The Good Things: January

January Instagram Grid FavoritesThis year I want to get back into the habit of sharing some more personal posts here on the blog with the purpose of you getting to know me better! If you’ve been around for a while, you might remember that I used to share a monthly recap and goal list. In 2017 I’m starting something along the same lines, but a little bit different.

Especially with all that is going on in our world at the moment, it’s easy to get bogged down and forget all of the awesome things that are happening in our personal circles.

So I present to you The Good Things; a monthly list of memories that brought me joy.

Accessorizing my Winter Capsule Wardrobe

Winter Accessories FlatlayI recently shared how I want to experiment with more minimal outfits while wearing my winter capsule wardrobe (coming soon, by the way! I’m waiting on one more item to arrive!) For me, part of experimenting with clean and minimal looks means learning how to accessorize better. There are so many people who accessorize effortlessly, but I’m just not one of them. I struggle to make things look purposeful and laid back, so this season I’ve chosen a few pieces to focus on. Hopefully by the end of winter, I’ll be more confident in my skills with accessories. This season I’ll be specifically focusing on scarves and handbags.

Let’s get accessorizing!

My Winter Style Experiment

Winter Capsule Wardrobe ExperimentFinding my personal style has been tricky over the year because I love so many different styles aesthetically. Recently, however, I had an interesting realization. I had just gotten home from running errands and was wearing a pretty standard casual outfit for me: jeans, a striped tee, and a jacket. After hanging up my green jacket, I walked by a mirror and happened to think to myself that I really liked what I was wearing: my jeans and my striped shirt with a simple gold necklace. Here’s what I realized: I feel 10 times more confident and myself in a more minimal and neutral outfit right now. This felt surprising to the girl who loves floral prints and unique colors, but it gave me an idea.

For the duration of my winter capsule wardrobe, I am going to experiment with wearing what I would call “minimalist style.”

Simple outfits, a subtle color palette, and clean lines.

Seasonless Capsule Wardrobe Basics

Casual Capsule Wardrobe OutfitI love wardrobe staples that can be mixed up across all four seasons, and today I wore an outfit that was entirely made up of pieces I wear all year! Basics are awesome for pairing with statement pieces, but I also love how they look together for a more simple and casual look. Today’s look is a combination of a striped shirt, anorak jacket, and jeans. These are pieces I always have in my capsule, so today I’m sharing how I style them for the autumn and winter seasons!

Because basic doesn’t have to mean boring, does it?
