When I heard about the concept of capsule wardrobe I was immediately intrigued. The promise is to simplify deciding what to wear and packing, yet the challenge is collecting just the right kind and amount of stuff.
With this idea on the back of my mind I’ve put together a few things for my personal capsule wardrobe.
I have to say I’ve been pretty pleased with the results and the amount of wear I’m getting out of these items.
As I’m not working at the moment I even have the privilege of considering badass boots and a leather skirt (both from Zara) as basic wear-everywhere items.
I captured a couple of silk tops for myself on the very last day of J Crew’s sales.
I’ve been looking for a nice white shirt to dress up jeans and mini skirts.
Even before Anna was born we’ve had a steady flow of baby clothes coming in. We barely had to buy her anything ourselves.
Yesterday I was checking if she needs anything for the fall, since she’s about to size up to 3-6 months, but she already has so many clothes! There are of pink, bright colors and cute patterns.
As much as I love casual and modern clothes, there’s something about timeless baby clothes in classic colors like navy and gray that is heartwarming. I don’t mean anything too frilly or “dolly looking”, but what about a cute pinafore, or a chunky sweater or the classic t-straps we used to wear?
I think this is what she needs (if anything).
Yesterday we went to Geneva to get baby Anna her Italian passport. I managed to go shopping for about an hour and ended up buying a leather skirt from Zara.
