I've had a few people comment on my capsule wardrobe posts on Instagram that they think it's interesting that their are such busy or colorful pieces in my capsule. I did a little internet sleuthing and it's true that a lot of people stick to really basic, solid pieces with capsule wardobing. I think there is this myth that you have to do that in order to be able and mix and match them to make up so many different looks within a 2 or 3 month time period, but I actually think that becomes more monotonous because you're essentially wearing the same outfits in different colors. Don't be afraid to mix prints or colors and throw in something eccentric. It's what keeps getting dressed every day in a capsule wardrobe so fun! Here are two other ways that I've worn this skirt so far this summer:
Aaron and I have been taking Parker up to The Getty on Saturday nights for a picnic dinner and to enjoy the cooler weather. I wore this look the first time we went up and now it's become my Saturday evening uniform!
