There’s been a shift in the weather in the last week or so here in good ol’ Lancaster! The nights are cool…chilly, even. We went an entire day without air conditioning this week (proof that our warm house has truly begun to cool down). I couldn’t be more excited that Autumn is just around the corner.
And with the dropping temperatures comes the motivation to start working on my next capsule wardrobe! Though according to the Un-fancy calendar, September is the third month of Summer, I’ve decided to switch up my schedule for Year Two. I’m calling September/October/November my Fall this time around, and rearranging the other three seasons accordingly. I just think it makes more sense for the climate I’m in. September is cooler than June here, right? I know it will still be tricky to have enough warm-weather things for September PLUS cold-weather things for November, but I’ve made some mid-season swaps every time so far anyway. I’m starting to accept the fact that that’s what needs to happen, at least at this stage of the game.
So, that means a new capsule wardrobe debut is coming soon! I’ve been pinning away onto my inspiration board and you can check out what I have planned so far here. The count is around 28 at the moment, and I am kinda hoping to hit somewhere lower than 37 for the first time, this season. I have another Stitch Fix scheduled for next week (free personal styling service, anyone? read more here). And I’ve been doing some online browsing this week for a few items on my shopping list: black midi skirt (maybe this one?), ankle boots, and cozy sweaters, since my cheap ones from last year aren’t looking too sharp. If you have any recommendations for me, please, comment away!
