Capsule Wardrobe: Free People October Catalog

Free People October catalog
Is it sweater weather yet? I’m counting down the days to the short-lived, crisp weather that immediately precedes the disgusting slush of winter. The Free People October 2015 catalog perfectly captures that crisp, not soggy, feeling of the fall. With the cozy sweaters and luxurious fabrics, the lookbook just transforms me to some cabin in the middle of nowhere surrounded by trees. So, browse the catalog, soak in some inspiration (and do some shopping, no judgement here), then sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s capsule, comprised of pieces all under $50.
