Summer vacation has arrived! This means I needed to put my summer capsule wardrobe in order. This summer, we plan to stay casual as we have a lot of plans surrounding my daughter who heads to college in the fall. In order to be comfortable, my summer capsule wardrobe is casual, and can easily be worn with sneakers; a shoe style I am wearing a lot lately due to my injured foot.

Shorts and tee’s are summer staples, so I found a few tee’s which are slightly elevated with puff sleeves or tie sleeves. This way, I can stay casual without looking sloppy. Shorts are a must-have in the warm summer months, so these two pairs will serve me well! I always like to have pants in the summer too. Sometimes we get cool foggy days or mornings. Pants are perfect for the those days! These joggers are perfect because they move away from being everyday denim, yet offer just as much comfort as jeans. Love that!

This summer, people are dressing up a little bit more. After all, we are free from quarantine! So, in order to keep things casual and comfortable, yet not look like loungewear, I found this super comfortable dress priced under $50. I originally purchased it in blue, and I loved it so much, I bought two more! I now have it in black and stripes. It is really flattering, comfortable, and ideal for hot summer days. I plan to live in these dresses! LOVE! If you are looking for a fuss-free summer dress, this is the one!

Spring 2022 capsule wardrobe

Spring feels different this year. Perhaps it is because we are moving away from the pandemic, dropping the mask mandate, and enjoying the scent of spring. Aren’t the cherry blossoms beautiful? Also, the pear trees; despite the allergy inducing pollen they create, those white blossoms are so pretty! I am so happy spring 2022 is here! Yay!

Since spring has sprung, and the blossoms are everywhere, it is time to talk about my spring 2022 capsule wardrobe! I have two capsules this spring season, one casual capsule wardrobe, and one power suit capsule. Normally my capsule wardrobe builds on itself from season to season, but I am down forty pounds since last April, so I was forced to replace most of my wardrobe, and this means my clothing capsule is mostly new. While all that shopping is fun, the point of a capsule is to build on one’s wardrobe each season without buying all-new; but this season I had no choice. Moving forward, these pieces will be built on each season since I am stable in my weight now and will maintain my current size.

For the spring 2022 season, my capsule wardrobe consists of classic boyfriend jeans, colored jeans (because this is a huge trend), and brightly colored tee’s. Color is in! I love the cheerful look these pieces bring to my closet. I love mixing and matching these pieces together for a cheery spring look. The only mix and match I am not doing is the yellow tee with the beige jeans, I don’t like that look. The beige jeans look fabulous with green, neutrals, and pink. Love!

Spring 2022 power suit capsule

I am sure you have heard; the power suit is back. The power suit is perfect for a capsule wardrobe since it can be broken up into so many different outfits! I decided to invest in one classic black suit, and one trendy blue suit. These pieces can be mixed and matched into four different suit combinations. Plus, the blazers can be paired with jeans and shorts later in the season. This green top is perfect for adding some spice to a suit. It can also be worn with trousers or jeans for a going-out-at-night look. It’s a great evening top to keep as part of a spring and summer capsule wardrobe.

You cannot go wrong with layering tees. These black and white tees’ fit nicely underneath the blazers, and don’t add bulk or warmth. That is perfect for warm spring days. One huge trend with power suits right now is to wear a cropped top underneath the blazer. While this looks fabulous on some people, it isn’t really my style, so I am sticking to layering tee’s.

The look for jewelry right now is simple and understated, which means a blank neckline. Since I wore power suits back in the day, a blank neckline is weird to me. I have the urge to pair my blazers with vintage neckerchiefs from the 1990s, so stay tuned to see how that plays out. Since I wore suits all the time to work in the 1990s, I also have the urge to pair blazers with necklaces, but that isn’t a thing right now. Think simple and chic. Let the brightly colored blazer do the statement-making. Let’s see if I can do this without a scarf or necklace. haha

Winter 2022 capsule wardrobe

Winter 2022 capsule wardrobe from top left: periwinkle cardigan sweater / black puff sleeve top (under $50) / large gold hoop earrings (under $100) / silver and periwinkle door knocker earrings / purple and gold earrings / faux leather pants / dark wash denim jeans / G buckle belt / grey scarf / berry long sleeve tee (great for layering, under $50) / charcoal jeans / pictured below: black puffer jacket (more color options here) /

Whew it’s cold this year! I don’t know if the temperatures really are lower this year, but it sure feels a lot colder to me! When it’s cold, I love staying warm with a scarf, a good jacket, and a cozy sweater. My winter 2022 capsule wardrobe is cozy and casual; exactly what the winter season needs.

After the holiday season, life is fairly casual unless I am jetting off to New York Fashion Week, which I am following from home again this February due my children’s schedules. If I do need to look somewhat dressy, these faux leather pants will be perfect for keeping me warm and looking elevated. Love!

Of course, since periwinkle is the color of the year, I had to snap up this fabulous sweater for the winter season. It will also carry me into the spring season since we still get cool temperatures in the early spring months, as well as in the evenings later in the year. A cardigan sweater is a great item for layering in the spring and the summer; you never know when the fog will roll in around here!

I prefer a skinny jean, or classic cut silhouette in my denim when I am pairing it with jackets, coats, and sweaters. I feel like it gives off a more flattering silhouette than the trendy wide leg pants we have been seeing. Also, at my height, wide leg jeans overwhelm my frame, so I prefer sticking to skinny jeans and classic cuts.
