If you’ve been following me here these past few months, you know I’ve been building a conscious closet. A few months ago I used the approach I learned about back in May and took a critical look at my fall and winter wardrobe.
First, I changed everything out. All the summer stuff got put away in my dresser and all the winter layers and sweaters got put in the closet. I had already gone through most everything with my closet clean out, but I did double check that everything still fit and was in good condition.
Then I started looking for fall inspiration to help me find gaps in my wardrobe. Above is a picture of some of my favorite images. I love the slouchy, menswear vibe. I love the oversized sweaters or sweaters with dramatic sleeves. I like the idea of taking the color palette I discovered in the spring and just making it a bit richer.
After assessing what I had and what I wanted I was able to make a list of key pieces that I would like to add to my closet. My first stop was the thrift store where I got a few sweaters, some skirts, and some great layering pieces. I have a video up today sharing everything here!
Then I started planning out some things that I wanted to make myself. In the coming weeks I’ll be sharing my fall module as well as a few extra pieces I’m throwing in.
My goal is to have a fall and winter closet that lasts for years to come and that I can add special or trendy pieces to on years that I want! Also, I want to be honest and say last week I think I got dressed once and was mostly in my sweats the rest of the time. So cozy and comfy pieces are also a big must for me!
Are you buying/making anything new for fall and winter this year? Or has being at home more changed how you get dressed and it’s not as big a priority? Or are you like me and in a new climate where you truly do need new things to wear to match the weather? Let me know!
