At the end of the summer of 2013, I decided to do the whole "capsule wardrobe thing." It was starting to become more mainstream, but nothing like it is now. I originally fell in love with the concept after I discovered Into Mind
. I used her approach but customized it to my needs/mindset/brain. You can read my post about how I first simplified my wardrobe here
I transitioned into the summer of 2014 without a plan but still kept my entire wardrobe under 20 items. I am a creature of outfit
habit. I can wear the same thing every day and (if it makes me feel good) not care. When I look back on last summer, however, I can't think of a single item that I really love(d). When we went to Vegas in September, I felt even more frustrated and realized that I lacked focus. I lacked so
much focus that I ended up buying floral Birkenstock-style sandals because I literally didn't have a sandal or summer shoe of any kind. I purchased a lot of trendy crap that leaves me (now) rolling my eyes. Hard.
