Spring Capsule Wardrobe

Have you ever heard of a capsule wardrobe? It’s basically a small collection of really versatile pieces that you wear all season or year round. Now that the two boys are moved into one room, Kentucky weather is warming up, and we’re getting ready for our next PCS (Permanent Change of Station.. aka ANOTHER move), I had to do some spring cleaning of clothes. That’s the good thing about moving pretty much every year, you get rid of a lot of stuff.

 

This spring, I wanted to do something different. With a 3rd kid on the way, funds are… not what they used to be. Let’s do some math, shall we? 1 income + 5 mouths to feed + 1 house to pay bills for + 2 cars =A Bad Time...if you don’t budget properly.

 

I knew I wanted to do something like a capsule wardrobe with the kids this season, so naturally, I turned to Osh Kosh B’gosh. Their clothes are affordable, dapper – yet age appropriate, and resilient enough to keep their color/shape even after multiple washes. They also have a 5T option, which is perfect for my older son, who is 5 but not really wearing a Boys 4-6 yet.

 

Here is my preschooler's, Caleb, Capsule Wardrobe -  6 pieces which I can create 13 different variations of outfits. The versatility of these pieces range from playing at the park, attending school, or having lunch with friends. I will definitely use some of these pieces for his Easter outfit. 

When creating a capsule wardrobe, people normally stick to the basics (black, white, gray), but spring has such pretty colors and Osh Kosh’s Boys Spring line colors are to die for! While I didn’t really stick to the basics, I had a unifying color scheme.

My pieces may be different because I shopped online since the closest Osh Kosh is an hour and a half away from me, keep that in mind when shopping in store or online.

 

Here is my toddler's, Isaac, Spring Capsule Wardobe. With these 6 pieces, I can create 12 different outfits.

OshKosh does an excellent job keeping things age appropriate but also giving parents the versatility to dress pieces up or down - perfect for going to story time, going to daycare, running around at the park, or dressing up for Dad's work function.
