Fall Capsule Wardrobe Update + 31 Days, 31 Ways




I wanted to take some time to write about how my fall capsule wardrobe has been going now that it is fall! I started wearing my fall capsule September 1 and have worn the 34 pieces (plus one I added) this entire time. I really have enjoyed wearing the pieces and haven't "missed" the rest of my closet too much. I planned to tweak the capsule as needed, and now that it is so chilly, I am swapping out some of the warmer weather pieces and putting in some more cool weather pieces. Here's the current capsule with the swaps and additions.

Tops:
  1. Coral Tee
  2. Light Chambray
  3. Gray 3/4 Sleeve Tee
  4. Gray Striped Tee
  5. Light Blue Tee
  6. Navy and White Striped French Terry 3/4 Sleeve Top
  7. Blue Snakeskin Print Tunic Blouse
  8. Orange and Green Plaid Button Down
  9. Raspberry and Mustard Plaid Button Down
  10. Animal Print Shell
  11. Polka Dot Button Down Shirt

This puts my current total number of pieces at 37. I removed 8 pieces and added 11 pieces. I may also swap in a sweater and/or another long sleeve tee. My goal is still to stay at around 40 pieces.

I am currently participating in the 31 Days, 31 Ways remix at Greater Than Rubies. She has some great daily prompts for remixing your wardrobe this month. I am linking up there and sharing my capsule pieces!

In addition, I am finally on Instagram and have been sharing some different looks on there. Would love to have you follow me there as well!
