WCC Year 3, Spring: Day 1

I’m half-assedly participating in Jane’s spring capsule wardrobe challenge. For the previous capsule wardrobes, I planned everything in advance. This time, I’m just flying by the seat of my pants (or skirt). Stay tuned to see if I can create a unique and work appropriate outfit each day while following the rules.

Cardigan, The Limited. Dress, vintage, thrifted, and shortened. Tights, We Love Colors. Shabooties, Madden Girl (Skout).

Clothing Items (3 of 10)
1. Dress
2. Sweater
3. Shabooties

Accessories (1 of 5)
1. Tote (not pictured)

P.S. This is my marching band pose.

P.P.S. This is the sweater that totally blew my budget last month.

That sweater is amazing! It looks really nice with the more feminine skirt too.

Adore the sweater, remember - as they say in Gilmore Girls - a budget is just guesswork. Therefore blowing it for something so fantastic is OK ;)

Love the pose too!

I also picked my items hastily, without trying them on or combining them thoroughly. 'I'm feeling like I might be kind of screwed by Friday. Especially since I was inadvertently working with eleven items til I realized I had one extra last night. Ah well, we shall see!
That band jacket sweater thing is AWESOME. Worth. Every. Penny.
