Start with a scarf - month 4

My William Morris scarf

The scarf that I chose to base my capsule wardrobe on is the William Morris daffodil print shown above. My first three months' pieces were a mixture of neutrals and bright colours, so for month four I decided to add some lighter colours, including my second neutral of camel. It's still cold here in Spain, so I haven't been wearing any of my short-sleeved tops or lightweight trousers as you can see in this month's selection. They will definitely be appearing in May though!




A reminder that the posts in this series have been inspired by The Vivienne Files, who has chosen six different Herm├Ęs scarves to base her capsules around. Do take a look at her post for lots more ideas from her beautiful capsules. My budget is slightly less than Janice's!

Here I've created a collage of the pieces so far.


Looking at all the pieces above, I can see that the grey shoes don't really go with the camel trousers, the gold shoes aren't ideal with the navy trousers and the cobalt shoes aren't suitable for everyday wear.  Clearly I don't have the expertise that Janice does! However looking at the collage as a whole, I feel there are still lots of possibilities in this capsule - after all most of the tops and bottoms go with each other and you only wear one pair of shoes at a time!

  1. I love what you're doing - expertise is overrated! (plus I do this full-time; I suspect that you have other things on your agenda!)
    Thanks so much for the shout-out, and for doing such a lovely job with this.
    big hugs,
    Janice

  2. I too follow Janice Riggs every day. And like you I made a collage, mine using her 4X4 template. I copied mine to a MS Word doc, but I got my photos from various catalogs. It really helps to see it all together, then like some of her posts, one can see what does not fit. I enjoy your posts, Sue.
