First off, I’m laughing at the collage above – I think I shrunk between Tuesday and Wednesday 🙂 And, I’m growing my hair out a bit, so excuse the growing pains I’m suffering right now!
Ok, now on to the outfits…
This is technically my final week of my Winter Capsule, though I’m a bit up in the air about starting Spring next week. We have a spirit week at school in 2 week, so I may just start spring after that. 😉
This week also wraps up the last week of the 20 item 21 day mini capsule challenge. Over the next week I’ll be posting full recaps of both my winter and mini capsule outfits.
Let’s do a recap!
A week or so ago I posted about not feeling like I had any other ways to style my blazer except to pair it with jeans and a tee. My friend, Andrea, suggested I try it with my joggers, so this final week of the 20 item challenge was a perfect opportunity. My joggers have a high waistband, so it was also an experiment with tucking a tee into the high waist. I like it! I also got two compliments from my high school students, so that is always a positive in my book!
It was a bit cooler today than it has been the past couple of weeks so I took advantage and layered up. I joked that I was wearing 25% of my entire wardrobe in this single outfit 🙂
I think the extra layers may look a bit too puffy on my smaller frame, but I liked the general idea of it, so I may try it again with a tank top or lightweight shirt as a layer.
I added my Natalie Borton necklace and simple booties.
Black and camel – my favorite winter color combo. And add some stripes and a touch of leopard and it’s a winner! I also love the longer sleeve length layered with the 3/4 length.
I love the pale neutrals in this outfit. These gray skinny jeans I found at Thred Up are making a huge contribution to my capsule. I also noticed that I liked the outfit much more when I did a little front tuck with the sweater. Take a look at the first two photos below…isn’t it amazing how the smallest change makes the outfit seem much “cooler”?
After surviving 4 days as a single mom this week (hubby was out of town) and a baby who is waking up every few hours I just kept it simple this morning. Striped tee, jeans, sneakers. Comfy, casual, simple, and that is okay sometimes.
Overall, I loved Wednesday’s outfit the best. And although Friday’s is pretty basic, I really like it.
I look forward to spending some time this weekend recapping the entire 21 days to see if there are any big takeaways.
As I head into a new blog “season” starting with my spring capsule I’d love to hear if you have any comments, suggestions, things you’d like to see, or questions I can answer.
Have a great weekend everyone!
