I dare to say, I will never be one to have a minimalist, capsule wardrobe. I love the idea, but I just love variety to dang much. The one time I do like to play with a capsule wardrobe is when weekend getaways and vacations come around. With the Summer almost here, I thought I’d share a great way to make the most of of your wardrobe when you want keep the items limited. I’ve styled three complete looks with all the pieces I included in my Summer travel capsule. The pieces I’m including are:
2 pairs of shorts, 1 swimsuit, 1 tank, 1 pair of pants, 1 bra top, 3 pairs of shoes, 3 bags, 1 pair of sunnies, 1 cotton blouse, 1 denim top, 1 floral chiffon cardi top, 3 pairs of earrings, endless mix and match opportunities
Let’s kick it off with my first look that is cozy enough to wear to bed and cute enough to style for brunch. For this look I’m wearing a pair of shorts and tank from Hernest Project, a pair of runners, a floral chiffon cardi top, a cross body bag, and some hoop earrings.
First, let’s chat about the two magical pieces from Hernest. These Tencel + cotton shorts and tank are so comfortable and breathable. They are created with sleep in mind, but designed in a way that they can comfortably be worn for day to day life. Imagine rolling out of bed, throwing on a cute layering piece and heading out for brunch. Ummmm, yes please! I have a pair of joggers and a tee from them too and they are in constant rotation (actually wearing the joggers as I’m writing this). Oh, and did I mention they are also an ethical, Canadian brand?
I will have two more blog posts coming showcasing two more looks with the items I listed above in my Summer Travel Capsule line up. One thing you are going to notice is a colour scheme. This is so important to allow the most mixing and matching possible. I kept it classic and simple with black, blue, and white with some accessories in a caramel brown. This light cardi would also work great over my swimsuit with denim shorts. This tank would be cute tucked into my easy, black pants. A Girl’s gotta have options! Stay tuned for my next posts.
