Spring weather is in the air, so I decided today was the day to pull together a spring wardrobe capsule!  If you have ever thought of trying a wardrobe capsule of your own, click [HERE] for my easy 5 step process to get ya on your way.  Capsules solve the problem of standing in an overstuffed closet while muttering, “I have nothing to wear!”  Been there.  😉  They also help us retrain our mind when it comes to how we spend, why we shop and how long it takes us to get dressed in the morning.  Curating a small seasonal wardrobe full of only the pieces you love the most, feel the most beautiful while wearing and that all coordinate together creates simpler mornings, no-stress outfits and a more confident YOU…because you know that no matter what you choose to wear that day, you already know you love it and feel beautiful in it!  BOOM!

This spring, I’m feeling a mixture of neutrals layered with mustard yellow, soft pinks and stripes!  Who said mustard yellow was only for fall? Here is a sample capsule wardrobe from my own closet (although it might change up here and there as we go – I don’t subscribe to the super strict, legalistic wardrobe capsule mindset, so I will add or subtract a handful of pieces throughout the season, I’m sure!).  Notice the repetition of similar colors and patterns, and see how many pieces can be combined and combined again to create numerous outfits from only 35 pieces!  By streamlining our closets, we can focus on the looks that truly represent US: our vibe, our lifestyle, our confidence…rather than complaining about an overstuffed closet and an UNDERstuffed wallet. 😉

Keep in mind that it’s not about the exact number of items to have in your capsule, nor is it about hard and fast rules about NEVER shopping and ONLY buying certain times of the year.  The entire point is to create new, healthier habits that will at first benefit our closets and wallets…and then will start to benefit our self-confidence and our purpose.  Clothes are not the main thing.  But…they are a thing, so why not try a different way of approaching spending, shopping and getting dressed each day!


NOTE: I’ve indicated size and if one of my items is older and have thus shopped a similar piece for ya.  These are affiliate links, too, btw.  Just click picture of item below!

There you have it, friends!
Hope seeing a capsule process here on the blog is helpful to you if you’ve been considering trying one out for yourself, and just remember – don’t get caught up in the all the rules you can find online.  Just go into it with an open mind and see where the process can take you and your closet!

    Thank you for a GREAT post and IG story on building a capsule, so incredibly helpful! By chance will you also be showing which pieces of clothing are worn together or are you saying that anything mixes & matches with each other. You just use choose from the “35 items” for instance that you showed and they’ll always all go together? Thank you 🙂

    Great post! Although you talked about how the point isn’t necessarily to get rid of stuff, I purged quite a bit after watching your stories and starting my own capsule today!

    Always love your style so much!! So much inspiration! What about the white striped dress?

  4. Dory Leming says:

    Weird question, do you wear socks with your converse? If so which ones? I don’t like my socks peaking through. Thanks!!

    P.s. your style is fabulous!

    Do you have a link for the sweater de-piller you had shown in your stories awhile back. I have the madewell cardigan and I LOVE it.. so soft but it has pulled terribly to the point where I don’t even want to wear it in public.

    I absolutely love this color palette. In fact, I just realized that it’s the color palette for my home. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your style with us, Erin. I haven’t tried the capsule wardrobe yet, but I may give it a try this spring. I absolutely hate choosing my outfit for the day, so I usually end up in tee shirts and yoga pants.

    Maybe this could help change that.
