I know I shouldn’t even bother using spring approaching as an excuse to window shop (especially during lent!) since spring is basically no different than winter here and it’s been constantly in the 70’s for a few weeks now. Anyway, I’m still loosely capsuling but have chilled back with counting pieces and being more rigid because I’ve gotten the hang of it pretty well. Daniel and I KonMari our house on the regular so we don’t have that issue of hoarding too much, which I need to give 100% credit to Daniel who taught me to not be so sentimental over things. Like I remember he wrote me this heartfelt introduction for a project during senior year of high school and a month later once we started dating I asked him for a copy and he was like, “I deleted it. We don’t need it. You remember how it made you feel.”. See, I basically live with Marie Kondo. (psssst, I still wish I had it…)
ANYWAY, I still have probably 75% of my capsule from last year so I could use a couple refresher pieces since prior to last year, my clothes had been pretty dated and lower quality so they wouldn’t last very long. Let’s look at the first outfit:
My body type isn’t the easiest to shop for. It’s basically curvy, athletic, petite all mushed together (such a lovely way to phrase it for my 19 month postpartum self…), so pretty much shopping isn’t very fun. But! Rompers usually look alright on me (and are comfyyyy), so that plus the u-neck plus the buttons down the front plus the yellow sweater make it dreamy for me. I’d love to see these pieces in person, but I’m 99% sure I’m going to end up with these shoes. I’ve been eyeing them for a while and they’ve been sitting in my madewell shopping cart for at least a month so…
Pre-K Pick Up
When I think of me chilling in heaven for eternity, I’d want to be wearing this exact outfit. Yes it’s very trendy. Yes it’ very cool mom standard, but I honestly am going to make this outfit a reality in my closet. It’s my most favorite dream pairing yet. And it’s completely realistic to my body type and day-to-day wearability.
Weekend Party Mom
Okay, I’ll be completely honest because I think this one may be a stretch because maxi dresses and vests that highlight my arms usually aren’t winners for me, but it has potential to work! It’s all just so, so cute. Plus I’ve been on the search for a pair of clogs and these fit exactly what I’ve wanted. I can picture myself wearing this at Atlas and Ollie’s pinterest perfect birthday parties, with a perfectly decorated cake I baked from scratch surrounded by $100 worth of decorations, and the kids peacefully playing a party game in our backyard. lololol, but I could be wearing this.
So what do you guys think? Anything I should stop swooning over? Anything I should swoon over instead??
