Well, here it is , at last, the long-awaited Summer (hmmm…. a bit short on sunshine so far!) Capsule Wardrobe. In some ways this is an easy one for me, I own two great summer jackets and my summer wardrobe has, for quite a few years now, been centred around these two.
So much so, that they both feature in these profile pictures taken by Sara Moseley back in 2010
I do love jackets, I wear them rather than cardigans, or with a cardigan, being British. Looking at my wardrobe the one thing I am short of is a cosy summer cardigan, I have my little grey Sandwich tie front, and the Coral Jigsaw one, featured in my Summer Dress Upcycled post, but I think I will need something a bit warmer. I’m going to have to have a look in the charity shops and see what I can find.
Here is the Summer Wardrobe
Jackets: Brown leather, Pink linen, Cream linen
Dresses: Blue print Nomad, Coral upcycled
Trousers: Black linen, Navy/White stripe, Grey pinstripe, Cropped demin
Skirts: denim, cream/grey linen stripe, green (not sure if that one stays)
Scarves: Pink floral vintage, Blue/brown silk print
Tops, long sleeve: White linen shirt, White tee, Navy tee
Tops short sleeve: White tee, Grey tee
Cardigans: Grey tie front, Coral
Belts: wide pink, narrow navy
Shoes: Grey sandles, brown wedges, Merrell comfy walking sandles
Earrings: ‘music’ studs by Katie Stainer and some pretty pink glass studs.
29 items so far, going to consider what else to include, before I commit myself.
I have a few things I aspire to have in the wardrobe, but in reality won’t get worn. We will take a look at these and a navy linen jacket I hope to upcycle next week. In the meantime these are hanging in the spare room wardrobe, out of the way.
I had hoped to take photos of everything, but the light hasn’t been that good this week, here are a few I took earlier:
How are you getting on with your summer wardrobe? Are you trying to make it a Capsule Wardrobe or trying Poject 333? Do tell!
