We’re currently in that awkward phase of between winter and spring weather, there are days when the high reaches the 80s and then there are days when the high is only in the 40s, making it a very confusing time for a capsule wardrobe. My current wardrobe is all kinds of mess, but I recently did a Goodwill trip to clean out some (more) items in my closet which felt great! I think I’ve got my winter wardrobe down, and hopefully I’ll be able to streamline my spring and summer wardrobe as well this year.
Below is a very mixed, confused in temperature a week in outfits! Hope you enjoy!

Hello to my first official cold winter outfits post of the season! We finally got the freezing weather I’ve been expecting since November at the beginning of January. It was definitely nice to feel the cold (yes I just said that) and break out all my heavier coats and turtlenecks, though I’m not sure how long this feeling will last, haha.
This year I’ve added a new winter coat from Uniqlo as my smart jacket that I can wear to more formal events or meetings. It’s simple, clean and has a nice cut that gives you shape and look very put together, the weight is not as heavy as I was expecting but it actually keeps me warm in the 30 deg weather so I’m fairly impressed! And then there’s also this little red number I got as a Christmas present from J.Crew which is a very nice surprise and adds a little color to my closet. I also think it’s about time to give in and get a long down jacket for those below freezing days where I want my knees to be covered and protected from the wind… I’ve always been against them because I thought they look very bulky and ugly, so I’m hoping I’ll find one that still looks feminine and will keep me warm. I’m officially becoming a northern(-ish) girl!

I’ve been loving some of the items I got earlier this year in preparation for fall and some new bits I’ve acquired recently. Capsule wardrobe challenge is still happening, but I’m not done prepping my wardrobe yet, there are still a few items that need to be added… But you can see my recently obsession with my black booties from ASOS and black jeans from Madewell. I especially love the fit of the Madewell jeans, if you haven’t already you should definitely give them a try!

It is almost time to start reviewing items for my capsule wardrobe that I’ve been somewhat ignoring this past few months since I’m between apartments. I was having a hard time following the capsule wardrobe rules because my clothes are scattered around the dresser, suitcase, storage boxes and basement, making it difficult to find the pieces that are actually in my capsule wardrobe. I’ve been just wearing whatever is most easily accessible this past 4 months, but hopefully once I moved everything will be easier to get to and I’ll be able to seriously organize my closet once again!
This week’s outfit is a mix of everything, and I think most of them will be great going forward for fall with the help of some extra layers! Hope you enjoy!

With only one more month of summer left, I’m taking full advantage of summer outfits. Recently I’m really enjoying the loose bottoms in my wardrobe, from comfortable trouser, flowly skirts to broken in jeans! This weeks “A week in outfits” focus on how to pair these comfortable bottoms with different tops to create different looks for different occasions.
Also in case you missed it on my multiple Instagram posts, you can see my new obsession that is the Everlane tanks! I have the Ryan tank in charcoal grey and their regular cotton tank in black. I seriously can’t get enough of them and wear them every weekend since I got them (I know, I know). I also just placed another order for a white tank and am considering getting the light grey one as well… They truly are the best! If you’re in the market for some new tanks, you know what to do!

Another week of summer outfits, this week is gear more towards mixing and matching for comfortable work outfits. I’m really loving the dress under a top look, or using a dress as a top. And to my surprise, skirts has been one of my favorite things to wear recently because it helps cover my legs when I’m in the office but also helps combat the heat when I’m outside. What’s your go-to summer work outfits?
