Pastel Wardrobe Capsule | Take 2

As referenced in yesterday's blog post, I'm experimenting with creating my very first wardrobe capsule! 
In review, a wardrobe capsule is said to be 'a set of clothing items that satisfy style needs in one or more areas of your life.' This definitely proved to be more challenging than I had initially anticipated (due to my innate passion for variety), but I thoroughly enjoyed the test.
Since this is my first go at the concept, I opted for a very simple approach. Four main pieces, four separate looks. Here's a look at yesterday's post, Take 1:
How did I mix it up? Well yesterday's jacket became today's blouse, I added a matching linen jacket, kept the same socks, same shoes, swapped a different clutch, jewelry and took away the fedora. Next up: Take 3!!

  1. Hi Joi, when I first saw your photograph on instagram, I thought you were wearing pink suede boots. How clever your approach on these looks have been. The fringe bag on this post is, without a doubt, the coolest fringe bag I've seen. I love it in white and it's a clutch! A double win-win. Very pretty color combinations. I can tell you're enjoying your capsule collection :)

  3. Hi Joi,

    All four of these looks were absolutely amazing. I think look #2 was my favorite! I've been thinking about "trying" to do a wardrobe capsule myself, now that the weather is starting to warm up I think it might be easier for me! And now I have great reference other than pinterest!

    xx,

    1. Thanks Demita!! I was excited to try out the concept, but nervous at the same time because I crave variety in every area of life. Once I buckled down and decided to keep it simple, I found that it was actually fun! I look forward to doing it again, and again ;)
