Summer Capsule Wardrobe

New season, new capsule wardrobe. I've actually created mine at the beginning of the month, but sharing it little late is better than sharing it never, right?

First thing I thought when creating the wardrobe was the fact I'd be working in the office the whole summer. So I would need office-appropriate pieces that would still be cute for the summer. I have pieces I wouldn't wear to work in my normal closet, but this one is mostly some everyday pieces I can build my looks around. I aim to use at least one of the pieces for each of my everyday looks this summer. This will make me more creative with clothing since I will have to learn more about pairing the pieces differently. Besides office, I need to keep in mind that summer in Finland can be anything for 30 degree Celsius to close to zero and halestorm. Recently we've been blessed with loads of summery warmth, but that could change any day so I need to have jeans and blazer at ready for those occasions.

My color scheme is bit more all over the place in summer, because I like my florals and prints in the summer and that adds quite a bit of color even though the base colors would be somewhere around white and black.

As I think I mentioned in my first capsule wardrobe post, my goal is to have less clothes in my wardrobe in the end. This has helped me to get rid of pieces I had held on to, because once I do these capsules it's easier to see which kind of style I go for, and this also gives me ideas where I want my style to be. I've so far given up on some old pieces I had held on to for the wrong reasons, and pieces that are nice and in good condition but don't really do much for the big picture. I hope my Instagram speaks for the style I like and want to have at least a bit. I'm actually talking really soon about one of the ladies whose style inspires me a ton, and what are some points I've taken seeing her style. So stay tuned for that real soon. This experiment also encourages me to alter the clothes I have to better suit my style, I currently have a pile of band tees and such which I need to cut a bit to make them more me, so that I would get more use out of them.

Soon I will probably be planning my Autumn wardrobe, and that means I will probably be hunting some pieces online to complete my style as well as donating/selling old things so that the total would be less clothes after the cycle. If this experiment goes right, I should start to have less clothes after each time I switch my capsule, because I will see the items I didn't touch the whole season and therefore it's easier for me to get rid of them. Next time I could try to tell you about the things I ended up giving away in the process of the switch, if you're into that.

Have you tried having a capsule wardrobe? And, what is your favorite clothing piece currently? Let me know in the comments!

That's all for today, I hope you enjoyed this one and I was so happy the other day when one of my girlfriends messaged me telling she's considering a capsule wardrobe and I could actually help her out a bit. Things like that make me so happy, knowing that anything I've said or done has at least the tiniest bit helped someone. In the next post, I'll probably talk to you about my current favorite false lashes, so stay tuned for that if you like makeup! Also, for more updates you can follow me on Instagram where I post daily outfits and more.

Have an awesome day ♥

    1. Skinny jeans really are the best, I nearly only wear skinny ones when I wear jeans! Glad to hear you liked the vibe of the closet, I've been enjoying the items there a lot :)
