How to Maximise your Capsule Wardrobe.

When you choose your capsule pieces do you feel like you have to focus on just basics? I think when I began my first capsule that I felt like I could only focus on pieces such as a great T-shirt, a great shirt and fun and fashion forward pieces like Jumpsuits or even out there patterns seemed like a waste of my limited wardrobe space. It took about three months before I realised that maybe those pieces that couldn’t be included at the start could instead just be created to build a more interesting and dynamic wardrobe hence, the two piece Jumpsuit!

Black T-Shirt: H&M, Black Harem Trousers: Next PLC, Red Heels: Clarks 2013, Burgundy Bag: Accessorize, Purple Hat: Marks and Spencers.

The one I am wearing is simply a black three quarter sleeved T from the H&M basics range (costs about £6.99 in the UK) and all I have done to create this is tuck in the T into a pair of harem trousers, belted the join between the two pieces and voila! Here you have it a one piece! I have also loved using a wider brown belt which has been tied in order to create a more casual look but you could of course dress this up with more with glitter, leopard print or even a silk sash!

Epic Fails all round.

I have no new pictures. How silly is that? I don’t mean I never took them, because I did but I forgot to upload them. Who does that? A tired girl petrified at the thought of more tube strikes thats who. So heres a little bitty about life recently until later when I can get you the goods I mean, photos.

Lesson 1: How not to fall off your bike, Aka; Read the Instructions.

“I have a plaster on my knee. (And a bruise. Whats one without the other?) and now everytime I see it I remember one important thing, every 23 year old should probably already know. Lesson 1; when getting your newly delivered bycycle read the instructions first.

I didn’t read the instructions. So my new bike and I came to not so much of a screaming hault but more of a slow-mo fall to the ground sideways. It was classy, especially with all the local smokers staring at me. Number two? I probably shouldn’t have done it in sparkle boots either but I like to live on the edge. 
 
Luckily Josh made me feel better, fed me chicken dippers, and gave me a plaster. I already felt like a six year old whats one more thing?”
Stay tuned folks – I promise to post photos soon.

I’m beginning to think that I have a problem. A boot Problem.

 

My shoe collection has become less shoes and more boots this last year than I (normally) care to mention. I think I went from last year having one pair of knee high slouchy boots (my beloved cowgirl/pirates of the Caribbean boots – I can’t believe those babies aren’t still around, it makes me sad.) One heeled knee high boots to . . . well a lot.

 

So there’s no shame here right? (If so . . . um, shhh??) Here’s the list;

 

Trainer boots x2 (grey and sand – yes I bought the same shoe in two colours!)

 

Sort of crepe soled boots x2 (Brown/Black again I bought the same shoe twice)

 

Black knee high boots (flat)

 

Grey-ey flat sort of pirate style ankle boots

 

Brown ankle boots (there new, A, I love them. B, this is my problem!)

 

The Sparkle boots of joy (there glitter is now falling off in places, again, makes me sad!)

 

Cowgirl ankle boots

 

My snowy fur lined boots (which have a heel and still allow me to walk in the snow fine (shocking)

 

That’s 11 pairs! 11!! And I feel like I’ve missed a pair as well!! The worst thing is . . . I keep looking for more. I see my favourite bloggers in a different type of boot and I’m like . . . want! Want! WANT!

 

So I think it’s my latest obsession. Like when I had ten thousand dolly shoes (this is a small exaggeration) it was more like 12 thousand. But I like to think, on the plus side these have a bit more sole to them, they don’t hurt my feet (unless they pinch, but that’s just wearing them in . . .) and they are ankle friendly! So win win!

 

I’m hoping to get the new brown boots on the blog soon so stay tuned!!
