#OOTD June Update ( & #Passion4fashion Link-Up)

 Today I thought it'd just bring my outfits from my Summer Capsule so far.
I started my Summer capsule on June 7th (i think) and so far i have to say it's been tough.. I won't go in to now as i have a complete post planned explaining the pitfalls of capsule wardrobes coming next week, but yeh there has been a couple of struggles (I mean, I use the term 'struggle' loosely here, it is after all just getting dressed every day, not life altering stuff, lol!)
But the one good thing about posting my daily #ootd on my Instagram (do you follow along? Honestly it is my most favourite social platform, lets be IG friends) is that i get to look at what outfits I've created so far from my capsule. And looking at them makes me realise that it's definitely not been all bad, and i am still enjoying a lot of what i have in there.
But like i said, more on that next week.
So far this month I have been loving:

Wearing my boden patterned bomber jacket from last year(above), so cheery. This one is lovely and super similar

 My seasalt jacket had to be brought in to action due to torrential rain, but its happy yellow colour at least made things a little brighter. Also bandanna's.. so fun!

 Madewell Hi Riser jeans with a button up front are new faves, love the interest the button detail gives. Also this cream cardigan (is half off, which i'm a tad upset about, but seriously, grab yourself an absolute beaut of a bargain) is so useful.
My Coral jeans had so many compliments the day i wore them, slightly bright for me but i just sorta love them. They were a wild card in my capsule, but they just work. Also the new Yosa summer scarf is so so pretty!
 Navy chinos and a stripe shirt for a bit of a tomboy vibe, which i loved wearing. Also on constant repeat is my tan Madewell bag which i adore and look like it was made to be worn with my lotus shoes loafers.
 This blush cardigan is so soft and now on sale, it also works so well with khaki jeans and tan esparilles ( i actually wore this two days in a row :)
 Shirt dresses are standard for me come sunshine. I still love this one i bought from Whistles
last year,This one is DIVINE, please can someone buy it and show me so i can shop vicariously through you.

 A simple khaki maxi dress, simple but effective
 My bargain Aldi denim button through skirt, it was only £6.99 and i absolutely love it, this one online is similar and still a great price.
 Mango Black jumpsuit, the perfect wardrobe staple for when you cant decide on a top or a bottom (good option here too)
Denim culottes, Stans and stripes = standard Friday uniform
Floral maxis FTW
