A casual summer capsule wardrobe

June 24, 2016

I’m really excited about this capsule wardrobe. This is my third one (read about the first and second here) and it feels like I’m getting better at it each time. I’m still loving the capsule wardrobe concept – a small collection of carefully chosen clothes that you love. For me, it boils down to the fact that I always have something to wear – so I never have those mornings where I hate all my clothes. It’s great 🙂

My process this time around was to start with the capsule wardrobe planner from Unfancy and think about what I actually spend my time doing and the kind of clothes that I need for my lifestyle. I also browsed through my spring/summer Pinterest board for some inspiration. I’ll be spending most of the summer either at the park with the kiddos, working from home, or on the occasional evening out with friends, so I need casual clothes that will work for heatwaves as well as cooler weather.

So here it is, my summer capsule! It’s a bit bigger than my other capsules (so even though 28 items aren’t actually a lot, this now feels like so much choice). We’ll see how that goes – I can already see that some items might get forgotten about, so I’m going to make a conscious effort to try and wear everything to prevent boredom setting in. In fact, I’m even considering just printing the image below and taping it to my wardrobe so I that don’t forget about anything…

P.S. More summer beauty and style: fake tan that’s actually good, the perfect summery nail polish and what to wear to a wedding.
