Every week I have high hopes for blog posts and almost every week I come up short, I am seriously the worse blogger ever. I told Michelle that putting together the capsule wardrobe post was taking forever and yes it still is, this mama is super slow these days. I figured it might be easier to just post what I have found thus far, in case you were waiting with bated breath, you never know, someone out there might be.
First up is that elusive white cable knit sweater, I have found some options, hint I am going to go with this steal, but it’s definitely a wildcard (and maybe a total bomb), but the cut looks nice and the price is insane?! I have been on the hunt for some ivory cords, again this is as elusive as that darn cable knit turtle neck and unicorn! I got seriously lucky and found them on sale (50% off), I am not sure about sizing since I have never tried this brand on in person, but I’ll keep you posted. I did get these black jeans, they fit incredible are super comfortable and so far have kept their fit, black jeans are one of those items that I really hate spending money on because they wear out so quickly no matter how high the quality and I really like my black jeans to look black. They are comfortable like a legging but are more put together, the price is so right it’s worth giving them a try. I really wanted a motorcycle boot in black and a pair of brown booties, but when I spotted these motorcycle boots in brown, I thought maybe they’d be the best of both world’s, at the price you can’t go wrong. I got them in and they are a really dark brown and I needed to send back to get a full size larger (it was free to exchange and pretty effortless). At first I wasn’t sure if the dark brown was to my liking, but after wearing them for a few days I am pretty happy with my purchase, they are really nice quality for the price, although I do wish I would have gotten them in black, because there is a reason black motorcycle boots are a classic. If you found the ‘zero waste’ wardrobe inspiring (I certainly did), and there isn’t a good resale or consignment store near you, I found this online one that seems to get rave reviews and you can even send them your clothes to re-sell, which is a bonus if you are both trying to pare down and want to make a little extra cash.
What about you? Have you been trying the capsule wardrobe? Any success stories? Any great budget shops that have great silhouettes?
