Capsule Wardrobe: Week 4 Outfits

I’m here with the final week of outfits from my summer capsule wardrobe! It’s been an experimental time of having packed away 75% of my closet and choosing to live with just 38 items (tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes) for 30 days. If you’ve never heard of a capsule wardrobe, or you’re considering it for yourself, I’m sharing my outfits so you can get a sense of how this whole thing works. You can catch up on what I wore during week one (here), week two (here), and week three (here).

As a reminder, here’s everything that’s in my capsule (some of my actual items vary slightly). I have 38 items in my summer capsule, and for the fourth week, I wore 17 of the items.

Week 4 was a pretty relaxed week, and I tried to make a conscious effort to wear things I hadn’t worn up until this point. It’s hard to believe that with a wardrobe so small, there were still seven or eight items I hadn’t worn.

Here’s a look at Week 4…

Day 1Activities: Church, followed by a little sight-seeing around L.A.

Wearing: Blue floral chiffon dress from Forever 21 (old), Cardigan (similar), Sandals from boutique in Jamaica.

Day 2Activities: Flying from L.A. to NYC.

Wearing: T-shirt from Sidney & SonsLight blue mom jeansWhite converse sneakers, bracelet made by Haitian artisans

Day 3Activities: Working from home.

Wearing: Floral t-shirt, Distressed denim shorts (sold out, similar), and these sandals. *Side note: When I looked at this photo, I definitely thought there was a piece of fuzz on my screen and tried to wipe it off before realizing what I was seeing was actually a random scraggly grey hair popping off the front of my head! Smh.

Day 4Activities: Meetings in the office and date night with Jordan at a ramen spot we’d been wanting to check out.

Wearing: Navy maxi dress (similar), these sneakers, and demin jacket (similar).

Day 5Activities: Playdate for Jameson at the park; meeting two girlfriends for dinner in Soho.

Wearing: Denim lyocell button-down (similar), Black high-rise jeans, Gold oxfords (similar), purse is Marc Jacobs (old).

Day 6Activities: Working from home, taco lunch date with Jordan, chores at home.

Wearing: Black tank topBlack high-rise jeans, straw fedora (similar), necklace from Stella & Dot, bracelets from India, sandals from boutique in Jamaica.

Day 7Activities: Meet ups with friends.

Wearing: Silk floral blouse from Anthropologie (old), Blue high-rise jeans, sandals from boutique in Jamaica

And that’s Week 4! Thanks to so many of you for cheering me on as I posed awkwardly to capture the past four weeks of outfits. :-) Hopefully you found it helpful to see the different options that can come from a small wardrobe.

I’ll be putting together a wrap up post early next week with my thoughts and tips on creating a capsule wardrobe, so let me know if you have any specific questions you’d like me to answer!

    I love that you took this challenge! You did an amazing job rearranging your clothing to make “new” outfits. It was really great following your journey. And your poses got better with time too :-)
