I've recently discovered what I've now come to know is not a new concept and is, apparently, all the rage: Capsule Wardrobes.
Have you been on the internet lately? Then you know what I'm talking about.
A Capsule Wardrobe is an intentionally small, seasonal collection of clothing that can be mixed and matched with ease.
That's what I love so much about this concept. No longer am I trying to remember what I need to be able to pull a few outfits together, or simply shopping because I am feeling crappy about myself or my style.
According to my newest blog crush, Caroline from Un-Fancy, who happens to also live in Austin,
"a capsule wardrobe represents more time and energy for what really matters (less time spent deciding what to wear / less time spent shopping / less time doing laundry or caring for clothes) more money for our dreams and helping others (less money spent on clothes that never get worn) and more contentment and happiness."

You've heard it said: Less is more.
And while I tend to agree, I would also add that an important aspect of that for me is that while I may have less, the things, clothing, and time commitments that do make the cut should be carefully curated.
For example, if I'm only going to wear five shirts for the next few months, I want to really LOVE those items. If I don't I tend to consume more and the cycle of collecting more and more continues.
Have you tried out this trend? Would you try it out? If not, why not?
