Summer Capsule Wardrobe // Look 1

It has been so fun reading all of your comments on my capsule collection posts here and here!  To be honest, I was getting a little bored of the same style posts week in and week out so it’s been really fun to shake it up a bit and really focus on simple, every day looks instead of finding the next giant patch of bougainvillea to shoot in front of!  Ha!  Some of you asked how I decided on these 36 pieces so I thought I would break that down.  Not that there is only one right way to do it, this is just how I did and it seems to so …
