Transformation Tuesday: #28: Capsule Closet Clean-Out

I met McKenna Moe of The Modern Mosaic earlier this summer and we were chatting about capsule wardrobes. She has a fabulous wardrobe with limited space in her Queen Anne apartment. Obviously I had to find a way to help her organize it by editing and pulling out key items for summer so she could find things more easily when dressing for work or heading out to an event or happy hour. 

She was open to the idea of a capsule wardrobe so that she could get a better picture of what she wanted to wear for the current season (it's kinda tough fighting against heavy wool coats when you're just trying to grab a light cotton romper!). I love the challenge of working in small spaces and spent an afternoon with McKenna editing and organizing.

I think it was one of the hottest days in Seattle and thankfully, we had a fan going in the room while the talented Nick Southcote from Parallax Video filmed our little organizing adventure.


A time lapse of the afternoon was the perfect way to capture how quickly a space can transform.  We followed the five easy steps to guide the clean-out and purging process but didn't adhere to any specific rules for building her summer wardrobe. McKenna focused on light, breezy pieces that she could wear to work or out-and-about.

I had so much fun doing this and was impressed with McKenna's quick decision-making skills as she sorted out quickly what to keep and what was going to stay. If you want to see more of McKenna's incredible fashion or what she's up to, head over to her blog or follow her on Instagram!
