Capsule Wardrobe Challenge – Day 1



This week I am taking part in Jane's Capsule Wardrobe Challenge over at 'The Small Fabric of my Life'. The rules can be found here.

For a very quick recap of the rules:
10 items of clothing are allowed and must be warn Monday – Friday. (This includes clothing, shoes and outerwear).
5 Accessories are allowed (to include jewellery, belts, scarves and bags).
Tights, underwear, watches and glasses (if you wear them) are free!

I must admit, the first day didn't go well. I didn't prepare. So this morning, by default, this flowery dress, blue cardigan and red shoes became part of my 10 items.

The red belt and the silver necklace are 2 of the '5 Accessories'.

As tights are free items, I choose bright red ones. Why not?

Here is my full list as I haven't had time to take a photo (reads: I haven't had time to wash and iron everything yet being the undomesticated goddess that I am).

My 10 clothing items:
1. Flowery Dress.
2. Blue Cardigan.
3. Black Trousers.
4. Long line T-shirt.
5. Dark Blue Skinny Jeans.
6. Black and White Dotty top.
7. Black Blazer.
8. Red Platform Shoes.
9. Black Boots.
10. Red Coat.

My 5 Accessories:
1. Red Belt.
2. Black Belt.
3. Silver Heart Necklace.
4. Scarf.
5. Red bag.

So, 4 days to go. I hope you are all joining in too...

I love the color combo! Good luck with the challenge, I can't wait to see what else you come up with.

You are a brave one!I love that you didn't shy away from color, But it really shows that you know which colors suit you!

I know if given this challenge, I would wear all black and grey or I would give up. (plus even though I pretty much wear the same jewelry everyday, I think its more than 5 things!)

Great use of a 'free' item (the tights) and thank you for a real live example of my "coloured tights yes or no" question!
Looking forward to seeing what you pull off for the rest of the week...

Brunette, this dress was from Tesco! I got it friday evening in the sale. £9. It is a bit lightweight and summery mind you, so need tights and cardi at this time of year.

I love th elook. I saw the dress in my Tesco too but they didn't have my size.
Can't wait to see the rest of the week!

Great color combination! Those red tights are a clever addition. Those can be a pop of color for every outfit you put together.

Kallie said...

Lemondrop Marie said...

I so wanted to join in but didn't plan far enough ahead. I love your tights and shoes with the great floral dress, fab!

Leah said...

I know that challenge...but I'm not creative enough to do it. This is a great look. I love the red tights, shoes and belt that you used.

Kari said...

Sounds like it is going to be a great week! I love the bright red tights & other red accessories with the flowery dress. They make the print look bold and not too "pretty", if that makes sense.
