Summer Capsule Wardrobe 2019

This year I have made quite a lot of my summer capsule items myself.  I decided that I would use the following colours :

Pink

Teal

Blue/Denim/Navy 

White 

Purple

I haven’t stuck to this rigidly as I have carried over some items from Spring (my mustard trousers)

I have only bought 4 items and I have made 7 of the items – not all this year.

The capsule is comprised of 29 pieces :

Dresses – 4 – Blue chambray sleeveless dress – I made this last year. Its easy to wear and is very flattering. The pink/teal/blue floral stretch one below, I made to wear to a wedding in Sept but I want to wear it before that as I love it. The white denim linen dress I bought from Next about 3 years ago. a real bargain at £22 but I have worn it every summer and it still looks good. The teal dress is the one I have just finished for the Minerva Crafts Blog. Its is really comfortable and so easy to wear.

Jackets -2 – Just the denim jacket and the navy blazer – I am looking for a white denim jacket to make a change from the white one but it needs to be from eBay and cheap!

Cardigans – 4 – I have included my 2 lovely Boden cashmere cardigans (pink and light blue) as they are so soft and summery,  and cost a fortune, a few years ago. I also have included a white one I bought ages ago and which comes out every summer plus a pink floaty one I bought in Cornwall a couple of years ago.

Sleeveless Tops – 3 – One cream floral one – bought from Primark last year, a blue floral I made last summer and 1 navy plain one I  bought from M&S last year .

T-Shirts – 4- Pink, Pale Blue, Light Teal. I bought these all this year when I was doing my colour matching exercise except for the pin/white stripe one which I made this Spring.

Tops – 2 classic cotton white t-shirt which I made and a purple and white one in the same style.

Trousers – 4 – Cropped jeans – bought last summer from Gap. The cropped white trousers and the white linen trousers, I have had both of these for ages. Mustard trousers – I made these in the Spring.

Shorts – 2 – White ones just bought from M&S, Blue stripe ones – I made them a couple of months ago. ak+fc2wnS4+i7BjjLx%rMA

Skirt -1 – This is the only skirt I own – a denim one which I have worn all year round. It cost me £50 last year but its been worn so much, I think itv was worth it.

Shoes –  4 – 3 pairs sandals and 1 pair white tennis shoes

Accessories – 1 Panama hat – this was Marks but he didn’t wear it so I pinched it. 4 handbags which I already had.

Jewellery and watches – I am not a great lover of too much jewellery but I have enough old pieces to get me through the summer.

In case you were wondering, I do have a smaller stay at home/yoga/walking the dog/gardening/ lounging wardrobe but they are not very interesting 🙂 so I’ve not included them.
