Hello, friends. I finally figured out how to scan this photo and get it here. Phew. Over the weekend, we got to see Thomas the Tank Engine and ride on a train pulled by Thomas. It was hot and crowded, but still fun. Here we are with Sir Topham Hatt:
I wore my brown Live Free t-shirt, boyfriend jeans, and blue Converse. Sir Topham Hatt is sporting one of fall's hot colors: mustard yellow!
Sunday I wore my navy tee from Boden, grey boyfriend jeans, and blue slip-on oxfords from Pikolinos.
And today I wore the same t-shirt in a different color: red-orange. I added my brown shorts and white Converse from my summer capsule.
I'm still figuring out my fall wardrobe. I think it will have a lot of neutrals, navy, and darker greens, and then this orange t-shirt and a yellow cardigan. I'm trying to buy mostly things that will last me for years, rather than cheap trendy stuff. Whenever I identify something that I want, I check my closet to see if I already have something that is similar or fills that same role. If I don't want to wear what I already have, it goes in the donation pile.
I also know that many things that I wear in the fall will roll over into my winter capsule, so I'll get more than three months' worth of use out of them. That makes it easier to spend a little more on a higher quality item.
I'll keep sharing my process as I build my wardrobe, and I'd love to hear about yours. Leave your link in the comments if you like!
