You know that dream where you’re back in high-school? Well, it’s come true.
It’s official, the nineties are back in style this year. Expect beanies, plaid shirts, knee-highs and chunky boots.
The problem I have with that is I live in a boarding school, and it might be a tad freaky to see today’s kids dressed like I did in high-school. Like a bad deja-vu. Or a joke meant to make me feel old?
Anna Wintour I’m shaking my fist at you.
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 get so excited when I get a chance to dress up. It really doesn’t happen that often any more, now that we live in our little Swiss mountain village.
Fortunately the school my husband works for provides several festive occasions a year, and of this I am very grateful.
For example tonight is a dancing birthday party. Oh boy!
And here is the outfit I picked out. I particularly love the swishiness of the dress. I just want to make it twirl.
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.
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.
