Capsule Wardrobe: One Month Done!

The end of June arrived and I thought it would be nice to share my capsule wardrobe ups and downs of this  month with you…We gonna have a look at my most and least worn item and talk about the struggles and the good times, so let´s do this!

My most worn item:

Has to be my white jeans. I absolutely love them! The cut and the length is just perfect and the fabric is super comfy as well. It´s such an easy to style piece, the colour goes with everything and the white makes any outfit look so summery! ( You can see more photos from this outfit here )

My least worn item:

My pineapple t-shirt! I only brought it into my capsule, because I was lacking some tops and maybe that wasn’t such a good choice…I feel like it´s not really my style anymore ( I had it for quite a while ). But I am gonna try to wear it a few times next month and see if I can make it work with some accessories….we will see 🙂

My favourite outfit:

I posted four outfits on the blog this month and to pick a fave wasn’t an easy task! I liked all of them, but this one I loved the most. Maybe because it so unusual for me 🙂 Which one is your favourite?

I also shared a lot of daily outfits on Instagram, so make sure you follow me…

Some Struggle:

I am going to be totally honest with you here…one time I nearly cheated! So if you don´t know this, for me having a capsule means no clothes shopping until the new season…but I was browsing some online shops ( which was a pretty bad idea! ) and saw this really cute fringe booties two weeks ago and I ordered them. I felt so bad for doing it, but I still did. I sent them back in the end, so that was only a near-cheat-situation. I am only human and I make mistakes, but this is what learning is all about, right?! Making mistakes and learning something from them 🙂

It also is my birthday tomorrow ( I´m turning 25! ) and as long as I can remember I ALWAYS went shopping with the money I got that day and spent some ( or most of it ) on new clothes. This year I´m not going to do that and I feel a little scared about this fact, but also think it´s the right thing to do….Instead I want treat myself  to new glasses. I have really bad vision and I need some prescription sunnies for summer, so this is a really useful gift to myself 🙂

Why it feels good:

I already can feel so much positiv difference in my mental health after only one month of the capsule wardrobe experiment! Before I started living on a capsule, I was constantly checking Asos, H&M and so on for new arrivals and thinking about new pieces I really “needed”. That made me feel so restless and ungrateful for all the beautiful clothes I already owned! But since I stopped virtual window shopping, I got SO much more inner calmness, it feels amazing, I can tell you! I have more time now for things I love, like reading or blogging or playing with my cats. I feel like I cured myself from a bad and kind of harmful addiction, which is probably true…I can´t wait to see even more progress in the future!

I already feel like this journey is a great success and that the good outweighs the bad by far…so grateful for you guys following along, I really feel like we can learn so much from each other! 🙂 Oh and because I truly enjoyed doing an capsule outfit every Sunday this month and you guys seem to love it as well, I am going to do that in July again! So check back this Sunday for a new outfit…

 

I hope you enjoyed hearing a bit more about my first month with a capsule! What did you learn this month?

I wish you the best day ever!
