I wrote a while ago about Project 333. And I still like the concept of it -- simplifying! But after reading these two e-books: Embracing Beauty and The No Brainer Wardrobe, I've changed my focus a bit.
I want to really love every piece of clothing I own. I want all my clothes to be able to work together (color coordinate). I want to have clothes that will be appropriate for a variety of occasions -- cleaning/cooking/diapers, errands, date night, wedding/funeral, church, etc. I want my closet to remain simple but not to be stuck on a number. And finally, I want my closet to work from season to season and many/most pieces to overlap -- changing seasons of weather (this is Minnesota) and changing seasons of motherhood (pregnancy and nursing).
It's quite the challenge I have given myself, but I think I'm beginning to find focus and options...and slowly, over time, my wardrobe will become what I want it to be.
Here is my capsule wardrobe Pintrest board. (I use Pintrest for myself...to save ideas and think in pictures, not to inspire others or gain a following.) I've decided to focus my wardrobe on black, white and denim. I want to add color by using deep, rich colors -- these show wear and stains less easily and transition from season to season and event to event more easily and coordinate well with each other.
What do you think? Is your wardrobe a cohesive unit or is it a mish-mash of articles? Any tips or suggestions for me as I continue on this journey?
