I’m sharing Secret in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™.
You know it’s spring when bloggers and youtubers start talking about declutter. I, too, was swept away by the spring cleaning wave and recently purged about 80% of my makeup stash. In addition to that, I finally sat down and went through my entire closet to pick out a comprehensive spring capsule wardrobe that would include pieces for any occasion.
I know I rarely share my outfits with you guys, but that’s because I feel like my style is nothing special. However, when I do share, I receive the loveliest comments, and they inspire me to do it more often. Today I decided to give you a tiny glimpse into my spring capsule wardrobe. The main reason I’m especially proud of it is that I shopped my closet 100%, and do not plan to make any new seasonal purchases until summer. I wouldn’t call myself a shopaholic, but I am guilty of buying a few pieces now and then if I spot a good sale, even if I don’t particularly need anything. A capsule wardrobe not only limits what I can wear, but it also encourages me to think of creative ways on wearing what I already own.
When picking my favorites I found out a few things about myself.
1 // I love jeans. Like, I seriously can’t picture my wardrobe without skinny jeans, a denim skirt, or a pair of jean shorts. Unfortunately, shorts and skirts are not going to be weather-appropriate in my area anytime soon, but I picked a nice selection of multi-colored denim as my bottoms of choice.
2 // I also love stripes. Which is surprising even to me, because in retail stores I tend to skip them on the shelves, yet I always somehow end up buying striped shirts online.
3 // Pink. I was never one for pastels in my wardrobe, except on my nails, but this year I really fell in love with soft pinks. Somehow, this girly color quickly grew on me, so I’ve been wearing it a lot lately.
4 // Metallics. Metallic fabrics, shoes, and accessories are really popular right now, so I was happy to discover several basic pieces that I already had in my closet from years ago. Fashion is always moving forward, but some trends tend to come back from time to time, and it’s fun to revisit old favorites.
While we’re on the topic of wearing fun pieces…
Some of you may know that I used aluminum-free deodorants a few years back, and for a while they worked alright, although they were not ideal for stressful situations. Now that I am approaching my mid-30s, my body is changing and the deodorants I used in the past gradually stopped working. It got to a point where I didn’t want to leave the house because I had to take yet another shower to feel refreshed. And surely I don’t need to explain how embarrassing it is to keep your arms as close to your body as possible so that nobody notices the pit stains.
Lately I have been using both Secret Clinical Strength Clear Gel and Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid, and I couldn’t be happier. My past negative experience with deodorants gave me much-needed perspective on how we take simple life luxuries – like a good antiperspirant – for granted. I really mean it when I say that I can truly rely on Secret Clinical Strength antiperspirants when it comes to odor and sweat protection. I feel comfortable and excited to wear whatever I want. I no longer need to limit myself to dark tops where the sweat would not be as noticeable. In a way, it’s liberating.
I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek of my spring capsule wardrobe! I plan to shop around for a proper garment rack that I can easily move around so I could have all of my seasonal picks at arm’s reach. It will also make cute photos for the blog and encourage me to feature my outfits more often. 🙂
