Fall 2021 capsule wardrobe

Fall 2021 capsule wardrobe from left: chunky cardigan sweater / beige puff sleeve tee (under$50) / long sleeve black tee (under $100) / pink scarf (under $100) / green asymmetrical hem pleated skirt / large hoop earrings (under $100) / green statement earrings / mint statement earrings (sold out, similar here) / bracelets (under $50, local designer) / black jeans / dark wash distressed jeans / (not pictured-was wearing when I took the photo-oops!) snake buckle belt / (not pictured-puff sleeve black tee )

In case you noticed, my fall capsule wardrobe is trimmed down this season. This is due to the fact that I lost close to thirty pounds since April. Yes, you read that correctly! I have lost exactly twenty-eight pounds since April.

My weight has been creeping up over the last several years, and my doctor finally read me the riot act. She put me on a diet! I am glad she did, because I am back to my normal weight, and my older clothing fits! That being said, the clothing pieces you have seen me wear over the past few years are all way too big on me now.

My hope in moving towards capsule wardrobes each season was to reduce my purchases, and have a more sustainable closet. In keeping with this spirit, my fall capsule wardrobe is small this season because I am starting over! I have had to purchase new jeans and tee’s which fit me. So the next couple seasons, I will be re-building my wardrobe; little by little! The clothing that is too big now, I am donating to charity.

So, in order to start over, I purchased these dark wash denim jeans earlier this month, as well as these black jeans for the cool weather season. They are perfect for the fall season, and will also work well into the holiday and winter seasons.

I love fashionable tee’s! My fabulous, puff sleeve tee’s from the last few seasons are way too big now; I look like I am swimming in them. Therefore, I need to re-build my tee wardrobe. I am starting with this beige, puff sleeve tee which is ideal for fall, and also this long sleeve black tee since it is basic, and will carry me through fall, winter, and the holiday season.

What if I need to dress up? Ah! My dresses are huge, so if I need a dress, I will buy one when the time comes. In the meantime, this pleated green skirt, with an asymmetrical hemline, is perfect for the fall and holiday seasons. I love the movement it offers and the emerald green hue. I hope to pick up another top to wear with it this season, but in the meantime, I will wear this puff sleeve black top, and a pair of heels.

Oversize, chunky cardigan sweaters are hotter than hot this fall season, so this neutral hued cardigan will be perfect for keeping me cozy during the cooler months. Love it!
