Outfit : Em’s Capsule #3 | Basic Instincts

November 3, 2015

The biggest thing the capsule wardrobe experiment is teaching me : Embrace the Basic.

I like being basic. It’s ok to be basic!

The hardest challenge I face in my wardrobe is that I am always drawn to shiny, sparkly, special things. But when it comes to getting dressed day in and day out, I don’t really want to wear those things. I get sick of them, and fast. This is my eternal struggle: I want prints! Color! Embellishments! What I really like is more of a blank canvas. I want to be able to settle into how I feel that day without sparkly things telling me I need to be more fabulous.

This whole experiment is trying to unearth the way that dressing makes me feel. I can tell even just by looking at these images that this outfit makes me feel good. It makes me want to move. And play. That’s the kind of woman I am. Embellishments get caught on stuff. I like minimalism. I want timeless. I want basic.

And that’s ok.

    Love it! Looks like my type of outfit. I’m definitely drawn towards the most simple basic outfits. I often feel like the one who put zero effort into their outfit and look rather drab. How do you keep the minimal look without looking uber lazy?
