I’m not a minimalist, really; but in the last year, my wardrobe has changed pretty dramatically. I went from a closet full of things I didn’t enjoy wearing, to a closet full of versatile mix-and-match pieces that I love. I discovered that I really like to wear layers, so I have a small selection of plain t-shirts with various sleeve lengths, and a larger selection of sweaters, cardigans, vests, and lace tops to wear over the tshirts. I have a moderate number of skirts. Here is a picture of the little capsule wardrobe I put together for a 5-day trip out of town to my mom’s: 24 possible outfits, 14 separate pieces.


Thanks for allowing us this little peek, Jessica! I love the point you brought out that it’s not necessary to limit yourself to a certain number of pieces; the point is to invest in clothes that fit your body and your style and that you can wear and feel good in.
