Well it's perfectly lovely for me to make a collage and tell you how about my real-life capsule wardrobe… but isn't it better to actually see the clothes being worn, mixed and matched? If you're not following me on Instagram now is a good time as I am showing my outfits almost every day, mentioning which pieces from the capsule I am wearing, what accents I added for the situation, and where I wore them. What I shared from the past week since I posted about my real-life capsule wardrobe:
What I wore to work Monday: The cream cableknit sweater from Lands' End (similar), black ankle pants from Banana Republic, black Nine West pumps, with my silver cuff (similar) and brilliant studs from Ann Taylor.
The same pants worn last week with the v-neck sweater from LOFT, my leopard calfhair belt (similar), black Nine West pumps, and I added my gold Rebecca Minkoff cuff (similar) and a gold necklace from Stella & Dot.
Another look from last week was the cream oversized sweater dress from Glamorous (sold out – similar) with black tights from Spanx and my black ankle booties (similar). I styled with the silver hoops, silver cuff (similar), silver initial necklace and a silver chain with various charms on it.
This is the black cashmere sweater dress from Nordstrom Collection (similar) with another pair of black Spanx tights, my black knee-high heeled boots and my Stella & Dot pendant (similar). This is a time where makeup is a great accessory; I added a deep wine lipstick from The Elixery to complete the look.
Mega real life here, this is 9am at Target this past weekend. The black and white striped tee from J. Crew Factory, denim jacket from the same retailer, my Gap Real Straight jeans cuffed, silver Supergas (similar) and an orange satchel from Botkier to add a pop of color. My Ray-Bans to finish the look.
And finally, I went to brunch with a few fellow bloggers and this is what I wore. The black fringe sweater from Trouve (sold out online, similar), grey jeans from Gap, the silver Topshop clutch, my silver hoops, cuff (similar), necklace, and statement ring and I added my BCBG Max Azria silver booties from outside the capsule to make the look more fun and trendy. Ray-Bans to complete it.
Work, weekend, and even a social occasion all with the few pieces in my real-life capsule. While I hope to capture some outfit shots with Karl and his nice camera, in the mean time follow me on Instagram where I share my looks real day and am cataloging all of them with the hashtag #WO2wintercapsule. And yep that means that come Spring I'll be doing a new one and documenting it!
