Cleaning out the clutter

I’ve been listening to Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.  It has got me going through my closets doing some organizing.  I’ve done only my clothes and have at least two trash bags. I imagine before all is said and done I will be amazed at everything I get rid of. While undergoing this project I decided to work on creating a more cohesive closet. It seems that I have a bunch of things that don’t go with much or are so worn they need to be tossed. I’ve been whittling down to fewer colors so I create a basic capsule wardrobe and build from there. The bonus is that the fabric I already have to sew all falls in this palette so it will be much easier.

unnamedI ordered some new leather last night to make my husband a planner cover for his Field Notes and some to make myself a new bag and some notebook covers for the store. Look at that beautiful orchid color. Ugh, so in love with it. Yes, it will go with my pared down wardrobe too. I was thinking ahead.

Have any of you Konmari’d your life or created a capsule wardrobe?
