I´m so glad I did a test run with my summer capsule wardrobe, it was quite an eye opener! There were some bits and bobs missing and other items were just unnecessary. By testing I was able to tweak my wardrobe a bit and make it more suitable for my needs. I also learned some lessons that I can use for future capsule planning as well…Today I´m gonna show you what´s changing and why, so here we go!
My capsule was not that suitable for warm summer days!
I was lacking some tops and floaty bottoms, but had to many jackets…
My style changes as the weather does
It´s especially like that in summer, so planning before the season started was not really working for me ( something I keep in mind for future capsules! )
Overall I still was quite happy with my capsule
I had plenty of outfits to wear, so that was good 🙂
I could definitely see a pattern as I was adding things in, and tossing some out...
The clothes that went into the capsule were playful, the items that left were more on the minimal side
Why I tossed them out:
One denim jacket is enough and I never wore this one during the test run..
This style of shirt I loved to wear for years, but I was just not feeling them anymore, instead I added some more playful & feminine ones in
Why I added them in:
This wrap over top I had for years and as I was searching for some more tops for my summer capsule, I found it at the back of my closet, wore it, and fell in love with it again…so I decided to add it in
The striped shirt is similar to the ones I tossed out, but because it has little bright flowers on it, I found it more appropriate and playful for summer
I found this white shirt in a second hand shop a few days ago, and I absolutely adore the romantic and feminine vibe of it! It´s just perfect for summer and I was lacking some nice tops in my capsule anyway
The denim skirt is another piece I had for quite a while, and because I had not enough breezy bottoms and love the look of it, in it went 🙂
You can see the rest of my summer capsule wardrobe here, it has 38 pieces in total now, a number I think is good to start with..
June starts tomorrow and with it the capsule wardrobe fun for summer! I´m really excited! And to celebrate the start of it, I´m gonna post a capsule wardrobe outfit ever Sunday during June… yay! 🙂 So come back on Sunday to see the first outfit, which is my favourite one ever…See you then
I wish you the best day ever!
