Few experiences give me the same sense of calm satisfaction as dialing back to the pure essentials. I've experimented (and continue to experiment) with this concept in varying areas of my life, including the foods I eat, spurts of water-only hair washing, and living without internet or a dishwasher.
So.. inspired by Caroline's journey from Unfancy, I've decided to embrace the lifestyle of living with a capsule wardrobe. What's a capsule wardrobe, you ask? It basically means paring down to a seemingly small, but surprisingly versatile, number of clothing items that truly reflect the aesthetic you want to portray.
And what better time to try such an experiment than SPRING.
I've crawled out of my wintery cave, hiking my oversized sweatpants as I step away from the furnace, enticed by the year's first inklings of warmth-giving sunshine. The grass has a scent again, and I've already slept one night with open windows, lulled by the night's breeze and pattering rain.
Yep, spring fever has hit.
I was more than willing to toss unwanted garments in a to-donate box, step back, and sigh relief at the sight of s p a c e between the clothes in my closet.
This is outfit #1. I'm excited to see where this little experiment goes. :)
