Stripes & Its' Pairings

 
 

It has already been a crazy week! I have a content calendar that I try my hardest to stick too but it seems to evade me every week. Some day I'll find a way to stick to my schedule! 

In the meantime, while things are so busy, it's nice to have an easy outfit to throw together. One less thing to think about. And my trick for seeing just how much I can get out of my closet capsule is to take one basic item and see how many outfits I can create with it. This exercise also really helps you discover your capsules true work horses and pushes you to get out of the box & let your creative juices flow! This is how I've come up with some fun layering that I'll be sharing soon! 

I actually did this exercise a while back with my buffalo plaid shirt in winter. The first round wasn't part of my winter capsule but it was a way for me to see how creative I could get and if a capsule would be something I could live with. So for spring I've decided to try my next pairings post with my black and white stripe tee (ethical version). So basic. Really easy to find multiple styles and ways to wear it!
