September Additions

Woo-hoo! Today I get to add some new clothes to my wardrobe. I'm still using my summer clothes, but I'm adding in what I need from my fall clothes as it cools off. Today I'm sharing the pieces that I've bought for fall, and I'll tell you more about them as I wear them. 

This is now my fifth capsule and I feel ready to spend a little more to get better quality clothes. I know what I like, and what I have actually wanted to wear over the past year. I think I'm making good choices for clothes that will serve me well this fall and winter and into the future. I will be really surprised if I don't end up wearing all of these a LOT.  

Here's what I've added:

From left to right, starting at the top:
Pine and Ivory striped Breton tunic from Boden
Green, blue, and ivory plaid cardigan from ModCloth

Row 3: 

And here's my first outfit of the month:
Black and white top (from summer capsule), denim A-line skirt from Boden, light blue slip-on oxfords by Pikolinos. I have been vaguely looking for an A-line denim skirt for a couple years now, and this one fits the bill. Surprisingly, I had to order the short version to get the length that I want. At 5'10", I almost always order tall clothes when they're available. 

I like the extra little interest added by the cloth black and white patterned belt. Hey, some of us start small with pattern-mixing.
