I made an end of summer purchase. It goes against the principle of not buying anything for two months of a "capsule collection". It happened and we're moving on.
My laundry is becomming a monster. I have had no time to do it. If you follow me on Snapchat, I documented our trek to our building's laundry room. It's literally a block away and with the wash-dry cycle, I'm walking 15 minutes to do laundry. I know it could be worse, but everything is relevant and doing laundry is a major chore.
My capsule collection has slightly slipped to the wayside as several of my pieces have been abandoned in a dirty mess. I've strayed and am wearing a pair of shorts not on this list. Shoes have become a bit of a difficult affair - I've done well sticking to only the select few, but I've extended that section to incorporate more pairs. To be honest, as long as I'm wearing what I already own I'm in the clear.
Summer sales are so tempting. In anticipation of Fall weather I find that I'm browsing online shops more frequently. I have to keep in mind that like beauty, summer is fleeting and it won't last for too much longer. Fall is coming and instead of trying to hold onto the past, it's important to look to the future and prepare for what's coming. September is going to be a total utter gongshow. I have a wedding, business trip, wedding anniversary, bachelorette party, and am potentially moving into our condo - our move has been a year in the making and we still aren't ready so packing is peppered into the month as well. I think the smartest thing to do would be to remove all tendencies of acquiring new clothing items and channel my energy into these more important things. It's going to be super exciting but I can feel my stress levels increasing.
[EDIT: I did laundry and am kind of back on track. Not really. The base pieces are there, but I've pulled out one of my mom's old silk tops with an oversized flower print because it's Friday and I was feeling it. How do you make a capsule collection work when you have a penchant for big prints? You don't.]
