Today I’m going to do a review and edit of my show capsule. I currently own 18 pairs of shoes (1 purged since the last check-in) of which, eight are boots. The mid calf boots with the heel are from my business/special occasion capsule. The two cowboy boots are worn on the non rainy days for spring, summer and fall. In the winter months, I don’t use them (the salt and slush and grime would ruin them).
That leaves me with 5 pairs of winter boots, except the buckle booties in the bottom row recently went into the rubbish bin because the zipper broke.
For a few weeks, I only had one black boot, but I kept reaching for the short buckle bootie I no longer owned. The black buckle bootie in the top row is the replacement. But then I realized, I never sport the light colored bootie. I adore the color, but the heel is too high for my fussy feet. So that one was purged. The black bootie in the top row, replaced the two booties in the bottom row.
I’m left with 4 boots in my shoe wardrobe. And my current shoe wardrobe now has 17 items:
- Boots/Booties: 7
- Flats/Short Heels: 6
- Sandals/Flip Flops: 4
As I slowly shrink the size of my shoe wardrobe I get to sport my favorite pairs more often. A win, win!
How many shoes do you regularly use?
