Winter hit Germany in full force this month! It´s absolutely freezing here at the moment so my Capsule Wardrobe can really proof it´s practicability for cold temperatures. And it indeed did and still does a great job in keeping me warm and good looking! Today it´s time to discuss all things Capsule Wardrobe for the month of February. You know how it goes by now, so without more rambling, let´s start!
Ok I am cheating here, but I´ve worn these thin turtleneck jumper both so much, that I just had to include 2 items this time. They are the most perfect layering pieces ever! I love to wear them underneath other jumpers or sweatshirts for some extra warmth. The turtleneck peaking out of the jumper ( round-neck) I am wearing on top really transforms the whole outfit! I also like to roll up the sleeves of the top layer a bit so you can see the different coloured turtleneck jumper I am wearing underneath, such a nice detail and super simple to do!
The striped one is perfect for adding a subtle pattern into a plain jeans and pullover outfit! capsule wardrobe experience
The white wool number is the perfect layering piece for dressing up a casual outfit and making it look more put together…. capsule wardrobe experience
that´s how it looks layered with a velvet jumper on top 🙂 capsule wardrobe experience
I actually really like this cardigan! The cut, the fabric & the fit, but here is the problem: It´s so chunky that it doesn’t fit underneath my winter coats properly. Something I should have thought of when I bought it! Such a shame! Hopefully I can get my wear out of it in spring as a jacket…
There where quite a few outfits on the blog I really liked in February, so picking a fave was hard ( as usual ). But the one where I got wild at mixing different patterns won! It just makes me happy to look at all the colours, perfect to beat the winter blues 😉 What was your favourite one?
In my 2 Months With A Capsule Wardrobe Post last month, I talked about feeling restricted by the rules and as a rebellious act going shopping way too much. I came to the conclusion that I have forget about the no-shopping-rule and see if I am less tempted to buy new clothes when the restriction is gone. And it totally worked wonders! I only bought two new items this months and both where well considered buys. I am really happy this experiment worked that good 🙂 capsule wardrobe experience
Another important thing: Even though tomorrow is the first of March, I am gonna carry on with my Winter Capsule Wardrobe for half a month. Why? Because it´s freezing cold in Germany ( -11°C ! ) at the moment and it´s sadly not going to change soon. So there really is no point in starting my Spring Capsule Wardrobe just yet…capsule wardrobe experience
I bought a new pair of straight leg jeans in February and I am obsessed with them. I had a light blue straight cut one in my Capsule, but sadly it was really poor quality and stretched out enormously whenever I wore it. It was so annoying. So I donated it and treated myself to a new, well made pair from Wrangler. Just everything about them is perfect! The colour is a beautiful mid blue, the length is perfect for my short legs and, most important, the fit is amazing! capsule wardrobe experience
