Well, I wrote this post at the beginning of the week whilst being super organised and efficient and then accidentally deleted the whole bloody thing. AND i’ve only just realised it now..
Professional blogger I think not.. Plus I’m super sleepy and can’t even remember what i talked about when I first wrote this post.Typical.
Let’s carry on regardless shall we?
So this is the last of the summer capsule wardrobe update.. woohoo!!
I’ve mentioned it briefly before, but the summer capsule was tough due to bi-polar British weather and needing raincoats one minute then summer dresses the next.
There was also still a handful of things i didn’t wear, or only wore once (chino’s, jumpsuit and a black dress) but I can hand on heart say that most of my pieces got a lot of wear.
I also worked on a more flexi-capsule process what with looking further in to the #30wearscampaign and wanting to go wear out of some of my older pieces.
In total i probably worked to about 45-50 pieces, which is still more than i originally intended but a lot less than i’ve previously worked at when i had hundreds of pieces crammed in my wardrobe.
And I definitely spent a lot less this season on clothes.. again a huge Plus point for me and my bank balance.
I think this summer I was a huge fan of Maxi Dresses, the ultimate easy to wear piece,
Boho Peasant Blouses, again, laid back vibes were my jam this season.
And my flared jeans, which were a surprise and not in my original line up, but very much worn and appreciated after I added them in from storage (my pair are old, but there are some stunning ones here.
And now I’m giving myself a few days off and wearing whatever I fancy, whilst on holiday with my family.
We’re off to Cornwall once again, and I absolutely can’t wait. The weather forecast in questionable so may have to take a whole array of outfits, but honestly? I may just end up in a slouchy hoodie and jeans all week, just lapping up every minute, happily with my family.
What have been your favourite items this summer?
Wishing you all a very happy Friday… Here’s to the weekend with loved ones!
