Oh hi! I realize in the world of retail and online everybody seems to have moved onto Fall, but where I live we have at least 3 more months of Summer weather left, and even those of us in more Northern climates have about two. So I am going to go against the grain and keep rolling with warm weather outfits! I outlined in this post that I am doing a month long Capsule Wardrobe challenge where I am taking about 30-ish pieces and created about 30 outfits with them. Nothing fancy or crazy, this is real life over here, but I wanted to show that can live with a bit less and make cute, affordable looks without a ton of stuff. I am showing these looks daily over in my Instastories, and sharing them in real time on my Shop My Look page, so head on over to those two spots if you like instant gratifcation!
If you would like further details as to how I choose outfits, how I shop, and the EXACT system I use to create my capsule wardrobe, you can purchase my email course HERE. It’s called Your Simplified Closet, and it outlines how to stop the madness when it comes to shopping, getting dressed, and that overwhelmed feeling you get when you walk into a store and have no idea what looks good. If you like step by step instructions that you can use over and over again FOREVER, you’ll love my course.
How cute is this dress? I am a sucker for polka dots, and wearing a dress this time of year is a no brainer (it is HOT here!) Dresses are part of my uniform, so when I find one that I feel can be worn casually or dressed up, I grab it. This one fits true to size, I am wearing a size small. These sandals have also been a favorite of mine since I purchased them! I love that they can make all outfits better, which is what I tend to look for in shoes and accessories.
A no brainer outfit! I am obsessed with these butter soft tees from Abercrombie. They are perfection! They drape beautifully, and can be dressed up or down depending on how you style it. I have this tee in two colors and I am probably going to get a third. And these shorts…my workhorse shorts this summer, I probably wear them 4 days a week? Maybe more? I love the acid wash, and the fit. I size up one size for fit and length! I also have them in the medium ripped wash, but like these better. Also, I bought these slip on mules in two colors, leopard and snake, and think they will look so freakin’ cute with skinny jeans and a sweater when Fall does get here (eventually….) I do love them with shorts, too, though! They are true to size.
Another polka dot Old Navy dress! I had major coupons after buying my kids’ school uniforms, so I bought a couple of dresses and a cute pair of heels that I’ll show you here soon. Obviously I bought this for the pattern, and loved the length of it. I bought my typical size small and it is true to size. I love that this dress could live in my closet for several seasons and not look dated. And these espradrilles are still my faves, I have yet to find an outfit they don’t look good with! They are also true to size.
This mustard color is one of the brighter colors I lean to in my mostly neutral closet, and I love that it makes just about every outfit more fun. I believe in having a color palette in your wardrobe so that you can mix and match your things more easily, and this kimono (it is old, but here is a link to a similar one!) is one I turn to when I want to make a simple outfit a little bit more fun. I love it over a graphic tank from Target, my fave studded sandals, and my Abercrombie shorts.
This is the real deal right here, what you tend to see me in the most when I am out and about, especially with my kids. This is one of my other “uniforms.” A graphic tee/tank + bottoms+ fun shoes and accessories. I grab this combo the most when I don’t want to think even a little bit, and I always feel good in it. I always size up in Target’s graphic tanks, I like things loose! I am wearing a size large and wear this bralette underneath as the armholes do hang lower. I also size up one in the shorts as I like them to fit a little looser and longer. I would also size up 1/2 a size in these sandals!
