Week two of the 20 items | 21 days Mini Capsule Challenge complete. Last week I wore 19 of my 20 items (the green cardigan is the only thing that I didn’t use), so after some laundry over the weekend I was ready to start again. I felt pretty good about re-mixing my items to create new looks, but I’m really missing my shoes. Having only 4 pair seems so boring!! The weather has been unseasonably warm this week, so I planned my outfits accordingly…basically…not as many layers and I saved my tee short for the warmest day.
Over the weekend, I stuck to the capsule. I wore my black joggers with the camel swing sweater on Saturday. This is a combo I never would have thought of, but thanks to most of my wardrobe being in the dirty laundry, that’s what I put together and I liked it! I have a tendency to dress pretty casual on weekends and not put forth a ton of effort – it was nice to wear a sweater I’d typically only wear to work and feel a little more put together. Sunday I wore leggings and a sweater (so fancy for the weekend ;))and my slippers for a day around the house.
We had the day off of school for President’s Day and I was still in full-on weekend mode, so I stuck with my leggings and a comfy tee for finishing up chores and play time around the house. I did have to run out for one quick errand, so I threw on booties and a hat to cover my unwashed day 5 hair.
I am clearly loving the trick of wearing a striped tee under an otherwise “typical” outfit to add some style. But hey, when something works for you…stick with it!
Oh my gosh, I love this color combo! I have been really bored with my black jeans and these light gray pair (AG brand) I scored from Thred Up are such a welcome change. I love the cool gray and warm camel color combo as a way to spice up my neutrals. Mini capsule win!! I don’t know that I would have paired these if the capsule didn’t kind of force me to.
Temperatures were in the 70’s today. In February. Talk about messing with my capsule!! I do have one t-shirt I included, so that’s what I wore today out of necessity. I kept it simple with black bootcut jeans and brown leather accessories (earrings from Nickel and Suede, bag from Lily Jade, bar necklace from Classy Mama Designs).
Every morning I do my best to be up and ready about 10 minutes before we need to wake up the kids so I can run downstairs to snap my daily outfit pics for the blog. Thursday morning this little cuteness came down to find me and take her picture too 🙂 She’s got some great print-mixing going on – stripes and hearts in coordinating colors.
Double denim for Friday’s look, which is one of my favorite discoveries since using capsules. I added some simple leopard accessories and called it good. This is my fallback casual Friday outfit.
My favorite outfit this week was the gray and camel combination from Wednesday. I loved the muted neutrals and bit of leopard. My least favorite was Monday. Mostly because it’s just a blah outfit, but I also don’t think this style of hat is for me. Or at least I haven’t figured out how to feel comfortable wearing it – like I belong in it.
