October 31x31 Capsule Style Challenge – ABBY ALLEY

October 31x31 Capsule Style Challenge

October 31x31 Capsule Style Challenge

 With October just around the corner, it is the perfect time for me to try this capsule wardrobe experiment. I chose 31 pieces because there are 31 days in October, but this isn't a magic number by any means. I originally wanted to include shoes in this number, but couldn't quite squeeze them in. Maybe next month! This also doesn't include coats, workout clothes, pjs/loungewear, jewelry, and bags. I already practice the capsule mentality with my accessories, as I almost exclusively wear my own products. 

I live in Chicago where October can be anywhere from 20 degrees to 70 degrees, so I did my best to choose pieces that could work for all scenarios. But I am going to give myself grace if I have to make any edits and I'll be sure to update you. :)

I've linked everything I could below in case you're looking for anything like these pieces to fill gaps in your closet.

I'm really looking forward to this challenge and seeing if I'm happy with my choices!
