Fun with a capsule wardrobe

Lately I’ve been really interested in the idea of a capsule wardrobe. I don’t think I’ll ever fully commit to the idea because it means giving up the trends I love so well, but it got me thinking about what I would stock my capsule wardrobe with if I had the guts to give it a try.

I decided to pick a color scheme and a season: so this would be early spring, and this is my color palette:

It’s a lot of the colors I already wear, with one notable addition: navy blue, a color I almost never wear. But I found these amazing heels and I thought a cool tone would be a nice addition for a pop of color for this “dream” capsule wardrobe.

Check out what I threw together:

Now, this isn’t a true capsule wardrobe; it’s far too small for one thing, and for another, it’s missing some mix-and-match pieces, but this would be a start for me.

Fashion | All that light follows the cracks

Pleats + lace. I’m still on this neutral trend, but I couldn’t help bringing in a soft color into this outfit. I love the swish of this skirt and the wide pleats. On my feet are my fave spring/summer shoes from Nasty Gal, bought last year. They’re great for day and night and as a bonus point, they’re also really walkable, providing I don’t lace them too tight. I wear them almost every day in the summer.

All of my tops I’ve worn in the past few weeks are slightly tinted blue. Hair problems 🙂

Fashion | From day to day

As you can probably guess, I just can’t get away from my color obsession, despite my current neutral-toned wardrobe. Even though this amazing Boohoo romper is a pretty neutral blush, I had to wear it with this multicolored vintage blazer I scored for cheap. I’m into this whole monochrome effect right now, so the blush Jeffrey Campbells were the perfect choice. Funny thing: this old blazer has some serious shoulder pads.

Also: pretty body chain! Simple and subtle, from Forever 21. I love wearing florals all day EVERY DAY.
