Building a Capsule Wardrobe

Building a Capsule Wardrobe

 

Lately, I’ve been visiting the idea of creating a capsule wardrobe.  The holidays and the months following always make me realize how much stuff I have and how much of it I probably don’t need, which in turn ignites a major purge of said stuff. Of course a lot of that stuff includes clothing, shoes, and accessories.  I think for a lot of people, it can get to a point where getting dressed in the morning is more of a chore because you are overwhelmed with choices instead of faced with simple, stylish decisions.  Honestly, that may be why a capsule wardrobe sounds the most appealing to me…ease.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE styling and putting things together, but I also very much appreciate simplicity and well-made pieces with great design elements.

Above are some of the pieces I consider to be staples in a wardrobe, most of which I have variations of myself and are often items I continue to go back to.  I’d say it’s a good start to building a great capsule wardrobe.

 

 

June Wedding Wear

June Wedding Wear

‘Tis the Wedding Season!! So, what to wear!? Er on the side of classic and you can’t go wrong. I found this Dolce and Gabbana dress that’s full of color and perfect to wear to a lovely June wedding. Make it pop even more with some bright colored accessories…bright colored accessories are always a good way to brighten up any classic silhouette-especially the sleeveless sheath dress.

Don’t forget to tuck away your favorite lip wear in your clutch either. ;) I’ve found that Sugar Lips works really well at hydrating for a long period of time…and it smells nice and fresh too.

It’s always so hard to decide what to wear this time of year.  It’s that time where the weather is starting to transition into fall…with warm days and cold nights.  Which means it’s a little too warm for jeans and a sweater, but a little too cold for shorts and a tank.  So what do you wear??  It’s time to compromise.  A sweater and shorts…a tank and jeans…a good rule of thumb I usually go by is making sure either my legs or arms will be warm when it’s cool.  That way, I’m not turning purple and begging for a hot cup of tea.
