My Capsule Wardrobe Picks

minimal closet

While planning my capsule, I knew I didn’t need much in terms of buying new as I had just picked up some new things and already have a lot of great basics. I did need a pair of slip on sandals and a black shrug and I’d really been wanting a full black midi skirt and knew it would be versatile this Summer.

Now let’s talk about that neon pink beauty below. Impractical? Maybe, but I’ve been lusting after it forever. I decided that my capsule could use an injection of colour and fun and nothing else compared to that skirt for me. By the time I was ready to say yes though, my size was sold out! Oh, the horror. By some miracle though, it finally happened to come back in stock last week, also on the day of a 50% off sale! If that’s not fate, I don’t know what is.

My allowed budget for these four items was $200 and purchasing everything on sale allowed me to get them all for $197! Just under the gun…I’m pretty stoked about that.

I’m always such a lover of black but I really wanted to make sure I picked enough colorful pieces for Summer so I don’t get stuck in a rut. I can brighten up things with shoes and accessories so that helps too. I also wanted to include a few layering pieces because my office is often freezing and 9 times out of 10 on a Summer day at work, you’ll still find me wearing a blazer or cardigan over my sundress.

I have included photos of the items I chose for a visual reference. If I couldn’t find the item online anymore I found a photo that was as close as possible.
