Winter Capsule Wardrobe

January 28, 2020

I was thinking about what pieces I’ve worn over and over this winter and thought I’d share them on a post. And then  I was noticing what a great capsule wardrobe they would make!  So even though this isn’t officially a capsule wardrobe (probably too many pieces right?), I thought it would be fun to look at it as one!  And for those of you excited for capsule wardrobes on the blog, stay posted for something more capsule-y in the future!

These pieces are ones that I wear over and over again.  Some of them are on sale right now too! When I couldn’t find the exact piece, I found something comparable.  As always, feel free to ask any questions in the comments or email me (  I’m happy to share sizing info and styling tips!

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce.
