Capsule 62: The Hills are Alive...
I’m channeling my inner Maria this week, minus hiding from the Nazis and corralling 7 kids. So basically just her outfits. I’d take the cool photo backdrops too, since we’re going there.
This is my most favorite outfit in this whole capsule, probably even this whole month. That’s easy to say when it’s the beginning of the month 😉 but, I do adore it! I love the crisp white shirt with the slightly sexy librarian skirt. It makes my book loving heart flutter. I feel like Belle, if Belle loved neutrals and didn’t wear that bright canary yellow....
This is a look I am learning to love. I was all about (and still am about) long drapey cardigans. But come to realize, they just don’t look that great with midi skirts or the new wide leg pants. So, I am on the hunt. This one does okay in a pinch, but I would like a better quality one.
Who would have thought a prison gray look could be so chic? Gray is the new black, amirite? Come on Netflix, give me a special. I’ll make it a fun twist of Sound of Music crossed with Orange is the New Black, guaranteed to delight and horrify families across the world.
I wish I had a before picture of this outfit for y’all! I tried it on with a longer cardigan that was more structured, and I felt like I was drowning in fabric. This shorter length honestly makes all the difference in the world, visually and physically.
I started the week on a high note, but I did not go out on one. I hated this outfit, plain and simple. It felt like oversized pajamas my dad wears, and personally, that’s not a look I love on myself. I would have tucked the shirt, trust me I’m a tucker. But, it has a seam that made it look very odd when tucked slightly below your waist. Curse manufacturers and their design choices.
Overall, though, I think I learned a lot about what I like and don’t like in my style this week. Until next week, lovelies.
