So often, I look into my full closet and can never find anything to wear! I end up wearing the same ‘safe’ outfits over and over again. If there is a particular event or occasion coming up, I feel like I always need to buy a completely different outfit for it – which can be overwhelming and stressful.
Earlier in the year while we were in America for over a month, I was only able to take the bare essentials with me. It was so refreshing to discover how little I actually needed!
Enter Un-Fancy. I have been following Caroline’s journey online, while she was still a wedding photographer. She is now a minimalist fashion blogger, and her awesome blog, Un-Fancy, which documents her efforts toward a more minimalist lifestyle focusing on fashion. Her blog is centred around a brilliant concept of a “capsule wardrobe” – 37 pieces for each season (including shoes).
Caroline’s definition: “a capsule wardrobe represents more time and energy for what really matters (less time spent deciding what to wear / less time spent shopping / less time doing laundry or caring for clothes) more money for our dreams + helping others (less money spent on clothes that never get worn) and more contentment and happiness.”
Yes, yes and yes please. I love this concept! I’ve recently been going through my closet, trying on everything and donating or giving away clothes I haven’t worn for more than a year. This process takes time! I’m definitely not there yet, but I would LOVE to be able to open my closet and feel like I always have something awesome to throw on, be it Sunday brunch or a client meeting, because every single item hanging in my closet is something I would love to wear right this moment.
Caroline was recently interviewed by one of my favourite podcasters Jess, from The Lively Show. Click here to listen.

What do you think of having a capsule wardrobe for each season? Would you do it?
