This week I started on my capsule wardrobe. First up? Skirts and dresses.
I started with 14 skirts and my goal was to get down to 8.
I’m happy to report I got to my target number! I am now left with 2 maxi skirts, a pleated navy skirt, a flowy blush skirt, a floral print skirt, 2 tulle skirts, and a pencil skirt.
For dresses, I started with 27 and my goal was to get down to 12.
I almost hit my target by getting down to 13. Because I was pregnant last summer and didn’t get the opportunity to wear many of these dresses, I wanted to hang onto them and reassess after this summer is over. If there are some I don’t wear as often as I though I would, I’ll feel comfortable adding them to the donation bin. I should reference that I also cheated a little with the dresses because I kept 4 additional dresses (so my total is really 17) that are a bit fancier and not for everyday use. Because an opportunity to wear this type of dress only presents itself a couple times a year (like a wedding or holiday party), I will keep these dresses somewhere else and not in my everyday wardrobe.
Check in next week to see how I’ve done with my pants!
