First of all, get me being all bloggery (yes I know it’s not a real word) and giving a fancy name to what is basically a normal wardrobe. But I’m feeling fancy today so we’re going with the title fluid capsule wardrobe.
So what exactly is a fluid capsule wardrobe?
Then last week happened! Seriously it was like -1 degrees and we were having snow showers daily. I get that we do often get spring snow but not like this. It was proper freezing and more wintery than winter. So what’s a girl with a perfectly curated spring wardrobe to do when its -1C outside and snowing. I had to admit defeat and dig out my winter knits and boots, or freeze to death (you can probably guess which one I went for). But it was still April and supposed to be spring time so I didn’t want to change everything back to winter only to (hopefully) swap everything back again in a couple of days/weeks.So I decided to take inspiration from the 5 piece French wardrobe concept and choose 5 pieces from which I created a fluid capsule wardrobe for this crazy weather. The fluid capsule wardrobe is basically a selection of pieces which I can add to my spring wardrobe on colder days so I don’t freeze but without having to completely switch out my wardrobe. This creates a bit of a safety net for when the seasons don’t change as they should (very important in Scotland when the weather does its own thing no matter what). I also think it will be useful again in Autumn when I can have a couple of more summery items available for those warmer September days.
So what do I include in my fluid capsule wardrobe?
- 3 knit jumpers
- 1 long sleeved top for layering
- 1 pair of leather ankle boots
