Wow you guys, I had no idea that I would make it this far, completely stress free! Getting dressed each day has been a total breeze. I no longer agonise over what to wear, and I no longer have a pile of laundry sitting around waiting to be put away.
I feel like a giant weight has been lifted and I’m loving it! The only thing that I’m really missing though are my accessories. I used to love wearing a different pair of earrings each day. I went through my collection and culled 10 pairs which I will be donating, and I’ve kept only the ones that I love (I won’t be wearing them during this challenge, but I will definitely be including more on my next 3 monthly cycle). It’s amazing how much easier it was to cull and part with them. I feel so much less attachment now, and I’m truly thankful as that’s something I was hoping to gain out of this experiment.
Next will be shoes. I think that’s going to be hard. I have found myself living in thongs most of the time but I do want to upgrade my shoe collection at the end of this experiment as I’m finding they are looking quite old and tired and now I only want to adorn my body with beautiful things!
I realised that I accidentally cheated earlier this week and when I was in a rush to leave for an appointment I grabbed out a cute woven over the shoulder purse to use for the day. Oops. Oh well, this is all a learning curve to me so I sure as heck won’t be punishing myself for it. At least i know I love that purse as I continually want to reach for it.
I know it’s only early days, but I’m finding that I’m still not even wearing ALL of my clothes that I’ve selected for my capsule. I’m not sure if that’s due to poor selection on my behalf or if it’s simply circumstance as I don’t leave the house all that often. Either way it’s been very interesting to watch my habits change.
At this point I would highly recommend this challenge to all of you, even if you just do it for a month to see how you go, I think you’ll be pleasantly suprised!!
