Summer Capsule Wardrobe // Round Up

I laughed, I cried, I wore the same 36 pieces for the last two months.  This capsule wardrobe experiment will go down in Effortless Chic history as one of the best things I have ever done personally on the site, so it seemed necessary to pay homage to it in one final round up.  Here’s what I loved, what I would do differently and my thoughts on the whole concept.

Our last day in Vancouver last week was filled with light rain and breezy 50 degree temperatures that had me dreaming of fall!  There were these moody, gray storm clouds that hung over the sky all day and I even bought a cozy cashmere sweater, because it was just that kind of day (and I hadn’t packed anything remotely warm enough!).  Meanwhile back in LA we were greeted with temps in the 90s and pure California sunshine, so I’m going to soak it up while I can with easy casual outfits like these. I love the relaxed feel of these …
