We had a warmish weekend with one TRULY warm day, and you better believe that I took advantage of it by pulling out my mules and a spring dress! People may not understand that particular mindset of us Northerners, but the truth is… pulling out clothing that isn’t weather appropriate is what gets us through some very dark winter days ha! I usually start out winter with full motivation to dress warmly enough for the elements, but I always lose steam right around this time… it’s inevitable and I accept it.
But speaking of losing steam: I am done with my feeble attempt at a winter capsule wardrobe. I fully learned my lesson this time. Capsule wardrobes are just not for me. They were during a certain season of my life when I had zero bandwidth to think of clothing, but now that I am enjoying my wardrobe once again, I don’t like the limits and rules that come with capsule wardrobes. I know they are a saving grace for lots of people… but they strip the fun out of dressing for me personally.
So I’m quitting ha! Even though I never really did one since my winter progressive capsule ended up being 50+ items in two months… a sure sign that I really am using and enjoying ALL of the clothes in my wardrobe.
BUT one thing I’m bringing with me is the daily outfit posts… but in a slightly different way. Starting tomorrow, I’ll be treating my blog a little like it’s Instagram – I’ll be uploading a daily outfit photo… so not a blog post, just a photo of my outfit and links to what I’m wearing. These photos will not be housed on my main blog feed, they will be accessible from the “daily looks” link in my top menu or from the “daily looks” preview halfway down my home page.
I’ll still be sharing regular blog posts a few times a week so the daily outfit photos are in addition to regular blog content.
I’m excited to go in this direction… it’ll give me the ability to share both of the types of content I want to share with you, and as I move away from using Instagram as much as I have in the past, it will give me the option to keep everything in house.
And you know what? I don’t know if it’s the warmer weather, or that spring is just around the corner, but for the first time in a good long while, I am feeling excited and energized with my wardrobe. It feels good!
Until next time,
