I have been reading blogs for awhile and in the past year or two, capsule wardrobes have dominated. While it sounds appealing, I am still left in confusion because, more often than not, the capsules displayed are incredibly trendy and of the moment. I can't help but think: aren't you going to look at those ankle boots in a year with disgust?
I have no intention of building a capsule wardrobe, but I have been doing a closet overhaul the past few weekends and have decided to fully commit to a "uniform" of black on bottom. All the color and crazy I can manage on top and skirts + dresses are fair game, but pants are to be denim or black.
I realized that since school started back, I've only been wearing 20% of the pants in my closet: the jeans and the black. So, I'm getting rid of everything else. Unless it's jeans, it's black on bottom. Pants can be varying styles, but only black. This made even more sense when I went over to Pinterest and started looking at the Style board I've been keeping for a few years....notice anything!?!?
Dare I say it, but I'm also bringing this over to the yoga pants. While I have enjoyed the crazy prints and colors, I'm pretty much over it. With all the different jobs and things I've got going, I need to make life as easy as possible.
I got rid of eleven pairs yesterday! I feel so good!
