I am lightening up for the summer 2021 season! For my summer 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe, I am using my basket bag as my carry-all for days when I need to carry a lot of things, as well as for beach days, or when I wear espadrilles. It looks fabulous with espadrilles.

In addition to my beloved basket bag, I am deep into the pouch trend this summer! I started last year with my large black pouch, then I picked up this cute little yellow pouch with a cross body strap for some variety. Then, I broke down and splurged on this dark brown pouch with a chunky chain. All three pouches work with different outfits and serve different style purposes, yet they are all functional and fun to wear. I love a soft pouch!

Of course, no summer 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe would be complete without the 2021 IT bag! My beloved Prada Cleo is a fabulous everyday hobo bag which is just large enough to fit my wallet, phone, keys, mask, hand sanitizer, and keys. It’s also lightweight and easy to wear over my shoulder. Love! You will see me in this bag a lot over the summer season!

As always, my handbag capsule wardrobe contains classic bags which can be worn throughout the year, regardless of seasons; with the exception of the basket bag which is a spring/summer bag. My basket bag is classic, thankfully, so it will be easy to pull out next spring and summer; and for many spring/summer seasons thereafter! Love investment bags!

Summer is almost here! The first thing in my closet ready for summer, was my summer shoe capsule! I only purchased one pair of shoes for the summer 2021 season; these square toe loafers. Square toe loafers are a huge emerging shoe trend, and I want to be ready for the trend to be on fire this fall. This pair of loafers is perfect since they are a neutral hue which plays well with both summer, and fall color palettes. Plus, they are soft, and comfortable to walk around in. Love that!

The yellow slides, black slides, and sculpted heel slides are pulled from my spring capsule. They worked well in the spring season, and will continue to work well in the summer season. The puffy shoe trend, and comfort slide trend, are both still relevant in the summer season, so they are easy shoes to continue to wear. Plus, sculpted heels are gaining momentum on the streets, and will likely continue well into the fall season. This is pair of sculpted heel mules is a great investment to wear now and throughout the rest of the year.

Summer 2021 sneakers

Summer 2021 sneakers capsule from left: Gucci platform sneakers / grey boat shoes (under $100!)

I can never get enough sneakers! These Gucci platform sneakers are super comfortable, and have been in my shoe collection for a couple of years now. They are perfect for days which require walking, travel, and general everyday comfort. They will continue to get a lot of wear from me! In addition, these canvas boat shoes serve the same purpose, but are much more comfortable on warm summer days. They can be worn without socks, and offer coolness plus comfort while walking. They have already been getting a lot of wear during the spring season, I anticipate they will get a ton of wear this summer as temperatures continue to warm up. They are a must-have this summer for travel and walking days!

Summer 2021 espadrilles

Espadrilles are a must-have every summer. Not only are they soft and comfortable for walking, they are cool on hot days, and allow for easy walking on the beach. I cannot live without espadrilles in the summer! This pair of wedge espadrilles is a summer go-to for me. I have owned them for several years, and have purchased them in black and a darker tan color throughout the years. The ivory hue is my favorite. It seems to go with everything. Plus, they are priced under $100 which is always fabulous!

Another classic pair of must-have espadrilles are these classic flats. I have them in both black and grey. They are comfortable, easy to walk in, and ideal for hot summer, casual days. They go with shorts, casual skirts, sundresses, and pants. Love!

This summer, since things are opening up, and I plan to go places, I decided to invest in a pair of leather espadrilles. This tan pair is a great neutral hue which is easy to wear with almost anything. They are very comfortable and look more structured for lunches and daytime events than the canvas pairs. They are a great alternative for being casual, yet put-together. They are also from my spring capsule, and I have loved wearing them. I may pick up an ivory pair as the summer progresses. The ivory is a really pretty color, and the style is classic, so they can be worn every summer. Love!

What shoes are you wearing this summer? This is my summer 2021 capsule wardrobe, which may seem larger than my usual shoe capsule wardrobes, but they are mostly repeat shoes from spring and previous seasons; so this summer shoe capsule is a culmination of several investment pairs of shoes. I love a good investment shoe which can be worn season after season, year after year! It’s a great way to save money; so you know, we can buy handbags. haha

Stay tuned for my summer handbag capsule coming later this week! Check out my summer capsule wardrobe, which I posted last week.

It already feels like summer outside! Although I am just posting my summer 2021 capsule wardrobe today, I have already started to wear many of these pieces. The weather has been just right! Plus, I really love this capsule for summer. The neutrals and subtle colors just feel right.

The summer 2021 season is still on the casual side as everyone emerges from quarantine, and into a post-pandemic lifestyle. We are all still craving comfort, while at the same time, we want to dress up! It’s quite the catch-22.

In order to achieve a comfortable, yet on-trend look, I picked up a few tee’s with trendy touches such as ruching, puff sleeves, and texture. These tee’s were all priced under $50, and feel like comfortable t-shirt’s from the back of the closet. Love that!

Soft and comfortable tee’s are perfect for everyday wear. Plus, these tee’s look very fashionable and hot off the runway. They can easily be paired with skirts, shorts, and jeans! I have also found they are easy to dress up or depending on how they are styled. I love a comfortable tee with a skirt and heels. It gives a dressed up look, yet offers the freedom and comfort of a good ‘ol t-shirt. Perfection!

In order to add a little bit of structure to my summer 2021 capsule wardrobe, I added in this beautiful knit sweater. It has a really pretty knit pattern plus wide sleeves. This sweater easily dresses up shorts for a backyard BBQ or looks polished with a skirt for a party or dinner out. It’s the perfect summer knit top! Love!

Most of my jewelry for summer 2021 is from my spring collection with the exception of this cute little butterfly necklace. Butterflies are a huge trend in jewelry for the summer 2021 season, so this affordable necklace, priced under $20, is perfect for rocking the butterfly jewelry trend this season.
