The Capsule Wardrobe | Preparing for SS15

Umbrella: Zara, Jacket: Primark 2012, Dress: H&M, Jeans: Zara, Boots c/o Long Tall Sally, striped scarf: Next 2013

Caroline of Un-Fancy is unveiling her Spring Capsule wardrobe soon and me? Well I’m dreading April when I’m meant to be unveiling mine.

I have already begun looking into whats out there for Spring 2015 and I have to be honest, I’m less than impressed. I’m over monochrome, and theres only so many black and white striped tops that a girl could need but at the same time I am ready for colour and I am ready for florals.

As far as I can remember I have always jumped the gun on new season stock and whereas I should still be revelling in layers and cosying up in a cuddly jumper on a Sunday I am instead bouncing on my toes and getting all kinds of excited for dresses, light jackets and all things floral!

So whats a girl to do? Well the obvious really, wait. I won’t lie to you guys but the waiting is hard . . . What are you guys keeping an eye out for this Spring/Summer 2015?

Ignore that acne, I had a bit of an allergic reaction to the bed sheets on holiday – fun haha

Next week I hope to share with you guys the basis of my SS15 wardrobe. I have decided to take more time on creating a structured wardrobe based on needs and then maybe later in the season on fun one of pieces which have the ability to transform basic outfits into more exciting ones! But we will start with needs and then go from there, I plan on bringing the rule of three back out from the Autumn Capsule in order to create a structured capsule.

As far as this outfit goes? Well for a cold winters day making your dress into a top and wearing multiple scarves? well that for me is always a keeper. . .

    I’m literally in the process of writing this exact same post lol Spring fashion this year has really got me struggling… Almost so much so that I’m starting to feel insecure about my wardrobe. And that’s the last thing accounts a wardrobe is supposed to be about! I’m certainly not looking forward to building mind. I’ve been trying to work on it for weeks now and I’ve come up with pretty much nothing

      Tell me about it! whats up with that!!! (although are we still too early?) I agree on everything here. As I said with Sara its definitely my decision to skip the spring capsule for a while, I had initially decided to combine both the spring and summer together anyway so its no biggie. I did wonder maybe just do the basics as a capsule? But even then I feel uninspired! Major sadness! Jess xo

        I don’t think we’re too early at all! I know for me it’s snowy and 30 today but the rest of the week is Lookin nice and warm! And I have NOTHING to wear! On top of all that I’m SO over my winter capsule. Like bored bored bored. If I have to wear black one more day I think I’ll die. Haha
        Good luck. Maybe we an keep each other afloat!

    Pretty much the only colorful pieces I have seen were florals – which I can’t do – so I’m not feeling very excited about this season either. I bought a trench coat and a dress and that’s probably going to be it. Hopefully summer brings more color!

      Well I’m glad that I’m not the only one! I would actually love some florals but the right kind! (I want something really big in a great colour) I have now purchased a tunic from Long Tall Sally which will be more off a dress on me which’ll hopefully look cute! My plan is to wait it out not start a new capsule straight away but really go through what I have, then set out my basics and then hopefully re assess the situation at the end of April then there should be a bit more choice! I hope! 🙂
