Capsule Wardrobe RED-y….Maybe

I’ve been thinking hard about a capsule wardrobe.  I LOVE clothes, shoes, and everything in between, but I have too much stuff!  I mean, when you pull a dress out of your closet and think to yourself how cute it is, but can’t remember ever buying it, then you may have a problem.  #Firstworldproblems

With that being said, I will may work with a Capsule wardrobe for the spring.  I’m still doing a bit of research, and have found this blog to be very useful. To get a bit of practice, I created a few outfits from this amazing red sweater I scooped from Old Navy, using the items I have in my closet.  Some of these pieces, you have seen before in previous posts.  I guess that helps build that capsule wardrobe I’m speaking of!

Option #1:  You will see a lot of leopard in the next few options, but what can I say, it’s the perfect neutral.

Option #2: I can’t tell you how much I love all things plaid!! throw the red sweater on top of this plaid shirt, or wear the sweater alone and tie the shirt around your waist.  Either way works!

Option #3: I’ve used this bag for everything from a carry on, to a computer bag, to my every day bag.  It’s reversible, inexpensive, and comes in every color imaginable. I like to pair this outfit with a pair of brown tights when it’s a bit cooler.

Option #4: This H town weather has not afforded me many opps to wear my OTK (over the knee) boots, but when I get the chance, it’s on! This exact clutch sold out, but I’ve seen them everywhere if you are looking to add one to your wardrobe.

Option #5: I love scarves, but it as previously mentioned, it hasn’t been cold enough in Houston to wear them.  I can’t wait for those 2 weeks of winter! Mixing stripes and leopard is a new found love of mine.


My exact leggings are here, but here is a similar pair / /  Similar Leopard Cross body, Splurge here and save here / / Combat boots here / / Similar scarf here and here / / Sunnies / / Lippie


Option #6: I love what a leopard print brings to an outfit.  It matches nothing but goes with everything! When in doubt, throw in a bit of leopard to take your outfit up a notch.

What I love most about all six of the above options is that they are not hard to put together and most pieces can probably be found in most of our closets, yet they still look put together.  That’s also a reason why I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe.

I hope this motivates  you to attempt to live a minimal life, (at least in your closet) if you don’t already.  I’m not sure how successful I will be in executing a capsule wardrobe, but one can only hope.
