Spring 2016 Capsule Wardrobe

This past Friday marked three months since I started my winter capsule wardrobe.  This means that I switched things up and moved on to my spring capsule.  Very excitedly I boxed up my arctic winter gear, thrilled to move into a milder season.  I can handle Spring so much better and I’m excited for the cold spell to break!  Now I hope it won't rain all April and May or I might be in trouble.

This is my third capsule and I’m really happy with how it has been going with capsule dressing… but I haven’t found wardrobe peace.  I hope I will, but I suppose building a wardrobe over time will take dedication and time.

“LESS IS MORE.” 
[MORE OR LESS]


Don't be fooled to by this photo.  It's not summer-y yet.  It's 54 degrees in the sun and I'm wearing thermo leggings to keep warm ;)









Here is a list of the items I purchased to re-fresh my wardrobe.
- dark blue pattered blouse
- white/navy striped long sleeve shirt 
- navy blue cardigan
- long navy blue skirt
- black/brown pointed toe flats
- black chunky heel sandals
(I will mark these new items with a *)


And here is a list of the items I selected for the spring capsule:

33 - sunglasses

That's it, ... all 33 pieces I have for the next three months.  As usual, I will update how it goes this time around.  So far, I'm quite angry that some of my clothes fit very tight since I gained 15 pounds over the last two months on the crazy asthma medication that made me very ill and ... well, fat.  No more medicines for me.  I hope I will feel better soon and I'm also hoping that I will shrink back to my normal size so that I can feel more comfortable.  Here are links to my previous capsule posts:
