My Capsule Wardrobe Experience: Video Blog


A while back I discovered this blog called Un-Fancy. It’s all about having a minimalist wardrobe. A capsule wardrobe. Here’s the concept: you have a minimal amount of clothing per season-like somewhere around 30-40 pieces. Those pieces include dresses, tops, pants or skirts,jackets and shoes. You choose items that you love and then you get rid of everything else.

I’m dishing about the whole experience in the video below and giving tips and pointers if you are looking to create your own- check it out!

*Thank you to Nate Byrne for providing the video and voice recording

Hi, I’m Maggie. I have two spunky, hilarious and active children. Zoey was born in 2008 and she is currently in first grade. Emmet was born in 2011 and has a combination of childcare providers. I’m digging this parenting adventure and cross my fingers each day that I’m not screwing my kids up too much. I’ve invested in a good health care plan so I’m prepared to offer counseling to them as they grow. I love cooking. I hate cleaning. And I wonder if I’ll ever feel like a “real” grownup! (I secretly hope not). In 2015, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer. This has made a huge impact on my life, my family and my priorities. It's also made looking on the bright side the focus of my life. Follow more of my musings on my personal blog!


  1. Love this, Maggie! I’ve been accidentally doing this anyway, it seems. I’m inspired by this, though, so I’m going to make it official 😉 If I try Stitch Fix, can I give you credit for the referral somehow?

  2. Love this. I have been trying to stick to this idea for the past several months. It resulted in alot of dresses and 1 pair of pants.
    With twin boys who are just over 15 months I think dresses are not always the greatest. I am hoping my fall capsule will be ready soon as I have even less let’s say 20 pieces so far. Better start shopping for those key pieces
    You are an inspiration!

    • Thank you! Dresses are hard when your kids are that little! I’m a major Marshall’s and TJMaxx shopper. But I also recently started doing Stitch Fix! Have you tried that? It’s great for busy moms who have a hard time getting out to the store to shop!
