Capsule Wardrobe Week 2 Recap
I’ve been living with my 50-piece capsule wardrobe for two weeks now, and I’m still going strong. I plan to finish out the 30 days, but I have to admit it was fun to break out some spring clothes in Florida this weekend. Meanwhile, here are the outfits I wore this week from my winter capsule.
You saw this first outfit in my Snow Day post. I’d been waiting for a good snow to style my Sorel boots. Unfortunately, the model I have with the pink laces has been discontinued, but you can find this year’s version of the Sorel Tofino Cate at Zappo’s.
Outfit Details: J.Crew Cambridge Cable Turtleneck $98 | white jeans $178
Sorel Tofino Cate snow boots c/o Zappo’s $160 | Dalton Initial Pendant $78
Kate Spade watch $225 | David Yurman link ring $495 | Tory Burch Britten Slouchy Tote $475
The next day was Sunday. We were snowed in, so I wanted to be comfortable. I wore my leggings with a black tunic sweater, which is now on sale for $25. These are THE BEST leggings ever. (They’re available in both Plus and Regular sizes.) I love the wide waistband because it holds everything in, and the leggings never slide down. Unfortunately the scarf is sold out, but this one would look great on black too, and it’s only $22.
On Sunday, I wore my grey cashmere sweater and lavender tank with black ripped jeans and my nude ballet flats. I tried a bunch of shoes with this and never came up with a solution I loved. I think black Converse would be perfect, but I only have white, and they didn’t look quite right to me. I ended up wearing the Felicia Flats because they feel like slippers and are so comfortable, I couldn’t bear to take them off. I’m thinking of ordering a silver pair since I wear so much grey and pink.
By Monday, I was going stir crazy. I didn’t even get dressed from my capsule. I called it a “grace day” and pulled on an old pink Zella sweatshirt (similar) and a pair of lined yoga pants. I would have worn my Metro Skinny Pants, but they were in the wash. They’re my go-to pants when I want to be comfy, and they’re more flattering than the ones I was wearing in this picture.
On Tuesday, I was feeling more like myself. I got showered and dressed, put the kids on the school bus, and went out to run some errands so I could get out of the house. I’m a homebody when it suits me, but there can be too much of a good thing!!
I wore this on Wednesday or Thursday, I can’t remember which. I like the pink and black with leopard combination.
On the plane on Friday, I wore my oatmeal pullover with skinny jeans and nude flats. I debated whether or not to wear a coat to go to Florida, but I decided that I’ll be glad to have it when I get back to Philly on Monday and I’m waiting for the shuttle to take me back to my car.
Here’s another picture in front of our rental house in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Not too shabby, eh!?!
I’m not sure where to fit in my vacation outfit pictures. I don’t have enough pictures for individual posts, but I can’t really share them with my capsule wardrobe pictures. Maybe I’ll just do a post with Florida outfit pictures.
I also want to tell you about where we are staying and some of the things to do in the area. I’d never even heard of Destin, Florida until this trip, but it is a beautiful area. I just wish there were direct flights from Philly.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
