Capsule Wardrobe: Summer Edition

July 18, 2015 / by Liz

I had really good intentions of posting this within the first few days of July… but better late than never! Over the past few weeks, I’ve been figuring out which items to include in my summer capsule, and even buying a few new things (which coincided quite well with the current French soldes!). Since mid-June, it’s been pretty hot around here. Like, heat-wave-omg-I’m-melting hot. So I’ve chosen mostly lightweight, breezy items – mainly dresses :) Anyhoo, my summer capsule includes…

…four tops

[1. Coral Tank, Topshop {NEW BUY!} | 2. Sheer Floral Tank, American Apparel | 3. Sheer Tank w/ Leather Trim, Anthropologie | 4. Knit Cardigan, Anthropologie]

…three bottoms

…fifteen dresses
