As part of the series on A Merry Mishap Blog, Jennifer and I wanted to Create a Capsule Wardrobe. If you ever wondered about those key basic items every wardrobe needs or if you've wanted to try creating a capsule wardrobe for yourself, this is the perfect place to start.


1. Trenchcoat: This versatile piece looks just as good worn buttoned up and alone as it does casually over a pair of jeans or a dress.

2. Blazer: From jeans and a t-shirt to an evening suit or silky slip, the black blazer is one of the key pieces in high rotation in my wardrobe. 

3. Cashmere Sweater: One essential I always have in my closet. The Everlane cashmere sweater is lightweight, soft and the perfect fit.

4. Dress: The versatile black slip dress can be layered over a thin sweater or under a leather jacket. The slip works from day to night.

5. Tank/Tee: A classic effortless piece for layering or wearing alone.

6. Everyday Denim: A good pair of jeans that fit your body. I love my vintage Levis but for the perfect fit I get them tailored to fit just right. 

7. Black trousers: A good tailored pant is my go-to and nothing beats a beautifully cut pair of cropped pants. 

8. Bag: The perfect everyday bag should fit all your essentials and can be worn more than one way. As a shoulder or a top handle bag.

9. Jewelry: Love this distinctive yet timeless piece by Kat Kim that adds something unique to your everyday look.

10. OOPS, I can't count! 

11. Pumps: This style works dressed up or down, adding a feminine touch to any outfit. 

12. Sneakers: The perfect nonchalant piece that works across just about any occasion. 

13. Flats: These Martiniano flats are my everyday shoe, comfortable and easy to pair with any look.
