Your Spring Capsule Wardrobe 2015

Your Spring Capsule Wardrobe 2015


Stepping away from the interiors and the venues for a moment, this month I'm letting you into my wardrobe.

I've completely changed the way I shop and I'm going to admit it, my husband has been responsible for said change. For those of you who've met my boy you'll know he's methodical, a thinker and always (frustratingly) right. He also has great style. So when I first saw his approach to shopping I was in awe, so much so I've now embraced the capsule wardrobe and the seasonal edit.

What does this mean...? Well, I now do a closet overhaul before each impending season to see what I love from last years haul, what needs replacing and what I'm coveting to change up my look whilst still working with the pieces I want to keep.

It also means that actually, on the whole, I spend far less on my clothes now because I've cut out the impulse purchases, freeing up more in the piggy-bank for the odd splurge! Huzzah!

Did I mention Mark was an Accountant once-upon-a-time...?

I'd describe my style as quite classic; I love muted tones, easy-to-wear shapes and statement pieces to jazz up an outfit. I also have a small number of shops I hit when in edit mode so expect a lot of the same when it comes to brands.

Anyway, here's my spring capsule wardrobe for 2015...

The Trench The BackpackThe SneakerThe Jogger

I started working from home back in 2013 and if truth be told I struggled with the concept of getting dressed. It seems I was rebelling against my corporate background, plus the novelty of wearing pyjamas ALL day was my version of a two-fingered salute. Well, it's 2015 now and whilst I've left behind the flannel I haven't quite given up on elasticated waistbands. Lo and behold the 'tailored' jogging pant. Get some. Trust me.

The BlouseThe RaincoatThe Dress

Currently loving Hush and all of their Spring looks, but I guess most importantly this brand has got me back into a dress! This Triangle dress is simple, comfy and I can see it lasting right through to Autumn just by switching up the styling.

The JewelleryThe JumpsuitThe 'IT' Shoe

Ok, here it is... By far my biggest splurge of the season and on shoes no less.

This is the Logo Lace from Russell & Bromley and whilst I nearly choked when I saw the price, I couldn't stop thinking about them. So nervously, I went back and made the purchase. Lace-up flats have been pretty hard-to-miss this season, but as R&B always put a classic spin on the 'right-now' looks, I'm thinking we've got lots of lovely years ahead together.

So there you have it... My Spring wardrobe. Whilst there's some budget-friendly pieces in there, there's certainly a few luxe pieces thrown in all made possible by shopping with a capsule wardrobe in mind and doing the seasonal edit.

Plus, I tend to keep a beady eye on Grazia for those 25% off Whistles moments!

So how do you shop...? Are you an impulse buyer...? Or do you plan your fashion purchases...?

I'd love to know...
