Winter is underway! Now that the holiday season has passed, it is time to put together my winter capsule wardrobe. Thank you for all the great feedback after I posted my holiday capsule wardrobe in early November. I’m so glad you enjoy this series! Since the holiday season shares roughly the same weather pattern as the winter season, my capsule wardrobe for winter is not very different from the holidays. The big difference is, instead of a focus on holiday green/red, this capsule wardrobe focuses on the color of 2020, which is Classic Blue! Yay!!

As you can tell, my casual, everyday capsule wardrobe for winter is almost identical to the one I showed you for the holiday season. The big difference is that I swapped the earrings, and changed the key color. The red tee and earrings have been replaced with their blue counter-parts; and the green scarf has been replaced with two blue ones. I have owned this light blue scarf, and this medium blue scarf for a few years now, so it was easy to add them into the rotation for the winter season. You probably don’t need two scarves for the season, unless you live somewhere really cold. I would recommend picking your favorite blue hue, and investing in one scarf.

As far as denim trends are concerned, we are still seeing cropped denim, skinny jeans, and boot-cut jeans in the new year. So, I am sticking with boot-cut and skinny since they are the most flattering styles on me. I also have a pair of leggings in my winter capsule wardrobe since they are comfortable; and ideal for ultra casual days.

When it comes to earrings, I put my sparkles away until a special occasion comes up, and for the next holiday season. I pulled out a pair of large, classic hoops for fun; and my blue earrings, and silver earrings for day-to-day wear. Stay tuned for another post about my winter shoe capsule!

Not every day is casual during the winter months, therefore, we all need a dressier winter capsule wardrobe for the office, dinner dates, and other occasions. Sometimes you can dress up jeans with high heel booties, and other times we need to ditch the jeans (gasp!) and put on a skirt paired with knee boots-for ultimate warmth on cold days.

This coat is an instant outfit enhancer! It can make any pair of denim look structured, and it adds a dressy vibe when thrown over almost anything. The belt helps give it shape too. Love it!

These knit tops are also great for dressing up a casual look. They have a more put-together look than a long sleeve tee, and can instantly elevate any look. I’m looking forward to dressing up this season using this capsule wardrobe!

Winter around here does not last too long, so this should carry me thought January and February. How long does winter last where you live?

Hey baby, it’s cold outside! When it’s the busy holiday season, and it’s freezing outside, I need to be comfortable! These leggings, paired with this twin set, are perfect for combating the cold while maintaining optimal comfort.

I know, I know, leggings aren’t pants; but, these leggings are incognito. Can you see the shiny sheen on the fabric? It gives them a festive holiday vibe while disguising the fact that they are just leggings. People think they are pants. haha, at least that’s what I would like to believe! haha

Hope you are having a fabulous holiday season and thanks for stopping by!

Casual holiday party outfit and vintage vibes

It is holiday party season! This year, my friends and family members are hosting casual holiday parties. I love casual events because it means my holiday party outfits can be comfortable! This green sequin top, and these boot-cut jeans, are part of my holiday capsule wardrobe. This top is so much fun, and it can be dressed up, or down, according to the occasion. It’s perfect for dressing up a pair of comfy jeans; and the green sequins is holiday ready! Love that!

My black and gold booties are comfortable for standing and walking, plus the gold gives them a holiday touch. I love the festive look! The key to a good capsule wardrobe is to have one, inexpensive piece which is seasonal, and combine it with pieces in your closet that are seasonless. This sequin top, which is priced under $50, pairs well with basic bottoms and classic accessories in order to create a holiday-ready look. I love saving money!
