There's a little trail, a minute's walk away from our house, and it looks pretty good this time of year. Especially on an intermittently sunny day. I couldn't be more please with the photos, I really like their atmosphere. I compared a photo taken when the sun was behind clouds with a photo where it shone and it made a huge difference. A completely different world. I like your shine, Autumn sun.

Capsule wardrobe forces you to be creative, and one day I thought, hey, why don't I wear this lace top over a contrasting colour {rather than wearing it over white like I did here}. So I put it over my trusted red long sleeve top, rolled the sleeves up to correspond to the length of the sleeves of the lace top and there it was! A great combo. It gives the outfit more texture = makes it more interesting.

I previously wore it like that with jeans and loved it, so I tried it with the maxi skirt. Tuck, ready, go!

If you're feeling stuck in a rut and not exactly up for a big styling brainstorming session, the best way to find what to wear is just to try it on. Then try it on with something different. Try it on with something you'd never even consider wearing it with.
Yes, some combinations will make you look ridiculous, but others will make you look great, I promise. It's my trusted recipe for new outfits when I'm feeling a bit blah. Throw some nice shoes to the mix, get yourself a little present {a coffee or a favourite piece of fruit will suffice}, and keep your head up. New day, new beginning!

  1. That's such a spot on tip! Some of my most favorite outfits happened because I decided to try a piece on with something radically different and hoped for the best. And most of the time it really did work! That lace top really does look fun with the pop of red :)

  2. Yes Marlen! So I'm not the only one who plays this adult dress up to find new outfits! It's exactly like you say, your favourite outfits are often results of accidental decisions. I love that! It makes fashion fun ;)
