Spring Capsule 2017

This past week had some delightfully spring like weather and it got me really excited to start my spring capsule on Wednesday! Then the cold came back with a vengeance this weekend which makes sense because, you know, winter. This capsule will see me from March until May so I have lots of layering type pieces.

I brought back some of my favorite chambray shirts, added in more dresses, and cut down on my number of shoes. I also noticed that my color pallet is becoming more consistent, lots of grey (of course), some blacks, some white, and pops of blue this season.

I mainly pulled from my existing pieces to create this capsule. I did buy a couple new tops from ThredUp, some new spring booties, and three new pairs of pants. Expanding my pants was my main focus for this capsule. I bought two pairs of pants from Everlane, some cropped ponte pants in black and some blue wide leg cropped pants. The other pair of pants I bought were from ThredUp and are also wide legged. I am excited to experiment with some wide leg pieces in my spring capsule! I have been inspired by some great looks on Instagram from some fellow style bloggers and am eager to try out some new outfits.

Here are my 37 pieces for my spring 2017 capsule. Shoes 5, dresses 5, bottoms 8, tops 19.

I’m lounging around in my leggings and not leaving the house today, but I got an early birthday present from my BF and wanted to show it off. This swing trench from Everlane is a great coat to transition to spring.

Mainly working from home aside from some errands. Loving my new glasses! I used to never want to wear my glasses out, ever since getting contacts at age 13. However, as I’m getting older I’ve been embracing them more. Especially since sometimes contacts are just not that comfortable.
