If you think that I am fake laughing in the picture above… you are correct.  I’m not super comfortable with the whole picture taking/posing part of blogging so I guess you’ll just have to deal with fake laughing or contemplative looking to the side pictures. I give you permission to make fun of me.  You’re welcome.

I recently traveled with the shorts in this picture and I realized how badly they wrinkle.  I can really only get one wear out of them before they are a wrinkled mess.  And this is where doing the capsule wardrobe is changing my approach to my wardrobe.  In the past, I would have gone out and just purchased a few more shorts like this in the pursuit of trying to find the “perfect” jogger short.  Now, I’m choosing to accept the fact that they are not perfect and to be content with what I currently have. Lesson learned: next time, I’ll pay attention to how material wears when I build my capsule.  Having an intentional hiatus from shopping helps eliminate my tendency to get rid of a bunch of clothing and then fill my closet with just as much (if not more) new clothing.  I’m creating a new normal of less and that’s a beautiful thing.  Do you have any clothing items that you regret adding to your capsules?

Until next time,

    Yes, posing isn't my favorite part of blogging either ! I just started my capsule last month so I know I'll regret some items. Since my family doesn't own a lot of white clothing items, it takes a while to do the white laundry…which gives me a hard time wearing them as much as I want to, because I also tend to spill on my shirts.. But i think white clothes are so sophisticated ! So I don't know yet what I'll do next time. I think a capsule is made to improve the next one, as you said, we learn from our current capsule, and don't run to the store to buy more clothes ! ��

      I totally know what you mean about white clothing! I love them, but with a baby they are really hard to own. In fact, I've had to wash my white shorts every single time I've worn them because I spill all over them. But you're right… it is all about moving onward an upward right?!

    May I simply say what a relief to discover a person that really knows what they are
    discussing over the internet. You actually know how to bring an issue
    to light and make it important. More and more people have to look at this and understand this side of your story.

    I was surprised that you are not more popular since you most certainly have the gift.
