versatility of it.

I was able to create a lot of different outfits and found I was wearing a variety of different pieces. I will say that I think I had too many pairs of pants in my wardrobe. Also, the extra pieces I did add I didn’t end up wearing much and could have waited until the next season. Lesson learned. The no shopping rule is there for a reason.

I used Stylebook to create outfits, plan my week’s looks and to keep track of what I was wearing and what I wasn’t. This app is incredible and has completely changed the game. I now have an even better idea of what my style is like and what I’m actually wearing. It has really helped me get my money’s worth out of my clothes.
