The sheer tights are BACK, they weren't gone for too long at all. Granted it is still a little too cold to wear them at the moment, but I am Northern and therefore quite hardy to the cold and also an idiot who is sometimes willing to suffer. I wanted to go for a super vintage look with them, so what better than my favourite vintage blazer. I have had this for a while now and I think longtime readers will know this pops up on here pretty regularly.
I have been thinking more and more about how I almost fall into having a capsule wardrobe while actually having a ridiculously large one. I go back to the same pieces I love over and over, and I wonder if I will ever be brave enough to properly clear out the majority of what I have. So much of what I hold onto is because I might want to wear it one day again soon, rather than knowing I will. Really, I go back to the same things over and over. This exact skirt and knit combo has been on the blog a few times already, and it's one I have reached for for several evenings out. So while I do have other black minis and knits, really I could get rid and just stick with these ones, which I am sort of doing anyway? I think in some ways it's confidence thing, that having all these options might make me more sartorially daring, but in reality I know what I like and always opt to slowly add new things after a lot of deliberating.
Honestly, I don't think I will ever manage to have a capsule wardrobe - I do seem to want the options even if I don't use them. But I think I may at least take a few black knits down to the charity shop, which would be a baby step in the direction of not almost being crushed by my denim and knit collection when it falls out my wardrobe on a daily basis.
