Summer Capsule Wardrobe // Look 6

Summer_Capsule_Wardrobe_Look_6_1

This is one of those looks I would have never thought to put together except that this silky top and these denim shorts happen to be in the same capsule wardrobe.  This top isn’t a staple in my closet by any means, but I included it because I felt like my capsule needed a few more dressy tops.  The chambray shirt may seem superfluous to the look but it’s actually a totally practical mom move.  It’s the barrier between my toddler’s dirty fingers and my white dry clean only shirt and so far it has worked like a charm!  So here is a question for you that’s a little off-subject…

Would you be interested in hiring a stylist to do e-styling or create an e-capsule wardrobe for you, all digitally over email?  I get a lot of personal style inquiries, but don’t typically do personal shopping jobs because they’re just not that scalable.  It takes a lot of time to pull, fit and return for someone and a lot of people just don’t have the budget for that.  However, if you could email a stylist with an issue like say, “I’m looking for more high-rise shorts that have at least a 3″ inseam.” or “I want someone to create a fall capsule wardrobe for me, using mostly things I already own and maybe some suggestions for new ones to incorporate.” Would you?

  1. I think the e-styling is a GREAT idea. I’ve been working on my capsule wardrobe and could really use some help. Like you I don’t want a lot of stuff anymore but want to look good. Again, great idea!

  2. Yes I would love it Jen but right now I am enjoying the capsule wardrobe series on your blog….another fave of mines and love the shoes(as always great legs Jen)xx

    I would love an option to have a stylist pull some ideas for me! It can be so overwhelming shopping for what you ‘need.’

    I think it’s a fantastic idea! I don’t have a lot of time to shop, and it would be great if I could get help with a capsule wardrobe, based on my lifestyle and budget. Love this look!

  5. Yes, I would love it! I tried Stitch Fix but just didn’t find they were super tuned into what I said I wanted/was looking for – and I have no problem buying on my own once I have a recommendation. Would be great!

  6. I love the idea of an e-stylist to answer specific questions. For me the problems tend to be around making an outfit look finished. I have jewelry and scarves and fun shoes and all the right “sorts” of layering pieces, but I just end up feeling weighed down and bothered by my clothes so stop trying to actually have great finished outfits and instead go for good enough.

    I think the website “style me perfect” does what you are referring to?

    This might be my favorite outfit from your summer capsule thus far! To answer your question, I would love the option to hire you as an e-stylist (specifically to create a capsule wardrobe), but I would want to better understand the cost. Regardless, I don’t think you’d have any shortage of customers if this is something you’d like to offer!
