Yesterday was both my WW meeting and the start of our Ultimate season. I forgot to plan for Ultimate when I did my April capsule planning - oops. My usual plan is to have light clothes (for weighing in) that I can easily change out of at the field.
Instead of wearing my board shorts, t-shirt, runners and ball cap out in public (at my meeting and at the diner), I feel better about myself because I'm putting my best foot forward and making an effort to look nice. I even have a "bare bones" make-up bag for making myself more presentable after the game. It just helps keep me feeling more positive.
This was the closest I could find for a weigh-in/quick-change outfit in this month's capsule:
I last wore the top here (last outfit), and the skirt here. To keep me warm I covered up with my python-printed leather jacket (not part of the capsule as outerwear).
here), which ended up feeling pretty good after wearing cleats for 2.5 hours.
Jacket (Bebe, thrifted), t-shirt (INC, thrifted), skirt (Plum), belt (Gap), shoes (Enzo Angiolini, thrifted), necklace (Shi Studios).
Our game of Ultimate went well, and a bunch of us did lunch afterwards. It was a lovely sunny day, so I wandered around town after lunch and browsed through a few thrift stores and one consignment store.
Here's what I got (you can click on any of the pictures to embiggen)!
|Contrast, thrifted, $5.00|
I found this blouse on consignment. It's actually a really small animal/leopard print.
|Express, consignment, $18.00|
I found this blouse at a thrift store last weekend while looking for steampunk items:
|Guess, thrifted, $13.50|
I was really excited by this jacket:
|Not the Same Jeans, consignment, $30.00|
Here's a shot of the back:
I couldn't resist this turquoise leopard sweater:
|Precis, consignment, $26.00|
I found this great dress:
|No label, thrifted, $8.50|
I wasn't 100% sold on this velvet cotton jacket, but I can't resist decorations.
|Ann & J Concepts, thrifted, $9.50|
I successfully resisted a lot of things I might have purchased in the past, by focusing on items that I really liked and thought I could use in the (sort of pre-planned) capsules for May-September. What do you think of the new purchases?
