This dress was probably the most dressy piece in my Winter capsule…. And it was only $5! Hooray for excellent thrifted finds! Sadly, I only wore this dress a few times this Winter. But although I may not post it on the blog, I will absolutely be pulling it out again this Summer when wedding season begins. As a female wedding photographer, I’ve always struggled finding the right dress to wear, so when I do, I feel like I need to tell everyone because I just get so excited :) This dress is the perfect amount dressy and practical with it’s fitted form (so no surprise gust of wind can get the better of me) and three-quarter length sleeves (so I don’t overheat on those sweltering hot August days).

Also, question to my fellow Capsule wardrobians (I think I just made that word up) out there: What do you do about work clothes? Do you count those as part of your capsule or are they separate? How does that work?

This is one of those really amazing ‘looks really well-thought out and planned but really only took five minutes to just throw on and head out the door’ outfits and I really really love that about of it. Because, let’s be honest: everyone has those days, especially in the Wintertime, where you look in your closest and don’t even want to try putting together an outfit.
