The sun is bright and the flowers are blooming- I’m so excited it’s spring! Last year we had a pretty cold and rainy spring but this year looks like it’s going to be beautiful. I planned this capsule optimistic about good weather but also have options for the cooler days which will likely happen.
Unfortunately there wasn’t time to film outfits for this video, but I might try to do a lookbook or I’ve been thinking of doing the 10×10 challenge again. If you’re interested in either of those, please comment on the video and let me know! :)
The pieces I chose for this capsule:
Beige cardigan – very old
Gold jacket – thrifted
Grey cardigan – thrifted
Pants & Shorts
Beige flared skirt – DIY
Floral pencil skirt – thrifted
- I’ll also be adding this linen skirt (in charcoal) but it hasn’t arrived yet. I got it to replace my black skirt.
Tunic & Dresses
Denim jacket – thrifted
Green oversized jacket – DIY
Jacquard cape – vintage
Blue backpack – Matt & Nat – I used to support them but recently was very disappointed to learn of their extensive use of PVC (a very unsustainable vegan material) instead of PU which I thought they used. I’ve also emailed them and reached out through social media to learn more about their manufacturing and never got a proper response. I’ve removed them from my brand directory and in the future will try to find other options. I hope they will improve this though and become more transparent because they do make some lovely, high-quality bags and I would like to support them. :(
Beige cross-body bag – Angela Roi
Black wide-brim hat – thrifted
In total there are 31 pieces, plus I will be adding the skirt when it arrives. I also might add my second pair of jeans if the weather happens to cool down, but trying to be optimistic! The transitional seasons (fall & spring) I find can be tricky because in Cologne it’s difficult to predict what the weather will be like so I aim to have lots of layering options.
If you don’t know I generally follow Project 333 guidelines, but I don’t include jewellery or belts. Also as per the guidelines underwear, sleep and lounge clothes, and athletic clothing are not counted.
Hope you have a lovely spring! xx
