Grocery shopping style

You didn’t think you would get away without a casual summer shot right?

So the other day I was laying on my yoga mat reading blogs. (I know what you’re thinking that’s an odd way to read blogs . . . but actually I was doing yoga, only obviously I got distracted. That doesn’t really make it any better does it?) Anyway I suddenly realized in my capsule pieces photos I forgot I had added joggers but had I worn them on the blog? Nope and honestly you won’t see them today either . . . sorry.

After all work out/lounge gear isn’t on the capsule so this is ok right . . .? What will make it alright is this is pretty much all I wear nowadays to work out in, these cropped work out leggings are from Gap active and are quite honestly the best things I have ever worn, so thick and comfy I can barely deal.

Now this top. You will have seen it a while back on instagram and probably either thought random slogan T or thought, you like wrestling? Not exactly . . . Me and Josh just love watching E’s Divas and I in particular love the Bella Twins so we have it my dedication in T-shirt form, yep I bought it, official WWE Merchandise don’t judge me. After all I’m in Brie Mode (not to be messed with).

My ideal day is to spend it in leggings as we know and so my favourite Saturdays are by far the days where I wake up do yoga or go swimming and then hit the grocery store before the rest of the day starts, leggings, brie mode and all.

Have you ever had Capsule Fear?

Have you ever had, Capsule fear? 

It’s a strange thing to be talking about it right at the beginning of a fresh capsule wardrobe but for those of you who have already had one, do you ever have capsule fear?

I figured I would and could make roughly 50 pieces stretch over 6 months and in a normal world I would without problem but here’s the thing I worry about. When I blog three times a week I worry about simply running out of combinations. Totally, silly but I know a lot of these clothes have been seen over the past few years and that’s good because what is a capsule wardrobe meant to be about? Oh yeah, being sensible but on the other hand are you going to get bored? I already know that I want to wear my cobalt blue sundress every week but would you want to see it every week? I wear my chambray shirt as a jacket 90% of the time, again are you going to get bored?

I have many worries when it comes to being overly predictable but I guess we will have to see how creative I can be when it comes to fewer pieces. Similarly it will be interesting to see whether I do want to stick to the same pieces over and over again or will I want to wear everything just at different periods across the next six months.

So tell me, fellow capsule wardrobers, do you ever get the fear of boredom?

* The eyelit shirt: Fit.

So I wanted to just take a second to tell you about this shirt. Firstly I love it and so far I know that I will wear it repeatedly throughout summer and perhaps more often than I should but for anyone considering buying one I have to inform you that it is see through there is no backing on the holes so yes if you wear a different colour bra you are going to see it! Because of the fit on this white one on me if I wear a T-shirt bra I have absolutely no worries about this but some this might be a concern.

The art of sleepwalking . . .

I have always been an odd sleeper. My mum in fact even told me that as a child I would come down the stairs a few hours after bedtime and with eyes open I would sit down on the couch beside them completely unresponsive and unspeaking and my mum would say “its time for bed” and I would go back to my room. Entirely asleep. Creepy right? Well I think so. Lucky for me, if before bedtime I tell myself no dreams, no sleep walking, no sleep talking then I tend to not to do it but remembering to do so isn’t always my forte.

So my poor Josh puts up with an awful lot of my sleep chatting but I think he has at least gotten used to it now as long as I’m not too annoying! (one night I may or may not have rolled over sat up and pointed my finger at an awake Josh and told him under no uncertain terms that, “There will be no drugs in this house!” Apparently it was quite frightening, I wouldn’t know, I was still asleep. Sorry cutie!) but anyway, it wasn’t until I uploaded these photos on flickr that I noticed it, my eyes are closed for most of these pictures! I promise I was awake this time but apparently windy weather means keeping my eyes open is extremely difficult!

and one last one for good measure. I call this mid-nap jess . . .
