Fall 2014 Capsule Items

I've had a lot of fun plotting and planning my fall wardrobe, especially once I decided to clean out my closet and choose a small(er) selection of pieces for a capsule wardrobe. I ended up with a larger number than I originally planned, but it's still a significantly smaller amount of clothing than I had before. I'm linking up to In Residence and Just Jacq for their Fall Capsule Linkup today to share my capsule.

Jackets and cardigans: total count = 8 Can I survive on only 3 cardigans?! I'll find out..

  1. I love the way you styled your collages and can't wait to see how you put everything together. I had the same reaction to limiting my cardigans---so many to choose from. Glad to see you have leopard print shoes--it's amazing how many things they end up going with. I'm coveting those Madewell polka dot shoes.

  2. Thanks for linking up! I'm still deciding if I'm including my cardigans/blazers in my count and I'm definitely not including shoes!

  3. Ooh, glad to see some capsule item overlaps so we can copy each other... and selfishly glad to see similar neutrals for the same reason :) I think it's going to be a great capsule, especially with so many great shoe and completer piece (jacket/vest) options to spice things up.


I really appreciate hearing from you!
