A Few Fall Essentials

As much as I might like to downsize, minimize, or simplify, I will never quite be that capsule wardrobe person. It's admirable that people can narrow their wardrobe down to a few essentials, but for me I'm a bit of a wardrobe maximalist. At this point I don't even need to acquire a lot of new pieces every season, just digging through the attic for my favorites from the past season yields me far more clothes than could ever be considered a capsule! But there are so many pieces I can't imagine parting with. Like my fox clothing collection--I love my fox clothes! I don't wear them much in spring or summer, but instead save them for autumn so they feel "fresh" when it does come time to pull them out of storage. And despite how many fox pieces I have, I always have my eyes out for more. I mean, since I do get a lot of wear out of my current foxy pieces, it just makes sense to "invest" in more since they will also probably become wardrobe favorites in heavy rotation. As a surprise to no one, my latest foxy acquisition comes from Modcloth--a shop which ticks off all the boxes on my fall essentials list: fox prints, corduroy everything, loads of mustard pieces (more on that in a later post!), and giant blanket scarves. The appeal of corduroy pieces for autumn even has me in another pair of overalls! This is a style of trouser I seem to enjoy since I somehow acquired three pairs of overalls--which seems like a real excess of overalls for someone who rarely wears trousers! So yes, that capsule wardrobe thing doesn't seem in the cards for me!

  3. You look so cozy. I can't wait for the weather to cool down more here so I can bundle up, too.

  5. Definitely similar to you with a maximalist wardrobe! I don't shop much and shop ethically when I do but I couldn't just keep to a few essentials I like to experiment with clothing too much, this look is super cute, I also love your fox clothing!

  6. Do your feet ever get cold? I have seen so many cute fox socks here in the U.S. (usually at Target).

  8. I love this, and you look gorgeous - but pleeeaaseee wear a helmet when cycling!! There are plenty of cute ones on the market if you don't like the mountain style ones. But it's better to have a clashing helmet than be dead. I speak from first and second hand experience!
    Other than that I mean I love everything about your blog and your style! :) <3

    1. Hi Haz, Oh definitely, but I actually often remove a "practical" element from my outfits when taking pictures. For example, in winter I sometimes don't wear a coat in pictures, even if there is snow on the ground, but I actually am wearing a coat when I'm outside. Pictures don't really reflect every element of reality b/c they are taken intentionally and have to be posed for so it's easy to remove an element that might clash just for the sake of a picture. :)

  9. haha! Yeah, your fox collection is great. I have a capsule wardrobe and I'm a capsule wardrobe blogger because I live in the San Francisco Bay and have a tiny apartment. There is no room for anything, which is why I've become a minimalist. To each his own. ;)

  10. You look crazy adorable!

    And I totally agree about minimal wardrobes. They look so nice and stress-free, but I've never quite been able to let do of my wardrobe :P

  11. Look looks so great as always! That ring is so cute! I'm a bit of capsule wardrobe person :D Just buy something I could wear anywhere, and add several dresses for special occasion. Love the idea about fox collection :D I used to have a skull collection when I was young.
    Love your photos~
