I thought that I would wrap up some of my M&B makes and also talk about some of my possible future outer layer plans, since it’s cooling down here in Christchurch!
Although I know I’ll never have a capsule wardrobe, I like to break my wardrobe down into mini-collections. I like to think that if/when we get back to international travel, I’ll have my wardrobe down pat and will easily be able to put together a comfortable travel wardrobe which all pair with each other.
