Spring Capsule 2018

Thursday, April 05, 2018

The first quarter of the year went by so fast that putting this together was a bit last minute (as in started and finished on April 1st!) Looking at it now I've realised that I've only included one coat, and that's a denim jacket so this might not be my most successful capsule to date.

I have two spaces 'free' because I'm going on a charity shop rummage with Sophie soon and we always come home with armfuls of pre-loved items.

I have some old favourites here - my yellow maxi, my khaki trousers, my khaki mini skirt and some new purchases - a red floral skirt, a floral skater dress, and ditsy print shirt. It's a real mixture of old and new, new and pre-loved. And hopefully a good mix (if we ignore the lack of a proper jacket) to see me through the cooler days of early spring and the (hopefully) warmer days of late spring.

This time around I quickly put together a chart of possible outfits - the things you do on a wet Sunday afternoon! I'll be ticking them off to see how many I wear. I hope it'll be warm enough for me to wear the 23 different outfits with shorts here - we can but hope, right?

How are you ringing the changes for spring?

  1. I hope you get to wear your shorts.

    It's chucking down here so I definitely wouldn't want to make do with just a denim jacket. My rain coat is essential whenever it's too warm for my winter coat!

    1. I've just been out in cardigan, no coat necessary. It won't last but it's always lovely when it happens :)

  2. I love that there is lots of colour in your Spring capsule. But no coat? Maybe you'll find a good Spring coat when out charity shopping with Sophie? xxx

    1. And yet yesterday I managed to wear a very colourless outfit! I'll keep my eye open for a spring jacket, as I don't really have one, but if the rain persists I'll just have to add a coat.

    1. the sun can be deceptive, but it is getting warmer, we're going in the right direction :)
      I love buying things at this time of year in readiness for sunnier weather, it feels really positive

  4. No coat? I'm the eternal optimist but I'm still in gloves, a coat and boots here!
    I'm dying to wear my 1970s denim jacket but I feel like it's a while away yet.
    Good to see the return of the green skirt! xxx

    1. I've had to add a mac, I couldn't do without a coat at all - bit of an oversight! I'm hoping by the time May comes around the denim jacket will be out and in frequent use. Looking forward to getting the green skirt on again :)
