Outfit Nine | Striped Sweaters and Summer Denim.


I have gone over and over in my mind about these two items and The Capsule Wardrobe challenge. I love them both but are they multipurpose enough for The Autumn Capsule Wardrobe? Probably not. After all soon it will be too cold for cropped Denim of any kind. Then again its just so hard to think of not having these Boyfriend jeans from Zara on regular rotation. Ever since buying them I have worn them almost every week for just over a year, they are just so darn comfortable! and not to mention the wash on them is incredible and the relaxed fit makes me feel weekend relaxed with tee shirts and shirts but also dressed up with more fitted tops and pointed heels.

Now onto this sweater, I love it because its Cobalt and from Gap, but I don’t love it because its a longline jumper and I’m not always sure it suits me as much as say a cardigan. Thats the thing about doing the Capsule, you only have a limited amount of clothing options. Sure it makes everyday dressing easier but now that I have less options I feel like I can’t waste any of those pieces on something I can only wear occasionally. Maybe its just because its not cold enough yet for some of my clothes but I can’t help but feel that there are a few mistakes still in my wardrobe.

So I was pretty sure I could get rid of these two, but then this outfit happened. The two things I thought I no longer needed appear to be the very best together, isn’t that just typical? So what do we all think? Should they stay or should they go?


*p.s excuse the half asleep eyes but the pose was just too good and I’m only half vain so what the heck, hello my real face!

    I love this look! I think you should keep them and maybe pack them away for winter. There are several pieces that I wore a ton in September but probably won’t wear as much as the weather cools… but then again there are pieces in my capsule I haven’t even touched yet because it hasn’t been cool enough. That’s one of the things I’m liking about this season– I feel like my wardrobe changes as the weather does, even though I’m not adding or taking anything out of my closet!

      That’s what I was thinking! I’m beginning to re think how to work the capsule for next season however because as you say it sort of needs to adjust more as the weather changes then again most haven’t started their fall capsule until October which is interesting! And same! I’ve even been able to take quite a few through to india as well! 🙂

      Of course! Who isn’t? 🙂 I will have to add you when I’m back in the UK! Today is the day also! 🙂 xxx
