The No Brainer Wardrobe
by Hayley Morgan of The Tiny Twig
When I was pregnant I only owned about ten articles of clothing that fit me. And it was awesome. I knew I had a limited maternity wardrobe budget so I only bought things I could mix and match and that I felt good in. Since then, I’ve been determined to create a capsule wardrobe that would work for my everyday life.
Then I read 7, got a bit obsessive about it, and donated practically every single thing in my closet. You people who are reading THAT now know what I’m talking about, right? So I’m in this place of trying to build a small, functional and working wardrobe.
Enter The No Brainer Wardrobe. Hello, excellent timing.
Here is an excerpt from the book description:
The No Brainer Wardrobe is a book to help women learn to love the clothes they have, lose the clothes they hate, and shop for items to fill the gaps. The book contains over 80 pages of content, including images outlining outfit selections, how to shop, and how to build a lookbook.
I loved this book. It has really good, do-able suggestions for building a wardrobe that feels extensive without being overwhelming or excessive. I put together a pinterest board at her recommendation to use as a visual reference when I am shopping and I’m working on cataloging what I currently own. She has a lot of great tips for uncovering your style, working with your body type and creating outfits that look + feel great. The visuals in the book are a big help and I especially liked the section on how to effectively shop thrift stores. Overall it is a great reference.
The hardest part of going through this process is the parting. You know, saying goodbye to the stuff I never wear for one reason or another but looks really good hanging in my closet. I’ll post more about my closet evolution another day but between the two books, I am really pleased that I decided to do this. Plus, I have so much less laundry, hallelujah.
