Introducing The 15/30 Project, where each individual has designated her own ‘Capsule Wardrobe’ of favourite garments to wear for a month (April 15). The goal is to create a better understanding of our own personal style while creating a culture that doesn’t rely on buying recklessly and disposing quickly.
Here are the rules
-Any 15 garments from your wardrobe X 30 days
-Accessories (incl. hats, scarves) /gym clothes/pyjamas/socks are not included in the 15 pieces
-No shopping for 1 month
-DIY on the existing 15 pieces is permitted
-Document any way you wish

Since it’s March 15th already in Korea, I’ve spent the entire morning selecting and organizing my 15 pieces as follows:
As funny as this is going to sound, this project is actually perfect for me who works better under pressure and limited resources. As you may have seen in my How to Pack Light for Traveling video (click here if you haven’t seen), due to frequent traveling and moving, it seems that I’ve mastered the art of working with few items. Even for today’s outfit which is the first of the 30 outfits, it took less than usual to put it together. Anyhow, without further ado, here is the list of garments that I will be using for the next 30 days:
1. Mint floral print pleated dress: Korea
2. Black floral print maxi dress: Thrifted
3. White button down blouse: H&M
4. Peach button down blouse with mint collars: Korea
5. Baby blue chambray shirt: Korea
6. Mint/beige striped crochet sweater: Korea
7. Gray long cardigan: Zara
8. Forest green military jacket/anorak: Korea
9. Navy blue blazer: Le Joli
10. Leopard print cropped jacket: Vintage, from mom’s closet
11. Rustic orange coat: Club Monaco
12. Tweed pants: Terranova
13. Burgundy skinny pants: Urban Outfitters
14. Asymmetrical/hi-lo skirt: Forever21
15. Mint pleated skirt: Korea
Looks like I’m all set and ready to go. Let’s do this! Today’s outfit post will be up tonight. Have an awesome day!
