I am in this constant battle of trying to be “put together” and ehhh, no… However, I make better efforts nowadays because I realized that when I look my best, I feel my best as well. It just adds that extra oomph in confidence, you know? Attitude is everything. Not trying to impress or one-up anyone either – my personal style is so simple compared to the many fashionable New Yorkers.
Since starting my Capsule Wardrobe, I would say I have been getting more creative with maximizing pieces that I have. Sure, some looks may be repeated, 3-peated even, but I managed to look put together. I would document everyday looks, but do you know how exhausting and obnoxious that would be for you and me? So instead, I only highlight some of my favorite day-to-day looks.
This look captures the whole effortless look, wholly. Although, it is probably my signature style characteristic, it still has that “put together” element. I borrowed three things from my last outfit: the white blouse, the statement necklace and my favorite nude bag by Michael Kors.

The cropped sweater made is the game changer – if I had worn a full-length sweater to my waist, I don’t think the overall look would have looked slimming and resulted in “effortless.” Although I do mean business, this look is casual, too. To me, this is what I call business casual because I am wearing dark denim and my shirt is just chilling.
In case you are confused with references in my entry above, let me assist you with some links: what is a capsule wardrobe? I broke it down for you. Did I really wore the same outfit? Nah, just a couple of pieces you can find here and it’s the same sweater from the time I wore my culottes. Who are my style inspirations? That’s easy, you can read it here.
