Hi! Hello! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend, ours was pretty hectic as we helped out some friends with their street food business at Parklife, fun but definitely tiring, let me tell you! Anyway, this week is Capsule week! We'll be looking at my inspiration for my Summer wardrobe, how I went about … Continue reading Spring wrap up | Lessons learned
cami / kimono (old) - similar / jeans / loafers Remember my 'haulternative’? You'll recognise this gorgeous kimono and white cami top from that, also I prematurely pulled this cami out of storage for my Spring Capsule (when I shopped my wardrobe for Spring) only to put it back into it's box pretty quickly afterwards. However, it's back for Summer! And this time … Continue reading Bohemian elements
top / jeans / jacket (vintage) / converse Seriously, where has Summer gone?! Yesterday was cold, wet and miserable, and definitely didn't feel like June. For the first time in a few weeks I needed my denim jacket in the morning to walk to work, until then I'd been very comfortable without it thanks. This outfit, as the title … Continue reading Flashback to Berlin
Hello! Happy Monday! I hope your Monday is brighter than mine, we have had non stop rain all day here and moody grey skies. Summer, where have you gone?!

Today I wanted to take a few minutes to just write about what I've learned from having a Capsule Wardrobe for a year. Back in 2015, my shopping habit was out of control. I would quite happily spend all my wages on clothes. But they weren't clothes that made me happy, or even necessarily fit … Continue reading Lessons I’ve learnt from having a capsule wardrobe so far
Following on from Monday's post, today we're looking at another way to style this outfit with accessories. As yesterday's look was so fresh and Spring-like, I wanted to try something totally different today. Enter the black accessories. All black everything! By simply tucking in the jumper, it creates a whole new shape to the outfit. I … Continue reading Let’s try it with black, shall we?
This is a question that I've always wondered. In my Style Series posts, I look at different ways of styling one piece. For example, a plain white t-shirt. You can pair it with jeans, with skirts, under shirts or on its own. A lot of different options, right? But what if that flexibility was stripped … Continue reading Can accessories make a big difference to your look?
I actually bought this cardigan to go with pieces in my Spring capsule, however it's working so well with what I have now, I've been wearing it a lot already. And no, it's not 'cheating' - I don't believe in being so strict with my capsule wardrobe. Because it should be fun, right? So, yes, … Continue reading Transitional Outfits | Winter into Spring
It's the final chapter of transitional week here on The Casual Stylist, and today we're having a nose at the new pieces I've added to my Spring wardrobe, as well as pieces that are still on my list to buy.
