Fabulous Finds Friday

Recently I found the blog Modern Mrs. Darcy and I really like her 2015 reading challenge as well as her Summer reading list.

I’ve heard of the capsule wardrobe concept before and have thought a lot about implementing it recently.  Some places to read more about it here, here and here.

It is definitely a big change, and I often consider doing it.  But, we went shopping for my birthday recently and I realized that I probably shouldn’t have done that if I was going to start the capsule wardrobe soon, because it would require more planning.

And then, recently, I watched this video on the 10 item wardrobe that Modern Mrs. Darcy posted and I like the idea of some extras which made the capsule wardrobe seem a bit less confining to me.

I’m considering doing it, but for now it has prompted me to go through my closet and ask the questions that Jennifer Scott mentioned in her video above:

STEP 1: TAKE OUT THE CLOTHES.
Go through every single piece in your closet and ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Does this fit me?
  2. Is this age-appropriate?
  3. Is this my true style?
  4. Do I love this?
  5. Do I wear this?

So I’ve decided to start there. And see what I can get rid of. And try to make all new purchases with the thought of “what if this was only one of 10 in my closet?”

And, I’m pretty sure I need to get this book to help me go through it also. It’s been on my list to read for a while now.
