Happy Sunday/daylight savings. I’ll lose an hour of sleep for an extra day of sunlight any day! I think daylight savings is the only time I ever sleep until 7am. There may still be snow on the ground but we’re that much closer to spring. Anyhoo, I know I don’t usually do blog posts on Sundays, but I wanted to try something a little different and share a week of outfit ideas with pieces from the capsule wardrobe. You can watch the video here. Let me know what you guys think, and if I should make this a more regular thing it was really fun to film because I didn’t plan ahead so it was a nice little challenge to see what I could come up with quickly using pieces from the capsule. What I love about the capsule is how many ways you can wear each piece, and how many of them work together. Sprinkle in a few dresses and sandals and this is basically what I’ll be bringing to Barcelona! All outfit details and sizing info is below (I’ve linked to exact items).

I love posts that show how you can actually get a week of outfits from a capsule wardrobe. It would be great to get a post for a week’s worth of outfits from a summer capsule wardrobe, and travel capsule wardrobe to somewhere warm. Thanks!
Thanks Andrea. Definitely planning on doing a summer capsule as well. If it ever gets here, ughh, haha. xx
Please do these more often!! It’s not realistic for many women to have a giant wardrobe so I love seeing what can be done with just a few pieces versus feeling like I need to buy a million things to pull off a certain “look”. These are seriously so helpful and give me tons of inspiration!
Glad to hear it! I will try to do every week on Sundays.
Loved this… although now I want every sweater you featured even though I live in FL and sweater weather is already but a memory. Sigh.
I wish I could feel bad for you, but I can’t, haha! It’s pouring right now and hasn’t stopped since 8 this morning. And it’s freezing outside.
LOVE this idea! Keep them coming, please! Exactly what I need for packing
Yay! If I have time I will do one for Barcelona packing. xx
new reader here and LOVE this so much. this is great.
Awesome thanks Kate!
Hi Jess, loved the IG video and the post! Do you prefer the dolce vita booties (from this post) than the Madewell Regan booties (from your capsule wardrobe post)? I’m in the hunt for brown leather ankle boots!
I actually don’t have the regan booties just linked to them in the capsule as a timeless style I like and would buy because they have really good reviews. The dolce vita are great, they are super comfortable but they do have some scuffing at the toe which seems like it’s because of the leather/shoe design. That said I wear them to death so I certainly recommend but just something to be aware of.
Thanks for your input Jess! I’m leaning towards the dolce vita anyway…. the leather looks much softer in pictures. Also, it’s on sale! 🙂
I can’t tell you how much I loved this post! Your style is on point, and although I want to buy a few things to complete my capsule wardrobe… this makes me want to get creative with the things I have and spend less! Thank you for putting this and the IGTV video together (I’ve already watched it 5 times)!! Love your style and your message xx
Thank you so much, so glad you liked it and it was helpful!
I wish this post had photos of your outfits!
LOVING this series! I have been trying to be very intentional with what I’m purchasing and struggle with the whole capsule thing — these posts have been fantastic!
Thanks again and looking forward to many more.
I wish you would post outfit photos. I don’t like having to click through all the links to see the items and i find photos easier to browse than a video. I hope you will look into doing outfit photos in the future.
