3x22 OUTFIT OF BASICS + FISH BRAID + CURRENT STRUGGLES
Hi friends, happy weekend! We're having a mild heatwave here so I'm going to try spend as much time outside as possible. Whenever it's nice out I get the feeling I'm wasting the day if I stay inside. Do you get that too? It really makes me wish we had a real garden, we only have a small yard and it's far from picturesque. But hey, enough talk about the weather because I'm pretty sure that's not what you came here for. If you did...well then, this is a bit awkward.
For this outfit, I went back to the basics. Black jeans, white tee, jean jacket and loafers. There you have it. Truth is, I've been going back to basics a lot lately. Looking through my wardrobe, trying to pick the simple items and the ones I haven't worn a lot. And I've been thinking about what comes next. It's almost time for most/least worn items and capsule wardrobe lessons and mistakes. And almost time for the summer capsule...
The thing about that is, I currently have no budget to spend on clothes. Like, zero. I'm telling you this, because, well, I made a promise to myself and to you that I'm going to be honest about my whole experience. And because maybe some of you are in a similar situation. Summer is the season I feel least prepared for - I am severely lacking in the sleeveless tops and the normal-length shorts department. The shoe department too! So I'm currently working with a dilemma: should I build a summer wardrobe from what I've got, knowing it won't be a wardrobe I really want? Should I try find a way to get just a few "new" items - through thrift and charity stores? Or should I wait and start my summer capsule wardrobe later than planned? I'm currently leaning towards the last option. Any words of advice?
But I'm hoping you guys will still stick around and wait this out with me. In the mean time I'll be jealous of my fellow blogger ladies' summer capsules, of course :)
