Jane over at The Small Fabric of My Life has kicked off yet another Capsule Wardrobe Challenge, and this is my first time participating!
I'm sure most of you are quite familiar with the challenge, since most bloggers seem to participate, but in case you haven't heard about it, the rules are simple:
Choose ten items of clothing from your wardrobe and mix and match them for five days between Monday March 1st and Friday March 5th.
You can have any combination of shoes, dresses, skirts, tops and jackets as long as it adds up to ten individual items.
You are also allowed five accessories which include jewelery, scarves, bag, belts etc.
Underwear and hosiery do not come under the ten items and five accessories!
In addition, because it is freakishly snowy in so many parts of the country at the moment, she added this addendum to the rules:
In addition to your ten items and five accessories you are permitted one functional coat, one pair of functional gloves or mittens, one functional hat, one functional scarf and one functional pair of snow boots or other essential footwear needed to get from A to B without your feet freezing off!
With no further ado, I present to you the ten wardrobe items I will be using for this challenge:
Blue Wrap Dress: Moda International, swapped
Gray Pants: NY&Co
Floral Skirt: Old Navy
Blue Floral Blouse: Old Navy
Green Sweater: Marshalls?
Green Button-Up: Merona, thrifted
Gray Cowl Neck Top: NY&Co
Gray Vest: H&M
Purple Heels: Vera Wang for Kohl's
Green Flats: Urban Outfitters
And here are my five accessories:
Purse: Nine West via Marshalls
Scarf: Laila Rowe
Green Dangly Earrings: Body Central
Hematite Hoops: NY&Co
Black Stretch Belt: Marshalls?
I really tried to make an effort not to fall back onto all neutrals, so I based my outfits mainly on blues and greens. For the neutrals I did use, I wanted to NOT use black; hence the gray pieces. I've always thought gray adds a certain depth to an outfit.
I really look forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with for this challenge!
