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!

Despite the fact that the economy is opening up, many of us are still working from home, and spending a ton of time at home. While we would love to give others the impression that we are getting dressed in the morning, let’s face it, often times we are lounging around in our pajamas. You know you are!

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!

For a limited time, you can snap up a pair of these eco-chic pajamas for yourself-at 50% off! Love that! Head over to CozyEarth.com and use coupon code CATHYO50 to save 50% off your new pair of luxurious and soft, Cozy Earth pajamas! Let me know which color you choose!

Not the pink panther

wearing: gold statement earrings / summer lipstick / black tee / pink blazer / black snake buckle belt / light wash skinny jeans / summer nail polish / bold statement ring / soft black clutch / wedges espadrilles (on major sale!) /

Oh heeeeeyyyy!! I’m wearing bold earrings and a blazer outside of a Zoom meeting! Yay! I decided I am tired of my ultra-casual, quarantine wardrobe. It is time to wear outfits again! This outfit made life feel normal-despite being paired with a mask. I couldn’t bring myself to photograph the mask with the outfit. I took these photos in front of my garage door so that I could smile and feel normal; at least in the photos.

Last week was the busiest week I have had since we started our shelter-in-place here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Like the idiot that I am, I was running in my house in socks; we have a hardwood floor. I think you know where this is going. Long story short, I had to go out into the world and get an x-ray. It looks like I injured my leg muscle, but nothing too bad. I know better than to run in the house; I mean, I tell my kids that all the time. Not quite sure what I was thinking, but it happened! haha I guess this quarantine thing is messing with my brain!

I have to admit, it was weird out there! I have only been going to the supermarket near my house, so going several miles away to my doctor’s office, then an imaging office, was weird. Everyone was in masks, and when I entered the building they took my temperature and had me use hand sanitizer. Everything appeared really clean; so I felt safe. Despite feeling safe, nothing will feel normal until businesses can reopen, and people are back to work.

At least wearing an outfit while going out made me feel good, and normal. Everyone is out and about in sweats and workout clothing. I need to get out of that cycle, and start dressing up a little bit; even if it’s still a super casual look. I’m watching other states and areas starting to reopen. I am looking forward to the day we get there too! How are things where you are?
