How We Wore It // October

I knew this months How We Wore It was going to be a little bit tricky for me. I'm currently living in a 10 piece capsule wardrobe and it definitely didn't give me much to work with! I was hoping to luck out and magically have all the pieces I would need to create the perfect outfit. Then I got this picture in my email...



Well crap. I ripped through the thighs of my black pants (holla at my curvy thighs!) and my gingham shirt isn't a part of my capsule this month! I really need to share more about my capsule with you, but that's not the purpose of this post. So I took a look at this picture and thought, "What could I do with my current capsule?" 

I decided to start with a base of black leggings, because leggings run my world! Then I was inspired by the button up shirt, and used an oversized chambray top to get that look. Living in a capusle wardrobe is actually an awesome experience. It really helps open my eyes to how little we actually NEED to make it by, plus it's an excuse to wear your favorite tops over and over. (Like how I wore my favorite sweater 4 times last week. gasp! And no one even said anything or even cared. extra gasp!) I had other outfits in my closet that would've worked better than what I put together here, but I really wanted to stick to my capsule. 


Chambray top: Old Navy // Leggings: Lularoe // Boots: Forever Young Shoes






Now go check out all these other awesome ladies and see what outfits this picture inspired for them!

I'm glad you stuck to your capsule--and I would like to know more about it. Specifically laundring tips so you don't wear out your clothes and stuff--that's my biggest concern.

I like that you kept it simple with the black and white. This was so fun because there were so many ways you could have gone with it! Black and white, pattern...
