With my impending move, I have been trying to concentrate on getting the most out of the clothing I take. Knowing full well that while I will get a few months out of them in Perth, I will be then heading onto the incoming winter of the UK. With one suitcase, I gotta work out how to stretch it as far as I can. Hence why I am adopting the capsule wardrobe concept.
I am taking along a few more recent purchases, which I can imagine are pretty ‘now’ and I may decide to get rid of those after Perth, who knows. For the most part, I think the colour pallet is pretty limited, and everything feels a lot simpler.
STICKING TO NEUTRALS, ESSENTIALS & A POP OF COLOUR
This may be a good thing, for as much black and grey that I wear- I do also wear a lot of bright things! I also am making sure to pack things like exercise gear and around the house stuff- which I usually don’t, then find I need to go buy basics. I even bought a pair of slippers! (I used to just borrow my Mums- when I lived with them or wore socks). I may secretly be hoping Perth is a little warmer than the Adelaide hills.
Recently, in preperation I have managed to get rid of so much and pack what is left into a pile of boxes. I will be quite happy to turn my back on them for a while. Turns out I don’t think I need them.
On my list to add to the capsule? I think I will finally need to get myself some leather pants for the UK winter, and I am totally in love with those Celine glasses.
I have a heap of Cabaret and outfit posts to come- I am just busy getting through all of this moving and I will be back- in Perth, but back posting.
