The most common question I’ve gotten since I started posting my capsule wardrobe adventures on Instagram?
What is a capsule wardrobe?
So let’s answer that for you! The simple answer is that a capsule wardrobe is a collection of classic and loved pieces that you know you will always wear. Usually, you reduce your closet to just these pieces. Thats it! Some people go big and some people go really small. Either way, the point is to clear out all those pieces you keep for the sake of keeping. Moms already know I recommend this.
I decided, thanks to the lovely Nicole, to try a capsule wardrobe challenge!
A challenge, you say?
Yes, dear readers, a challenge. More specifically, a Ten Day Capsule Wardrobe Challenge. Ten days, ten clothing items. And while Nicole went bright and colorful, in true Sam fashion I went with a more muted color palette. I wanted my challenge to be a bit more minimalist, so lets see what we’re starting with.
The actual process of choosing the items I wanted to use for this challenge was DIFFICULT. The realest struggle was forcing myself to ignore all my usual favorites, because I wanted to try to utilize pieces I loved, but forgot to wear. So maybe that’s a little against the rules, but I’m making the rules now, Buddy.
I went with a ton of denim, because lets face it- I love denim. I had also JUST gotten in my one small order from Black Friday and didn’t want to wait forever to wear those pieces. Another key point is that everything here is pretty damn affordable. I’m about to be living that freelance life so I felt like this made a lot of sense.

And obviously, everything is a bit on the dark side. But its me- who exactly are we kidding? We all know how much I love my dark colors. It’s a thing. We all know.
That’s about it! I’ll be checking in again with a few outfits from this capsule wardrobe of mine, as well as my thoughts on how it helps out this busy life of mine.
