Summer Capsule Wardrobe

Summer is my very favorite season for fashion.  I love that I don’t have to wear a million layers and you can really simplify your outfits if you want to.  My default tends to be a white t-shirt or tank top and a pair of denim shorts, but I also like to take those pieces and mix them up with high waisted shorts or lightweight pants, or throw on a more ornate top when the occasion calls for it.  I don’t know if this is exactly a “capsule wardrobe” but these are the classic pieces that I turn to regularly when the weather is warm.  They’re timeless so you can buy them once and then wear them year after year.
