Hello everyone! I recently changed over my capsule wardrobe from Summer to Autumn (I live in Australia by the way…). I found this changeover quite challenging. Leading up to the changeover in Sydney we had had a few weeks in a row of 21/22 degrees Celsius to 29/30 degrees Celsius. But I knew that the following weekend I was going to the Blue Mountains for a music festival which is always freezing cold so I had to do this changeover and balance the shorts and shirts with jeans and coats.
So this is what I ended up with. I actually ended up with the same number as I had before which is 53. It’s still a bit more than I would like, but due to the crazy weather happening I couldn’t really cut down. I still have my normal capsule and then my work capsule. I didn’t end up changing anything in my work capsule. It was working for me so I didn’t want to mess with it.
There were quite a few changes to my normal capsule wardrobe. Out went two pairs of sandals and in went two pairs of boots and my new Nike Roshes.
Two old t-shirts went from my capsule to my work out section to wear them out. There was a pair of shorts and a dress that I did not wear at all in the six weeks of my Summer capsule so they are going to charity.
A few other tops, cardigans and dresses went out and are going into storage.
Then out of storage and into my capsule came two long sleeve tops, a cardigan, a jumper, two dresses, my black jeans and two coats.
I found the process quite challenging but also satisfying. It was fun bringing items out of storage. It was like buying new clothes without spending any money! So I hope you enjoyed this changeover. Let me know in the comments below your thoughts on the capsule wardrobe concept.
Thanks for reading, Christina xo
