Welcome to April! I am so excited to have another month of clothes! This should be a pretty challenging month, because I picked probably one of the hardest colour schemes ever: pink, purple and yellow.
Here's what I'll be wearing:
|Heh, my coworkers are going to freak when they see the yellow boots.|
Here are the bottoms:
|Yeah, those might be leather pants...|
No jackets this month, just two cardigans:
|They look like they're walking arm in arm.|
I have 3 dresses this time around:
They are all great layering pieces (and one is a really nice party dress worn on its own).
I'll highlight each piece as it comes up in the capsule as usual, but for now, let's get into the first outfit!
BAM! Let's start off April with a bang! And hey, it's Visible Monday, so head on over to Patti's!here) - I paid $30 in a consignment store for it. I've worn it 3 more times total since April 2010: here, here and here. Ha, I've only worn it with a neutral (denim) once.
This cardigan is new-to-me:
old marigold cashmere one, my old mustard cardi AND my pale yellow summer cardi. No pressure!
I love having a yellow cardigan, and this one is the nicest quality of all the ones I've owned over the years. It's Club Monaco and is a wool blend, so no pilling or fuzziness to it. I like the deep V-neck as well. It was $16.98 on consignment last month.
That's just a plain purple cami underneath (not included in the capsule).
I stopped taking pictures of my outerwear because I was sick of my winter coats. Now that spring is here, I'm breaking out the lighter coats, like this awesome yellow one.
here, and I've had them since October 2009 (purchased with a birthday gift certificate).
I wore my Grandma J's faux pearl neckace:
Cardigan (Club Monaco, consignment), cami (InWear), skirt (Vivienne Tam, consignment), shoes (Friis & Co.), necklace (vintage 70s, Grandma J).
