Calirado 7-Day Capsule

· Seven days in California and Colorado ·

August 14, 2017 4 Comments

I spent four days in California and three in Colorado in a mix of casual and business casual outfits pulled from one, small capsule.

After feeling uninspired by my business casual outfits earlier this month, I prescribed a capsule for myself over a seven-day trip. I started in Northern California, flew down to the LA area, and ended the week in Denver. During the weekdays, I gave seminars on creativity and innovation. On the weekend, I hung with my family, went thrifting, and visited Casa Bonita.

I kept this very small capsule interesting with pattern mixes and accessories: jewelry, belts, scarves, and a hat.

These are the capsule items:

Blazer (B Young)
Denim jacket (Jessica Simpson)
Long-sleeved tee (Jones New York)
Tee (Western Connection)
Tank (Old Navy)
Skirt (Carole Little)
Cropped pants (Banana Republic)

Booties (Vionic)
Loafers (ASOS)
Mules (Paprika)

Hat (World Market)
Sunglasses (Marc Jacobs)
Belts – 2 (Hadley Pollet and thrifted)
Scarves – 2 (DSW and swap)
Necklaces – 2 (Zad and Banana Republic)
Earrings – 2 (Charming Charlie and World Market)
Tote (Nordstrom Rack)

Capsule evaluation
Pros: All the pieces were comfortable to wear. I loved getting to mix red and pink. Because my seminar topic was creativity, I felt comfortable indulging in some advanced pattern mixing.
Cons: I disliked constantly adjusting the belt with the floral skirt. The skirt’s waistband is a little large and the elastic is shot, so a belt is “required.” I don’t mind dealing with the belt once a week, but three times in seven days tested my patience. (I ditched the belt for the fourth wearing. I hid the elastic with my jacket and hoped nobody would be tempted to “pants” me.)

    I really love all the ways you styled that skirt. It makes me want a find an eye-catching piece in my wardrobe and see all the different ways I can breathe life back into it!

      Since I see different audiences every day, I feel less self-conscious about wearing the same, statement piece four times in a week.
