Summer Capsule Wardrobe

It’s summer! Time to revamp our wardrobes! Time for easy, breezy clothing! Time for fun! No one wants to have to fuss over looking nice when its 90° outside!

Me? I am obsessed with the idea of a capsule wardrobe. A capsule wardrobe is simply a set of clothes, usually a limited number of items, that all coordinate well to make up many different looks without too much fussing. I love to look my best, but hate reaching into a crammed closet with no idea of what to wear and wondering if any of what’s in there actually looks good on me.

Below is my dream casual summer capsule wardrobe for 2017 from Target. For around $300 you would have everything you needed for almost any event this summer. When it’s vacation time, just toss all of it in the tote, add your swimsuit, toiletries and makeup into the mix and you are ready to go!

This is 15 total items. All of the pieces go together and could make up over 30 different looks!



In the first collection (The Basics) I started with jeans, because -well- my life almost always starts with jeans! Then a basic black skirt (this one is so cute!) and some shorts to round out the bottoms.  The Lydia loafers by Mad Love are just as cute as their more expensive counterparts, SUGARFIX earrings by BaubleBar  go with everything and aviator sunglasses are always a classic! This tote is perfect for a weekend getaway or maybe longer. This entire wardrobe will fit in this bag and should get you through a week or two without too much trouble.

For tops I always love a crisp white T, (this one is only $8!) and this pink T gives a bit of color, a white short sleeve cardigan is great to toss in your bag for chilly evenings or air conditioned restaurants!

The second collection (The Extras) gives you more options to dress things up a bit. This floral kimono is a great layering piece for a summer wedding or date night. The sleeveless blouse is a pink that coordinates nicely with the delicate flowers in the kimono and this off the shoulder knit top is right on point with a delicate stripe. The shoes (oh, these shoes!) are a nice neutral and will go with all the outfits to dress them up as you choose and gold earrings (again SUGARFIX -Yea- BaubleBar at Target!) are always in style!

So there you go! Many of these things look as if they are only available online. You can purchase these things at the links above & below or maybe I’ll see you at Target!

Stay tuned for a plus size summer capsule!
