This is how my mornings have been lately. I get up, have coffee with my amazing husband, read the news, then stress for way too long about what I’m going to wear to work that day. I work in Soho, which if you’re not familiar is probably one of the most fashionable places in the country.
It’s full of people shopping, but also full of really beautiful people going to work. My first day down there I felt very out of place. So every morning I take too much time planning an outfit and stressing over not looking good enough for Soho. I know, it’s ridiculous.
I decided to hop back to an old friend of mine called the Capsule Wardrobe in order to ease up my stressful mornings. The Capsule Wardrobe is a project that forces one to be more minimalistic with their wardrobe throughout three months at a time by only choosing 33 items in your closet. Some of you may be thinking, “33 items? There’s absolutely no way!” But let me tell you from experience, having less options and clearly seeing what you have to work with every day actually gives you the freedom to stop worrying about outfits. It makes insecure women like myself look at their closet with a bit more confidence than before, which will absolutely show when walking down the street as well.
Here are a few of my favorite outfit combinations:
