Your summer 2023 capsule is here: all new!

I love to create all new capsule wardrobes, and having endless outfit combinations is helpful for all of us! A solid wardrobe foundation makes getting dressed easy and effortless. Your wardrobe should be comprised of elevated, versatile, well-fitting pieces. When these pieces are combined, they make stylish outfits for all your upcoming events! This month, I was inspired by touches of green combined with faded blue and white. These colors always read timeless and sophisticated. I also love to add a touch of caramel, which works with pretty much everything.

One of my favorite things to do is find brand new pieces that make stylish outfits. For many years, this was my work in “Room 3” at Nordstrom, and it was truly a dream job. But things changed … this little blog started taking off, and I was able to give “dressing room experiences” online to many people across the country. I’m still counting my blessings, since making outfits is my happy place 🤍

Today’s post features the all new summer capsule wardrobe I’ve created for you. I believe in carefully and thoughtfully purchasing pieces that can be worn many different ways. So, many of these items are proven, meaning they’re best sellers, fit well and are worth every penny. Keep this post for reference … you’ll use it for the rest of summer!

All-important jackets

One of the main items of every great wardrobe

Cinq a Sept jacket | Knit jacket | Camel cardigan | Striped cardigan | Rails denim jacket | Linen blazer | Cardigan

These stylish jackets will get you through most any social situation. For example, a black blazer looks amazing with denim — look at this nice linen one from J.Crew. Also, check out this best selling Rails one — it’s a classic that goes with everything. I included a couple of cardigans since they work nicely year ’round, and this lightweight cashmere one is perfect for travel. As a matter of fact I’m wearing it on the airplane as I write this 🙂

 

All new Layering pieces

You only need ones that you’ll wear on repeat

Graphic tee | Beach sweater | Camel sweater | Polo | Button front shirt | Green cami | Coverup | Swimsuit | Striped tee

A few good layering pieces will cover you for all occasions. For example, this new Rag & Bone polo is cute and is a great update. An oversized poplin shirt is a year-round staple, and I love this new Frank & Eileen one. This beach sweater is a perfect option for cooler summer evenings, I especially love it casually thrown over your shoulders. So chic.

 

Well-fitting bottoms

The starting point of every outfit

Linen pants | Denim skirt | Black shorts | White shorts | Mother denim | Denim dress | Sarong | Jumpsuit | Dress

Ideally, owning three pairs of jeans or pants (white or écru, faded denim and black) will cover you in the wardrobe department. Consider this white linen trouser for a non-jean option, it’s perfect for warmer weather. Right now shorts are trending, and my two favorites are this J.Crew one and this brand new Vince style. If you want a denim update, try a denim skirt or wide leg jean.

 

Stylish accessories are a must in your capsule wardrobe

The key to completing your outfits

Bucket bag | Dior slides | Hat | Wallet on chain | Tote | Sunnies | Dior bracelet | Baseball hat

Fun, stylish accessories elevate all your outfits, and I recommend investing in the best bag you can. For now, I’m picking up this wallet on a chain and nylon bucket bag while dreaming about the others. These are the pieces that truly work magic for every outfit. Another way to take your outfits to the next level is to own a couple of pieces of statement jewelry. For example, this Dior woven bracelet is a huge splurge, but so gorgeous!

 

Shoes, shoes, shoes

Not much to say here, except who doesn’t love shoes?

 White sneakers | Black slides | Brown slides | Larroude sandals | Gold sandals | Black sandals

Sneakers are usually one of my first suggestions since they go with everything — especially now. I just spotted this new white pair. I’ve also been looking for an updated summer slide sandal, and ended up with this one. It’s really comfortable and perfect for casual summer days. For something a little dressier, I can’t say enough good things about this Larroude sandal and this taller one by L’Agence. Both versatile and comfortable.

Thank you for reading! xx
