As I grow and change I desire my environment to do the same. I had thought my personal style would change drastically now that I’m a mama, but it actually hasn’t. I think it is more of how I see life and my role in it that has changed the most. The main difference is that the woman in the clothing has evolved tremendously.
This outfit is basic version of ones from the past. It’s a casual uniform of sorts. Whenever I chose basic clothing pieces, I look for unique twists to an ordinary design. I love a great white tee, yet choosing one with a flutter sleeve is much more fun. I also can’t deny my love for denim skirts. The one from last season which is also in my wardrobe was a dark wash and high waisted. This denim skirt is a perfect length and color for the summer.
The beauty of creating a capsule wardrobe is disciplining yourself to be happy with a carefully cultivated wardrobe versus always looking for the next best. It also frees you of the mentality of having nothing to wear and a closet packed to the brim. There is no perfect wardrobe and striving for one is counterproductive.
In a time where there can be so much dissatisfaction, we must realize that we can not find true happiness in materialism. This is one of the greatest lessons that I have learned from creating capsule wardrobes over the years. Shopping used to be my former hobby. I have found other activities that bring more joy and true satisfaction since letting that hobby go.
Each item in this look is from My Spring/Summer 2017 Capsule Wardrobe.
