Wow this month flew by! Maybe because I was really busy with work, christmas preparations & blogging. Now its nearly 2018 and it´s time to look back on December and have a chat about my most and least worn item from my Capsule this month, my favourite outfit, and how the experience was like so far. So let´s start!
Definitely is my winter parka! I got it at the end of November because I was lacking a really warm jacket for the cold season and this parka proved to be exactly what I need! I ´ve worn it almost every single day. It looks cool, matches a lot of different outfits and keeps me warm like nothing else…
T-shirts with print are hard to style sometimes ( at least for me ) and this one is no exception. That´s why I did not wear it this month. I just did not have time to put a lot of thought in my outfits. Instead I wore plain white and black ones because they are super easy to wear with any cardigan and it always looks good….
The day I shot this outfit, everything went wrong. My remote control for my camera wasn’t working ( maybe it was too cold? ) the location I wanted to take the photos at was shut down and I did not bring any gloves ( it was so freezing! ). But despite all these difficulties, I really love the outfit from that day. It just felt natural, easy and good to wear it and that´s all I want from an outfit….
When I did my Summer Capsule Wardrobe, I took the no-shopping-rule really seriously. And that was necessary at that time, because I was way more tempted to buy new clothes all the time. But this time, while doing my Winter Capsule Wardrobe, I feel like I am a lot more mature and thoughtful on the shopping front. I don´t need strict rules to keep me from buying random clothes. I overcome my addictive shopping habit and it feels so good. That´s why I am loosing up the no-shopping-rule this time. I am turning it into a mindful-shopping-rule. That means: I am allowed to shop. Not just for the sake of buying anything new, but only to make thoughtful buys. I limit myself to 1 new item per month. And if I don´t think I need a new item, then I am not gonna buy anything at all. This is the best solution for me at this time, the one that feels right for me. I encourage you to do the same. Make your own rules for your Capsule! Taylor them to what feels right for you and it´s gonna be a lot of fun, I promise 🙂
This month I found my dream leather jacket. I always wanted a leather jacket from All Saints, but usually they are so expensive. A few days ago I found the one I always wanted ( the “Balfern” from All Saints ) without a collar reduced to half the price online at Asos. I ordered it immediately and it´s even better than I expected it to be! The leather is a dream and the cut is just perfect for me. Gonna wear this item A LOT for sure…
Ok that´s it for today! I hope you had the best Christmas! See you on Sunday at 8pm CET with the last post of 2017 🙂
I wish you the best day ever!
