This is exciting! The last few weeks I’ve showed you my first experiences with creating a capsule wardrobe and I’m finally ready to share my winter wardrobe with you. After the introduction I told you about my inspiration, my final color scheme and my big clean out and inventory.
In this post I will talk about my budget, what I eventually ended up with and my first experiences. So let’s take a look!
Whoops twee weeks without blogging! However, I have a big announcement that vouch for my whereabouts these two weeks. Namely, I am officially graduated from university! Besides that, I started working part-time at the Centraal Museum again, and Iâ€™m also helping with the opening of the Miffy museum. Lotâ€™s of things going on!
February has already started so letâ€™s reflect on January first, and then hop on to the theme of February, which is laying a foundation. Michiel and I just moved into our new place and we have to get used to seeing each other every day and create a routine together. I also really hope to lay the foundation of my financial situation this month (finding a job). It feels a bit like I entered a new life in 2016, and I canâ€™t wait to see how itâ€™s going to be.
Now it is time for the inventory! As I mentioned in the introduction of the capsule wardrobe, I already went through all my clothes when I was caught up in the Marie Kondo spell of decluttering. And although Marie Kondo advices to keep all your clothes in your closet (to see if it still sparks joy), I have now tucked away my summer clothes. After that I went through every piece to find out if I really liked it. I came down to 20 pieces and 5 pair of shoes. To find out which pieces I still need in my winter capsule, I decided to use proportions.
But first, lets take a look at my current wardrobe:
A few years ago my sister and I gave my mom a color consultation for her birthday, and we decided to get one as well. It was a nice experience and my mom really enjoyed it. We all got a little book with our colors. Iâ€™m not as strict as my mom (she barely wants to shop if she does not have her book with her) but I do find myself leaning towards â€˜my colorsâ€™.
