Spring Capsule Wardrobe I

Waking up that Sunday morning for walking to a real estate listing and then meeting a coworker for brunch, I nearly slipped on a pair of leggings and oversized sweatshirt. Rather, I put more effort into my outfit and opted for a much chicer cashmere sweater and slouchy denim.

Even though my capsule wardrobe is built around neutrals, I am not one to build an outfit without so much color. And yet, the absence of color makes this fit feels especially chic.

the J.Crew slouchy boyfriend jean

I wore the slouchy denim because next to a pair of stretchy leggings, these are the next most comfortable option. They are not the best fitting denim but on a day I was prioritizing comfort, the J.Crew Slouchy Boyfriend Jean was the move.

Fit-wise, the pair is baggy throughout the thigh and crotch. I was hoping they would shrink, alas that was not the case. I am wearing a size twelve tall and have no worries about throwing them in hot wash / hot dry cycles.

Bottom line: While I would not purchase this style in multiple washes, the J.Crew Slouchy Boyfreind Jean serves a very specific role in in closet.

the Gap short classic trench

I have owned this short trench coat for five years. Yet until I unpacked it from a suitcase we sent ahead, I never wore it with such frequency as such in the past two weeks. It has been a go-to and I see myself wearing it throughout the spring.

I am wearing this jacket in a medium tall.
