Welcome back! I have decided to introduce a new mini-series to my blog: the Timeless Capsule Wardrobe. It has been a long-time coming, so I am excited to finally be sharing it with you all.

As you know, I am currently in university and am living the life of a broke student 😦 My reality involves working 30+ hour weeks to be able to pay for school out-of-pocket as I go. My goal is to avoid student loans in order to graduate debt-free. It is doable, however it is challenging and takes great discipline in order to maintain a tight budget.

Unfortunately, as much as I love fashion and beauty, I do not have the funds to afford all the luxuries that I desire. Therefore, when shopping, my philosophy is putting more money towards one item with high quality that I know will last me a long time. I am not a fan of fast-fashion; buying multiple cheap clothing items of low quality that do not last long. You might get a couple of wears out of them before having to purchase a whole new item once again. This shopping mentality not only exhausts your money, but also your time. Time that could be spent at your job working and making more money (increasing your cash inflow), instead of spending more money (increasing your cash outflow).

With that in mind, I have chosen a few items that I find every wardrobe needs, but that create a variety of timeless outfits. The whole point of a capsule wardrobe is to exploit as many different outfit combinations with a select number of clothing items. The trick is to buy neutral pieces that can alternate well with each other.

Every week, I will be posting a continuation of this series, focusing on a certain type of clothing item. First one to come will be about coats, jackets, and blazers. Stay tuned!

This outfit oozes femininity and elegance! I love the lace overlay on the pencil skirt and the bow and ruffle details on the blouse! This look can be worn to the office, to a cocktail party, or for an fancy night out. The nude colour for accessories helps bring out the navy and white contrast. Furthermore, the use of nude shoes helps to give the illusion on longer legs, thus is overall slimming.

This outfit features three common neutral colours: navy blue, white, and nude. Even though this combination may seem simple, this look has a certain flare and embellishment, due to the pleated ruffles and bows found on the blouse. The waistband tie detailing also adds to the romantic tone of this ensemble.
