If you’ve been a blog reader for a while now, you’ve probably heard me talk about capsule wardrobes before. I created my first capsule wardrobe several years ago, and it transformed the way I curated my closet. Personal style, lifestyles, how we need our clothes to function can all change, so today I’m sharing my casual capsule wardrobe.

Do you ever feel like you have nothing to wear when you open your closet even though your closet is full of stuff? Do you look around and feel overwhelmed by your wardrobe choices? What if I told you there is an alternative that will give you a stylish, functional, and stress-free wardrobe, better known as a capsule wardrobe.

A capsule wardrobe is a collection of essential pieces that are flexible enough to create a variety of stylish outfits. The goal here is to be able to mix and match the pieces in your casual capsule wardrobe, so you can easily create a wardrobe that will save you time and energy. Say goodbye to decision fatigue every time you get dressed. I’m going to walk you though what to include, how to create outfits, and how to make the most of a casual capsule wardrobe.
