Closet Chronicles: Spring Capsule

I’ve done it. I’ve finally completed my first successful Seasonal Capsule Wardrobe. I’m not gonna hide it. This was a hard task. And yes, I am aware that this post is picture heavy. Mostly because I didn’t want to leave anything out. But also because I wanted you all to see a real picture of what my Spring Capsule Wardrobe looks like.

I’ve struggled with wanting a to have seasonal capsule wardrobes for a couple of years. As you’ve all read about multiple times, in my many posts about it. But I finally think I figured it out. The key is getting basics that you can bring with you to each season. I have quite a few of those things now. So it can only get easier from here.

My final wardrobe ended up with 54 pieces. But I suspect its because 14 of those are shoes. Also, I have a lot of pieces that can be worn to work as well once we are back to the office. Below I have posted pics of my finalized Spring Capsule Wardrobe. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions about what anything is and where I got it.

I needed a few long sleeve Shirts for both work and play.
A couple short sleeve baby dolls, a tunic and a couple blouses I can also wear to work.
Everyone needs some basic tees that can be dressed up or dressed down.
There’s nothing wrong with having a few tanks as well.
A cute dress, and a couple of buttoned shirts are great for layering.
CARDIGANS! Seriously, I love these ones. They are great for layering.
A jean jacket is a must, and vests are still in style for spring in Vermont.
So I may have too many pairs of pants. But I require options.
I will never cut back on shoe options. It’s simply not going to happen.

I don’t know if you can tell in these pictures what my favorite stores are. But in laying everything out to take pictures I came to the following conclusion: I clearly have favorite stores, and everything in my Spring Capsule came from these stores (minus 3 items that came from Walmart).

In no particular order they are:

  • Old Navy
  • JC Penny
  • Khols
  • Marshalls
  • Maurices
  • Goodwill
  • Amazon.com

A few more observations:

  • LC Lauren Conrad Skinny Crops are clearly my favorite jean.
  • A.N.A Skinny Ankles are my favorite for colored jeans.
  • I have am clearly in love with the Luxe Tanks from Old Navy.
  • My favorite cardigan is the 3/4 Sleeve Slouchy Pocket from Maurices.
  • I clearly have a shoe addiction.
