Quitting the Capsule Wardrobe & Life Update
Updated: Apr 16
As much as I love the simplicity of the capsule wardrobe idea, It’s getting to be more of a hassle than a benefit for my lifestyle.
This year I’m trying to do the whole “living simply” thing and going into the school year, I know that keeping track of my capsule and creating such elaborate posts about it will be too time consuming for me.
So you may be thinking - going into the school year? I thought you were out of school!?
And you’re right! I finished my undergrad and for the last year I’ve been working a couple of part-time jobs. And now I’m going back to school this September! I’m doing a masters program in museum studies - and I’m really excited about it! I’m thinking that my background and knowledge of fine arts will help me in understanding museum practices.
I found out a little while ago that I got accepted, but figured I would keep it on the down-low for the time-being - until things really got solidified.
Because I’m starting school back up again, I want to make sure that I don’t lose the more relaxed demeanour I maintained during this last year. While I love school, it definitely brings out the stresser-outer part of me (which isn’t my best side - haha). So I’m trying my best to prepare as much as I can, simplify as much as I can, so that I can *fingers-crossed* stress less.
So while I won’t be documenting my wardrobe every season, I’m still going to maintain a minimal “capsule” wardrobe. I just won’t be so precise about everything. I think this’ll make my life much easier and the change of seasons less stressful. I never really had a great storage solution for out-of-season clothes so now I won’t have to try to think of a creative solution on hiding away chunky sweaters when it heats up. I’m glad I can just embrace my all-year round closet and hey - maybe this will foster more creative outfit ideas!
Tell me how have you been? Any big updates? How are you feeling about capsule wardrobing? Loving it or over it? I’d love to hear from you!
