Thanks to a summer of funemployment, I inadvertently had a capsule wardrobe the past few months. I should've planned better and written dozens of posts (gotta get those CLICKS GUYS), but I didn't realize it was happening until I started seeing the same people while wearing the same clothes. Chances are, if you saw me this summer, I was wearing some variation of an outfit below.
Casual, uninspired outfits don't make for great blog fodder, which is why it's been pretty slow on the blog this summer. So I'm going to show you what I wore all summer long in one post!
These Grandma Black Shorts
Black shorts + Everlane Tank was basically my uniform this summer. This pair from J.Crew Factory is particularly amazing, because they have a nice wide, stretchy waistband. The fabric was awesome for dressing up or down, so...
I bought them in white too.
What's that? The same shorts in white with a BLACK Everlane tank? Yeah. You're seeing it. It's happening. In fact, J.Crew has a bunch of different colors and patterns on sale right now, so I might be picking up a few more pairs (they're TTS). I also lived in these espadrilles from Soludos - super comfy, super cute.
A Black Maxi Dress
When I wasn't in those magic shorts, I was probably in a dress. This particular black maxi is super soft (and kind of see-thru, whoops) and inspired by the one I loved from Theory. Grab a cute clutch like the leopard one here from Clare V. and you're good for day or night.
This Particular Old Navy Dress
Outfit 1: Dress, Old Navy. Shoes, XXI. Bag, JustFab.
Outfit 2: Dress, Old Navy. Shoes, Zara. Vest, XXI.
This dress cost like $15 on sale, and to say I got my money's worth would be an understatement. I wear this thing like three times a week. I'm wearing it now, actually. This dress was my version of the muumuu this summer. Lucky for you, they've produced a ton of them in different patterns.
So that's it. Two dresses, two pairs of shorts, two tanks, and a handful of other tops and shoes. "Capsule Wardrobe" is really just a fancy way to say "I wear the same thing almost every day."
