Fall Capsule #1: Sometimes


Sometimes you wear outfits that you love, love, love (see here and here), and sometimes you wear outfits that are just meh. I’m not really talking about this outfit, because I do like this one (and the hat kept my hair dry from the misting rain), but about another outfit that I had planned to go up today (think swan shirt + leather skirt + blue tights).

I wore the outfit, took the photos, and went to go edit them, and just didn’t feel it. Sometimes, you just want to try something new (especially when you’re nearing the end of wearing the same 43 items over and over again), but once on, it’s not your cup of tea (or coffee).

Maybe black and blue doesn’t work all the time. Maybe blue tights (despite being awesome) just aren’t your thing. Maybe you should use your iron more. ;)

It’s not all success over here, folks. It never is! AS much, as I’d like for it to be! But that’s the beauty of this capsule challenge. It’s taught me a lot: I’m 100% not a minimalist, I like prints and patterns (the more swans, the better!), I like color, and I like to be unrestricted (for the most part) when it comes to what I can wear on any given day.

So while a lot of people may not dig this outfit (or the last one or the next one or the next next one), I dig what it has shown me! All that from a little 6-piece outfit, huh?

    I totally know what you mean! Sometimes an outfit sounds like a good idea but once it’s on, it’s a disappointment, boo!! I love this outfit though, especially that bag!


  • I cannot tell you how many times I’ve done photos and looked at the outfit and was like, “oh no… oh no no no.” And can’t believe that I wore something out of the house like that. I have a very cute idea of that outfit in my head though. Your swan shirt is so cute.
