4th Annual HowToGYST ‘One Month Challenge’: Capsule Wardrobe!

In 2015 I unintentionally started a movement that's been pushing people to achieve those goals that had been in the back of their minds for a long time. This year, I'm continuing the One Month Challenge tradition. My own personal test for the month? Implementing a capsule wardrobe.


4th Annual HowToGYST 'One Month Challenge'  – implementing a capsule wardrobe

I love clothes and, if you've been following me for a while, you may have noticed I have a lot. 😉 The idea of a capsule wardrobe always kind of terrified me because I just couldn't see how I could ever live with so little.

But it's precisely when we're scared of something that we should face our fears and push through to the other side. And you all know my motto: Do it anyway!

So for the month of August, my challenge will be to reduce my closet significantly and only wear a select number of items. Watch the video below to see how many I chose, what they are, what rules I've given myself, and why my travel plans might throw a spanner in the works.

Are you ready to join the #OneMonthChallenge movement? I'd LOVE to hear what you're tackling, whether it be the capsule wardrobe or a challenge of your own choosing. Let me know in the comments, or tag me on social media so I can cheer you on. 🙂

Come August 1st, we're all going to start strong so that, by the 31st, we can look back with satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment.

Are you with me?

  1. I want to sew something everyday. Lately the only time I sew is when I go to a quilting class, workshop or retreat. I want to sew more at home. I think I don’t sew at home because there’s so much else to do and I feel guilty if I’m sewing. But I need to get over that and just sew. It can be quilting, piecing, hand stitching, embroidery, hand quilting, applique, or even cutting fabric to sew, maybe even folding and organizing fabric. Starting today!

    • Yes! Enjoy your hobbies! You’ll never get to the end of your life and wish you’d spent more time cleaning, but you’ll definitely wish you’d spent more time doing what you loved. x
