In episode 155, Kestrel welcomes Jayde Scukovic, the creative and influencer behind Jayde Archives, to the show. Originally from Australia, Jayde is now based in Switzerland, and she shares travel diaries, light packing guides, and eco living ideas through her blog + Instagram Jayde Archives. She’s also a self-proclaimed #ProudOutfitRepeater and capsule wardrobe addict.
“The less I have, the more I cherish those individual items, and I really love that relationship I’m forming with my wardrobe and my clothing — and even myself. Since I’ve started taking things more slowly, everything feels a lot more positive.”
-Jayde Scukovic, Founder of Jayde Archives
In this week’s show, Jayde shares more on her background and how she made her way into the blogging / influencer world. She also shares more on why she loves capsule wardrobes, how less is more, and her push to celebrate proud outfit repeating.
For Jayde, the restraints of space + finances first led her toward capsule wardrobes, and that direction helped inspire her to ask more questions about sustainability as well.
The below thoughts, ideas + organizations were brought up in this chat:
“To be totally honest with you, the main reason I started my capsules was to help curb my shopping addiction.”
Jayde’s Capsule Wardrobe Pros + Cons —
Pros: saves money, is reducing clutter, saves us time getting dressed
Cons: if you don’t plan it out properly, it can feel restrictive
“If there is one thing that has always given me an icky feeling about the blogging/influencer industry it’s the expectation to be unboxing and wearing something new on a weekly basis. And the influence this then has on others and how they consume fashion.”
