Sharing my ideas for a fall 2020 capsule wardrobe; classic pieces you can wear the entire season and mix and match!
Hi friends! I hope you’re enjoying the morning so far. I’ve got a doctor’s appointment this am and am looking forward to heading to the pool with the kiddos once Liv finishes her online classes for the day. It’s been 100 degrees lately, and while it isn’t ideal pumpkin patch weather, we’re still living up the opportunity to swim while we can!
For today’s post, let’s chat about fashion-y things! Remember when I did the capsule wardrobe? I went full Marie Kondo on my closet and got rid of everything except the necessities and items I truly loved and wore. It suited me for quite a while and then I was like, “I love shopping too much” and went to the entire other side of the spectrum. It’s like when you tell yourself you can’t have brownies and then eat a whole pan. Moderation works best for me.
With the current world situation, I’ve found myself navigating back towards a capsule-isn type wardrobe. If anything, it’s been more about habit, simplicity and decision fatigue. I feel worn down by all of the decisions and stress from the past handful of months and it’s so much easier to not really think about what I’m going to wear. I have the staples I love that make me feel good, so I rotate through the faves.
I thought I’d share some of my go-tos + and ideas for mixing and matching the outfits. As always, I love when you share your faves, so please shout out any pieces you’re loving for fall in the comments below! (Items I personally own are notated with an asterisk * – if the exact style or brand wasn’t available, I linked to something very similar)
