Halloween hangover anyone? The first weekday after Halloween is one of those days where the world collectively thinks about going to Goodlife or any gym even if just for a brief second between tiny chocolate bars. Or am I alone in this one?
So what are these, starter outfits? Basically it’s taking the idea of a capsule wardrobe and making it even easier. Instead just build yourself 4 strong every day uniforms, created with items you LOVE, that are versatile. Now add those 4 outfits (that can easily be mix and matched to be 8-12 outfits) to your existing fall closet and there you have an instant closet update. This is an easy way to update your seasonal wardrobe, plus compared to the capsule wardrobe there is much less planning and thinking involved. Make sense?
01| Striped Tee, Cardigan and Slouchy Jeans – The perfect every day comfy attire that looks pulled together. Choose a cardigan (like this one) that you will never want to take off and jeans that fit like a comfy, slouchy glove.

02| Denim Shirt and High Rise Jeans – A classic, so much so that I bet you have these two items in your closet already. Great for every day wear and the perfect items to mix and match with – pretty much two needed basics.

03| Shirt Dress – Looking for something that feels like you are still in your pjs, but doesn’t look like it? Well looky here, the perfect feels-like-pjs-but-isn’t dress. Layer cardigans and sweaters and maybe even denim shirts on top, but maybe not all at once.

04| Sweater and Denim Skirt – A pencil skirt (maybe in blue denim?) is a must any time of the year, but it’s the best when you can make it work for every day wear. Such a great classic, looks pulled together but super comfy outfit.

boots and/or sneakers – Yes, two items of footwear is probably not enough. But maybe just add two new items that go with any and all outfits to your existing shoe closet? The goal is to buy shoes or boots that go with everything all the time, and these two pairs are the perfect ‘match with everything’ shoes.
