Work Capsule: Check-in!

Work Capsule: Check-in!

Hey there, mom!  How's it going dressing for work?  I'm trying hard to stick with my 6-item work capsule.  How about you?  Are you trying out a work uniform or what?

Remember my sister, Maggie's?

Quick recap:

6 items for 3 months, starting September 1, ending Dec 1- so, we're halfway there!  Unlimited accessories. 

Here's the 6-piece wardrobe I've been working with:

TOPS:  Gray v-neck, Black v-neck, Striped crew-neck

BOTTOMS: Skinny blue jeans, skinny black jeans, Denim skirt

Moments of truth: 

1.  I never ONCE wore the denim skirt, so I subbed my mom jeans.  

2.  I added a white t-shirt, so, really it's 7 items.  I think this is ok?

3.  I thought I'd be good at documenting this for you, mom but turns out...

a)  I don't enjoy having my picture taken in the early morning, or really any time 

b)  I'm always running late (so the pics didn't happen)

Here's what I got:

Epiphanies:

1.  I feel like myself every day.  No outfit regrets.

2.  My 6-items are simple enough that I can wear any accessory and feel like it "goes."

3.  Good shoes are key.  These Everlane street shoes are stylin' but also comfy.

I realize that my art teacher wardrobe (v casual and cheap) doesn't apply to most, so my friend, Megan, has graciously agreed to share her big-time lawyer work uniform in a few weeks!  Stay tuned!
