The Capsule Wardrobe: The Middle

I have officially made it mid-way through my Capsule Wardrobe Challenge! The first two weeks were actually rather fun. I created new outfits and used my chosen pieces in ways I had not ever conceived. I tried to make myself use at least one new item each day. This definitely helped in ensuring that I wasn't bored with my options right from the start. The eighteenth day was the last day I used a new piece. The thirteenth day was the first day I became aggravated with my choices. 

Coming this far I do realize the capsule wardrobe is just not for me (which I knew at the start). I enjoy options. Having less actually creates more stress in my morning routine. This is something I wasn't anticipating at all. I am going to continue the thirty days and hopefully won't become too stuck on what I am missing. Gazing at all my lovely dresses just breaks my heart.
