A Casual Capsule Wardrobe for Fall to Winter

Capsule Wardrobes Fashion Advice

A reader reached out asking a question about a casual capsule wardrobe.  What would I have in a capsule wardrobe if I wasn't a fashion blogger? I am an urban planner working in the architecture/engineering/development space. I make enough money so that I can buy clothes that are well made, but I also cannot break the bank and don't have the space for a ton of stuff that's rarely worn.…

The first look from my real-life holiday capsule wardrobe is one of the more casual options.  This could be worn to Thanksgiving, to a work party right after being at the office, a dinner party at a neighbor's house.  To make it more festive I swapped out the traditional brooch for one shaped like a snowflake. sweater | pants | bag | brooch | earrings | shoes Sweater: Audrey Cashmere…

Real-Life Capsule Wardrobe: Chico’s Travelers Collection [Sponsored]

Capsule Wardrobes Fashion Advice

Thank you Chico's for agreeing to be part of this project. While this post is sponsored by Chico's, I had full creative and editorial control. Chico's Travelers Collection is a cult favorite, copied by many but never as good as the original. Wrinkle-resistant fabric that moves with you, doesn't cling, dresses up and down with ease, is seasonless and also machine washable; the Travelers Collection from Chico's is pretty perfect…
