My Capsule Wardrobe: Most worn this Summer


I’m now three seasons into my capsule wardrobe experience and I finally got around to shooting some outfit pictures. Summer has involved the smallest switch up so far (partly due to being over-optimistic about the weather when choosing my Spring pieces!) so rather than go through my whole wardrobe I decided to share with you my three most worn pieces.

Pinafore – New Look

Part of the reason I wanted to start the capsule wardrobe was to help me develop a style. However, that doesn’t mean that when a trend comes along you can’t buy into it, and the denim pinafore is definitely the statement piece of my wardrobe this Summer. It’s been nice and cool for the ocassional balmy British summer day and can just as easily be teamed with tights for days when there has been a chill in the air.

Jersey Bardot Top – Primark

I love a basic tee and there have been more than a few in every seasonal switch up of my wardrobe since I began the capsuling concept. This Bardot top has been a great alternative to a simple t-shirt and the stripes keep it looking classic. It’s versatile too; I love it with the pinafore but have also worn it with a high waist pencil skirt, shorts or jeans.

White Leather All Star – Converse

Aside from a two week holiday in a much warmer climate, I’ve barely worn sandals this Summer. Even if the weather has been gorgeous, a rain cloud is never far away in England! Converse have been the perfect alternative for keeping feet dry, especially these leather alternative to the original canvas offering (which I have also found far more comfortable). Bonus – they go with everything which gives them a gold star as far as the capsule wardrobe is concerned.
