I think I’ve pretty much completed my capsule wardrobe. I even incorporated some color because I’m sneaky like that.
The goal here is to take “thinking about what to wear” out of the equation. Getting dressed has never been a really challenging thing for me (I like clothes), but I’m all about keeping things simple these days. I also want the challenge of thinking creatively about my outfit based on what I have, instead of shopping to try to “fill” the creativity hole that can happen when I wear the same thing over and over.
I tried to buy strategic pieces that will grow with me as my belly grows, but I may need to adjust based on how large I’m getting.
What is included: tops, some outerwear that really completes an outfit (not just regular coats), shoes, and pants/denim.
What is not included: loungewear, athletic wear, jewelry, tights, scarves & other accessories, and bags.
from top left: one (similar), two, three (I did not order maternity), four (can’t find online), five (via Marshalls), six (a pea in the pod, cannot find online) seven, eight (similar), nine, ten (a pea in the pod, no longer avaialble), eleven, twelve (cannot find online, similar), thirteen, fourteen
(I’ll try my best to update with “similar” items for any items I have that aren’t linked. I was surprised by how much I couldn’t find online, or it was purchased on sale so it’s no longer available!)
In total I have 27 items here, and Caroline suggests including 37 items. So, if I need to add some larger tops to the mix as my pregnancy progresses, I’ll be sure to update them in this post!
My goal is to share my outfits of the week every friday here on the blog. Perhaps you’ll find a bit of inspiration in working with what you have based on my experience with it. To be completely honest, I’m a little concerned that I’m going to get bored in about a month, but we’ll see what happens!
