Mindy is the youngest of my three sisters, and by far the youngest participant in this blog challenge. 🙂 She writes:
Fall 2015 has been my very first capsule, and I am L O V I N G the concept, although I haven’t gotten picky and down to the details on it. One of my favorite parts about capsule is how it makes me be intentional about what I purchase, and even about what I wear. I tend to get stuck on a track, wearing only a few of my very favorite things over and over until I am tired of them, and I’m sure everyone that sees me is too.
At first when my sisters got started with capsule wardrobe, I was intrigued, but certain that it wouldn’t work for me right now. But Melanie was so excited about it, and so sure that I would love it, that I decided to actually try it.
I love so many things about capsule, but my absolute favorite part is the confidence-builder that it has been for me. I care about looking good, and when I don’t feel like I look good, that pretty much puts a damper on my entire day. Part of it I’m sure is that I care way too much about what other people think of me, but I think that as women, we want to look good, and need to be able to feel good about ourselves. When I love every piece hanging in my closet, it is so much easier for me to put on an outfit, look in the mirror, and actually like what I see.
I L O V E fall. Everything about it. Pretty leaves, coffee, bonfires, blankets, pumpkin everything, hayrides, hoodies…it’s just wonderful.
Plaid will always be one of my go-to pieces in fall. So cozy, comfortable, and comforting! And I love how many ways you can wear it. Scarf, cardigan with cuffed sleeves, open over another shirt, pull-over sweater over it, or just by itself!
Another one of my favorites this season has been my chambray button-down. If you don’t have one of these, go buy one. Such a simple, versatile piece! If I could wear mine every day, I would. This is the first piece that I applied the capsule method of paying a bit more for something that I absolutely love, and it hasn’t disappointed! This has been such a fun piece for me, as I can dress it up or down, depending on the occasion.
Needless to say, I am loving capsule wardrobe so far, and to all the skeptics, I would definitely say give it a try! The process itself is so fun, and you will not regret it! I can’t wait to start on my winter capsule!
Mindy, I’m so proud of the changes you’ve made and what a fabulous job you’ve done of implementing the capsule concept at the ripe old age of fifteen. You’re amazing!
