Time for another installment of my capsule wardrobe fashion inspiration series!  I decided a couple of months ago now to create some sample minimalist wardrobes for inspirational purposes, because I think there is a lot of talk about "capsule wardrobes" without anyone really knowing what that looks like, besides, you know, "small."  If you haven't already, be sure to check out my previous posts in this series:

A quick summary for anybody new:

I'm a big fan of minimalism and capsule wardrobes.  I did a series a while back about how to create a capsule that works for you and your own specific environment / fashion sense / day-to-day needs, and it ended up being quite popular... so much so that I've been working on turning it into an ebook.  

(*squeeeeeeeeeeeee!!*  I'm so excited!!  And I can't WAIT for it to be done, haha!)  

It is due out on kindle really soon, so, if you are looking for a logical, step-by-step "How to Create a Capsule Wardrobe" with instructions and tips on figuring out your own personal style and curating a happy, confident closet, stay posted!!

If you're scratching your head and wondering what on earth is "minimalism" and why is it appealing, basically... I find it easier to keep focused on the things that are important to me when I'm less distracted by "stuff"... whether it's extra stuff I have to dust and organize, or so many items of clothing crowded into my closet that I can't easily decide what to wear.  I choose what stays in my house very deliberately, based on the value it holds for me or the function it serves for me.  It's as simple as that!  

Today's style sampler is what I'm calling 
"Uptown Chic -- Business Casual for the Colorful Soul."

  1. Minimalist is my fave. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. ;)

  2. I am not so worried about a capsule wardrobe for my everyday life, but am really trying to learn to travel with one carry one bag, which requires a capsule of multi-use items. I like these mix and match items.

  3. Get the book. It is awesome! Besides getting great tips, you'll have so much fun! (shameless plug) ;)

  4. I would love to clear out my cluttered closet to a few items that could be mixed to make different outfits. I would probably have to get rid of all of it and start over. LOL Being a minimalism sounds like it would make life so much easier.


I love to connect with new friends online! Please share your thoughts with me! :)
