I have been building capsule wardrobes for nearly four years. A process I now find easy and normal- I can’t quite picture life without one.
For me, it has brought ease, simplicity, creativity, and joy to my life. I think less now about capsule wardrobe rules, numbers, and how to form them, and more about how living with a smaller closet seasonally is just easier.
Less to choose from means less decision fatigue, less stress, less laundry and less money spent on new clothing.
I hope that living with fewer items and wearing them until they completely wear out also puts less in the landfills and I give less money to companies that don’t care about our people or our climate.
I hope that being an outfit repeater lets others know that I care less about what I put on my body and more about what is in my brain and heart.
It is not about perfection, it’s about contentment. It’s about taking care of and loving yourself. Clearing out the stuff and the clutter and the noise in life to make way for joy, love, and freedom.
Clutter smothers, simplicity breathes.
