IMPROVED CASPULE WARDROBE MASTERCLASS LAUNCHING FALL 2022 – SIGN UP TO GET NOTIFIED

My current capsule: spring 2020.

Let me start by saying that I hope you’re all doing alright! In the light of the coronavirus we’re all in a state of emergency allover the world, and we all handle the situation with different emotions. And that’s okay. Some people feel better when they talk about what’s going on, others feel better if they distract themselves. All types of emotions are okay right now. You know best what works for you! The most important thing is of course to keep yourself updated (to an extend that seems doable for you) and follow your local authorities.

In any case I hope my content can still provide you with the mental break some of you already come here for; maybe even more so now. Even though the situation is like it is, I’ll keep up with my weekly schedules and routines as per usual – because it gives me energy too, to let my creativity (and positivity) flow and share it with you along the way. I’ve already written down a list with ideas for content both for Youtube, IGTV and in here. A lot of it is requested by you lot, so I can’t wait to start digging into that <3

Lad mig lige først starte med at sige, at jeg håber I alle har det godt! I lyset af coronavirus er vi alle mere eller mindre i en form for undtagelsestilstand, og vi håndterer selvfølgelig alle situationen følelsesmæssigt forskelligt. Og det er okay. Nogle har brug for, at tale højt om sine bekymringer, andre kan bedre håndtere situationen ved, at holde sig selv beskæftiget og distraheret. Alle følelser er okay lige nu. Man ved bedst selv, hvad der skal til! Vigtigst er selvfølgelig, at vi alle holder os orienteret (i et omfang der er håndterbart for dig) og følger myndighedernes anvisninger.

Jeg håber hvertfald at mit content fortsat kan bidrage til det pusterum, som mange af jer måske har brug for i det daglige; især lige nu. Så selvom situationen er som den er, så holder jeg så vidt muligt fast i mine daglige rutiner og mit arbejde – for det giver også mig energi, fortsat at kunne få afløb for min kreativitet (og positivitet!) og dele den med jer. Jeg har skrevet en lang liste med idéer til content både på Youtube, IGTV og herinde. Meget af det er noget I har efterspurgt, så jeg glæder mig til, at dykke ned i det <3

Today we’re going to talk about my spring capsule! Recently I did my big seasonal wardrobe switchover (documented in the video in the bottom of this post), and I’ve also planned to do a vlog soon, where I’m playing around with my wardrobe and coming up with different types of outfits for the spring season.

As mentioned in my first post of the little spring series, I’m so into the neutral palette of beige/light blue and monochromes right now, and I think they are perfect for the spring season. Even though these light colors are not what I have most of in my wardrobe, they make a huge difference to me. The light blue colour and then the more bold red one has really given my wardrobe that spring feel that I’ve been missing so much. I wouldn’t necessarily style all these items with each other (I would never wear the blue blazer with the red jumper for example, it’s too much for me haha), but still they are not hard to style on their own either. I have plenty of lovely neutral and monochrome colours in my wardrobe, that they will both look great with.

So I guess with this I just wanted to say, that even though one of the most important things about a capsule wardrobe is that it is versatile and can be mixed and matched, you are allowed to have a few things that are more isolated too. It’s just important to remember that this is not the kind of items you have most of in your wardrobe. Because that’s where you will start to feel overwhelmed, and it will make it harder for you to put nice outfits together from day to day!

I dag skal vi snakke om min forårsgarderobe! Jeg lavede nemlig for nyligt mit store sæsonskift (dokumenteret i videoen nederst i indlægget), og jeg har også planlagt, at lave en vlog hvor jeg leger lidt rundt med min garderobe, og styler mine fine forårssager på lidt forskellige måder.

Som nævnt i mit første indlæg i denne lille serie, så er jeg virkelig inspireret af det her neutrale beige/lyseblå/sort/grå/hvid univers lige nu, og jeg synes det passer perfekt til forårs sæsonen. De lyse farver udgør ikke mange i min garderobe, men bare det at der er et par enkelte lyse farver – og en lille smule mere knald på med den røde farve – har givet min garderobe det tiltrængte løft den havde brug for, for at hjælpe mig fra vinter over i forårs sæsonen. Det er ikke nødvendigvis alle items jeg ville style på kryds og tværs med hinanden (ville fx aldrig selv tage den blå blazer på sammen med den røde strik, det er for meget for mit farveforskrækkede sind haha), men de er ikke svære at style hver for sig, da jeg har masser af fine neutrale ting, som passer til både den blå og den røde.

