Bonjour - I'm menellia


I'm so glad you're here. In 2015 I took a trip to Paris after a deep desire for something BIG and out of my comfort zone and reach to happen to me. Of course, it took me a few years before I finally got to my coveted destination, but when I did - my perspective and approach to living changed. Tres Cliché, I know. I created Bonjour To Life in the hopes that it inspires you to become your lifestyle connoisseur. Bienvenue Cherie. 


If you have a very tight budget, live a simplified lifestyle, and always want to look polished and put together, then starting a capsule wardrobe might benefit you. In today’s post, I’ll share five benefits of starting a capsule wardrobe if you’ve been thinking about starting one but are unsure.

A capsule wardrobe is simply a carefully curated collection of clothing pieces in a similar color palette you can mix and match to create your daily outfits.

Capsules are usually associated with timeless and classic styles; however, I believe that a capsule wardrobe can work regardless of your style aesthetic. Capsule wardrobes also help you ensure you’re not mindlessly spending on trending fashion pieces and allow you to embrace your personal style.

Hence, these benefits could help you decide on your next step.

Benefit 1 – Saves You Time

A capsule wardrobe saves you time – One of the great things about a capsule is that it follows a color palette. If you are in a rush and don’t know what to wear that day or when buying online or in-store, you’re looking for pieces aligned with your color pallet. Having a palette means that your clothing pieces are easy to work with together, making outfit curation easier since the guesswork is eliminated.

Benefit 2 – Saves You Money

Having a capsule wardrobe saves you money. Your goal is not to add or keep adding pieces but to use less with a well-curated selection. Your pieces are interchangeable and versatile plus, if you invest in great quality pieces, they will last a long time. That means your monthly purchases will decrease. p.s.

Benefit 3 – It’s Sustainable

When you adopt a capsule wardrobe mindset, you think and look at your style more sustainably. You’re not constantly adding and throwing out lower-quality pieces that reduce waste. Your focus is on wearing what you have and loving what you wear. Again starting with a great foundation of basics makes your wardrobe functional and fab.

Benefit 4 – Creativity

A capsule wardrobe forces you to be more creative and develop your style. Because you’ve spent so much time outlining your capsule, you can play with your pieces to create a new outfit almost every time. They work with each other and force you to step outside the box when it comes to becoming your stylist. And isn’t that what you want? To love your style

Benefit 5 – A Capsule Wardrobe Boosts Your Confidence

If you’re always feeling insecure with your style, try curating a capsule wardrobe to boost your mood and self-confidence, whatever your style, bohemian chic, classic and timeless, or flamboyant. When you find your style – you will look, feel and exude confidence in what you wear. This is one of the greatest benefits of a capsule wardrobe.
