Winter Capsule Wardrobe is Moving Out!

Wow, spring is already here you guys! It's time to say good-bye to my winter capsule and hello to spring.

Capsule Wardrobe Planning: Spring is Here

I still haven't figured out the best way to take pictures of my daily outfits, and I never took a picture of every single item. I really did try to take pictures daily, but this is how they usually turned out:

 I'm not a fashion blogger and never will be. And that's ok! 

But here's the rundown. My day-to-day work wardrobe is incredibly boring. Black pants, rotating sweaters, and black heels. Nothing special. However, I do get to wear jeans twice a week to the office. I still have to keep it professional, though. Here's my attempt at an outfit layout:

Gray Knit Cardigan, Jeans, Boots
Red Sparkle Sweater, Jeans, Boots

See, not a fashion blogger.

But basically I lived in skinny jeans, black boots, and some variation of a shirt and sweater! I rotated out a few necklaces and earrings, heels or flats instead of boots, and threw in the occasional dress for a change of pace.

And I loved it! It's pretty much the same items I wore the year before, but it was so much easier to choose what to wear without all the other clothes crowding them out. My closet (well, my side of it anyway) stayed very clean and streamlined, and it was wonderful.

I have to confess that I did buy a few things though. I purchased two pairs of Seven jeans, a pair of Sam Edelman heels, ankle boots, and a North Face jacket. I regret nothing, because I purchased everything except the jacket from ThredUp where I had store credit, and I purchased the jacket off a garage sale group on Facebook. The jacket and the ankle boots are the only things that won't roll over into my spring wardrobe, and the jacket came in super handy in NYC so I consider it money well spent!

This weekend I spent some time rotating out the winter items and bringing in spring. I'll keep a few winter items handy because you never know when those cold temps will make a comeback. But I'm really hoping it's all 70 degrees and sunny from here on out :)

Did you try a capsule wardrobe this winter? Or are you thinking about trying one this spring? Tell me all about it!
