Capsule Wardrobe // February Summary


Hi Everyone! The end of February is nearly here which means it's time for my last monthly capsule wardrobe summary for winter! In fact, this is my last capsule wardrobe summary, period. In case you missed Friday's update, I'll be embarking on a new wardrobe journey I'm calling a "Simple Wardrobe" starting March 1. While I likely won't be posting any monthly summaries moving forward, I plan to post outfits here and there and share my successes and failures along the way. :)

Black Dot Dress (similar) ; J.Crew  //  Black Wool Cardigan (similar) ; Banana Republic  //  Black Sammie Boots (On sale!!) ; Madewell

Black on black on black. Wearing black from head to toe isn't exactly common for me, but I really like the way this outfit turned out. I kept things super simple with only a pair of pearl earrings, but you could really step it up with a bold necklace or patterned tights.

WineBlouse  LeatherSkirt  DVBooties

Wine Blouse (similar) ; Banana Republic  //  Faux Leather Skirt (similar) ; Loft  //  DV Booties (similar) ; Piperlime

Believe it or not, every single piece of this outfit made it into my Least Favorite list. Why? Fit and comfort. Each piece would be fine if I was still living in a sea of clothes, but I need pieces that are much more versatile moving forward. All of the pieces together every once in a while, though? I think this outfit is pretty great for the office.

Black Silk Blouse ; Everlane  //  Oatmeal Cardigan (similar) ; Forever 21  //  Wool Skirt (similar) ; J.Crew Factory  //  Black Sammie Boots (On sale!!) ; Madewell

There's nothing like throwing a bunch of neutrals together to see what you can come up with. A version of this outfit has been worn to the office nearly every week. It's comfy, warm, and versatile. Neutrals for the win!

LaceDress  GrayCardigan  TallBlackBoots

Black Lace Dress (similar) ; Banana Republic  //  Gray Cardigan ; Forever 21  //  Knee High Suede Boots (similar) ; Ellie Tahari

A fun belt worn over a sweater can give pieces in your wardrobe a whole new look. Here, the belt helps to emphasize the waist so I don't look like a giant sack. :) The tall boots are great for hiding a warm pair of socks and keeping me toasty.

WhiteTee  GrayCardigan    BlackJeans  LeatherJacket  MadewellBooties

White Drop Shoulder Tee ; Everlane  //  Gray Cardigan ; Forever 21  //  Black Skinny Jeans ; J.Crew  //  Black Leather Jacket ; Zara  //  Black Charlie Boots (similar) ; Madewell

It's all about layers when it's so chilly outside. I love that this gray sweater is soft and lightweight, so I can easily pair it under a structured jacket. Add in a warm scarf, and you're good to go. Oh, and yes. I did just wear black and navy together. I like it!

Thanks for following along on my monthly capsule summaries! If you have any requests moving forward, feel free to send them my way. I'll be switching things up a bit in the coming months, but I plan to continue outfit posts every so often to keep everyone in the loop on my new wardrobe endeavor. Happy hump day!
