I don’t count shoes, jewelry, or other accessories as part of my capsules. I mean, that would just be too crazy – I LOVE my shoes and I love having different options, especially when I’m limiting my wardrobe. Nothing new here, but accessories are the best way to change up the look and feel of an outfit.
That being said, I have seriously cut down on the amount of shoes and jewelry I own. I wanted to share some of my favorite shoes and accessories that you’ll see throughout my winter capsule. There are others in my closet, but these are the ones that are worn the most.
I’m not a huge high heel person, so you’ll notice I stick to booties and flats most of the time. I love having a few bright colors or print options to add some fun to an outfit, and I obviously have a thing for leopard shoes 🙂
So, I just don’t know about this whole blanket scarf trend. I love love love the plaids and different colors and scarves are a great way to ‘style up’ a simple winter outfit (thinking about that 3rd completer piece). But… they’re a little hard to wear, though cutting all of mine in half helped. And they’re just so darn popular that I almost feel like I don’t like them anymore due to the overexposure (almost like Adele and Hello…gasp…I’m not there yet but I feel the overexposure is coming).
So, I kept them, but I’m not sure how much they’ll be worn this winter. I also have a fur scarf, a black and white plaid scarf, and a couple of knit infinity scarves. Over winter break I added two new scarves: a long gray knit scarf from Zara I found on Ebay and a multicolor scarf from Nordstrom. The Zara one I love, but I need to mess around with how to wear it – it’s veeeeery long. And the Nordstrom one is thicker than I expected, so it’s in the blanket scarf category. I’m not sure if I should return it or cut it in half. I love the colors, but I’m going to sleep on it a few nights before I decide.
For a long time I loved the huge statement necklaces, but more recently I’ve been drawn more to more subtle, classic pieces. These are some of my favorites.
The necklace with my kids’ names is my go to for every day. It’s from this shop, Classy Mama Designs, which I love! The leopard bracelet is from another small shop, Love Andrea’s Closet, that I’m a huge fan of. Most of the other pieces are items from Rocksbox that I’ve been sent and decided to keep using referral credits.
Most of my pieces are old, but here are some links to similar items.
