I have been living with my capsule wardrobe for almost 2 years now, and truth must be said, there are a few Pros & Cons about having a capsule wardrobe. Although I don't find any cons with mine and I so happy about it. But form the point of view of others you may find some cons about it, here is a list of some Pros & Cons of a Capsule Wardrobe.

T H E   P R O S

+ Your wardrobe looks much prettier ! All your clothes will have a place and they will always be organized instead of being in a complete mess. You will see your clothes better and know what you actually own. 

+ It's easier to get dressed. Since everything in your wardrobe goes together and you love everything that you have, picking an outfit in the morning is so much easier.

+ You will save money. When you don't have that need or compulsion to shop, you will stop going to shops just to get something, anything, new. And that will make you save a lot of money, money that you may invest in a good quality piece that will last you years.

T H E   C O N S

+ Outfit Repeating. This may be a con for so many people, but in fact we are the o only ones that care about what we are wearing, most people around us don't even care about what you are wearing. 

+ It takes time to fill the gaps. Now that you are creating a capsule wardrobe with good quality pieces and pieces that will fit you properly, you will spend more time looking for the perfect piece. You will not be content by the first white t-shirt that you find at H&M.

+ Less shopping. This can be seen as a pro and a con, I mean, for people that like shopping for the fun of finding an amazing piece, it's a con, but for those that find shopping stressful and boring it's definitively a pro. And when you are a blogger and your "job" is to recommend items and shops to your readers it becomes a bit complicated,

So, what has been your biggest Pro and your biggest Con about creating a Capsule Wardrobe?
