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.
Yep. That’s it. See you next week.
