Good morning! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend. Maybe I’ll share some weekend highlights with you tomorrow, but today we’re talking capsule wardrobes.
Last week I shared that Anne and I are linking up to share our Fall Capsule Wardrobes and I let you in on how my mini August capsule was going. Today Anne and I are sharing our Fall pieces and we invite all of you to link up with your fall pieces, or where you’re at in the process, or if you’re thinking of joining but you’re not sure… basically if you want to discuss the topic of a capsule wardrobe in any capacity, we would love for you to linkup.
Sadly, though, I am barely able to write this post. I think the blog powers that be are trying to tell me something. First, I had a crapton of issues with my blog on the backend and now my laptop won’t start… so fun. I’m writing this on my Mom’s mac and it’s taking me three times as long because I am a complete idiot with macs. And I don’t have the pictures of my pieces because they are on my laptop that won’t start. Any recommendations on a laptop that won’t break the budget? It needs at least one (preferably two) USB ports and an SD card reader for the pictures. An HDMI port would be nice too, but not needed.
Back to the topic at hand. I am currently taking a break from switching over my closet from August to Fall (although I am leaving some summery pieces behind because of the 90 degree weather forecast all week). So I thought I would share with you how that is going and some pieces I am excited to see again.
When I created my August capsule, I followed Caroline’s rule to completely empty out your closet (well, except I did it section by section, as in remove all sleeveless blouses, sort them, put them back, take out short sleeve, repeat). When I transitioned my closet to Fall, I removed all the August pieces except for the few that were making it to Fall, took them off the hangers, folded them, and piled them up. Then I took all the Fall pieces out of my storage bin, hung those up, and put the August pieces in the bin. When I went through my closet for August I made sure to put the rest of the pieces in seasonal piles so I could easily pull out one pile to put in the closet.
For Fall I’m excited for all the navy and patterns like gingham and plaid. I’m also excited to work on incorporating my green cargo vest more. I bought it last Fall and it has been severely underused. I’m hoping this year I’ll use it to switch up my small clothing selection.
Sorry for such a text heavy post! I was excited to post pictures of my favorite pieces, but we all know why I can’t. I’ll update everyone as soon as I’m able. Now it’s your turn to linkup! I can’t wait to read about where you all are at. And don’t forget to send over any laptop suggestions!
