A Week in Clothes 8.13-8.20

Oh my gods, you guys.  What a long, long week it has been.  Rather, a long month.  I haven’t been posting much (quality over quantity, I hope) due to an intense family situation and consequently being super busy and exhausted.  So here we are, over a week since my last post, and I have decided to check in re: my Summer capsule wardrobe.

Here’s something I didn’t expect:

Having less makes me want less.  It’s a drive not unlike having/wanting more, but cheaper.  Having given myself permission via the capsule wardrobe to wear my favorite things more often and repeat outfits freely, I find myself doing just that–repeating the same 5 things over and over.  I feel great about this except that I still have too much stuff!  A few of the things I bought at the beginning of summer are favorites that I rotate frequently (chambray swing dress, jeans, teal maxi skirt) but I wear the other things only sometimes.  I could definitely have done without them.  We think we need more than we do.

The past week has been pretty typical of what I wear, although I don’t usually wear shorts and a tshirt to work.  I hadn’t been sleeping and that was about all I could handle.  It is one of my favorite weekend/evening outfits, though!  Anyway, here is a look at what I’ve been wearing…in cartoon form.
