I’ll be honest: white jeans are not the most practical thing to wear in New York City. It’s a dirty place, and when you wear white it gets dingy. But wearing white, especially in this city even when it’s dreary, makes me happy. So I do it. I just set my expectation that I will most likely have to bleach it after the first wear. I go through a lot of bleach.
Now that I’m in the second season of my Capsule experiment I’ve noticed that the pieces in my wardrobe are more transferable between the seasons. Nothing is new in this outfit. The shoes are at least 6 years old. The white jeans are hand-me-downs from Em, and my silk blouse has carried me through a few seasons.
But this is why I’m doing the Capsule. Maybe I have less pieces, but I have more things I really love, that look good on me, and I know I feel good in. So now it’s more of a mix-n-match game for me. And I must say; it’s been pretty fun.
Plus who doesn’t love a yummy warm sweater on a chilly spring day? When I’m all bundled up in it I just want to snuggle up and watch movies and drink hot chocolate!
