I am very proud of my having put together a capsule wardrobe over the past year. I have had a winter and a summer wardrobe with two different pairs of trousers (multiples of!) and different tops ets. This is a massive departure from my usual M.O. Which was, at best, chaotic.
Because of the initial outlay most of my stuff is fairly cheap and is now starting to get worn and bobbled. My plan is to update gradually with the odd better quality bit here and there, hoping that they will fit well and last.
So, where to look? I am a FT working mum with 3 under 6.5, so online shopping is the only way.
I would say my style is slightly edgy : I have been wearing mostly black all summer with skinny rolled-up jeans or trousers. Love these as I am sporty so I can jump on a bike or pull on wellies. I will probably be looking for some long-sleeved tops for wearing with skinny jeans and big boots in the autumn. Maybe a going out top or two.
