Last fall I got truly inspired by the concept of the capsule wardrobe. In true Tristan fashion, I took to the purging of my wardrobe with such gusto that I was left with just a handful of items to wear. My intention of course was to fill in the gaps of what was missing, but life got in the way and I basically have looked like a hobo since last fall. In fact, my husband was so used to seeing me look like one that when I started to write this post last night he smirked and said, ‘what do you know about fashion?’ not something you want to say to a tired mom with a fork in her hand. I venomously spat out, ‘I did run a bi-coastal fashion PR firm for 15 years, thank you very much’. He nodded, he obviously forgot, because his wife has spent nearly two years looking like a hobo, complete with mysterious stains on her clothes. Now that I am feeling like I should really try an eensy bit harder, I thought I would give it a go again. I put the above board together to see if I could translate this into a more mom friendly version–keep the chic, lose the heels and add the comfort factor (and yes, try to keep it all within a reasonable budget). We’ll see if it can be done (I’ll add this week). I am already finding that the search for the perfect cable knit turtleneck is about as easy as spotting a unicorn. I am thinking loose and comfy on top, more fitted bottoms, some good shoe choices and we’ll be good to go! I am not sure how many pieces this will take, but I am going to try to keep it as minimal as possible, wish me luck!
Have you tried this before? Feel free to let me know where to find that elusive cable knit turtleneck!
