Ok so January went not quite how I planned it ( Woopsie! ). But before I explain that in detail, let´s start with my most / least worn item this month and my favourite january outift:

Most Worn Item

The one item I loved wearing this month is actually a new purchase. Some gorgeous black chelsea boots! I found them at a local shoe store in the sale. They are made in Italy from the brand Covari and the quality is simply amazing. For someone who did not own an everyday pair of black boots, that purchase really was a game changer for my casual outfits!

Least Worn Item

This gingham shirt dress. I actually really liked it a lot when I bought it at the end of November, but something about it just doesn’t feel right for me. It seems to be a little to much out there, a bit to eccentric. Maybe I am gonna save it for fancier occasions, where I want that extra bit of specialness…

Favourite Outfit

It has to be the one with my self-made culotte! I just love how that sewing project turned out and I think the other items look so great with that denim trousers, plus the whole look was super comfy to wear 🙂

Some Thoughts

In January I shopped way more than I was supposed to. To be fair, all items I bought are really great, good quality purchases, but of course that means I did not stick to my own rules ( read more about them here and here ). Why do I even admit this? Why don´t I just keep this from you and pretend to have lived my best Capsule Wardrobe life last month? Well because I wanna show you that it is ok to make mistakes and not to follow the rules sometimes! There are always things we can learn and gain from experiences like this. I think they are extremely helpful, even though we tend to not like them and feel like we failed.

So what did I learned from my shopping spree this month? I learned that the rules, are just too strict for my liking. And because I found them too  restricting, I went shopping as a rebellious act. The appeal of the forbidden fruit! It´s just like that for me when I try to strictly cut out chocolate or any other sweets that I love from my diet. I crave them even more. But when I allow myself to eat small amounts every now and then, I am way less tempted to have a whole bar of chocolate at some point. So for February I am gonna try a new approach. Instead of making strict rules, I am gonna keep the leash loose. No rules, just following my gut. I am confident that this is the right way to go….

 

My Favourite New Item

Puh that´s a hard decision! I think I am gonna go with this striped red top. It´s actually not something I bought, but that I sew a few days ago ( using organic jersey! ). It´s super versatile, the fabric is so comfortable on the skin and I think the cut is just beautiful. Have a look:
