  1. LOVE your wardrobe capsules! I have purchased 5 of them. For the first time I am looking forward to picking out an outfit for the next day, or even whole week. (This was usually a very stressful process and would result in disappointment and frustration-I couldn’t put an outfit “together”) Now, my mornings are much less stressful and I have time to sit and have a cup of coffee. ?
    My question is, I am a winter and wanted to know how to substitute some of the colors in the capsule without messing up what you’ve put together? I can sub a peach t-shirt for a royal blue shirt, but how do I make that blue shirt work with the other pieces?

  2. Thank you Leah for your comment! You can sub the peach for the royal blue. If you are using black as your base color, you can wear the royal blue, but I would add a statement accessory like a scarf or bold necklace to break up the black & blue combo. Adding a layer over the royal blue piece, like a denim jacket, blazer or vest, would look great too.
