Fall Capsule Wardrobes For Kids

Eeeks! I am so excited to finally share these Fall Capsule Wardrobes for Girls and Boys! It’s been something I’ve been working on for awhile now because I love kids fashion and styling, but especially FALL fashion!! A capsule wardrobe is meant to act as a guide to see if you have pieces of different types in your wardrobe that you can mix and match nicely, so that you don’t have to buy a lot of clothes! I’m going to be honest here in saying I buy a lot of clothes for my kids, partly because “fashion” is my job here, but also WHY DOES EVERYTHING LOOK SO CUTE ON LITTLE PEOPLE?! I digress. But if we are getting real here, my kids only wear half their wardrobe, they stick to the pieces that are comfortable (although Vivian does love being stylish and doing some crazy pattern mixing). So this is really for those mamas who don’t want to buy too much for their kids, yet want to be able to put together cute coordinated outfits for them. Both the girl and boy capsule wardrobes contain only 20 pieces you can seriously create a months worth of different outfits with just these pieces!! The whole point of this though is to see if maybe there is a hole in your child’s wardrobe, are you having trouble putting outfits together for your kids because they are lacking a classic pair of denim leggings, that could really go with every top and dress!? Or maybe you are struggling with the different types of shoes your child may need for school, church, weekend activities… I truly believe that these pieces (and these pieces I picked here are only for inspiration) can make up a great wardrobe and you can totally use pieces your child already owns!! Plus, everything I picked out is relatively affordable too!! 

I think another plus about a capsule wardrobe is that it should really be a no-brainer each morning when your child is getting dressed. So many of the tops go with the jackets, pants and shoes. But my best tip is to think about a color palette and kind of stick to pieces around that! That way anything you pick out will basically coordinate with each other! With the rise of everyone Marie Kondo-ing, capsule wardrobes are perfect if you are trying to get rid of clutter and want a more minimalistic closet for your kids (and yourself too)! For me, right now is the time where I am clearing out the smaller sizes and making sure I have the appropriate Fall/Winter pieces for my kids!! And if anything, these pieces can make up a base Fall wardrobe, and then you can add in fun pieces that can still be mixed and matched with some of these pieces in here.

    Hi! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate
    it!
