My Capsule Wardrobe // Early Summer

I can’t remember the last time I was this excited about a post.  This post is a culmination of so many things that I don’t even know where to begin, but here goes!  The idea to try out a capsule wardrobe came about around three months ago.  I was getting my hair done by my good friend and hair stylist extraordinaire, Addie, and she asked if I had seen a particular post about capsule wardrobes.  I hadn’t seen the one she was referring to, but it was right around the time that Erin was doing something similar and I had …
