{winter capsule wardrobe}

i finally decided to get it together for winter and do a capsule wardrobe! i've been pairing down my closet for awhile, giving things to friends or goodwill, but yesterday & today i decided on my capsule wardrobe for winter!

i'm inspired by the 10 item wardrobe of the author of the madame chic books {}, where she has 10 core pieces she wears each season, plus tshirts, cardigans, and outer capsule wardrobe is bigger than that but still a scaled down and manageable number for 60 is the magic number ;)

here's how it's broken down...

12 skirts//2 long, 2 a-line, and 8 pencil skirts

12 pants//ruffle pants, pixie pants, fluid ankle pants, jeans, cords, and leggings

8 dresses

28 blouses//includes sweaters & tunics

my goal for winter {december, january, february} is to wear only these pieces, mixing and matching in all sorts of exciting ways ;)
i also have tanks, cardigans, and outer wear that i will be wearing too.
it makes me realize how little clothing we really NEED and how much is completely unnecessary!

i plan on posting capsule outfits weekly, so stay tuned!


  1. You have some great pieces! That is so exciting--can't wait to see all your outfits. I've been selecting my pieces too. I'm only down to about to keep eliminating. I'll send you pictures when I finish!

  2. Great capsule! Some nice variety too - can't wait to see what you put together!