Så hertil vil jeg måske blot sige, at selvom det selvfølgelig er super vigtigt, at en capsule wardrobe er alsidig og kan styles på kryds og tværs, så må man altså gerne have enkelte ting her og der, som står en lille smule mere alene. Vigtigst af alt er selvfølgelig, at det ikke er dét som definerer størstedelen af indholdet i din garderobe. For så bliver det nemt uoverskueligt for dig, at sætte fine outfits sammen fra dag til dag.

My spring capsule is mostly old faves in a new way. Some of them are basic which I have in my wardrobe pretty much all year round, a few are from my storage boxes and then I’ve added 2 new things. The navy blue dress is one that I bought in a vintage store in Berlin recently. My idea was to style it with skinny jeans, light jackets/blazers and jumpers during spring, and then as it is as we get closer to the summer season. It’s so lovely, and even though I don’t wear dresses all that much the styling possibilities are endless, and I feel surprisingly amazing when I wear it. So I’m sure it will be a winner! I’m thinking I’m going to try and create some of these outfits in that styling video I mentioned before, which I’ll soon publish on my Youtube channel.

Besides the dress there is the light blue blazer I’m wearing in these photographs. Isn’t she a beaut? I bought it on Trendsales (a Danish 2ndhand shop) and it’s from Ganni if you are wondering. It’s made in a wool mix so I guess it’s sort of a hybrid between a blazer and a coat. It makes it perfect for the spring season I think, because it can still be rather chilly this time of year. I’ve chosen to change the buttons on it too, by the way. The brown ones were not what I would have chosen for it, had I been the designer behind, and they were actually quite poorly attached too. So I replaced them with some nice matching blue buttons instead. That makes the jacket a lot more light and spring appropriate!

Mest af alt er min forårs capsule en samling ældre favoritter. Nogle af dem er basis som stort set hænger i min garderobe hele året rundt, et par af dem er fundet frem fra gemmerne og så er der 2 ting som er nye. Den mørkeblå kjole købte jeg i en vintage butik i Berlin. Min plan er lidt at style den med skinny jeans, lette jakker/blazere samt striktrøjer her til foråret, og så selvfølgelig bære den som den er langt ind i sommersæsonen. Den er virkelig fin, og selvom jeg ikke går meget i kjole så er der altså stylingmuligheder nok og desuden føler jeg mig overraskende godt tilpas i den. Så den skal nok blive en sikker vinder! Jeg regner med at prøve og lave nogle af disse outfits, i den førnævnte spring capsule styling video, som jeg snart udgiver.

Udover kjolen er der selvfølgelig den fine lyseblå blazer jeg har på her på billederne! Er den ikke smuk? Den er købt brugt på Trendsales og er fra Ganni, iøvrigt. Den er lavet i uldmix, så den er måske lidt en hybrid mellem en blazer og en frakke. Perfekt her til foråret, vil jeg vove at påstå. Især fordi temperaturerne jo stadig kan være noget ustadige og kølige. Jeg har iøvrigt valgt, at skifte knapperne på den allerede – de der brune knapper fungerede ikke rigtig for mig, og jeg synes også de var dårligt påsyet. Så jeg klippede dem af og erstattede dem med en matchende lyseblå knap i stedet. Det gør jakken mere let og forårsagtig!

    Your blog is so fab, I really love it. Do you aim for a certain number of clothes in your capsule? I also asked this question before but I am still not totally clear – you use CLADWELL to make this cool visual of your spring capsule? Or is this a Photoshop example?

      Thank you so much!! <3 You're so kind! I usually end up between 35-40 items, that seems to be my magic number. 🙂 If I have more it's very likely that there will be items there that I end up not really using. Bu it's very individual! These visuals are made in photoshop, but I also use Cladwell in my daily life 🙂 Signe x

      Hej Annalise, den er fra Everlane for nogle år tilbage men laves desværre ikke mere 🙁 Du kan dog finde en lignende fra Arket, hvis du klikker på den stribede top på collagen. Skal lige gøre opmærksom på det er et reklamelink, men den ligner meget og er i økologisk bomuld 🙂 Kh Signe
