Capsule Wardrobes

A friend of mine bought 2 Purnaa pocket Tshirts from me a few months ago and she wears them all the time. They are casual, but a step up with that cute contrasting pocket. They go with shorts, pants and skirts. 

She cares about where her clothes come from, and she LOVES telling people about hers. 

I am challenged to ask myself, again, does what I wear reflect who I am and the things I care about most? And how much does that matter to me?

Consider Matilda Kahl, an art director who has worn the same thing everyday for 3 years. She has found that it lessens stress, saves time & money, makes laundry easier, and makes her feel confident, even iconic. 

Consider also President Obama, who says, “You’ll see I wear only gray or blue suits. I’m trying to pare down decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what I’m eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make.”

Picture in your mind Mark Zuckerberg. Same grey Tshirt everyday, and a hoodie in the winter. Picture Steve Jobs. Black turtleneck and jeans. These successful guys might be on to something.

A capsule wardrobe allows for a few more items, but not many! Here are a few links you may have seen floating around social media lately with instructions on how to build your minimalist, capsule wardrobe.
