Jun 30th - Outfit #31 - Last Day of Neutrals

I made it! Neutrals Month is over! I can't say I'm not glad to see it finish, but it's been a good experience overall. I'll elaborate more on the Lessons Learned in my monthly wrap-up (tomorrow or Monday). 

For now, this is what I wore to go to my WW meeting and to brunch with L afterwards.
Managed to squeeze a second wear out of this grey jacket (last worn here), and another wear of my Smoking Lily skirt (last worn here). My gladiator kitten heels (last worn here) have gotten a real workout this month!

Buh-bye, neutrals!
The pink cami is not part of the capsule. I'm wearing my Audrey Hepburn Scrabble tile pendant (picture here).

My bag:
Added my new-to-me black and white scarf to the bag
I don't really have too many bags, so the ones I do have get a lot of use. My criteria: enough pockets for keys, mp3 player, lipgloss, and room for a pair of shoes.

Jacket (Leshop, consignment), cami (Jackpot), skirt (Smoking Lily, thrifted), shoes (Enzo Angiolini, consignment), scarf (Karin, thrifted), bag (consignment).

Last night when we got home from dinner, there was a package waiting for me!
Wow, Megan Mae (of MMD), you are such a sweetheart! A lovely letter, this gorgeous chocolate brown leather belt (originally from Lynne at Practical Paralegalism), 3 buttonflowers, a citrus-themed pouch with two pairs of shiny silver earrings wrapped in some parchment tissue. I am honoured - thank you for this lovely surprise!

And...here's a preview of July's capsule:
Colour! It's not in order, as I've been pulling things into outfits for my first couple of weeks already. My colour theme is orange and turquoise, with some yellow, navy and black, with grey as the neutral.

I went with 7 pairs of shoes this month.
I had to get the 80s stained-glass shoes in!

Edit: In tallying my July choices, I noticed that I have only 29 items (you can count 22 hangers/items in the picture above, plus 7 pairs of shoes), so I have added...another pair of shoes! I couldn't do a month without a pair of Fluevogs (heavens!), so these ones have been added.

I'm excited to start wearing these items. Colour! Bring it on!

  1. Those shoes on the far right - WANT! So gorgeous! No Fluevogs? =)

    Megan Mae is so sweet. I love her button flowers so much. Two of those will be nice accessories for your July capsule.

    Happy Canada Day!

  2. Nope, no Fluevogs this month - I was tempted to pull the turquoise ones in again, though. Most of my Fluevogs are closed-toes and too hot to wear in the summer.

    The ones you like are Poetic License - I got them in Carnaby Street in London.

  4. Ah, an old-fashioned snail mail letter, what a treasure! I see some lovely things lurking in that July closet and I liked the stained glass shoes too.

  5. Goodbye neutrals! It was a lovely month. I still adore the shape of that blazer. It's very everyday steampunk.

    Yaay! I'm glad the package got to you and that you like everything. I fell in love with that belt, but even on the tightest possible setting it was too big. I hope you get some good wear out of it!

    Oooh I love the colors of your upcoming month. Looking forward to it. Your project has really made me look at my own wardrobe for more remix potential. I know I'm not utilizing it to the fullest potential so I hope to do that more.
