Welcome to Fall: My First Fall Capsule OOTD
It’s the first day of fall and I’m… exhausted?
I meant for that to be a much more upbeat introduction but I’m also all about transparency in my blog so yes – I’m exhausted. Work has been I N S A N E L Y busy and my personal life has felt the same way too. I haven’t really been doing a lot, but I’ve been feeling overwhelmed and stressed with the things I do actually do. I’m trying to take the right amount of time for myself and my mental health, but I feel a lot of guilt when I have to give excuses to people who can’t see a physical problem. I know a lot of you know exactly what I’m talking about – and that’s a blog post for another time.
Today however, I’m talking about my Fall Capsule Wardrobe. Originally I was going to start my Fall Capsule on October 1st, but I’m a stickler for the seasons and changed to utilizing my Capsule Wardrobe today! My outfit of the day today is a little collared mini dress from Forever21. I don’t wear a lot of patterns, like ever, but I figured this would be a good push out of my comfort zone and I’m pretty pleased with the result. My go-to combat boots have also made their way into my Capsule for Fall, and here’s a secret: you can tell if I’m exhausted (emotionally/mentally/physically) if I wear my combat boots to work. Some people have comfort blankets, I have comfort boots.
My Fall Capsule is made up of 55 items – including shoes but not including gym clothes. I’m really excited to share the outfits with you guys. You can find most of my outfit posts on my Instagram, using #officegothstyle, but I’m going to try and be better about posting them on here as well.
Ok, that’s it for today. Happy first day of Fall everyone! I’m going to head home after work, cook something comforting, snuggle my puppies and force my husband to hug me for a good five minutes. Normal Wednesday things.
