Capsule Wardrobe for the Kids

So I have recently discovered I have a problem.  And as much as I hate to admit it, I am going to have to do something about it.  It is going to be a struggle to overcome but I am ready to deal with it and take it on whole-heartedly. I have too much love for sweet kids clothes.  And that love leads me to buying them... a lot of them... which leads to a closet full of clothes that rarely get touched.  I love consignments and a good online deal but I way over buy!  I can't believe I am actually telling anyone this but one time, I was being super busy and super lazy and I went for almost three weeks without doing the girls' laundry!  Three weeks!  And they never ran out of clothes in their closets!  How sad is that?!?! That's really embarrassing actually.

I got to thinking about it all.  Over the last couple of years, I have been doing seasonal capsule wardrobes for my closet.  I limit myself to about 30-40 nice and practical pieces that I really love.  And it works really well for me.  In fact, I really love it and don't think I will ever go back to my old ways again.  If it works so well for me, why not try it on my kids?  Why do they need a closet that overflows when I get by perfectly fine?  It will definitely be a work in progress for awhile but I am determined to figure out the best mix for a perfect closet for them.  Not gonna lie; it is going to be a real struggle for me to pair things down and clean out some pieces because they are just so darn cute.  However, it will teach me to appreciate the sweet things we do have and get to enjoy those "splurge" pieces a little more all while making sure my kids are comfy and cute.  

So stay tuned my friends.... Hopefully in the next few days, I can debut the perfect kid capsule wardrobe!
