Just something simple and casual to end the week. I know, I know, I’ve been wearing these boots a lot, but they’re comfy and they go with everything. It was actually a toss-up between these or the black + floral ones, and these just seem to go better with the outfit.

When I first bought this lace t-shirt, I was excited about how versatile it is, but it seems I’ve worn it with nothing else but jeans and flats. Maybe when it gets colder I can pair it with cardigans and jackets and boots, but I’m reluctant to pair it with skirts or heels, because I feel that would be too “girly girl”, and that’s not me at all. It just goes to show, you never know how something will fit into your wardrobe until you experiment with it. But then again, even with just jeans and flats, this shirt still gets more wear than plenty of other things in my closet, so I’m not complaining.

It’s only Tuesday. Is it? I feel like it should be Thursday or something.
Excuse me while I go watch Black Books again. I’ve been working my way through all of Graham Linehan’s comedies, and I love it.

This isn’t what it looks like. OK, that’s not true, this is exactly what it looks like – I’ve replaced another piece in my capsule wardrobe with this new top. But I can explain! After trying on my striped top from the other day, I realize it doesn’t fit me the way I like – it’s pretty form-fitting, and I like something a bit looser. Then I saw this on sale and I couldn’t help myself.
But that’s the thing about capsule wardrobes: they’re not going to be perfect right away. My goal in doing these seasonal capsules is to figure out a complete closet with pieces that work well together, a closet with no “orphans” or “holes”, a closet that I only need to replace if something wears out, instead of buying new things every season. So, as I slowly figure it out, there are going to be changes. As long as I don’t end up buying an entirely new wardrobe by the end of the season, I’ll count that as a success.
P/S: There are three different patterns in this outfit, but it’s not noticeable, is it?
P/P/S: Yes, I’ve worn these jeans for three days in a row on. What of it?

You know, I thought my closet was pretty complete. When I put together the capsule wardrobe, I couldn’t think of any “closet hole”. If I buy new things, it will just be to replace pieces that are worn out or no longer fit. But now I’ve found at least one thing missing – a big plaid scarf. This one I have is a bit small for my liking, plus it’s silk so it’s not practical for everyday wear. I’m looking for something over-sized and soft, like those Zara blanket scarves you see everywhere last year (it was last year, wasn’t it?) Do I need it? No. But I want it. So I guess I’ll keep an eye out.
