Memorial Day weekend always marks the beginning of summer for me; even if there are still a couple weeks left to the school year, and summer doesn’t officially start until well into June.

We enjoyed temperatures over Memorial Day weekend which hovered well above ninety degrees; so I am going to venture off and say it’s time to bring out the summer 2020 capsule wardrobe, and wear it now!

Summer 2020 is a little bit different than past summer seasons. My camping trip, European vacation, and road trip vacation, have all been cancelled. While a few things have opened up in Santa Clara County, we remain more locked down than other areas of the country. This means I don’t need a lot of clothing this summer for a variety of activities. I have put together two basic capsule wardrobes for the 2020 summer season. They should provide all the outfits I will need this summer season.

The casual summer 2020 capsule wardrobe featured above allows for several outfits with cut-off shorts or linen pants. The black and blue tees are actually meant for working out; but they are cut like regular tee’s, and fit like regular tee’s. This is important this year since outdoor dining will be the way we out this summer. What happens when we eat outside? Well. . .let’s just say the wicking fabric on the fitness tees will come in handy while dining al fresco on hot summer days. I think you catch my drift.

These shorts will look great with sneakers, espadrille slides, and flip flops. The linen joggers look fabulous with espadrille wedges, espadrille slides, and flip flops. You will see my favorite footwear for the summer in my shoe capsule wardrobe tomorrow 😉

Dressy summer 2020 capsule wardrobe

Dressy summer 2020 capsule wardrobe from left: red floral skirt (on major sale!) / black puff sleeve top / gold statement earrings / red baguette bag / black square toe slingback pumps / black v-neck tee / chain link gold cuff bracelet / bold gold chain link bracelet / large gold hoop earrings / black flip flops / large soft clutch / black slide espadrilles /

OK, you might recognize this skirt from my spring capsule wardrobe. Good eyes! Since there will be fewer activities this summer, I decided to re-work this skirt for the summer season. It is easy to transition it from spring to summer by ditching the cardigan sweater or long sleeve sweater, and pairing it with a tee or short sleeve top. It can be worn dressy with the puff sleeve top and slingback heels, or casual with a v-neck tee and flip flops. This is a really versatile skirt; I recommend having one floral or patterned skirt in your summer capsule!

Aside from casual activities, this summer will consist of swimming, hiking, and tennis! Stay tuned for my upcoming shoe, handbag, and outdoor fitness capsule wardrobes!

Wouldn’t you like to know your pajamas are soft and good for the earth? I would! I am loving these soft and cozy pajamas from Cozy Earth. They are made from bamboo; which as you know, is a renewable resource. Bamboo grows so fast! Cozy Earth uses premium quality fabrics, which keeps a comfortable temperature, feels luxurious, and is hypoallergenic. Love that!

The company is also extremely responsible. They know everyone in their supply chain; from where the bamboo is harvested to who is making their labels. Start to finish, this company knows every aspect of their manufacturing process, and ensures it is responsible and good for the Earth.

I am loving these soft, luxurious, and comfortable pajamas. They are a great comfort right now; and I love knowing they are eco-chic too! I definitely need to pick up another pair in another color; and I am eyeing their beautiful sheet sets! This fabric would be heaven to sleep on!

Almaden Quicksilver Park Mine Hill Trail

We are have having so much fun exploring the trails in Almaden Quicksilver Park! We decided to park at the Hacienda Trailhead in order to catch a trail from there. It was fun to see some historical mining equipment near the trailhead, and learn more about the quicksilver mining history in the area. Isn’t the equipment cool!

There are a few trailheads you can catch at the Hacienda entrance, and we decided to hike the Mine Hill Trail. It was a nice, uphill hike with views of Almaden Valley’s more rural areas. We could see historical homes, buildings, and rolling hills. It was really pretty. The trail was wide too, allowing for easy social distancing.

Mine Hill Trail in Almaden Quicksilver Park was slightly busy, but I believe it was due to the fact that hiking is one of the few things open right now.

This trail attracted more than just hikers. We encountered a lot of bike riders, and a few runners and dog walkers. The bikers rode pretty fast, and as a hiker, you had to be aware of them or you would get run over. Just a warning 🙂

Once again, I wore my balaclava as a mask. It’s easy to slip up and down when people are around. I would say 80% of the people on the trail were wearing masks. If you go, be ready to turn your head if someone comes by without a mask.

Shop my hiking gear:

This was a great trail for my kids to hike on. It wasn’t too steep, and they were able to keep up with only a couple of breaks. There was a mix of bright sun and shade during the hike. It was a comfortable hike, and it felt like medium intensity. We really enjoyed the Mine Hill Trail!

I hope you are getting out there and enjoying the nice weather! To find the Hacienda Trailhead in San Jose, take Almaden Expressway to Almaden Road. Continue all the way through the historical part of Almaden. Shortly after the museum, which you can’t miss, you will see the parking lot for the trailhead. There are several trails you can catch there. We will definitely go back!

Thanks for stopping by!
