2015 Fall Capsule Wardrobe

Well this is a little later than I would normally be posting my fall capsule wardrobe, but that’s because it took until November for Sacramento to even come close to cooling down enough to actually consider it Fall.  Sheesh.  Hallelujah for cool weather!

Normally this would be Oct-Dec’s capsule, but I was literally still wearing sun dresses and flip flops in October, so this will likely be Nov into January’s capsule.

This capsule is a tad larger than some of my other ones – 52 items, NOT including boots and scarves or heavier outerwear.

Here’s the breakdown of items:

10 Shirts

6 Skirts

5 Pair Leggings

1 Pair Jeans

14 Dresses

16 Jackets/Sweaters

And here are the pictures of the items along with where they came from. An * indicates this item is new for this season. The rest are rolled over from previous seasons.

Summer 2015 Capsule Wardrobe

As predicted, my summer wardrobe doesn’t look a whole lot different than my spring one did. I did the“Kon-Mari Method" all my clothes before our summer clothing swap and also per her advice, I do hang all of my clothes in the closet now, I just separate out my capsule from the rest. I got rid of some pieces, added a couple new dresses, skirts and shirts. Including shoes, Summer came out to 47 pieces. I’m not much of a shoe gal, so I figured I’d include shoes this time around. As usual, no workout/Pjs/undergarments. Here’s the breakdown of the 47:

•    8 tops
•    8 bottoms (6 skirts, 2 pair shorts)
•    10 layering tops/sweaters
•    15 dresses
•    6 pairs of shoes

I’m still finding this exercise great to make my wardrobe simpler and it easier to get ready in the morning. I’m better able to separate out different types of clothes and I still hang my hangers backwards so that I can see what I actually wore during the 3 months. I have a feeling a few things may have to be retired after this summer since they haven’t gotten much wear over this last year. 

So here it is, my Summer July/August/September capsule wardrobe:


 Target | Ross | Salt & Pepper Tees | Target | Ross | Clothing Swap | Bella Materna | Ross

Layering Tops/Sweaters:
