Capsule Wardrobe: Spring Wardrobe and Closet Organization

Hey everyone! Has this been the longest week ever for anyone else? It's crazy what the time change can do! Today I wanted to share items that I will be including in my spring capsule wardrobe, along with my closet organization.

As I mentioned before in this post, I used three large, clear storage totes with each tote containing clothes for that particular season. I also kept a smaller tote that contains shoes that are off season. The current spring season is hanging in my closet. The number of storage totes used will vary from person to person, but just do whatever works the best for you. Since the weather can be a little unpredictable in the spring in Indiana, I kept a variety of clothes including tees, long sleeve tees, button up tops, lightweight jackets and sweatshirts. I am also including two cardigan sweaters, and one striped sweater that can be dressed up or down. As far as pants go, I kept two pair of denim jeans, one pair of black jeans, and one pair of white pants. I also have two pair of denim shorts and I still plan to add at least one pair of capri pants. I don't wear dress clothes often, so I did not include any in my capsule. I also did not include shoes, handbags or jewelry in the capsule, although I have significantly reduced the amount of each of these that I own. I tried to keep ones that are neutral in color and that pair easily with my outfits. I have a limited amount of comfortable sweatshirts and leggings that I wear often when I am at home that I kept in dresser drawers. The amount of pieces in each capsule will vary from season to season, but the idea is to keep it to a minimum and to make sure that you love every piece.


The idea of a capsule wardrobe is to save money, limit the stress of getting ready and keep clothes that you love to wear. You can read my post on why I chose to implement a capsule wardrobe here. A new capsule starts on the first day of each new season. A couple of weeks prior to the start of the new season is when shopping is done for the upcoming season. A few new pieces are purchased each season, and pieces are purged or donated when they no longer liked or no longer fit properly.


Once the new season starts, I plan to not shop for clothes unless there is something that I really need. (This will be the hard part!) I do have a small wishlist for upcoming seasons and will allow myself to make purchases only if I sell old closet items that I no longer wear. I will let you know what my thoughts are on a capsule wardrobe after this season. So far it feels so good to clean out and minimize!


I hope you all have a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!

  1. I am a huge fan of capsule wardrobes. I do have to incorporate both casual and office wear but just love how it makes dressing simple and also keeps my $$ in check. Looking forward to seeing your posts.
