Creating a Autumn Capsule Wardrobe #SP #Shop #Cbias

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client.

The weather is turning cooler and its time to start digging out the warmer clothes. Well if I had some I would do. I had a huge clear out when we moved in March and threw out a lot of clothes. I picked up a few bits for summer in the hope that I would be a lot slimmer by now and would buy a new autumn wardrobe. However I am still carrying a lot of baby weight and don’t really want to spend a lot of money when the clothes won’t fit me in a few months. So I decided to create a autumn capsule wardrobe with what I had already and just add some accessories to tie them all together.

I thought a capsule wardrobe would be best for me.

I want to:

  • Be able to get dressed quickly in the morning as we have the school run 5 days a week.
  • Be comfortable in what I am wearing. I still have a 7 month old to run about after.
  • Look good. I am fed up with looking frumpy.

I had a good sort of of my wardrobe and was left with these items.

Plain Jersey Dresses #Shop

Selection of Jackets and Cardigans


I had already bought a new pair of winter boots as mine has fallen apart and a new leather satchel.

I just needed some scarves and some jewellery to complement them all. I had seen that Sainsbury’s had launched their Autumn/Winter collection so had a look online and was really inspired. Me and OH took a trip out to a store to do some shopping, you can see our trip on this Google + album.

I bought two scarves, a necklace and a bracelet add those to the pieces I already had I have a lot of options.

I have put together 7 outfits to show you some the possibilities.

I am really happy with what I have created. I have some many options now and I can just throw it all together in then morning and I know I will look good and feel comfortable. I may need to get a new red lipstick now!

    I’m so impressed with all your new looks! This is exactly what I need to do to my wardrobe, although I fear that if I got rid of all my ancient/broken/too small clothes that I might not be left with much!

    My office is scarf city – I swear it’s different scarves on everyone every day as the colder weather comes in. Mine are almost all covered in skull prints (don’t know why), so I think I’ll be popping to Sainsburys to have a look for some more, these are great.

    I love these looks and it’s a great idea to put them together like that as I also have days when I look a bit frumpy simply due to not organising things and having a toddler up so early in the morning going non-stop all the time.
    Great Autumn accessories 🙂
