Disclaimer... I photographed this outfit last week, as I was narrowing down what 35 items of clothing made the cut for my limited wardrobe project.  So, since you probably memorized my very important capsule, you realize this outfit isn't totally kosher ;)  The vest didn't make the cut.  It's been on the blog a few times and it is very versatile, however I just don't quite love it.  I ended up picking a couple less basic vests, but I get excited to wear them because they have more personality and I find them more flattering.  

Picking out the items for my capsule ended up taking me longer than anticipated for that very reason.  Finding the perfect balance between items that were versatile, and items that were interesting proved challenging.  I didn't want a collection of 35 statement pieces, because it would become quickly obvious that I was wearing the same thing over and over again if each article was memorable.  Alternatively, 35 very versatile items could lend to a bland wardrobe.  Ultimately, I went with mostly "basics", but definitely ventured out with a few funky colors and patterns.  I have 5 or 6 pieces that are very distinct, and I'll be very curious to see how much wear I end up getting out of them (like my BCBG sweater wrap, overalls, and mauve quilted sweater).  I'll definitely be doing a recap to go through what wise and poor choices I made during the selection process.

  1. Adorable look! I need to catch up on your blog and check out your capsule wardrobe. What a cool experiment!

    1. Thanks so much! I'm hoping it goes well and is fun :)

  2. It's so hard to make these choices. I am seriously impressed you did it all upfront. I will be honest and say I breezed through yours really quickly because I didn't want it to affect my choices since mine is a work in progress! But I did decide to keep my cream vest. For my trip yesterday, I found the cream to be more business casual friendly than lets say our plaid old navy one. I will still have a fun vest too! And totally agree with not wanting ONLY basics.

    1. Your jcrew version fits so much (and is so much) cuter! This one is just kinda boxy and I always dislike it in photos so it didn't make the cut. I can't wait to see your final selections!

  3. This is such a cute outfit. Look forward to see how you work the capsule!


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  4. I'm wildly impressed with this. It would be so tough to pick only 35 items!! So, nice job. I really like that you added this necklace to the outfit. It's a beautiful touch.


  5. I like everything about this outfit. The shoes with the shirt, the vest with the purse. It all works. Thanks for linking up at Who's Wearing What Wednesdays at Pastries, Pumps and Pi!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Your sweet comments make my day, and I read each and every one of them!
