I open my closet. I close it. Open. Close. I check my dirty laundry basket. Nothing. I check the « to iron pile » – nothing there.
Why do I have always nothing to wear…? Am I cursed…?
Only a few days ago I have bought a new pair of jeans and a cozy sweater. And still, nothing makes any sense. Why does my fiancé need only 5 minutes to get ready, whereas I am always stuck, digging through a pile of clothes?
WHY DO WE HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR: SIMPLE REASONS
I am not a fashion-obsessed person. I rather prefer to look for a reasonable way of enjoying shopping and I moderately follow trends. I always look for a balance between classical style and new trends. And this might be one of my big problems…
I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR BECAUSE I MIX TRENDS TOO MUCH
When we look what fashion magazines propose right now, we see high waist jeans and many crop tops to go with them. So I go shopping and buy high waisted jeans because I want something new and fresh. I come back home…. and my problems begin to start. All my tops are too long and look stupid when paired with the new jeans. I need to come back to the shop and buy a full outfit. If I don’t, I will still have nothing to wear….
At the same time, I like my « old » tops, so I feel forced to spend money on things I already have.
Moreover, when it comes to trousers, women need to adjust them to many different shoes. High heels, boots, ballerinas – I imagine you don’t only have one pair of trousers matching one pair of shoes, right? It’s infuriating when I look at my finance’s « outfits ». He can wear all his trousers with all his shoes, all trousers with all the tops, sweaters and shirts. And me – never.
I try always to buy skinny jeans, so it’s easier to adapt. But, still I struggle….
I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR BECAUSE I MIX TOO MANY COLOR PALETTES
I like pale pink, red, I look good in a light brown color. But they are not friends nor I can wear them together. During the winter I try to stick with light grey-pale pink and black palettes, during summer I play with black and white outfits. When we have too many colors in our wardrobe, it can cause chaos and problems with creating outfits.
Brown shoes and black bag? Pink coat and brown shoes? Not so much…
This is the reason why, when I was creating my first summer boho capsule wardrobe, I have decided to stick only to few colors. Black, white and red. They all go together and give me the flexibility to mix and match.
MY FIRST CAPSULE WARDROBE: BOHO SUMMER STYLE
In November, a few weeks before going to Mexico, I have decided that I am tired of my summer-messy-wardrobe. I couldn’t match my outfits, I hated half of my clothes, another half I was bored of…
So I made a plan of creating a perfect summer boho capsule wardrobe. And you know what? For the first time in my life I had no problems dressing up in the morning.
I spent some time on Asos website, selected about 40 items (all on sale, yeah!) Later at home I made a strict selection, and…. I have managed to create a perfect boho capsule wardrobe. I was so proud 🙂 Capsule wardrobes are life saviors, especially during vacations, when we want to look beautiful and fashionable but at the same time, we don’t want to spend hours deciding what to wear. Moreover, I know, that during my next summer in Occitanie I will use my capsule boho wardrobe.
This year during the winter sale season I want to create my winter capsule Parisian wardrobe, so… wish me luck 🙂
