January 2015 Capsule Wardrobe Highlights

I'm about one month in to the winter capsule, and it's been decidedly un-winterlike around here. Sure, we did have some frigid days here and there, but so far very little snow and eerily warm weather the past few weeks. I'm certainly not complaining, but I may have to make some changes to my shoe selection of this not-winter continues. (But please do continue!)

Here are some January capsule highlights.

Favorite looks:


{1 / 2 / 3}

Most and Least Worn Items: 


Least: eShakti Black Dress / Gap Bootcut Jeans (both were on my "not sure I should include" list)


Odds and Ends: 
  • 2 things I wish I would have included (and may swap out the two least worn items above for): white jeans and denim jacket
  • Favorite "uniform": jeans + chambray shirt + sweater + statement necklace
  • Favorite new accessory: This necklace from BaubleBar
  • Favorite pop of color: Red

I'm linking up with In Residence and Just Jacq for this month's Winter Capsule Outfit Showcase. Be sure to check out their and others' January highlights!

  1. I love seeing what you wore most or didn't wear! I have loved all the pops of red you've included too! I wish I had a pair of white jeans, I think that would be a great addition!

  5. Thanks Beth--I like seeing those clothing "stats" on other people's blogs so I thought it would be fun to include them as well. I love my white jeans, although I didn't include them because I didn't think they'd be practical in winter because of snowy weather. And yeah, it's snowed one time so far this year. Not that I'm complaining about that, but unpredictable weather is hard to dress for!

  6. I found a great pair at Loft last year (I think?) that I really like. I didn't include them because I didn't think they'd be practical for winter, but it hasn't really been that wintery around here lately...

  10. It's been crazy warm here for the last week or so, too. I'll take it, though! I love the red jeans and skirt. So pretty!

  11. Thanks! Yes, I'm definitely okay with it! I keep checking the weather, thinking, okay, when's it (snow, ice, cold, winter) coming?!?

  12. Isn't that interesting that the ones on your "?" list are the least worn so far? That happened to me a bit in fall, and with one cardigan this go-round, and I think that means Goodwill... Love that two of these favorite looks have such a great pop of red - you nailed the winter (not Christmas) red styling.


    Oh, and you should totally make the swap or just add the white jeans/denim jacket... those are staple items that would make great additions to your winter wardrobe too!

  13. Thanks Anne! Yes, it is interesting. I think it means maybe we're getting more and more familiar with what our style and wardrobe needs are (maybe? hopefully?).
    And I think I may have to swap them in, especially the denim jacket. I excluded it because I don't love it layered under my coat (too bulky) but the weather's been so nice that I haven't always had to wear the heavy coat. I'll probably include it and the white jeans and then we'll get a foot of snow...

  14. That red skirt is my fav, it look so pretty on you!

  15. Lucky you! I feel like this winter has been all over the place, but mostly cold. Love the plaid and red skirt!

  16. I know, I did the same thing with my denim jacket, since I was already including a blazer and utility jacket, which really doesn't layer under big coats... but in the end it's all about working our closets, so if there are unexpectedly pleasant days we should for sure get to embrace them with whatever jacket we want. We can also just say that anything "outerwear" doesn't count :) And I'm going to choose to believe that yes, we really are getting more familiar, which means we might be on our way to graduating from capsule-dom and into just plain smart/pared down wardrobe-dom. Yay!
