I am working on creating my spring capsule wardrobe. A faddy thing for shizzle. But I love the idea of having a limited number of pieces in my closet – fewer decisions, fewer dramas.
Project 333 is the inspiration, but I tried lots of figuring this weekend to see if 33 pieces would work. It sounds like a lot, but it ended up not being enough. I dress fairly casually for work, but I sometimes have to dress up. And I want my weekends to be super casual, wearing stuff I don’t wear at work.
So I am limiting myself to 50. And that is good enough. Especially since the crazytownness of my hormones means I really don’t have “seasonal” clothes. I am always hot (and warm to – badumpdump), so my spring, summer, fall, winter clothes only vary by the accessories I wear.
I will narcistically be documenting some of my favorite pieces and themes. Because I am the least fashion-y person ever, so that makes total sense.
I made 2/50 of my pieces yesterday. These are infinity scarves that are fairly short so they aren’t too long when not double-wrapped. The black one is from some precious Liberty of London fabric I purchased recently. It is dreamy. The blue and white scarf is out of some Cloud 9 voile. It also feels dreamy and was a lot cheaper.
Infinity scarves are very easy to make – so much easier than I expected. And it is great to be able to make them the exact length I want. They do have to be finished with a bit of hand stitching, but after you put the scarf on, you can tell that it is there at all.
