MY SUMMER CAPSULE.

I’ve taken the plunge in to the world of capsule wardrobes and (excuse the cliche) couldn’t be more excited. At least half of me. The other half is shaking in my cute strappy sandals because even though I’ve done my research and know what I’m getting into I tend to be  more of a go with the flow kinda chick and all the “rules” make me nervous… Regardless, I’m looking forward to the process and making it my own while keeping things simple!

(UPDATE) I still would love to add a cute summer dress and strappy sandals with a heel or wedge, but here is what I have so far. Some of these items I did purchase new and others are rolled over from previous seasons so I’ve found something similar to picture and link to.

Here is a peek at my summer capsule (so far) and it’s nursing friendly too!

    […] with shopping (oops) — but other than that I’ve chosen 34 items and updated them on this post. Getting dressed is a cinch as is packing since I actually like everything and most work well […]
