Repeating outfits, green washing and alternatives for donating clothes.

It’s too cold to think about being stylish.
So today’s outfit is technically not from my capsule wardrobe. Continue reading
One of the things I enjoy about going back to work is not only the ability to have adult conversation, but as I work in the CBD I also get to do some people watching and get inspiration from the stylish ladies that work in the vicinity.
I don’t know why I hadn’t started this earlier; it would make sense given that I don’t post all of my capsule wardrobe outfits on the blog (but I post pretty much all of them on Instagram), but only now have I realised how it would be good to do a quick review of all of them here too.
For Outfit 3 of my capsule wardrobe challenge I wanted to bust out the off-the-shoulder top I bought while I was on holiday in the Philippines.
I can’t believe it’s November already. Why, in only a few weeks it’ll be Christmas and then before you know it, it’ll be 2016 and then all of a sudden the kids are going to university. How time flies when you’re not getting much sleep.
Once again it seems I didn’t think the capsule wardrobe much through when considering possible events during the month of November. This month is such a great month for catching up with friends for drinks because you can forget about it in December – people are too busy with Christmas parties and end-of-year celebrations to see you. Not that I actually get to go out these days mind you, but I have fond memories of going out for casual Friday drinks at the Opera Bar under the Sydney Opera House – what a view (nasty drink prices there though).
Of the shoe choices in my 13 item capsule wardrobe, the lace up sandals are probably the most appropriate for a night out drinking (and why would you want to wear heels when you spend most of the night standing? Well, that’s my experience at the Opera Bar anyway). I decided to use the sleeveless jacket as kind of like a sleeveless blouse, so keeping it tied up, but I put a pretty bralette under it so it peeks out and gives a sexy yet subtle detail. The black skirt is in suede so it would go nicely in both casual and dressier venues. I find gold to be more formal than silver so hopefully this makes up for the flat shoe choice; I also love statement cocktail rings to really pack a punch (pun not intended).
