229 days to go: Capsule Wardrobe Challenge, day 3

Right, apart from one scarf this is the rest of my wardrobe all done.
From now on it's a mixing and a matching.
I am finding it so much easier to get dressed every morning. While I won't limit myself too much in the weeks to come I will definitely plan.
Now all I have to do is get round to planning meals too.
It looks like it will be pasta and pesto again tonight kids!

I wore......
Brown Shoes - Clark's
Jeans - Gap, Curvy
Red long sleeve Tee - Primark
Red Blouse - Zara
Brown Scarf - Magazine Gift
Ear-rings - Gift


see you there! said...

You inspire me with your layering. The blouse over the long tee is perfect.

Been catching up from a bit of blogger absence and realised I've missed the capsule wardrobe challenge - got my knickers in a right twist about that!
So - just to feel I can play along I am going to test myself for a week and see if I can be organised enough to lay out my outfit including accessories,undies the lot the night before. It might save my morning scramble and if it gives me more time then I'll do it always. Victoria Beckham does it so if it's good enough for her.....! Like todays outfit BTW!

Stacy said...

I just love your hair... it's so darn cute! I also love those red shirts... I don't wear nearly enough red but it is such a bright color in the middle of winter gray. Looking forward to the rest of the week mix and matches.

Oooh, I love your red top. Very nice.

I made a mistake with today's top because it has short sleeves and I'm freeeeezing now!

Kristen said...

I am also amazed at how much easier it is to get ready in the mornings since I started this. I'm thinking that I'll be planning out outfits in advance more often!

It really IS easier to get dressed each day, isn't it? I'm really enjoying doing this :) I have to say, as a SAHM, I don't often plan my clothes for the week like I did waaaay back when I worked out of the home -- this has taught me the value of getting back to that habit, especially on busy weeks.

And I must say, Jane, you really look amazing in shades of pink & red -- like today, that red just makes your skin glow & your eyes look great! And I love the way you draped the scarf, so chic :)

Goober said...

Love the blouse - so cute.
Gap curvy jeans are my favorite!

I've been getting to work on time this week (shocking!) - figuring out my outfit the night before really does save time.

KT said...

So, (and I'm not just saying this) either that is totally a flattering look for you (it is) or have you lost weight? Or is this taken at a different angle? Something looks different to me today.

Sheila said...

The scarf makes this so classic - you look lovely. All your outfits look so different, and I feel like mine are all the same!

I have issues...haha.

Jane said...

Thanks Darla
Thatgirl - Glad to have you back
Stacy and nsm - When I bought this shirt last year I wore it to death so it is nice to start wearing something I loved again
Kristen, Goober and Kayleigh - It definitely saves those extra minute sin the morning
Sheila - I have been watching your blog and you look fantastic, i don't think they are all the same.
KT - I wish I had lost weight but I am the heaviest I have been for 4 years :(
