Do you ever struggle with knowing what you are going to wear for the day?
Do you stand in front of your closet for 5 minutes and pull out one item after another, and you feel frustrated that nothing is matching?
Do you long for variety in your wardrobe, yet you want to keep things simple?
I’ve been working on creating more of a capsule wardrobe for spring and summer, while still keeping all my fun extra items, like floral dresses and lace skirts.
Basically I just want a capsule wardrobe for the weekday, something I can cycle through and create outfits that fit, look nice, and can coordinate together.
I’ve been wearing the long stretch denim skirt, the short stretch denim skirt and the Rainbow denim skirt quite often, and alternating tops with them.
Now that it’s warming up I’m wearing sandals with them, my Converse shoes, and my Toms slip ons.
Last night I grabbed two basic solid color shirts when we were out shopping to add to my weekday collection. I’m so excited about them, because I picked two colors that will go with everything! A lovely bright mint green and a deep lavender color. I have scarves that will match them, flexi clips and jewelry!
I really love capsule wardrobes when people are super creative about changing up their outfits, and mixing up the items in the capsule wardrobe. I have a resource that will help you do this!
I’ve gone through a GYPO challenge before, which stands for Get Your Pretty On. If you struggle with knowing how to put outfits together, these challenges are fantastic!
I was really excited to see that the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle included a Stay At Home Mom Casual Wardrobe Basic Builder in this year’s bundle! This downloadable resource offers cute outfits that are all put together, from shoes, jewelry and clothes, and gives you a list of what you need to have for this capsule wardrobe.
Now not everything on the list is what you might like. But it’s so easy to substitute items and still pull it off!
For example, 4 pairs of jeans are required. If you don’t want to wear jeans, just substitute it out with a few denim skirts or a white skirt in place of the white jeans!
A chambray dress is on the list but I don’t like the one they have. Instead I would pick a Chambray dress from eShakti, or look at local thrift stores.
I like this dress, you can add sleeves to it on their website and even customize the length!
With just a few changes this guide could be a great way to get you used to a capsule wardrobe!
This guide is normally $29 if you purchased it from the GYPO website. But for just one dollar more you can purchase the entire Ultimate Homemaking Bundle for $29.97 and receive 106 resources and some really awesome physical bonuses!
Don’t forget about the free flex clip, or the free $10 gift certificate to Deborah & Co. you will get if you order the Homemaking Bundle through me! You could use the $10 to put towards getting a new denim skirt to use for this challenge! Wahoo!
If you don’t like the idea of the wardrobe challenge, at the very least get this bundle for the Temper Toolkit course by Lisa-Jo Baker (it’s amazing!), or the Nester’s Cozy Minimalist course! Both of these are worth the price of the bundle alone, or more!
