I recently put together a summer capsule wardrobe, which involved packing away 75% of my closet and committing to only wear the items in my capsule for 30 days. Today I’m sharing an update on what I wore during week three, so you can get a sense of how this whole thing works. You can also catch up on what I wore during week one (here) and week two (here).As a reminder, here’s everything that’s in my capsule (some of my actual items vary slightly). I have a total of 38 items in my summer capsule, and for the third week, I wore 20 of the items. After getting through the third week, there are still six items I’ve yet to wear. The simplicity of the capsule has been great, and yet I’ve been challenged to be creative about my combinations, which is fun.
Week 3 also involved a couple days where I had to switch up my outfits for different events, as well as a weekend of travel to California. I tend to pack light when I travel (I had all of my things in a backpack), but having less to choose from made the packing process a breeze.
So here’s a look at Week 3…
Summer Capsule Wardrobe – Week 3
Day 4Activities: I wore two outfits this day — the first was during the day to run errands and work, and the second was to attend a party in Brooklyn to celebrate the anniversary of an awesome company my dear friend started seven year ago.
Day 6Activities: I wore two outfits on this day also — the first to fly from NYC to L.A., and the second to attend an outdoor wedding that Jordan officiated. I don’t always wear sandals to weddings, but when they are outdoors or when I plan to do a lot of dancing, nothing beats them (also makes for a much lighter suitcase). Also, this photo doesn’t really show the wedding make-up and hair, which definitely dressed the whole thing up.
And that’s Week 3! Just one more week and a couple days to go. Any questions about the capsule process or items in the photos above? What are the things you’re wearing a lot this summer?
