Capsule wardrobe challenge day 1

capsule wardrobe challenge day 1
Calton hill

Here’s outfit 1 from the Capsule Wardrobe Challenge. You can see why I said the dress is too small, there’s a big gapey bit on the chest where it is too tight. In a non-windy situation the scarf covered that up though.

I asked Dave to take my pictures for me for the Capsule Wardrobe week in our lunch break. We work in the same building but don’t usually have lunch together because we work different hours and I usually have my lunch at my desk with the Guardian G2. But for that week we went out and explored the little nooks and crannies in the area around the building. This was taken on Calton Hill, right at the East end of Princes Street. The view shown here is over the area we live in.

Outfit stats (very sweatshoppy today!):
* dress – h&m * vintage scarf – swap * belt – accessorize mega sale * top under – vero moda * bag – tula * shoes – clarks *

    Gorgeous view! Maybe since the dress is too tight, you could leave it unbuttoned kind of like a coat and belt it?

    Wonderful outfit, I love all the intense yellows with the pretty classic dress and the sweet shoes. It looks to me as though, as you wear another top underneath anyway, you could maybe just undo the top button.
