Fashion Friday: Capsule Wardrobe Update

Never in my wildest dreams did I think that a capsule wardrobe would work out so well for me!

I’ve always been a more is more kind of person, but dressing this pregnant bod has really an eye opener for me. First off, it is not easy to get used to the new dimensions as they change quite a lot very quickly. Also your focus changes to buying for baby and not for yourself (I haven’t even been buying make up of late which is huge for me!)

So working with a limited number of clothing has been a weird mix of easy, challenging and fun. Easy because a lot of the guess work gets taken out of the equation when putting outfits together, challenging because after all the easy combos have been worn you need to get a bit more creative and I’ve really enjoyed doing it.

I’m definitely going to continue with this in the future.

Here’s a look at some of what I’ve worn recently:
