I have to practice what I preach when it comes to having a plan before I shop. It’s mid March and I’m getting the spring shopping itch! There are so many pretty colors in the stores plus fun jackets, lovely bags, floral prints and Easter dresses. (If you NEED those items, now is a great time to shop!) But first I’m taking time to inventory what I have, find the holes and look at what I have going on this spring. I use these worksheets and they’re a free download for you, too. Before you buy any spring clothes, do these five things. From there I’ll create my spring capsule wardrobe and figure out if there are pieces or colors I truly need. I’ll consider shoes and jewelry, too, because oftentimes, pieces don’t get worn simply for lack of accessories.

A NEW tool I’m offering is the Closet Outfit Planner! Read all about it HERE.

In the Phoenix area, our winter is pretty mild but we do wear sleeves, boots and the occasional sweater. Then in April or so, we can put away all of that stuff until at least November! So we wear spring and summer clothes for about nine months out of the year. In summer here, offices, stores and businesses often crank the air conditioning so everyone takes along a sweater or jacket. When outside, it’s all about cool and comfortable.

For women living in warm climates like Phoenix or anywhere in the south, I encourage you to have a larger wardrobe of warm-weather clothes when they’re what you wear 75% of the year!

Women in colder climates don’t need as many tanks and shorts so it’s OK to give yourself a week’s worth or more so you’re not doing laundry constantly. Especially if you actually sweat in your clothes!

For my spring capsule wardrobe, I have to really focus on my wardrobe color palette because it’s too easy for me to add navy basics or the brown that is trendy right now plus aaaallll the pretty spring colors and I SHOULDN’T because it defeats the whole purpose of a limited, mix and match wardrobe.

THESE are my colors.

7 printed (all black, white, blue, coral)–ideally every printed top would go with every solid bottom

UPDATE! My 27 Hangers Summer Capsule Wardrobe

There’s not a big difference between my spring and summer capsules but when Phoenix reaches 115+ degree temperatures on most days (don’t worry about us–our fall, winter and spring is perfection!), COOL is priority one. I don’t wear tops with sleeves and I add shorts to my capsule. Here’s what it looks like.
