There has been a major love affair with zara lately. I love all the basics the brand has to offer. Recently, I picked up this beautiful and cozy coat from zara, perfect for a Los Angeles winter. The grey color goes with almost everything and the quality is nice, especially for the price of $69.90. Is it just me, or has the price of clothing gone a bit insane? Recently I have seen items at Forever 21 for $80!
My everyday style is pretty casual. Comfort is important to me and I love how the coat looks over my everyday basics of boyfriend jeans, (passed down from Kristina) a green H&M top, and Steve Madden booties from last year.
My necklace was a gift from Kristina, she made this. I am trying to convince her to reopen her etsy shop. Love the delicate gold chain and crystal attached. It just adds a little something to the outfit.
After donating and discarding 90% of my wardrobe this past summer, I have been very careful in what I want to purchase. I feel that my style has shifted a bit and I want to make sure I love every piece I put into my closet. For this season, I am also going to try and focus on a capsule wardrobe. This means for my day to day wardrobe, I will look at every piece I own, decide what to keep, what not to keep, what to put away for next season, and what I need to add to my wardrobe for the next three months. I will not buy anything else, till the next season. I hope this keeps my closet organized, condensed, and that I will actually get use out of my clothes. It was embarrassing how many pieces I donated with tags on them.
Have you done a capsule wardrobe before? What are your thoughts on them?
I also feel that if I am limiting my wardrobe to pieces I know I will wear and have put thought into, I won’t feel bad for spending a little more on each piece. Quality is what I am looking for. When I find something I love, I want it to last, so why not spend a little more on a pair of boots that I will wear for years?
