Hey there! How was your weekend?
Hubby went out of town this weekend, so I planned the quietest weekend ever. I just holed up at home, only getting out a couple of times. Dang, it was nice.
Right now I’m in my introverted home body phase. So the quiet of the weekend was my happy place. See, the first half of the year I’m usually an introverted home body. Then the last half, I go a little wild, itching for excitement and adventure.
I kind of like being both — more introverted some days and more extroverted other days. There’s a lot of tension in it — two opposing ideas living in one human being — but also a lot of possibility.
I’m learning to accept the tension, as awkward as it feels.
In other news, it’s been warmer the past few days and that’s got me thinking about spring and my spring capsule wardrobe. The more I think about it, the more I am way into this idea of having just two capsule wardrobes — a warm weather capsule and a cold weather capsule.
It was good for me to have four capsules my first year because:
(a) It relieved the pressure of having to create the perfect wardrobe. I knew I could live with wardrobe mistakes for a little while + get a chance to redo it in three months.
(b) And detaching myself from shopping was a tricky process. It was easier for me to stick with it if I knew I could shop again in just three months.
But now, I feel like I’ve got my style nailed down and I’m actually ready for less shopping + planning. So, I’m thinking two capsules a year sounds awesome. I’m still not sure how many pieces I’ll include in each one — working on a realistic number right now.
Those of you doing two capsules a year — got any ideas to share + any secrets to make it successful? I’m all ears.
