Each Saturday, I have been sharing my experiences as I take the 10x10 spring capsule wardrobe challenge. Well, I'm three weeks in now, and I am still hanging in there with the challenge, but I did have to make a little switcheroo...
My 10x10 Swap Out
As you can see, in one of my pictures, I have added a second, outer layer. Though this cardigan is not one of my ten choices, I put it in the closet to wear on any chilly days we might have. Surprisingly, we have had a few!
And it has been happening so often that I decided during the week to swap out a top I hadn't worn so that I could make this rust cardi an actual part of my 10-piece capsule.
I swapped out my oatmeal-colored button down top. I figured that if I hadn't worn it yet, there was a good chance I wasn't going to, and I might as well exchange it for something the weather had proven I would keep wearing.
Here's What I Wore this Week
My Favorite Outfits this Week
Of my outfits this week, I'd say my favorites were the cool-morning ones with my rust-colored cardigan and my denim jacket. And the terracotta striped top layered over my olive one.
I really like layering, but just can't always do it with the painfully hot temps in the warmer seasons.
What was your favorite outfit this week?
By the way, I apologize for the sometimes grainy quality of my pics. My photographer, also known as beloved son, is not always available. :)
But sometimes, I am wearing even more vibrant color than the picture indicates. For example, the picture above, that I took with my iPad, is a close-up of the same outfit in one of the other pics, & I am wearing four colors.
Can you tell I'm thinking, "please let this one not look ridiculous," and that it wasn't my first try? A photog, I'm not!
See you tomorrow!
Unless I am sick (like January’s 3-week monster flu), I don't wear the same thing during the day that I slept in the night before. Even if I am staying at home, I feel better if I change from one thing to another.
But I have chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, so there are lots of days when I don't feel like getting completely dressed, either.
What do you wear on those days?
I usually choose loungewear or pjs, and add a sweater.
My Favorite Homebody Outfit Formulas
One of my favorites is an idea I got from the year-round capsule wardrobe guide for moms that I got last year. I use a loungewear dress, instead of one I’d wear out, but the idea came from the book and it's one I really like.
I get to combine orange and red, which really brightens my day. It’s a fuzzy comfy orange button down cardigan that I wear with a red loungewear dress and fuzzy orange-and-red socks. This dress is midi length, but I also have a knee-length grey one, and two ankle length ones.
So I have a small loungewear capsule wardrobe that really makes those days more cozy and fun.
The casual mom capsule wardrobe guide is designed to help you create outfits that are comfy enough to wear at home, but that you can easily leave the house in, too. The idea behind it is to upgrade your daily uniform so that you feel more confident and presentable each day.
But I believe it's also perfect for homebody homeschool moms like me who spend several days a week at home with no particular place to go (as the song says).
Check it out here, if you're interested.
And let me know in a comment what you like to wear on days when you know you won't be leaving home.
See you next time!
