My Summer Capsule Wardrobe

Thursday, July 14, 2022

Some of the links in this post generate a small commission, but please know that I only post what I love. I couldn't do it any other way! 

The temps are HOT here in Boston and I'm loving it!  Everything improves in the nice weather including my health, social life, and mental health...not to mention my Vitamin D level has increased!

Because my lifestyle has become so casual, I wear a lot of pieces on repeat.  Here's are my recommendations for simple chic pieces to beat the heat without compromising style. 

A white dress

There's nothing as cool, comfortable and feminine as a white dress. I love this one because it's gauze and has a lining so you don't "see through".  It runs true to size, but has a loose fit (which I love).  I'm wearing a 00. 
Hat   I own this one too and love it!

Here are some other dress options too!

I adore this dress! Shop it here. Links for bag and sandals too.  I wore this outfit for the 4th of July and love how the colors pop with the white dress! 

                 Shop here

On major sale!  Shop here. 

A lightweight jumpsuit

This jumpsuit is SO comfortable that it feels like pjs. Seriously! The fabric is lightweight and cool.  Throw a jacket over it for a bit more coverage, or a tee or sweatshirt to make it look like pants!  

Shop here.  Under $60 and lots of other patterns and colors too.  Additional jumpsuits here and here (on sale)

Hat  Mine is old but I love this one! 

Sunnies  On sale for under $20!

Sandals (same brand very similar and on sale!)

A little black dress 

This is the dress that you can dress up or down and will wear on repeat.

Here are some of my favorites:




Straw bag

Leather bags just don't say "summer"! The bag shown above is sold out but here are some fabulous options. 




Comfy and stylish sandals

Comfort is a MUST as I get older. I just can't tolerate unhappy feet.  Here are some ideas for you.

HERE (wearing them above)


HERE  I own them and they are so soft and comfy. They do run big though so go down a half size! 

White jeans

One of my favorite styles this season is a kick flare! You can wear any type of shoe with them I love the summery cropped length. 




The TEE!

Stock up--you need a drawer full!

I love these.

Plain tee here

πŸ’•To support cancer research,  check out this Kicking Cancer in Heels tee! I started Kicking Cancer in Heels (on FB and IG) with Michele Nadeem Baker to inspire, support, and provide resources to women impacted by cancer.  This tee makes a great gift for someone who has been diagnosed or maybe for you to show your support! 10% of all sales will go to The American Cancer Society. 

And THIS amazing tee supports my baby Uncommon Threads.  a nonprofit that I started up 5+ years ago to empower low-income women through fashion and personal development coaching. I wear it with pride

A little wrinkled because I was out in walking in the heat when I took the photo :)

I hope you're enjoying the summer. I've been SO lazy at blogging but with the encouragement of my friend LStudioMedia (aka Lisi), I'm back in action. I'll even get an email subscription list going soon so you don't miss a thing!  

Did you notice that I have a new logo? What do you think?
