And I actually don't have that pink jacket yet - it's on its way. I hope I love it as much in person as I do online. Here is the link to it, in case you like it, too.
I plan to get two more short-sleeved shirts, a crewneck sweater, and maybe one more new jacket. After I know if I'm getting a new one, I'll decide which one or two to use from my closet.
I should have everything by September 15th, and though it would have been ideal to have everything before tomorrow, I say it's never too late to get started! So jump in any time - you don't have to wait until any particular date. Anyway, I'm just using an even smaller capsule until those spots are filled, so I'm not even breaking any rules.
You might notice that I don't have a lot of color going on. It wasn't intentional, but I think it will make it really easy to mix and match. With my pale complexion, I think neutral colors tend to be more flattering, too.
As you choose your capsule wardrobe, are you noticing that you have a few favorite colors to wear, or are you choosing a wide variety? I think either way could work just fine, especially if you choose colorful tops but have several neutral bottoms to mix with, or vice versa.
