I did my closet sorting and rearranging today, pulling clothes for the spring capsule. We had an unseasonably warm and dry winter here, so spring is looking to be about the same temps as we've been having for months. It's different for me to think of winter/spring and summer/autumn as the seasonal pairs, but that's more in line with the weather here than the traditional S/S and A/W.

Nevertheless, I switched out pieces and have planned some shopping to keep things interesting. One change I'm making to the capsule this season is that all my essentials (collection here and spreadsheet image with wear counts and purchase dates below) are fair game. I'll wear them as necessary, while trying to lean more heavily on the statement pieces I've defined for the season (which are shown in Finds). That means that all my jeans, black and ivory tops, and black dresses will be available to wear. Adding my handy blog graphic of essentials, too, although the list has probably changed a bit since I made that.

(ETA: I just noticed that the spreadsheet lists my rust jersey dress as an essential. It's not. I must have marked the wrong line.)

I'm keeping all my shoes and accessories available too. I mean, they were anyway, but I'm making it official. Also not singling any out for special notice this time.

A few notes on the pieces I chose:

1. The TwoFold clothing dress (first find) has been ordered in IVORY, not the flax shown. It's reversible, and I will likely wear it wrapped with the V in front. And that's, of course, IF it works, which I won't know until it arrives in a few weeks.

2. I'm about over those Eileen Fisher wide legs, I think. They're still in great shape, but I've worn them 91 times. Even setting them aside for a season hasn't really renewed my desire to wear them, and the color feels a little off for my current palette, so I will probably add a functional replacement to my shopping list.

3. The duster is new and I love it.

4. The floral dress is a repeat from the winter capsule. It's the only statement piece I'm carrying over this round.

5. These obviously aren't traditional spring colors, but I'm hoping the addition of some ivory here lightens things up.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, especially if anyone has ideas for a replacement for the EF widelegs.
