ootd: my wardrobe must haves (so far)
When it comes to outfits, I believe there are things that just have to be in everyone's wardrobes in order to make those ihavenothingtowear mornings much easier and also, to effectively mix and match most of your clothes and feel comfortable in the outfits. Those are so called key pieces (yes, I've read the Capsule Wardrobe book, it's bloody amazing!). Now, I haven't yet identiefied all of my wardbrobe's key pieces, but there are definitely some things that I can already say are essentials in my weekly outfits. Let's begin, shall we?
- a grey blazer: I own two of them, both in different patterns & I feel like they complement my outfits so well. I always feel and look more put together with a blazer and also, they are a nice cover up for my always very cold arms (even in summer - yes, we have air conditioning at the office and it's always so chilly!). For winter, I am planning on buying a nice grey cardigan a la Acne style, so that it would be extra warm and still look chic. I think I'll update you on that when the sweater weather officially hits us!
- a pair of Converse: well that's just a pair of shoes everyone should own and by everyone I mean you, your friends, your boyfriend, even your parents! They are such versatile shoes and it goes for white pairs as well as black, grey, navy, even red!, I could go on and on. However, I think I need a black pair, which is a problem as I don't think buying multiple pairs of the same shoes goes with the whole capsule wardrobe thing... whoops.
- a big bag: i'm still in the summer mood with my big straw bag which was the best sale purchase of the year. I absolutely adore how spacious it is, I loooove how it is very simple, no unnecesary add-ons, just pure straws and summer state of mind. I am still wearing it and I'm dreading September and August as I will have to put it away in my wardrobe and start a look out for a perfect autumn bag... We had great times together though!
- a grey dress: I believe I have talked about this dress when I wrote about summer essentials if you remember! I mentioned that I adore midi grey dresses and as you can see, I really do. This one is from Lindex and it is super soft, I feel like it goes with so many things like my blazer, a cardigan and hopefully with my sweaters this autumn. Super excited abiut that time of the year!
I hope you liked my post today, I will make sure to continue my capsule wardrobe journey and update you with some new key peices that I find in my wardrobe in the future.
