You know that feeling of trying to get ready, hating everything you put on, and then stressing because you have a closet full of clothes and “nothing to wear”?
Okay, well I know why that is AND how to fix your problem so you never have to have that feeling again! The answer? Building a capsule wardrobe!
The reason why you find yourself in that conundrum is because you don’t have elevated basics you love.
The purpose of a capsule wardrobe is to build your closet to have basics that you love that can be styled many different ways for many different occasions.
Building a capsule wardrobe seriously changed my life. I spend WAY less money on clothes, can wear the same pieces I love for multiple occasions in many different ways, and I never stress about what to wear.
If you build a capsule wardrobe, you'll have a more minimal closet, endless outfit combinations that work & love everything you own.
What is a capsule wardrobe?
A capsule wardrobe is a variety of wardrobe staples that can be mixed and matched to create endless outfit options!
I created this blog post to help you create a capsule wardrobe of your own. I've included affordable basics that I love that can be worn and styled to create endless outfit combinations!

For fall, you want pieces you can layer. A neutral pallet of white, beige, tan, and black gives you the ability to mix and match with pants and skirts for countless outfit options!

The foundation of a fall wardrobe is the denim. If there is one piece to splurge on, it's a good pair of denim. These are going to be the foundation of your wardrobe for the next 6-9 months--so you want pairs you can grab that are great quality, versatile, and flattering.

A great way to make each capsule outfit have their own unique flair is by layering. Jackets, cardigans, and chic coats are the best way to do this!

Boots and jeans are the two things I recommend splurging on. Remember, these are not trendy pieces that you wear once and never reach for again. These are the foundation of your wardrobe. And you want those pieces to be high-quality.
I have boots that I’ve been wearing for 5+ years because I paid $150-250 for them 5 years ago. They’re an investment, BUT they're worth it. Look at it from a cost-per-wear perspective.
You want to make sure you're getting a quality pair that isn’t going to break, and that you can grab every day.
