There’s something about summer that makes me appreciate simplicity– simple food, simple plans, and a simpler closet. I experimented with a capsule wardrobe here and afterwards decided it wasn’t for me in it’s true 36 piece form, but I love the concept of living with less and being more intentional about shopping and the pieces I add to my wardrobe. However, as we begin to pack up our home here in Los Angeles and plan our move to Austin, I’m finding myself wanting to go back to those capsule ways. I realized as I was going through my summer wardrobe last week that I didn’t really shop at all last summer and gave my permission to buy 8 new pieces– 8 new pieces that can mix and match with each other and be worn dozens of different ways making them perfect for a travel wardrobe abroad or just a way to live more simply over the next three plus months. We’ll share a new one piece, two ways post each week over the next three weeks and then round up all the different ways you can wear just 8 pieces after. Happy Monday friends and happy (early) summer. Here’s to living a bit more simply and soaking up time with our nearest and dearest, rather than worrying about what to wear….
