You guys…who would’ve thought the anti-minimalist girl would’ve put together a Summer Capsule Wardrobe that contains ONLY 20 pieces!!! TWENTY!!!!! I’m the girl that packs 20 things for an overnight trip, I’m the girl that has 3 closets filled with clothes and shoes and bags and still doesn’t consider that enough room, I’m NOT the girl that uses the phrase, “less is more”!
I’ve seen other bloggers do this before and kind of just checked it out, got a little bit of inspiration and scrolled past, but a friend of mine was asking in one of my group chats for a little bit of Summer outfit inspiration. She’s a 30 something mom with 2 kids and wanted outfits that made her feel good and fashionable, but were also functional. Of course the first thing we did was make a Pinterest board (because Pinterest is the BEST) and then I started online window shopping and 2 hours later I had this 20 piece Summer Capsule Wardrobe and 36 outfits ideas!
While picking out these 20 items I tried to pick versatile things, like one-piece bathing suits that can also be worn as body suits, dresses that can also be cover-ups, etc., but I also tried to pick items that you may already have in your closet! While I included shoppable white sneakers, jean shorts and a striped dress here you might already have ALL of those things and more!
I also tried to make this Summer Capsule Wardrobe VERY 2020 approved, because let’s be seriously Summer 2020 is going to be different that any other summer we’ve ever had. So I made sure all the outfits were functional, fashionable and wearable, but also perfect for just hanging around the house too! And while I’m sure most of these items will sell out by next Summer, that doesn’t mean that you can’t save everything for inspiration! This would also be the perfect packing guide for a warm weather trip! Not going to lie I’m definitely going to use this to help me pack for my next vacation (whenever that may be).
And while I know I said that I’m NOT the girl that uses the phrase, “less is more”, but being in Quarantine and sharing my daily outfits on Instagram stories followed by “throwback” photos of how I’ve worn the same pieces out and about in the past has made me realize that while I may not have a minimalist wardrobe by any standards, I do wear and rewear and rewear everything I own!
So without further ado…my H&M Summer Capsule Wardobe: 20 Pieces, 36+ Outfits!
