After a few weeks of record breaking temperatures in Laguna, it is finally starting to cool off. Which means, hopefully, I will be able to pull out some of my winter styles. My summer uniform consisted of jean shorts and tank tops or sleeveless swing dresses. And let me tell you, they need a break.
Through fall it usually stays pretty warm around here. So it’s not always realistic to wear a top under a sweater and a leather jacket or wool coat over a sweater. But hey, a girl can dream right?
Until recently, you wouldn’t be able to find a piece of black clothing in my closet (besides workout gear). I, for some reason, thought I was “too fair” to get away with it, it “washed me out”. Not anymore. Recently, I have tried to change my outlook on dressing myself and my personal style. Keeping with trends, but finding a style that fits me and I am always comfortable in. With everything I have going on, I don’t want to spend tons of time looking at my closet deciding what I want to wear. I want to be able to throw on something and feel good in it. After reading about a woman who transformed her style through a capsule wardrobe, I was intrigued and slowly started the process of constructing my own.
A capsule wardrobe is defined as
“a mini wardrobe made up of really versatile pieces that you totally LOVE to wear.” Caroline of Unfancy
Creating a closet full of clothes you love and can wear all the time, genius. I realized, while a few colorful pieces are fun to incorporate, when I would go to get dressed, I chose the simple styles and neutral colors nine times out of ten. I now know, I need a base. A set of standard items that I can build upon. I am still navigating this process and my closet is still too full. But I look forward to continuing to find my own style and my own identity, and sharing it with you.
Here are a few looks that I hope to draw inspiration from
