ok, I know this has sort of been done before in a few posts so sorry.


all of my winter/ autumn clothes are in storage ( we are living with my inlaws, new house fell through...).

I'm short.

I don't really know 'what' to wear, a year ago I was shopping in top shop/river island etc in minis now it just doesn't feel right :-S

I've been looking online at Boden, mint velvet but I'm not sure...

Can someone help me find a capsule wardrobe, for a 37 year old short person. I have a job where I can wear smart casual, I guess I'm a modern/classic dresser. I need pretty much everything which is why I'm thinking capsule wardrobe. I'm blond, olive/yellowy skin...

Help please!!!

Do you not think the 2 middle ones are quite summery?
Budget, pretty flexible really. Probably wouldn't want to spend more than about£600 ish...

Decent indigo skinny jeans
skinny cords are very in this winter here
Couple of silky/blouse type tops (oasis/warehouse)
couple of breton type tops (Zara £10 each, wash brilliantly)
couple of little cardis to wear over tops
couple of day dresses )I like Great PLains here

yeah, they are but you can always team them up with nice black/brown jacket and boots

Gap have 20% off and free delivery, maybe a good place to pick up jeans/trousers and some knitwear?
