It’s that time again! Time to swap my summer clothes over for a warmer set. This Autumn I have decided to use these colours for my capsule wardrobe:
- Cerise Pink
- Dark Grey
- Lime Green
i decided on these colours a month or so ago so I could start making items of clothing for Autumn. I have also been through all of my clothes that I store away each season and picked out items which I like and which I want to be part of the capsule. I haven’t had to buy anything extra at all.
These are the items in my Autumn Capsule 2019

Purple velvet coat – I have had this maxi coat for several years but have only worn it occasionally. I have now decided to shorten it so that I get more wear from it.
