Today I thought I’d post a selection of recent outfits… so you could actually see my capsule wardrobe in action (see the links at the end of this post for the capsule all together). It’s pretty hard to get a shot where I’m not wearing Bea and most of these were captured running out of the door, hence so many featuring Pete’s feet! Apologies for the quietness round here this week too… I’m actually writing a post about my postnatal body that I just don’t want to rush, so watch this space.
So hot favourites in the wardrobe right now? Boyfriend jeans. Always. Unfortunately this pair has developed a hole in the crotch (hate that word,) but I am NOT replacing them until I can buy a size down having lost some weight. Serious motivation that!
In all honesty, this is pretty much my daily uniform, striped tee and boyfriend jeans.
If it’s warm, this skirt is also getting a LOT of action. It’s one of the most flattering pieces I own at the moment and gives me some shape which is pretty unusual again in this forgiving capsule collection! The tee is great too – just a bit different as it has a slight slubby texture due to the linen.
I’m also loving having so many different blues in my wardrobe. When it’s warm bringing them all together feels like ocean shades – so fresh and summery.
I’ve not captured many work outfits but this one featured a casual v-neck tee doubling up as work wear when it was really warm, dressed up with the pencil skirt and jewellery it looked pretty smart.
I’ve also managed to start venturing out more. Pete and I have been so lucky to have babysitting help from my mum so we can resurrect date night – we were in dire need of it – and it’s been fun dressing up a little and having adult only time. The top outfit was from a cinema date and this one was from drinks with the girls when my New Look jumpsuit got an airing on a balmy evening.
As an aside, this is the only bag I’m using too – £30 white faux leather rucksack from Zara that fits in a few essentials for Bea (nappy, wipes, drink, snack, shoes/cardigan/hat etc) plus my keys money and a bit of room for small shopping. (this one is very similar and only £19.99!) It’s so good to ditch the change bag!
Happy friday readers… and expect something meaty next week
