Summer Capsule Wardrobe // Look 9

Capsule_Wardrobe_Look_9_1

 

Are you completely tired of seeing this shirt yet?  I wore it a couple of weeks ago (before it was so hot out) like this and then also wore it for this shoot, so you see, it’s kind of a fan favorite. Or it’s at least my favorite.  One thing this capsule wardrobe has really taught me is what I have more than enough of (which is almost everything) and the couple of categories that are pretty sparse.  One of those categories being dressier tops.  I would like to blame my toddler and casual California vibes for the shortage.  I only included three dressy tops in this capsule (you can see the full list here), but would definitely include more in my next.

  1. Super cute! I love that top, and I have a bag just like that in silver.:) This capsule wardrobe thing is such a great idea!

      Thank you! I would highly recommend it, even if you just do it once for a couple of months. It really changes the way you see things in your closet and the way you shop!

  2. No a fave is a fave and I love this shirt and your fussy relax hair and casual chic shorts are perfect!!!

  3. I seem to have the opposite problem with my tops- I only have nicer ones I can wear to work, even though as a teacher I’m not working over the summer. I can’t commit to spending on anything I can’t wear to work! Most of my summer capsule is thrifted for that reason. But I’m loving this Equipment blouse regardless, its so sweet and looks great paired with those shorts. Love it!

      It’s so funny. Because I am freelance I usually see different people constantly so if I wear the same top a couple times a week it’s no big deal. However I recently did a month long job with the same people and was totally scrambling!

  5. I love the floral and denim look. I recently got some shorts similar to yours, and now I have a new way to style them!
