Spring Capsule | Final Edit

Saturday, May 14, 2016

Here I am, half way through the duration of my spring capsule wardrobe, and I have just about finalised the items. I know, I took my time.

I knew at the beginning that I'd be doing some shopping and adding a few bits and pieces, so here's what the final selection looks like.


I decided not to add shoes to the final edit, instead allowing myself to wear anything I wanted south of my ankles. I found it too hard to pick just a few pairs, which perhaps suggests that I haven't got the balance of my capsule quite right, but the 'rules' aren't set in stone, and I prefer it this way.

Of my 37 items, 26 were things I already owned, 11 items are new, with 7 of those new items being from charity shops.  Overall 16 items are pre-loved.

I have purchased more for this capsule compared to my winter one but it's been harder to put together this time - thanks to the very changeable weather and my lack of t-shirts. I anticipate fewer purchases for my summer capsule (yep, mentally planning it already), and I'm hopeful that I'll purchase less than last year overall.

Have you ever tried a capsule wardrobe?

My seasonal capsule wardrobe is inspired by Un-Fancy.

    1. I like me some pretty :)
      Mother was clearly lacking in her duty as provider of sufficient hangers ;)

  2. It certainly looks a beautiful Capsule! I love your choices and how well they all gel together- there's a definite cool ocean and granite theme to the colour scheme! You have done well with it! You'll have to share pictures of it!x

    1. I knew your meaning, I've taken lots of photos already but some are bog standard jeans and t shirt outfits - nothing exciting, some are nice though. I'm really enjoying it.

  5. I've tried out a capsule wardrobe a couple of times now and I've ended up with something fairly similar and I've found it quite freeing! I love the colours in here, the mixture of whites and blues is very pretty and perfect for spring as well. I never worry too much about my shoes either, it's much more fun to just go with the flow when it comes to footwear! - Tasha

    1. It is freeing isn't it? I like that. I like that you pick all your favourite pieces and then wear them a lot.

  6. Love that you managed to create you spring wardrobe using charity shop clothes. I have never tried a capsule wardrobe, would probably save me time in the mornings.

    1. It does cut down on time spent pondering what to wear, and choosing the capsule helps to identify the items in your wardrobe that you don't particularly like.

  7. I *really* need to get on board with a capsule wardrobe, don't I?

    1. I really enjoy it. I find I wear more outfits from my capsule wardrobe than when I have free reign on everything I own.
