A Week in My Minimal Closet

My Minimal Closet - 7 Days of Real Life Outfits

A couple of weeks ago when I shared the results of my huge closet clean out, I have to admit I was a little nervous. For the most part I was confident in my choices, but I was worried about whether or not having such a drastically lower number would still allow me enough versatility in my wardrobe for frequent travel and spending time in different climates.

With the weather here in transition, it has been different every day. Last weekend I spend a few days down in Venice Beach, so packing for that trip was on my mind as well. Today I’m sharing 7 days of real outfits from my closet, ranging from sweaters and jeans on a plane to a more relaxed and beachy look.

What’s in my Closet?

Shop my closet on Poshmark!

After last week’s post about cleaning out my closet, you might be wondering if there is anything left for me to wear. I guarantee there is a hefty amount of clothing and shoes left for me to choose from. I started with around 128 items and downsized by about half, leaving me around 60 items total. I thought it would be fun since I make so many packing lists and other capsules to share what exactly made the cut.

Not only did I learn a lot about the process of cleaning out a closet, I learned a lot about my preferences and favorites. I also learned I might want to keep something I haven’t worn in over a year because it brings me joy to touch it.

I thought I’d do something a little different today and share a back to school capsule wardrobe. I feel like heading back to school is such a transitional time that the last thing you want to have to think about is what you’re going to wear. This capsule makes it easy to mix and match, as well as dress more casual or for something business-related, like an interview. Keeping someone who doesn’t have a huge budget for clothing in mind (books are expensive!), all of these items are priced at less than $50, with the exception of the backpack and leather pumps.
