My Spring 2015 Capsule Wardrobe

Capsule Wardrobe - "Simple definition? It’s a mini wardrobe made up of really versatile pieces that you totally LOVE to wear. For Unfancy purposes, it’s a 37 piece wardrobe that includes tops, bottoms, dresses, outerwear, and shoes." - Caroline @ Un-Fancy

Last week I wrote about why I'm doing a capsule wardrobe. Feel free to hit that up if you missed it.

 >> I currently have 32 pieces. I plan to purchase 5 more: chambray button up (my old one had an unfortunate run in with some bleach recently #laundryfail), strappy brown flats, perhaps a new dress for Lillian's christening, another short sleeved top, and I already ordered this Everlane white tee. And I may need these fringe boots because they have a lower heel than the boots pictured above and would be more comfy and absurdly cute with everything. TBD.

>> I did not include undergarments, lounge wear, or athletic wear. 

>> I've always worn a lot of neutrals. (My mom hates it.) I rely on accessories and nail polish to provide pops of color.

>> Trying on clothes with this new, curvier body was different and fun.

>> A lot of the pieces in my closet are too small for me at the moment. However, only 8 of the above items are post-baby purchases. Once I actually went through my wardrobe piece by piece, I found a fair amount of separates that still fit.

>> I am nursing, therefore lightning fast boob access is a must. The 4 dresses above are the only ones in my entire closet that meet that criteria. Therefore they won.

>> It would appear that I mostly wear Gap and Target.

>> I don't know if I could do this if I still worked in a big office 5 days a week. This is totally doable since these days I spend most of my time in ratty leggings and a tank and never leave the house.

>> I'm worried that I have too many sweaters/jackets. But I'm having a hard time deciding which one to eliminate.

Ok people, I purchased a cheap tripod and am going to attempt this whole regular outfit posts thing. I apologize in advance.

I really am attempting to limit my closet, but shopping now that I have (most of) my body back is so FUN! Also, it looks like you have some solid choices in your 30+ items! Well done!

So wait - explain this... you are using these 37 pieces to make your wardrobe and that's it? I should start taking notes because I am going to be moving and will need to limit what I can pack and wear for a few months!
