Since I had to clean up all the stuff after the big move, I took the opportunity to review my closet and create a capsule wardrobe. Part of creating a capsule wardrobe is picking & choosing your own signature style. As a result, I have been wearing a lot of monochrome outfits lately which seem to work out great with the bump. So here is some monochrome inspiration for you (also works well without a bump of course!).
A CAPSULE WHAT?
So what is a capsule wardrobe? Officially it is 37 piece wardrobe consisting of versatile pieces that reflect your style and you love to wear. You wear a capsule wardrobe for 3 months and then change it up again and create a new one. The advantages are many: less but better quality clothes, a clutter free closet, not the struggle to decide what you wear every morning, no or less emotional buys and a strong signature style. You can read about my attempt to master the French wardrobe system here and here (hint: I failed) but this capsule wardrobe thing seems to stick (at least for now).
Below some of the outfits I have been wearing in June (30-34 weeks pregnant). My key pieces are a white blazer (Maje), white cropped top (Tiger of Sweden), striped t-shirt (Just female) and my silver Superga and white Converse sneakers.
So you want proof that my closet is indeed clutter free? Unfortunately I did not do a before picture but here is a picture of the clothes rack I use for my work wardrobe. I have to admit it was a lot of work to get to this stage but I get dressed every morning in 5 minutes and received more compliments on my outfits.
What do you think of the monochrome style? Do you wear a lot of black & white or do you prefer colours?
I will be sharing a little guide on an easy way to create a capsule wardrobe soon (work-in-progress) so stay tuned for more.
