The Curated Closet book

I bought a copy of a book called the Curated Closet by Anuschka Rees in 2017. I bought the book just after Kitty Cotten, a kind lifestyle blogger, noted it could be a helpful book for someone who is hoping to create a capsule wardrobe, or to carefully create a wardrobe with pieces you truly love and are helpful for your lifestyle. The Curated Closet book is a generous size with a beautiful soft pink cover, and has lovely and inspiring fashion photography throughout the book. I am part of the way through the book, and hoping to carefully follow the chapters and tips shared by the authorΒ Anuschka Rees, to help to build a dream wardrobe.Β 

A mini wardrobe tour

Here is a mini wardrobe tour of a couple of my favourite pieces of clothing and accessories from my wardrobe I wear often 🌸 the pieces I chose include a pair of blue Girlfriend jeans from Witchery, a cream camisole top from Country Road, a honey colour warm coat from Ashley Fogel and a light brown and gold handbag from Trenery. The clothing pieces are quite simple and are in soft and neutral colours to help to go with a lot of other pieces, including more detailed pieces.

Jane Birkin inspiration

Jane Birkin was an English and French actress, singer, songwriter and model who is noted as being one of the most sought-after actresses and singers of the 1960's. Further, Jane Birkin is noted to be fashion's number one influencer 60 years after the height of her career, and the most coveted bag in the world, the Hermès Birkin bag, is named after her.

Here are a couple of ways to help to stay a bit warmer in the cooler autumn weather ✨
