Shopping My Wardrobe for Evenings Out!

Now you might think it's a bit early to start talking about what I might possibly wear over the festive season.......but! If I've learnt anything on my capsule wardrobe journey it's that all the fun is in the planning! This is an area of my wardrobe that I don't like to spend money on......due to pay per wear being low. I actually prefer to dig deep into my wardrobe and bring out the same things year after year. A couple of my pieces are preloved so I shall begin with the tale of this little vintage velvet M&S blazer. I actually bagged this in a clothes swap! It's been in my wardrobe a couple of years now thanks to a lovely lady I met thanks to Instagram who happened to be at the event. You can still pick these up on eBay. I've linked a search here. M&S actually still do bring a version out of this every year as well! This one is a luscious very dark green......I was tempted to buy it in dark red when I spotted it in a charity shop in Glastonbury last winter! Keep your eyes peeled for one if you think it's something you'd like to add to your wardrobe!

Those Little Extras!

As the clocks have gone back this weekend and November is almost upon us I thought it would be apt to cover some warmer practical accessories this week. This is an area I am happy to invest in my wardrobe as they are the finishing touches and offer your outfit a bit of an edge. I often ask for these things for my birthday or Christmas presents.......my birthday is in October and obviously Christmas too falls during the colder months!

Autumn Knitwear Edit

Just a very quick talk through the pieces of knitwear in my wardrobe currently - I realised I skimmed over this area quite quickly whilst sharing the autumn capsule a couple of weeks ago. These are only going to see me through until the colder temperatures kick in.......then I'll be bringing some chunky roll necks and heavier knits out to play. I'm just still a bit resistant to going all out winter just yet.

My Autumn Jeans Edit

Talking through my jeans edit here if you fancy a watch!

This is a requested post - jeans are the cornerstones of our autumn/winter wardrobes aren't they? I have a variety of different styles - there are 7 pairs in my current capsule. Some may look the same but there is a style feature that sets them apart. It's always a bit of a minefield shopping for jeans isn't it! This has been an interesting exercise.....especially in terms of sizing so without further ado.......

My Autumn/Winter Footwear Edit

Although I've tried to resist getting in to the boots too soon I don't think I can put it off for too much longer! I still maintain that boots, bags and accessories elevate any outfit and this is definitely where I have invested this season. Last year I dipped my toe in the chunky boot trend and bought myself a pair of Dr Martens Flora Chelsea boots. They are such a great classic pair of boots, they certainly paved the way for something a tad chunkier still this year! Not only is the sole bigger but these & Other Stories boots go slightly higher up the leg which is just what was needed to be able to wear with skirts and dresses. My inspiration was Jessica Skye here...........

Welcome to my wardrobe! Opening these doors does actually spark joy. I have around 40 items in here, I've carried over around a quarter of the pieces from my transitional capsule.
