Fall Capsule Wardrobe: Sneak Peek


It’s been a little while since my last capsule wardrobe update so I thought I’d show you guys a few of the things I’ve bought so far. There were certain items on my list that I’d seen online and wanted to check out in stores, many of which I did not end up purchasing. In most of those cases, the fit wasn’t what I wanted it to be or I didn’t like it as much in person. I did get the four items above though and I’m pretty excited about them.

Madewell maison des a.r.t.s. sweatshirt // Old Navy Plaid Flannel Boyfriend Shirt
Joe Fresh Striped Ribbed Knit Tee // Topshop Advent Chelsea Boots

Here’s what’s left on my list:

– burgundy sweater (I think I’ve settled on a pullover style that’s cropped.)

– black v-neck cardigan (Just a basic cardigan with long sleeves that hits me at the waist. The options I’ve checked out so far have been too long or too scratchy.)

– gray v-neck cardigan (same as above)

– black pleated skirt (Still not entirely sure what shape I’m going for yet, but I was thinking possibly a wrap skirt.)

– gray skirt (Again, not set on the shape yet, but I want it to be different from whichever black skirt I get.)

– solid gray dress (Something basic that I can style several ways. I’m considering this dress from LOFT.)

I’ve seen some options for the items above, but they weren’t exactly what I was looking for, so I’m still on the hunt. I am being pretty picky, but I think that makes sense because I will be wearing these same clothes for three months.

Tell me: Have you bought any fall clothes or accessories recently?

    I think we all need to be picky when it comes to shopping. It makes the thrill of finding “the one” so much better and you’re much more likely to love it–and wear it–longer. I’m loving your new striped tee. Mine are looking a little worn after a few years and it’s probably time to find a few replacements.

    I adore the Madewell sweater! I have a grey dress that I bought a few years back and it has been a staple in my closet. You can never go wrong with a little grey dress.

    Nice choices! I wonder what the sweater would look like over the plaid top?

  4. Those boots! OMG moment I saw them here, I need to have them. Have you had a chance to wear them yet? Are they comfortable? Oh, I hate when I see something online that I love, and I go to the store to try it on, and the fit isn’t right :( Oh well, I’m sure you’ll find other great pieces!

      I haven’t worn them yet! I’m weird and sometimes I like to save new things. Once I’ve worn them for a bit, I will definitely let you know if they’re comfortable.

      We need to catch up- maybe this weekend? I’m going to text you right now! :)
