In an effort to clear out some laundry, my capsule clothing will start with in its entirety on Friday. I’m working in some pieces while I work out others and add them to the laundry. I have a hard time washing a shirt when I wore it for 4 hours without sweating but I’m not stashing it for 3 months in washing either.
Since this Friday is the start of Awesome Con, I even got my summer costume pieces down to 6. Here is what I’m wearing for the next 3 months.
My River Song costume will be paired with brown cowboy boots, both of which count toward my final 6.
The remaining 4 are my monster skirt, queens of hearts costume apron, and my 11th Doctor dress and caplet.
Not pictured: long tiered dress with a bit of a ruffle going on and patchwork style dress I found at a hippy boutique.
Basics was split between leggings and camis. Every minimalist/capsule advocate hypes camis so I included 2. Leggings are here to act as a layer for skirts that are a little short or a weekend bottom when it’s hot and humid AF. IRL, my blue leggings have a lace trim but you take what Google gives you.
Not pictured: brown capri leggings, olive cami, light blue cami
My culottes are from Kmart circa 2 years ago as are my short, dark capris. This was before I became more concerned with ethical fashion and even still, I’m limited with what is offered to larger sizes. The black pants I actually do own and added them for the 2 days in the summer when it might be cool.
Not pictured: long capris in a medium denim and casual weekend capris, also denim.

I’m waiting on two dresses I kickstarted to come in within the next month or so. They will be added to the capsule. Rather than remove something, I left open space in other places for a current total of 38 out of a possible 42 (48 with costumes).
I am not limiting earrings or necklaces but I will be limiting my scarves and the number of bags I use to 6. I’m also attending Firefly so I’m going to have to do an entry about the Factor of 6 for wicking clothing I plan on wearing.
