Capsule Wardrobe Challenge – Day 3



Day 3 of the Capsule Wardrobe Challenge.

I wore a dotty top, and black trousers, red shoes, red belt and silver necklace. Pretty basic, but I had meetings today so had to be reasonably 'normal'.

As a graphic designer I can get away with wearing more risky clothing combinations, I think some of my clients expect it, but today I played it safe.

Another graphic designer once told me that when you go to a meeting, it you wear the clients' corporate colours subtly (we're not talking looking like their walking logo), they will feel more at ease with you. Same goes for job interviews. (And that is actually a good tip).

Not to be outdone, my son has gotten in on the challenge. He doesn't know the meaning of the word 'Capsule' or 'Wardrobe', but boy, he's got a mean 'hand on hips' stance.

Aw he's so cute!
I love your look today. Great tip about the corporate colours. I once worked for a PR agency and their corporate colours were orange and purple!

You look great! I love the polka dots.
Your son is adorable!
I work in a school, I wonder if it would be of benefit for a teacher interviewing to wear the school colors . . .

He is so cute. I love the red balt and red shoes. They worked well with your dotted top.

Good work! I'm enjoying the challenge. I reckon my life would be easier if I had the Thomas top and camouflage trews!

Oh, your son is such a show-stealer! Look at those cheeks!

I love your whole ensemble today, but especially the polka-dot blouse. I didn't remember that you were a graphic designer - I guess it's been a while since I looked at your profile. My sister's also in that line of work, and it's been interesting to see how her personal style has evolved as she works in the design field. (She has a very different style from mine anyways - much more bohemian and artistic.)
