The pondering is over as I have decided to make a 10 item capsule wardrobe for summer. For more on my reasons why, read more here.
This post will be all about the pieces I have selected for my capsule.
I live in the Midwest so our summers are hot + humid and in the earlier months you need a few layers for the cooler nights and early mornings.
I selected a black linen button up and a denim button up.
For the main part of my capsule I have some fun blouses. I love this gingham one and this striped one both from CJLA.
Next we have Bottoms. First, I have this black and white striped skirt I thrifted years ago. It is the perfect weight to slide on over my swimsuit. Then I bought these linen shorts on clearance last year.
Then there are two pairs of jeans for when its chillier. A medium wash with distressing and a simple black denim.
Finally we end with dresses. I love dresses so I picked three. The gingham dress (duh.) A simple black Spaghetti strap that has been a staple the past couple summers. And lastly this beautiful mauve tiered dress from CJLA.
Two things I would like to add to my summer wardrobe are some jean shorts and a linen skirt. I’m going to DIY them both so look out for those!
