Fall Capsule:: Outfits 25-32

There are a few outfits missing in this set. I’m really much closer to 40 different outfits from this limited set of clothes. It’s exciting to think of what I’m creating with less than half of what I normally work with. It’s getting close to time to re-work the fall capsule just a little bit. The high today in Athens is 39 degrees. Tomorrow’s high is 49 degrees. Though it’s going to warm up a little bit more through the end of the week (and we’re supposed to see 70 again this week– thanks Georgia), I think it’s time to add a few more cold weather options to the capsule.

cardigan:: J.Crew
tunic:: Madewell (similar)
leggings:: Aerie
flats:: DV by Dolce Vita (similar)

Tunics are one of my favorite options when you just don’t quite feel like wearing dress and want the comfort of leggings. It was a long day at work this day, in case you can’t tell by my lack of hair style and make up– and jewelry. Oy!

vest:: J.Crew
popover:: J.Crew (similar)
skirt:: GAP
booties:: Sam Edelman (exact same from Clark’s)

OMG guys these booties. They make me so excited I forget how to talk. I’ve been wearing them ALL THE TIME. There’s one outfit between 25 and 26 where I’m also wearing them. I almost wore them out of the store that day. I can only assume that Clark’s version from this year is just as comfortable.

cardigan:: J.Crew
dress:: Merona (this year’s)
heels:: Franco Sarto (similar)

This outfit is pretty much outfit 20 with different shoes and a different color cardigan. I love this dress though and am dying to figure out other ways to wear it. Any suggestions?

cardigan:: J.Crew
top:: Madewell
pants:: J.Crew (similar pattern, similar fit)
flats:: Madewell

These cardigans are easily the star players of my capsule wardrobe. I highly recommend taking a trip to your nearest Crew and scooping them up with the 40% off sale. Though I didn’t officially count them in the fall capsule, I think I will count them in the winter half  in an effort to continue to simplify. I’m still not going to count heavy coats, vests, and other true outer wear items.

hat:: American Eagle Outfitters (similar)
coat::  J.Crew (similar)
scarf:: Merona
dress:: Madewell
leggings:: Old Navy
boots:: Aldo (similar)

In case you can’t tell, it got really cold there for a day. I also think this one is out of order. I think it actually goes between 31 and 32.

cardgian:: J.Crew (similar)
top:: Madewell
belt:: Vintage
skirt:: Topshop
booties:: Sam Edelman (exact same from Clark’s)

Corey kept calling me the woman in black in this outfit. I told him Johnny Cash wore ALL black. I have cognac mixed in. This may just be one of my favorites of this set though.

vest:: J.Crew
tee:: GAP
skirt:: Madewell (similar)
booties:: Sam Edelman (exact same from Clark’s)

Can you tell I LOVE these booties? Also the morning, when I took these pictures, it was almost 70 degrees. At some point during the day a cold front blew in and by the time I left for home it was 40 degrees and I was not wearing enough clothing for 40 degrees. Sad to say, but this skirt is going to get swapped out for something warmer during the winter capsule.

button up:: Old Navy
skirt:: Asos (similar)
tights:: GAP
booties:: Kenneth Cole Reaction (they also come in navy!)

All of these pieces are staying though. I am more than thrilled with these booties too. If you’re looking for a black suede pair, check these out. I found mine at Marshalls. I noticed the pull tab for the zipper on the back is strange though. I’ll probably end up changing it.

So out of this batch, which one is your favorite? What do you think should go for the winter?

  1. Ahhh you totally DO have royal blue! That skirt is FAB. I would legit wear all of these, style muse 🙂

  2. I think my favorites are #29 and #32. Those are the silhouettes I would wear myself.

    I need to do a tally of my capsule too – there are a lot of pieces I haven't worn and may need to be switched out.

  3. So many cute looks! I can't pick a favorite! And we are totally having the crazy yoyo weather too. I can't handle these massive temperature swings!


  4. First of all, I love that maroon cardigan! My mom just bought me a maroon cardigan that I'll finally get to try on when I visit my parents tomorrow, and I can't wait!! Also, I'm totally with you about tunics. I wore a tunic, leggings, scarf, and boots to work yesterday and I looked cute AND felt comfortable! 🙂
