Winter ’16 (Capsule 8)

My Winter 2016 Capsule – June to August

It’s winter, it’s cold and the jackets are IN!

Comments

I’m still having problems mixing between “home clothing” and “work clothing”. I’ve upgraded my capsule with a number of beautiful dresses suitable for work, and I’m very happy with them, but they’re not quite casual enough for home.

Consequently, I’m finding I’m still wearing jeans, t-shirts and hoodies as my “daily uniform” around the house. This will shift as I change to full time work in a few weeks’ time, but for now finding a happy place between the two is hard.

I’m currently still relying heavily on t-shirts, but I think I need to upgrade to better tops for home. Perhaps that’s the answer. I don’t know. In the meantime, I’m quite content.
