The new year is here! Since things are still locked down, I am keeping life very casual in the new year. I’m loving these comfortable and casual lug sole boots; also being referred to as ‘combat boots’ this season-which is a huge trend. They are great for walking, and for running around town doing errands. I find myself reaching for them almost every time I leave the house! They are great in the rain too since they are water resistant. Love that!

Oversized sweaters are always cozy, and this one is no exception. I love sinking my hands inside the sleeves for warmth, and having room to layer my clothing underneath on a cold day. This sweater has been a huge go-to this season! Of course, I have been wearing these jeans quite often since early fall, love them!

I wore this outfit the other day to wander around Santana Row with my family. We really needed to get out of the house! We window shopped, sat on fluffy sofas at ZGallerie, and bought boba tea. It was nice and relaxing; always love hanging out on Santana Row!

Winter 2021 capsule wardrobe

casual winter 2021 capsule wardrobe

casual winter 2021 capsule wardrobe from top left: ivory sweater  / pink long sleeve tee (under $15) / sparkling earrings (under $50) / blue and gold statement earrings / bead bracelets / destroyed denim jeans (under $50) / black belt / grey scarf (under $100) / blue sweater (on sale under $100) / burgundy long sleeve tee (under $15) / black jeans (under $50) /

Well, as you can see, my capsule wardrobe for this season is really paired down. California has gone back into lock-down, so I don’t need anything dressy, or overly trendy this season. It appears we will be locked down into January, and since winter only lasts through early February here, there isn’t a need for anything other than a casual capsule wardrobe. I will start to transition to spring in February since temperatures will start to become mild.

My winter 2021 capsule wardrobe has everything I need in an outfit when I leave the house. A cozy sweater, comfortable jeans, and a tee. This ivory sweater is a fabulous investment piece which can be worn for many winters to come. The blue sweater is also an investment, although it’s trendier silhouette lends it to ‘three winter seasons’ max status. The fabulous part is that my blue sweater comes in a variety of colors and it’s on sale for under $100. Love that!

Normally I would incorporate the color of the year into my winter capsule wardrobe, since it’s the first capsule of the year. This year is a little different since I am not a huge yellow fan, when it comes to clothing. I am going to wait until spring to see how to incorporate it into my accessories. When it comes to clothing, I will use the grey as an accent color. If you haven’t already heard, yellow and grey are the color of 2021.

I decided instead of yellow, I would continue with grey as an accent and mix together berry and blue hues for the winter season. These are staple colors in my wardrobe, and I always gravitate towards them no matter the season. So, they seem right for the winter season this year.

Fall colors and a dress

The fall colors are here! If you live somewhere other than the San Francisco Bay Area, you might be wondering why I am excited about fall colors. After all, there is a chance you already enjoyed them a month ago, depending on where you live. Here in California, we are getting our fall colors now, and they are really pretty this year!

Thankfully the rain came after the trees started to turn; leaving the leaves on the trees in vibrant colors. The tree behind me will eventually have more color, giving it an ombre look. It’s a beautiful tree I enjoy watching every year. (please excuse my windblown hair-there was a mild storm going on when we snapped these pics)

The weather right now is perfect for transitioning from the fall season into the holiday season. While this look is classic and transcends season, it is a holiday outfit for me since it is new. I love this dress since I can wear it with boots for casual days, or high heels on casual days.

This year, we are living through a pandemic and sadly, a large portion of our economy is shut down. That being said, there are still a few things we can get dressed up for; as long as we pair our outfits with a fabulous mask. Stay safe!

We are allowed to eat outside at our local restaurants, enjoy outdoor activities such as fitness, hiking, and exploring, and lastly, we can shop in-store! This is fortunate since the holidays are coming up!

This dress, soft sweater, and these sparkling earrings are from The Perfect Provenance in Tiburon. It’s a fabulous shop where you find everything from fashion to home decor to holiday gifts! If you missed my previous post about the shop, be sure to check it out! Everything in-store is also online, so if you aren’t local, you can still enjoy holiday gift shopping there! Love that!

I’m looking forward to wearing this dress several different ways this season, as well as for several seasons to come. It has a classic look which transcends trends, and the flattering cut motivates me to wear it often. Love! You can find it online at ThePerfectProveance.com.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a fabulous holiday season!
