It has been a while since I last wrote – summer was busy and fun and before we knew it – we went back to work again and everyday life, filled with things to do.
Earlier this year I decided to make a work capsule wardrobe. Not because there’s a dress code where I work (I’m a teacher), but simply because I don’t want to spend time thinking about what to wear and as a step towards simplifying life and minimising “mental noise”.
I did this because I want to be able to find clothes for my work days which:
- Are comfortable
- Which I feel that I look ok in (representable – haha)
- Which are easy to mix with each other
As a basis in my work capsule wardrobe I have:
- Slacks – for more formal occasions (black and blue)
- Jeans (black and blue)
- Shirts (white, light blue, dark blue)
- T-shirts (lots of white and a few black)
- Cardigans (black, blue, grey, dark grey and pink)
Doing this, I spend less time on picking out what to wear and I don’t need to “worry about” this aspect of my life. In addition, I do sometimes “go wild” and put on a skirt or dress, but this is only when I feel an urge to wear something different. Hahaha. I must add that most of my shirts are “easy to iron” shirts, so I don’t bother ironing most of them;)
I have thought about setting up a capsule wardrobe for all my clothes, but I am not sure if I am ready to take that step yet 😛
Do you have a capsule wardrobe? Or have you considered organising one?
