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 😉

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!

Spring 2020 shoe capsule wardrobe

spring 2020 shoe trends

Are you loving this spring weather as much as I am? It’s so much fun to bring out my spring 2020 shoes! Since temperatures are in the 60’s and 70’s, it is time to ditch the booties, but not quite time to switch to sandals. For the spring season, I am keeping my feet covered, and keeping socks to a minimum.

Let’s talk about spring 2020 shoe trends! Sneakers are hot! I know, it sounds like you’ve heard it before, but spring’s sneaker game for spring 2020 is a little bit different than the street sneakers we saw in recent seasons. For spring 2020, sneakers are clean and white. Look for small metallic touches such as a stripe or small logo. Loud sneakers are over, clean white sneakers are in.

I am a huge espadrille fan. They are inherently soft, and easy to walk in. The two-tone wedges offer a dressy look for days when I want to up my game. One more casual days, my trusted and true ivory wedges are ideal. These multi-color espadrilles offer a small wedge so they can double as flats. They are all comfortable and soft. Love that!

Sometimes we need to dress up! Spring 2020 is all about the square toe, so instead of reaching for a classic pair of pumps from my closet, I splurged on a new and trendy pair for 2020. Since these slingbacks are black, they should carry me from spring to summer to fall. If you are looking for new pumps this season, make sure the toes are square! You’ll love them, there is more room at the top for your toes!

What are your favorite shoe trends this spring 2020 season? Are you excited for clean and white sneakers? Is the square toe a trend you can get behind?

Spring 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe

Spring 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe from left: multi-color metallic Chloe bag (read review here) / small yellow tote (under $200) / black satchel (read review here) / small red baguette (under $250) / large and soft clutch (under $1000, hot IT bag) / Gucci phone case (read review here) / small black bag (read review here) /

OK, my spring 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe might be a little bit larger than what you would expect. That is because, as you know, I am a huge handbag fan!

For the spring 2020 season, I tried to touch on all the handbag trends I love. Metallic bags are huge this season, as well as brightly colored handbags.

small tote spring 2020 handbag trends

Small is in. Totes, satchels, shoulder bags, and more are all shrinking for spring. Be on the lookout for small bags which still fit your wallet, keys, and phone. This cute little yellow tote hits two of spring 2020’s trend buttons; it’s bright yellow, and it’s small. Love that!

This little yellow tote bag also has a zipper closure, and a shoulder strap. Versatility is always a must!

baguette trend spring 2020

The baguette is back, and you don’t have to buy the Fendi to rock this trend. This fun little red bag also comes in other colors. It’s affordable, and has two removable straps. It can be worn as a clutch, a retro style baguette, or a regular shoulder bag. Pick a strap to suit the style which matches your outfit the best! Or the mood you’re in, both work. 😉

Phone cases which are actually handbags are also a hot trend, as well as soft clutches. Remember the Bottega Veneta clutch which was spotted all over the streets of New York during fashion week in September 2019, and again in February 2020? Well, you don’t have to spend over a $1000 to rock this trend. The clutch pictured above is well under $1000 and it’s a hot IT item which stores are having trouble keeping in stock. Snag one while you still can! If not, get yourself on the wait list. It’s hotter than hot!

As far as the spring handbag capsule wardrobe is concerned, there is a bag for every occasion in this capsule. The metallic bag is perfect for evenings, but can be worn during the day too. Same with the small black bag. it’s great for daytime or evenings. The other bags are casual, and work well for different events, occasions, and daily routines. I am currently reaching for my black satchel, this little yellow tote, and my small black bag the most. Which bag would you reach for the most often?
