Fall Capsule #1: Whirlwind Weekend

Holy cats, guys. I needed this weekend, but somehow, I also needed another four days tacked onto it! I had a great time chilling with my family, making eating way too many delicious cookies, online shopping my butt off, and watching my two favorite football teams win (go Colts and go Indiana University…keep that Olde Oaken Bucket)!

I’ve also reached the last month of my capsule challenge! I’m excited to stretch my closet (which shouldn’t be that hard) for another 19 outfits and then move onto the piles of sweaters that have not seen the light of day since this challenge started. I miss you rest of my closet.

I am planning on cleaning out my closet/drawers/shoe racks, because I definitely need to get rid of some stuff. I have missed some pieces and then also realized I don’t miss other pieces. I’m also excited to continue to develop my style, which this blog has definitely helped to do, and see what missing pieces I have to compile my 2015 Wishlist (since I feel my 2014 Wishlist has been successful). I’m still not sure if I’m planning on doing a winter capsule, but if I do, it won’t be until 2015.

How about you? Are you doing a winter capsule? How was your Thanksgiving!?

  • I am loving the combination of that sweater color with the scarf. Such a fall outfit! I wish I had better luck with the fit of clothes at Target. You’re making me jealous, girl.

  • I like this year wishlist idea – I did like the capsule overall and am going to do another (perhaps a bit modified) version starting January, but I don’t know if that is a feasible lifetime plan for me… while I was happy for the pre-planning, it was rather a lot of work and perhaps pushed me into unsmart choices at the beginning because I needed to finalize the capsule and wasn’t going to be able to shop. So a longer term list to focus my shopping but not put time restrictions on sounds like a good way to go. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for your future list and/or capsule – I’ve loved following this one!
