A quick programming note before we dive in to this month's blog: Although I'll be styling over the summer, I'll be back with fresh blog content as the school year kicks off.
With school wrapping up this week for our family, I am dreaming about the lazy days and sun-soaked adventures ahead of us this summer. While summer sales can be a great time to snag early fall gear for back to school in warmer climates like ours, capsule wardrobes free up time and energy for what matters most. Here are a few other ways a capsule wardrobe comes in handy, especially in the summer:
Fuss-free Summer Dressing: keep your closet focused on natural fibers, cool hues, and breezy silhouettes so you've got "summer chic" nailed when it's too hot to even think.
Adventure-Ready: Last minute trip? It's easy to pack when working with a small, seasonal selection of pieces you love. Stay-cation? Editing a collection of pieces you feel great in makes getting out the door a breeze...even when there isn't one.
Make Memories, Not Trips to the Mall: In the days of online shopping, it may be more accurate to call this section "Put Your Phone Down Awhile." Everyone has swim gear, camp essentials, heat-proof styles, and wedding guest/occasion pieces for the summer season. No browsing for water shoes for the kid, breathable workwear for the husband, or something to wear to the wedding next month. It's time for sno cones and sunshine around here!
There is a certain relief knowing there is nothing more that has to be purchased until September rolls around. There is also a certain joy in seizing the moment for all the ways to wear favorite summer pieces while they're in season. Soak up your summer with a capsule wardrobe by getting started here!
