Spring 2016 Casual Capsule Wardrobe

Alright y'all! I finalized my 2016 Spring Casual Capsule Wardrobe and I am pretty excited!

If you need more information on what a capsule wardrobe is and why I decided to create one, you can read all about it here

My working wardrobe is very professional -- lots of suits and high heels -- while my after work life is pretty casual. I wanted to make sure this capsule was comfy, yet appropriate for running errands and going out to dinner with friends. 

I narrowed down this casual capsule to 38 items --  6 dresses, 8 bottoms, 17 tops, 1 jacket, and 6 pairs of shoes. 

I realize this may seem rather large for a weekend and after work only capsule, but I was very proud of myself for whittling away at my wardrobe and donating the pieces that hadn't been worn in years. 

Without further ado -- my Spring 2016 Weekend Capsule Wardrobe...

Disclaimer: My shoe game is pathetic and they are all pretty warn. I tried to photograph them, but I was kind of grossed out (I'm talking to you weird body oil imprint on my Rainbows...) So I decided to spare you all the discomfort and just link up my old pairs to new pretty pairs that are similar!

**One pair of new sandals when I find them **

And that is my Spring 2016 Casual Capsule Wardrobe! Until the last day of Spring (June 19th) I'll be spending weekends and after work in the outfits above. I do want to note that fancy dresses were not included in my capsule, but may need to be pulled from storage if the occasion calls for a fancy dress. And of course my winter, fall, and summer clothes also went into a storage box. 

As you can see by all of the links to similar items, as opposed to direct links, I did not purchase anything new to create this capsule. I organized my closet and donated a lot of items that I hadn't worn for a long time. I also re-discovered items that were wedged in between larger items or that somehow ended up on my closet floor. Items that I was on the fence about went into a storage bin and I will re-think for the summer season. 

I feel so free with a cleaned out closet. I feel so organized and put together. 

Have any of y'all tried a capsule wardrobe? Did you love it? Hate it?
