Well, actually, I didn’t have those shoes last year. Or the coat. Well, this is unraveling quickly. :)
But the sweater and the leggings — yes! I was so proud when I came up with this outfit last year. Remember, that was before I had any real sense of my own style. So you could maybe say that this was the first Unfancy outfit ever.
And it still holds up. I love that.
I cannot tell you how excited I am to be moving into this next phase of maintaining my wardrobes instead of building them. More on that here if you missed it. I’m just as curious as you are to see if it really works, you know?
But with the way my winter capsule worked out, well … it’s looking good for maintenance mode. Outfits like these, that still hold up a year later, make me excited. I see that glimmer of, “It’s working!”
I know. You’re thinking, “Caroline, it’s just one year later — don’t get too excited.”
Sorry — can’t help it. Besides, it’s Christmastime. I get excited about everything.
Can you believe next week is the week before Christmas? Like Zooey Deschenel, I’ll never outgrow the thrill of Christmas day. Here’s another holiday playlist for you. This one is made up of personal favorites, so it’s less polished and more random, but if you want to hear the Christmas music that makes my heart smile, this is it.
