It’s funny to me that people know me as a minimalist or the capsule wardrobe girl. It’s funny because a few years ago my closet was full of things I hated and I could never find anything to wear. I concentrated on buying complicated pieces with lots of patterns and colors and I didn’t have any basics. I felt t-shirts would make me look like I was not trying enough or it wasn’t a fashion staple. Even though I might seem I have a wardrobe closet, I don’t go by a specific number of items. Let’s call it an open capsule, where I always analyze what I already have versus what I need and something that I would love to add to my closet. Many times we are drawn to pieces that already look like things we already have in our closet. It’s the biggest loop in fashion. We love mustard dresses, we end up with five mustard dresses. I have learned to really stop myself from this and it is so much easier now because I know absolutely everything that’s in my closet! Now my closet is full of staples and timeless pieces that I might have consider boring or not fashionable a few years ago.
To be honest, I have never loved they way I dressed as much as I do now! I concentrate on buying timeless pieces that can be paired with more than two or three items and can be worn through seasons as well. Quality is important to me and buying from ethical sustainable companies is a goal right now. All that minimizes the places I buy from, making it easier to not be tempted to buy to be honest.
One of the best places to find all of these qualities is Tradlands! They offer timeless, essential pieces that you can dress up or down and will last a lifetime. Tradlands simple pieces can add more outfit equations to your closet throughout every season. The Everyday Chambray Box Top is one of those staple pieces I’ve been looking to add to my closet for so long! The oversized fit and material are my favorite. Perfect for summer or colder weather with a cardigan on top.
My closet is still in an ongoing process, but I sure love my clothes way more that before!
Have a great weekend!
