February’s capsule is here my friends! So….what happened to January’s capsule? We don’t talk about January.

I added in some Valentine’s Day-adjacent pink in the line up and really took advantage of winter white this time. Once again, I didn’t want to create any hard and set rules (i.e. 30 for 30 from back in the day) so I just kind of made a list of some of my go-to’s lately and went from there. This month I’ve used 20 pieces total of clothing, shoes, bags and I came up with about 29 different outfits. It’s interesting this time I had some pieces that I thought…hmmm I could have done without these, but I’ll get to that at the end! (Gotta keep you around somehow.)

Here are the items I picked for this month’s capsule:

 

I’ve linked everything in the side bar so you can find everything there. I’ve listed my size in each item to the right with each product link. I’m typically a medium, size 6/8 or 28 or 29 in denim for reference. But I have a few notes on the fit of items. I would recommend to SIZE UP for length on the pink top but everything is TTS.

So let’s get to the outfits!

 

My Favorite Looks + Some Thoughts

As I said earlier there were a few things have way through the try on that I was like…I could lose these and not miss them for this capsule. Sadly the quilted jacket — which I love on a one on one basis but for the capsule it wasn’t really necessary and the cut wasn’t as cropped as I needed it to be. I ended up tucking it under and it worked, but I think overall it was superfluous for this capsule. I could have (should have) have swapped it out for a white blazer or just left it off in general.

Another item I could have done without was the chore jacket, while it did make it into my favorite outfits below, it wasn’t one that I was *in love* with. It’s an on the fence item to be honest. I can’t tell if it’s too short for the look I want on this jacket. (However, if you are short waisted and struggle finding jackets for shorter torso’s — this one might be for you!)

Items that I loved this capsule — the pink blouse, the cropped cardigan, the utility pants, the Madewell jeans and the wide leg trousers. All great pieces that had lots of variety. Well except the pink blouse but that was on me — I could have stretched it a few more ways but I think I’ll feature it a bit more this month in other ways!

Fit Details

For the most part, everything runs TTS! The jeans stretch with wear so stay your size and wear them a little looser, is what I would suggest. the utility pants ran snug at first but stretch with wear. If you are rounder in the waist / hips, size up. The black Madewell blouse runs snug but TTS, size up for bigger boobs. The dress runs short and tight in the arms — size up for length. The skirt runs TTS, unlined. All shoes fit TTS. The wide leg pants from J.Crew run TTS, I’m in the 29 which is pretty standard for me at J.Crew.

  1. Hi kendi I found your monthly capsule post from September and thought the idea was just brilliant! i love putting together my items beginning every month (i move the rest to a spare closet in another room). it has been such an eye opening experience. firstly, i was buying too many one off pieces – no wonder i felt like i had nothing to wear…the clothes need to play nicely with each other. i could go on and on, but suffice it to say i’m loving it and i look forward to checking with your monthly capsule for inspiration. Thank you.
