Happy Sunday! In about a week December starts, it´s already quite christmassy and also really cold. Time to switch to my Winter Capsule Wardrobe ( Coming to the blog real soon! ) But before we get into that, it´s time for my Autumn Capsule Wardrobe recap. Which item did I wear the least / most? What are my thoughts about this Capsule? What was my favourite purchase? Time to answer these questions…
My black Chelsea Boots! No fuss with tying any laces, I just slip them on and they go with pretty much everything I wear. They also have such a beautiful, classic shape. The prefect almond toe and a really slim cut. Something I think is so hard to find! See me wearing this boots here, here & here…
My raincoat! Only because this autumn was really dry. We barely had any rain, which is quite scary, so I did not get much use out of it. I still love it though, such a vibrant colour and very practical as well 🙂
I shared this look two weeks ago as part of the sustainability check I did with three outfit I wore that week ( check it out here ). This outfit was the most sustainable one of them all and also the one I liked most. The camouflage jacket and the blouse are both second-hand items and I love the contrast of the romantic vibe of the blouse and the military one of the camouflage print. The outfit feels quite unique but also classic at the same time with the black boots, basic jeans, and minimal bag.
Autumn was short this year! We basically had summer until mid October before it started to feel autumnal. This is why I feel like I haven´t got much use out of this Capsule. I mean in December I am gonna start my Winter Capsule Wardrobe, so that means I only wore my Autumn one for two months, which feels not long at all! That being said, I really enjoyed having a Capsule. I had my basics sorted for sure, which was great. I do love my basics. But later on I was longing for some more unique statement pieces, items that really felt like “me”. My goal now is to express myself more trough the clothes I am wearing, I am doing that already yes, but not to the extend I would like. I really got into second-hand shopping and already found a perfect statement piece for my Winter Capsule, which I am so happy about.
I shared an autumnal haul(ternative ) here on the blog with all the items I bought for this Capsule. And since then I only added new pieces for my Winter Capsule since late November so that I can start with it on time. My favourite item from this Autumn haul is the striped dress from Armed Angels. Stripes are just such an easy pattern and it fits me so well! I also adore the ruffle detailing on the sleeves, such a cute accent. I wore it with a cardigan and jacket on top when it was cold or just on it´s own back when it was still warm. It´s an item that is going to be part of my Winter Capsule for sure! Good news: This dress is still available, you can get it here…
That´s it for today! I really enjoyed doing this Autumn Capsule Wardrobe recap, it´s always good to reflect and think about what you can improve next season, right?! I can´t wait to share my Winter Capsule Wardrobe with you all! Do you like Winter? I kind of like it up until Christmas, but afterwards I just want to have Spring right away 😀
I wish you the best day ever!
